I actually don't have any projects lined up for this weekend. Spent yesterday evening cleaning up my garage trying to get everything neat and organized for next weekend when hopefully I will have my head back. Put in for vacation Friday and Tuesday to make it a nice 5 day period over which I hope to make some serious progress on my car.

I like a nice fitment but I care more about function and performance than looks. The "stance" game is just stupid to me.

Nice - I did buy the Chinese V style wing (back in 2017) and had fitment issues. I got it on there, but doesn't sit flush to the trunk - Probably because the Chinese market ATS L model has slightly different dimensions than the American market ATS. Maybe the "L" stands for Longer? lol

I don't think you can get the older versions, so the most recent one is what you can buy.
