bigkraig will become famous soon enough
The photos on the site look like the OEM wing in a bunch of dealerships. There is only a few pictures on there that look like they are actually the aftermarket wing, and they look like they took the photo with a potato.. i'd be wary of the fitment.

If you are on the West Coast, you are crazy not to buy from them.

I don't track anymore and don't often drive at 150mph. Any thoughts.
My friend and I went to Wicked's showroom about a month ago, and I ordered the 991 GT3 kit, and my buddy ordered the ducktail. Both my GT3 kit and his ducktail look great, we had Wicked do our paint and install.

The duck tail is my personal favorite, but it was a bit too subtle for me, I wanted to go with something more aggressive. The fitment was excellent, no problems at all, and the paint finish really did look Wicked. Their products are also much higher quality from the crap I've bought in the past. I would recommend going with Wicked Motor Works. The price is great too, compared to the OEM or other AM companies.

Here is my friend's duck tail by Wicked.

If you start sticking spoilers on a car, a couple things to note:

* Stay in balance. If you add a rear spoiler, they frequently require a front air dam to be aerodynamically correct and in balance. If you don't think a little spoiler can do much, just look at the first gen Audi TT and how they had to put a small spoiler on the back of all of them to keep them safe at speed.

* Spoilers are great for downforce at that track but add drag. Lots of drag. I'd be willing to wager that ducktail takes 5 mph + off the car at max speed. For on the street, its going to slow your car down.

* If you're going to do it, and have a choice - ALWAYS stay with OEM on cars this expensive. You will get OEM quality and if you go to sell the car it may won't hurt the resale.

I've seen several posts complaining about customer service from Wicked. You may want to do a search. Or just look at this forum a bit closer.

I'm with DRC (post above). For this kind of money on such an expensive car, you should stick with OEM parts.

Go with OEM. Do not go aftermarket. Don't be Wicked!

The moderator just confirmed - a positive customer review in another thread is actually the same IP as wicked motor works. Beware of wicked. Shameless stuff.
