Carbon Canards, Yes or No?

Mock fitting. Should I, or shouldn't I?

Hi mate from the side they look nice ,but from the front I don't like at all.Great looking car but they just don't look right ,it might be because the cars is white they just stand out a little to much.When you look at the car from the front it the first thing that seems to catch your eye.But hey if you like them go for it .If it was my car I would leave them off,sorry just being honest.

Not a fan at all, lovely looking car though which would look even better without those canards. The worst ones though, IMHO are the Garage Defend canards, they are just silly and pointless.

Amen to that.... Saw a fella at Perfect Touch once in a silver 33. I don't think anyone had the heart to tell him how daft it looked. Like knight rider in pursuit mode... Basically ruined the cars looks

Most canards do NOTHING for a car,they are only asthetic mods and Im ot a fan of them at all.

Also they are illegal and you could be in serious trouble with the law/courts if a padestrian cut themselves off these canards.Big law suit too.

I am a fan of canard and am looking for some myself.
But as a couple have said they need to be a bit more curved.
I also think one long and one small one together look best.

Think Mines canards..

No way. Leave your car as is. it looks perfect... anymore and it will look 'overdone'.
