I have the OEM wing right now. But I like how the mugen wing looks. It seems to make the car look wider. The OEM wing to me makes to car look skinny and high. What do you guys think I should do; Keep my OEM wing, or Get the mugen(or replica
) one??

You can probably sell your wing for at least $100 on eBay. I say go for it if you're sure you want to spend the money on cosmetics as opposed to performance. I'm not knocking cosmetics, as almost all my mods are cosmetic. I just couldn't justify laying for $300 or $400 for something that will do nothing to increase performance. The Mugen wing does look nice though--if it was free I'd definitely take it over USDM OEM.

Only the original mugen has the LED though. I forgot about that. I have a SH so I need the 3rd brake light. mmm... I will have to think if the cosmetic benifits are worth it like you said...

You sure? I think it may look out of place just because we're used to seeing it with the full kit. It would probably look fine to every other car nut (who's not a Prelude fanatic).

I plan to get the RS kit when I can afford to get all of that. It might seem out of place with a more aggressive kit, and a more smooth type wing like you said. Oh well I won't have the money for a little while, and that will give me some time to photoshop all of the ideas I have floating around in my head...

Just get a replica and trade some (who has a base) for their rear deck and brake light.

But yes, you do need that 3rd light to pass inspection unfortunately. (atleast in VA u do)

Well you see, i like the Type S wing. But i was talkin with a buddy of mine, real smart fellow, and he was saying how the SH wing is so great because it actually starts to create downforce. At like 100 mph it supposedly starts to really make force. Thats why im gonna keep my SH wing, i do lots of 100+ driving. Just a lil tid bit of info for all you guys out there.

I think that it is a federal requirement. I am not 100% sure though...

are you sure the oem wing adds downforce? because from the car reviews i have read the base and sh model have the same 140mph top speed. if the sh wing created downforce the sh should be slower than the base, no?

you can't go wrong with the mugen, oem, or the type S spoiler. They all go well with the mugen rears. If you have one of these already, not worth the money to switch.
