Canards have arrived. They are so nice. Unfortunately no hardware in the box for them either.

Where’d you purchase the varis wing from?
Purchases through Vivid Racing. Call and ask for Tyler or message him on the boards here under 'Vivid Racing'. Everything gets drop shipped through Bulletproof Automotive but they don't offer the best prices themselves. It's a bit strange.

I love the 2 pc side skirts. Can't wait to see them in person.

The wing is growing on me as I watch more videos of it.

@boosted180sx the Varis gang is growin!

I was debating on the Arising II bumber + canards, but decided on the Arising I CF Lip. I just put in for a quote for the 2pc side skirts. How much did end up getting them for?

Yeah the skirts look great.
im personally just not a fan of gt wings on 4 doors. I think GT wing looks great on coupes.
If i had to get a wing, i'd have to go mugen. The non carbon one ofc because i cant afford the carbon one LOL.

:beer::beer:
friend of mine is getting the skirts so im waiting to get one till he has it on so i can see the height in relation to the front bumper with my evs lip/splitter. If it looks off then i might just have to wait till my front bumper gets beat to get the bumper and the skirts.

I toned down all the Red's to see what it'd look like without the red stripe and I actually love the look that I might paint my calipers silver lol

Yeah, I think the APR GTC300 would look better here. But that's just me, it still looks good OP. I went with the APR and the proportions are so nice. I also think it could be the solid uprights on this one, I like how the APR ones are milled out.

That bumper and the canards though.... :headbang: :headbang:

Basically what mine will look like. How long has your friend been waiting for side skirts? It sounds like it'll all be on the next shipment that's 2 months out.

I still don't know what to do with the rear. Varis may or may not even be making a rear bumper replacement. Was thinking about 2020 rear vents, Revel GT rear bumper CF applique, and Varis diffuser in CF for the meantime

a few months. Typical varis wait times lol.
I already have the varis rear diffuser so i'm gonna keep that. I might have to get the seibon rear replacement though because it just doesn't look right with it mounted onto the plastic oem garbage. I'm kind of scared to buy seibon cause of the fitment however ... (especially at that price lol)
