Hey everyone.. If you all have photos I would really appreciate it... but I'm try to decide between a CHARGESPEED FRP ROOF FIN which is a little bit bigger or a APR Performance Vortex Generator which looks a little clean in my option.

I think either one really compliments our Evo's Opposed to the second wing our Subaru counterparts have.

Any suggestions?!?!

i decided to go with the smaller fin vg (rexspeed so no carbon but similar size to apr's). I've been happy with it.

I have the APR VG. I doubt there's much difference between the two.

As a bit of an aside, an anecdote about my VG. I have noticed while driving in the morning during these cold months that my rear window, when it starts to fog, seems to fog in the general shape of the fins of the VG; that is, I can see splits of fog form on the window in the spaces between the fins, each seemingly angled like the fin above it.

vg and roof fins look lame anyway
Do you like the stock look better?? Or is there something else your into?

Also has anyone seen those single shark fins, they replace the antenna .. i see them on BMWs a lot..

Heres my setup yes only 6 fins instead of 8, but I like the look and spacing. I find it very clean compared to others and I only made them for $15 bucks so i dont have much invested into the project.

For starters, they're backwards.
Lol, absurdity.

OP, understand that the VG is almost totally an aesthetic choice. Our cars will not benefit in any meaningful way from the addition of a vortex generator, as the shape of the spoiler and the roofline negate the necessity of having one.

If you do decide to go through with your purchase, go with APR or Chargespeed. Avoid Rexpeed as their quality is oftentimes hit or miss.
