Benetec CF wing

I finally installed the Benetec wing on my Elise last week. I like it and it works.

Looks good

I like the look. I also like the front splitter. How much clearance is there under the nose? Did you raise the suspension?

Thanks! I have not raised my suspension. I will be lowering it as soon as I install the Exige cup springs.

Thanks. Yes we are working on it. Since they are not clear coated or painted we have to do all that. The paint shop I am using is very busy. I only trust these guys with the CF work since they have done all of my work so far.

Hope it is a clear coat, the quality of the CF panels look to good to cover with paint.

It will be a combination of the two.

That wing looks good. By "and it works.", can one assume that it actually generates downforce? Do you by chance know how much down force it generates at what speed?

The best looking wing money can buy for an Exige. Be prepared to part ways with $4000+ though..
