    Im not sure what looks better. The s281 looks sick but looks alright with the top down... S351's also looks good as its the perfect size for the rear saleen bumper... Not sure what looks better. Matte black s281 or white s351

    personally I like the look of the S281 more. Never big on the S351 spoiler, if I was gonna do that style I'd go with the Steeda one.

    I think with the Saleen rear bumper the s351 looks better. It's got a more in your face look which goes well with the saleen kit.

    Exactly. That's the only reason why.

    The S281 looks great on all 94-98s, that's why I bought it for mine. Looks even better with the Saleen bumper and 96-98 tails.. But.. Seeing that pic of the S351 with the saleen bumper, damn it looks good. If i had your setup I'd go with the S351. In the end you gotta be happy, so pick what you like better.

    Yea coupe, s281 hands down, but when the tops down on a vert, you cant even tell the s281's on. I feel the s351 looks more aggressive.

    Totally agree with you. S281s look good on verts, but for your setup, you need the more aggressive wing. It just makes the car look more race orientated, and definitely gives it a boost in the aggressive looks department.

    Steeda spoiler is like a slimmed down version of the S351, the S351 just looks bloated to me.

    Not to many people run the S351 wing (and that in itself scores a couple points). Unlike the S281 which is everywhere. But it looks great too.
    I also like the Steeda race wing but $300 for the wing+ another $90 for the winglets....ouch.
    It's your car man do what you want. If someone else doesn't like it, so be it.

    you sure it doesn't come with the winglets? I've never heard you have to buy them separate.

    CJ's and MU doesn't mention the winglets either way but at one time they DID NOT come with the wing. They might now but the wing didn't jump $100 to cover them if they do.

    yeah i knew you could buy them separately but that doesn't mean they don't come with it. Like i said I've never heard they didn't come with the spoiler.

    I'm a s351 junky and cast my vote for it. The s281 is a very good looking choice also but (IMO) screams boulevard cruiser whereas the s351 says RAWR
