Don't want to put a downer on things and a i maybe wrong...maybe your not bothered n just want it to look cool...but the aerodynamics of a beetle ain't that great to begin with...I think that will have the same affect as a air break..

Looks like a fun project!! Looking forward to your progress. Are you planning on keeping the fin or.....?

Does it run?

40 bucks is a killer price for anything! Wish I could find them for that price!

If that wing was offered to me for one dollar with the obligation to mount it on my beetle, I'd walk away.
But if you like it, go for it.

Not the wing, dude. The car! The wing is not my style, but I would take it with a car for 40 bucks!
