    I see there are two different options, either a big wing, or a small/no wing trunk lid. I would assume the difference is the strength of the spring, a stronger spring to open a heavier lid, but, you know what they say about assumptions. Any other differences?

    This is amazing and a great idea! Now if someone can just create a solution to close the lid without putting finger prints and small scratches on the piano black trim...

    I'd also like to know if there's a weight range for the wing option, so we'd know if we're going to get proper operation. This is from the install PDF (underline by me):

    NOTE: Closing the decklid will require slightly more force. Varying temperatures and different wing and spoiler packages may alter the desired results.

    I didn't weigh my BMC wing, but I just looked at the original shipping info, and it was 9.8 lbs, so a large box, some packaging, maybe 2 lbs? So probably about a 7-8-ish pound wing[?]

    There's a couple of options, you can close the trunk by pulling down on the corner of the trunk itself (vs. the rear trim panel). Also, some folks - and I am going to do this too, just haven't gotten around to it yet - add a nylon pull strap inside, mounted to one of the holes used by the plastic push pins (that holds the liner).

    I hear you though, my '19 car was a mint pre-owned with 4K miles, but the trunk panel looked like it came off a 50K mile '15 (I replaced it with a Ford Perf blank panel :) )

    So maybe some weight allowance for proper operation? Also, since it's a stronger strut, does that mean you really have to lean into it? Or would one of the pull down type solutions still work?

    Right now, my trunk is super easy to close with the extra weight - I just have to pull it about a foot and it drops the rest of the way. I'd hate to make opening much better, but at the cost of having to sit on the trunk to get it closed ... :giggle:

    I'd love to try these, but also don't want to spend $70 for something that won't work for me, so is there a money back guarantee?

    Correct, that is the only difference. If you have a wing, order the one for the wing.

    When you use the trunk release button on the car will it open the same way? Or only when using the fob?

    Yeah, it should work the same way regardless if you open it with the key fob, interior button or bumper button as it replaces the struts that open the trunk.

    Following.

    interested in the force required to close it.

    I have gt350 spoiler on my 17 eb, I have another couple pounds though from dynamat on the deck lid.

    Man some of you guys really overthink things. And make things overly complex.

    Looks like a solid product. I'll probably add one at some point.

    THANK YOU!
    Ever since I got my wing from cervinis the trunk barely opens when I push the button. Once I even had it fall on me. Already ordered.

    Yeah, open is open, in fact, it should work the same way with the interior trunk release button.



    Well, I think some of us are just trying to confirm it will work as designed with our setup. I mean, wouldn't it stink to order, install, open the trunk and *click* it doesn't spring open? Then you've got to reverse the install, send them back, Steeda has to deal with restocking an item that's technically used, etc.


    Any idea about the weight of your wing? I almost pulled the trigger too, but wanted some feedback on how hard it is to close. I want to add a pull strap to close the trunk, avoid scratches on the black panel (just replaced it).

    Hell, I may just order too ...

    We have an interior trunk release button?

    Well, I learned something new today. Cool.
