Need Opinions - Vents or No Vents in slant fenders?

Okay, here's the issue:

The fenders I received from A.I.R. had no vents cut in them, instead they came plain or "smooth". This is how they're sold, as per the factory style - so they didn't screw up or anything.

So which is better in your opinion? Be nasty or nice I don't care just tell me what you guys think I should go with. Remember the car is going to be black, I love vents and louvers etc, but after staring at different pics for an eternity I'm not thinking clearly.

The look I want is fast, edgy, mean, provocative and classic. The rest of the body has 1975 15" rear quarter flares, DP tail & a 935 bumper.

Option A


Option B

To those that voted No Vents, what are your reasons?

Does Option B really include a right drive and reverse license plate
Only question would be from a functional perspective, will air get trapped under the fender and make the front end get really light at high speed? That may make the car no fun to drive. But, it sure does look pretty cool in the picture you posted. And, you won't have to worry about getting your fingers broken in the louvers when you are washing and waxing the car.

Oh, Oh.....louvers are around 1 cm wide on my factory fenders...So....you might have very, very small fingers......

Not on the original Werks cars. I had mine sitting next to a US slope and the US version had smaller louvers. So it is true that you would have to have small fingers on the US version but the original Euro / Werks version there is plenty of room for owwies.

Well the other thing is that the 935 racer had cut fenders or vents not louvers a la the street cars. I have euro steel slant fenders and the louvers are large, but now I'm wondering on whether to cut the vents or have them cut louvers (cut then bend fiberglass downward and resin in place).
