    Wing on 2013 WRX Sedan

    Hello, all. I have a 2013 SWP WRX sedan that's base and, thus, wingless, as you can see in the pic. Some people have been telling me to keep it wingless but I, personally, think it looks a bit unproportional without the wing. I was originally just thinking of getting the regular WRX wing but the STi wing is the same price, if not a bit cheaper. I'm leaning towards the STi wing because I think it looks great on SWP STi sedans. But how will it look on a 2013 SWP WRX? What do you guys think? Pics, if available, would be great because I can't really find any. Also, is it totally not cool to put an STi wing on a WRX? Anyways, my concerns on the STi wing are that it may be too flashy, that it may affect resale value, that it may not look as good as I'd think it to be, that it may look too tool-esque (if you know what I mean), and that it may be more expensive than I think because it'll have to be painted, but I could be wrong.

    So some advice would be great


    Thanks

    UPDATE: I trunk swapped for a regular wrx deck lid. Pics are further down.

    I like the look of the deck spoiler. It's your call. Even if you decide to go with the sti wing who cares. There are a lot of people that part sti parts on there wrx. Are they posing as well??

    How much you think labor would be for installing a wing? I'll probably go with a deck lid.

    I just ordered my WRX sedan SWP and im putting the mock Sti TS lip on it. I see some guys throwing on M3 lips as well. The M3 lip tapes on top of the trunk while the real and mock Sti TS lip mounts off the trunk. Both look nice so it comes down to preference.

    Deck spoiler would be nice. He asked for opinions right?
    I think the STI wing would be posing which there is nothing wrong with that if that's what you like to do. My opinion is I don't like it, so I don't recommend it. Same thing with other cars like a camaro posing as an SS or a mustang posing as a GT. I don't like it when people do that either. Just sayin bruh.

    I don't think you would be a poser if you got a STi spoiler as long as you don't put on STi badges.

    But if you add a wing to your trunk it will be heavier so it may slam shut or not open as easy...

    nice swap! the trunk looks clean with just the wrx badge left on it.
    is the vortex from the dealer or did you install it yourself?!

    I think all 2013's come standard from the factory with them.

    ^ Nope, the base is still wingless. I have a 13 base and was thinking about putting the wing on it. but thinking of doing the " M3 Style" Spoiler.

    We're talking about the vortex generator, not the wing.
