    Wing suggestions

    I've been looking for a 2011 and up STi wing for my 08 WRX sedan just because I like the look but it's so expensive and too much trouble if I don't get the trunk. So then I found this pic and I thought it looked nice so then I was like hey maybe I can find a nice aftermarket that looks just as good or better and if it covers the trunk holes...even better. So does anyone know of any good looking wings for it? Cause I'm not a fan of 4 door cars with short wings.

    Link works for me. I personally do not like the sti spoiler or any variation of it.

    Instead of purchasing one, look into swapping trunks/trunk springs.

    I don't like it to be honest with you...the GD wing doesn't flow with the body lines of the 3rd Gens IMO.

    Well I don't like how it looks right now really. I have the stock WRX stubby little wing and it looks weird to me. I've always thought 4 door cars look better with a taller wing

    I personally think the 3rd gen sedans look best with no wing or with a Limited style lip spoiler. In this case, less is more.

    Re: Wing suggestions

    I have an STI wing on my WRX, and personally it takes a lot of vision away. When it's dark out, it blocks the cars behind me from blinding me perfectly, but that's what I have my rear view mirror dimmer for lol. So keep in mind you'll loose a bit of sight. I'd almost want to go wingless, but like you said the STI wing really makes the car look mean and great.

    I too prefer the wingless look. Looks great & the car is a lot more inconspicuous that way.

    Yeah I'm aware it takes vision away but I think I'll be fine. And man if so many people like the wingless look, why can't I find someone to trade with?
