To start, I'm new to the forum, and recently bought my 2011 WRX baby :-D
I noticed that the rear accent trim (the ugly silver bar above the rear license plate) needs to go. Removing it doesn't seem to be an option, but I have seen a good amount of overlays for this job. Most of these cost about 100 bucks for the carbon fiber ones, however I stumbled upon this solution for 15 bucks 2008-2013 WRX STI Rear Trunk Trim Chrome Delete ( Carbon & Color Matched ) - Premium Auto Styling
Pretty sure it's just a vinyl wrap, but wondered if anybody has done this before / has horror stories about doing so. Does it last long? I read about one person getting "swirl marks" in his after washing it. I guess the same question goes for taillight vinyl jobs too, same material/idea.
Also, if anybody has a red WRX/STI with a black delete over this, I am very curious what this would look like. Im hoping to smoke out my reverse lights and black delete this trim.
