    Wing Riser for the Hatch WRX/STI

    Wing Riser Kit

    Anyone have experience with doing this? Such as, pros or cons?
    I think it does give the rear of the hatch WRX/STI a more aggressive look.

    Thanks, Brandi

    I think it limits how much your hatch opens

    It does limit the opening. Comes with cables to prevent you with breaking the wing off.

    But it does look pretty cool

    I have installed this on my car. It's not very hard to do. Just take your time and pay attention to everything you are doing so you don't damage the wing. I like the looks of it but now putting anything in the hatch is a pain.

    Thanks all. Never thought about it limiting the hatch. Not sure I want to limit the hatch like that. Can one of you post a picture of your hatch while open?
    Thanks again,

    Love the look and was gonna purchase this, but after watching the install video, I'd rather be able to open the hatch.

    Thanks all. Never even thought of the restrictions it would cause opeing the hatch. I'll be passing on this as I'm not willing to restrict my hatch opening (the reason I bought a hatch was to utilize it). LOL
    Thanks again,

    I opened my hatch and the clearance looks slim, but I'm wondering if a couple washers would raise it a tiny bit n give u the raised look but let you open the hatch
