    I think they look cool but I heard they limit how far you can open you hatch

    Aside from Perrin, what are the other strong brands when it comes to rear wing spoilers? Thanks!

    I actually did some research on this today. The Perrin raised wing does limit how far you can open your hatch, but comes with adjustable cables... Still, seems like that might get annoying making sure the cables are tucked away each time and not having full access, etc.

    There are two other ones that I have found that are specific to the WRX Hatch.

    Knock off Prodrive wings on ebay. They mimic what the Subaru Rally Team runs. (The actual Prodrives are CRAZY Expensive).

    The other wing (which I personally like) is the Blacktop Aero. Seems like it is from Japan or something and I can not actually find a OEM website for it. Seems like it is available in different places online though if you do some searching.

    Someone posted something about if you put the risers (expensive spacers) on the center mounts you should be able to open the hatch all the way.

    Has anyone looked into a DIY wing riser kit? I can't find anything anywhere about it. I would love to do it but def don't want to shell out that kind of dough to Perrin. It's just some spacers and some cables!!
