    Yup. I wouldn't think about doing this if I didn't have a spoiler.

    Do you people really trust the idiots behind you that much? Even with my STi wing I'm going to keep my 3rd brake light so I can do everything I can to get their attention.

    I guess that means all the yellow cars are doomed. All yellow WRX's came from the factory with a wing, and no third brake light on the deck.

    the stock wing has a brake light on it. if you have both a 3rd brake light and a spoiler, that means the spoiler was installed by the dealer. you shouldnt have a 3rd brake light if your car was ordered with a wing from the factory.

    The only cars that had the spoiler from the factory were yellow ones.

    the only color that came with a spoiler standard were the yellow ones, cause it was supposed to be the "sporty" color. there are plenty of wrx's that came with a spoiler from the factory, mine being one of them. hence the lack of a 3rd brake light. which brings me back to my point; if you have a spoiler AND a 3rd brake light, then your spoiler was installed by the dealer.

    i thought all options were installed by the dealer anyways. At least that's what it seems to be around here. The cars roll off the line as the same then the dealer adds this here or there. I could be wrong though.

    the way i understand it, options are installed at the port once the cars arrive to the states. so if you order a car with specific options, most will be installed before it gets to the dealer.

    could be but i just can't imagine a bunch of subby techs bolting on spoilers and arm rest extensions and short shifters at the shipping yard.
