    My old 04 san remo WRX had no wing. My 04 jbp STI comes with it and I wish it didn't. I would much prefer the subtle STI limited wing. Going completely wingless might look bizzare because the 04's had the largest hood scoops. TeflonJones was requesting pics of the 04 STI wingless or with limited wing and I'm still waiting for someone to post a good pic.

    I thought the STi wing served a pretty big purpose on the car. I didn't know that the STi Limited didn't have one. So basically Subaru put a park bench on the car for no real reason other then style?

    Ya, pretty much on there to look like a WRC car.
    I believe it has about 60 pounds of downforce at 100mph.
    Maybe to an extent it does something, but basically is just extra weight and a rally style look.

    Now, the actual WRC wing is very important. It keep the car from front flipping when it's airborne.
    so get one of those!

    From what I've heard a trunk swap isn't that difficult at all. Like mykedude said just make sure you swap the locks and the springs.
