    Hey guys new here

    Hey guys, me and father have decided to go splits on a 08 wrx, Im just curious to what performance/ style options we have with this car, we want to boost horsepower on it and also make it abit more unique so we dont match any other wrx's around. Any good sites for aftermarket? oh and he really wants to get an 05' style wing, (the high ones) cause he like's the look of them, any help there? thanks!

    Welcome to the club! There are a bunch of vendors on the site that can help you with all of your wrx needs. Check out the vendor forum. The wing you're talking about is the STi wing, not the 05 wing. I'm not sure if it will fit on the 08s though. Enjoy the site!

    Have you guys bought the car yet? If not, wait for the 09's to come out. More horsepower and more torque.
    The only STi wing that will fit on the 08's is the one off the 08 STi and that will only fit on the 08 WRX hatch so if you are getting the sedan it won't fit.
    Plus the 05-07 Sti wings (the high ones your dad likes) won't fit on the 08's... they don't have the space on top of the trunk to accomodate the space required. If by some chance and major modification you can make it fit, the wing would just look just flat out sloppy and ricey.

    Oh yeah, Welcome to the site!

    Hey, uh no we havent gotten it just yet, But we're probably going to get it either today or tommorow. And I dont think we'll be able to wait till 09' because my dad just sold his truck and is driving my beater cavalier around. So we need to get something asap. We're still undecided about witch model to get (hatch or sedan), I guess we'll see when we get to the dealership!

    Hey guys, well I pretty much convinced my dad to wait it out untill september and get an 09'! 265hp.. mmmhmm I think we'll be going with either blue or white sedan. We still would like to extract 300hp out of it when we get it.
