The Sti looks a little sill with no wing and the huge scoop inho. Once you go FMIC and get a drop in replacement for the scoop like the evo it looks damn slick. Myabe a wrx spoiler would look ok with the STi scoop but until I get a FMIC and a green Im gonna stick with the wing.

Something tells me Subaru wants the car to be visible from a distance. Without the wing, they lose their advertising value of having a blatantly obvious halo car running around in public. I don't know their books, but it wouldn't surprise me if this car was cheaper due to the wing, strictly from a value to Subaru of advertising point of view.

So would you still want it without the wing if it made the price jump by $1000-$5000?

other wing options?

My wife hates the wing and won't let me buy an STI (for that reason mostly). And I also think the car would look bad and unbalanced without a spoiler of some kind. Can I put another spoiler into the holes of the STI? Would the regular WRX wing cover up the holes? Any other more subtle wings you could recommend?

Thanks

It is a 10 minute swap with a WRX. I did mine a few weeks ago and I like it much better. I do have the WRX trunk with spoiler. Spoilerless with the scoop looks too strange for me.

I have pictures on my website...the link is in my signature.

I hate my wing. blocks the rear view. makes the rear view mirror almost useless. Want to find out where my old 04 rex was sold so I can ask the guy for a trunk swap. The low wing was way way better!!! But may make my car look plain.:confused1

Every dealer I've spoken to has said that they would be more than happy to swap a WRX trunk/wing combo for the STi trunk/wing at the purchasers request. Makes sense, as the STi wing is a bit more expensive.

I like the recognition of the STi wing, and then again, I hate the recognition of the rear wing. At 42 years old, I guess it's due to my age more than anything. I'm pretty sure the eventually, after a FMIC install, I'll be going all smooth...both hood and trunk. Maybe even debaged. That is, if I keep it long enough. The skyline is coming up soon, and that will be hard to ignore.

I want to go smooth too. Even go so far as to apply 2.5RS badging. With all of the WRX being stolen in the area, especially in NJ, I want do what I can to hold on to her.

i think STI look good with the wing. however i think the wing is way too big. I like EVO8 with CF much better than STI wing.
i think it will look good on STI too
