It's your car do what you want, part of me wants the STI spolier for the function part of it but I also like the sleak sleeper look. I'm thinking of doing a complete STI with the front difusser lip on the front of my car come spring, it looks more aggresive. Just a little info I read that the 06 STI spolier is actually a little bigger than the 04-05, if any one cares

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

Sure, I will give you 5 dollars in scrap for your wrx. Just give me the keys, title, and bill of sale. Cool thanks.

I don't like the idea of putting STi parts on a WRX(unless they are beneficial i.e. brakes, trans, block, susp). Its not a STi so I don't see the point in trying to make it look like one. My goal is just the opposite of yours. My plans are for a FMIC, RS hood and then wingless trunk and debadged so people think its a RS and say "ah, you should have gotten a WRX".

ahah for sure.
a guy i met has an sti that runs 11's and he has a watercooled intercooler, so he has no obvious turbo parts. debadged, and a 2.5rs hood so it looks like a 2.5rs with nice brakes and wheels and an sti interior with an exhaust.. its funny.. he smokes a lot of bikes

keep it in the dirt.

As posted above, I put the STI wing on my TR just because i love the look, looks more aggressive to me, and i absolutely hate the WRX spoiler. I thought about keeping it spoilerless, but it just didn't look right with my snowboard rack... I feel the wing balances everything out...

Another thing is that I don't want to be called a poser, and i don't think i am. Not anywhere does my car say "STI" on it, (although the dealership did mess up when the put on the wrong spoiler on my car, so I made them take off the trunk off of a STI that was being PDI'd and put it on mine... they left on the STI badge, but i took it off).

Anyway... its personal preference... i love it!

I took it off because I got sick of people mistaking my car for an STi. It was in the rearview mirror right in the line of view w/ cars behind me. It was heavy and I could tell the difference. I paid $450 shipped to me and painted originally and it is sold already unfortunately. I would stay away from the STi wing, but thats just my .02

Provides more performance than an STI wing, should be lighter, more rear visibility, and the average Joe wont mistake you for an STI or a S204, as 90+ percent of the population will never see one, performance community might give ya a hard time tho. Maybe I'm totally off my rocker tho lol
