Cosidering that the CF isnt really lighter than the stock components if you want the look I would go withthe trunk. Im personally not much for wings or spoilers, but its a personal preference.

personally man its up to you and what stly your looking for. i went with the sti wing on my silver wrx just cause i love hoe it looks. it makes the car look more agressive and gives it a wider looking stance IMO. But i agree with hi-power. your car is going to be black. you aint going to notice the carbon fiber too much and its not going to reduce the weight that much either. But this is not our call. I personally love my win. reguardless the little bit more reduced visibility in the back but why you need to look back there. just look at whats in front of you is all that matters.

Its all personal preference. You said that car isn't going to go to alot of shows, but that doesn't mean you dont want it to look nice. On my car, I dont plan on racing it to much. And i dont plan on showing the car. But i want looks more than performance. Not the widebody or any body kit for that matter, but a nice look. If i had a black WRX i would go with the STi wing, a front lip, black out the side markers, some type of black rims (maybe a polished lip ) and some black morrettes. thats just me.

i got 17's with eibach prokit and its awesome on pavement. (never been off road with it) except for doing donuts in the snow. As for the trunk or wing, id go for the trunk. no wing is much more subtle, sleeker, better.
