I'd still go OEM. I have yet to find a company that does a better job than Subaru when it comes to making their own exterior pieces.

Looks like a decent product for a very nice price. I personally like the idea of putting "knock-off" products on my car, but that decision is up to you, but you could save some money by buying that peice.

Personally, I never really understood why exterior pieces cost so damn much. I mean, ok, it costs a lot to make the first mold and most of the pieces are sold for a certain price to help cover the cost of the materials and the design of that original mold. But seriously, these things are usually just made of plastic or some sort of resin anyways - I'm talking about things like spoilers or front lips... sorry. I'll get off my soapbox now.

Yes thanks to MOE!


Can anyone send me Directions or a walkthrough on how to install the STI wing? Will I have to use current holes and then drill more?

Or fill current holes paint over them and install new wing with new holes

I'm only saying that because I work in a body shop and trust me you know when your useing after market parts compared to factory, the fit and finish is a big difference. Aftermarket parts never fit properly or like a factory piece will.
Just letting you know, you can do what ever you want

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)
