Trunk spoiler options

So, I have decided that I would like to get rid of my spoiler and go without one or with something different (Not the Sti spoiler). My questions are…
1.Has anyone stumbled upon an aftermarket spoiler for an 05? I have googled and have not had any luck.
Not sure how exactly to go spoiler-less but looking for ideas. Do they make the 05 2.5 without a spoiler?
ANY ideas are welcome.

I'm a big fan of the "Mines" spoiler for the 02-07 Imprezas. You can also get them in carbon fiber or imitation plastic. Usually they just stick on with double sided tape, but you can also get them molded on for a super clean look - which would probably be the way to go if you have to fill in the holes from your stock spoiler. I've even seen one or two with third brake lights molded into them for people who want to remain legal without putting a third brake light in the back glass. If I had the money, that's probably what I'd do.

04-07 trunks will fit on your car. Look around to see if you can find a spoilerless one. I got my from the dealership like that and I love the look.

Here are a few options:


06-07 STi Limited


STi S202


STi S203


STi S204


Prodrive


Prodrive


Do-Luck, the whole trunk... it's expensive...


Mine's


Mine's (molded)

I personally prefer either the STi Limited or wingless...

Thanks for the replies!! and the awesome pics!
I could try and find a wingless trunk but my car is WRB and I am not sure if I want to buy a trunk and then repaint it. Any websites you know off the top of your head? I can google it but this is easier.

You can always offer to swap your trunk & spoiler for a WRBlue wingless trunk to someone in your area...

Although I would rather repaint a virgin wingless trunk instead of filling wholes and painting my drilled trunk lid...

IFuapiti - dont want to fill holes and repaint. I am assuming that over time I would have trouble with the holes leaking b/c of all the vibrations plus the opening and closing. Did they make a WRB wingless trunk?

Hey Fuapiti. Do you have anymore pictures of your trunk? I've been wanting to get the 07 Limited spoiler, but I've never really seen it on a blue WRX.

I doubt that would happen, unless you take your car to a really cheap shop like Maaco or something...

I'm not sure but I would think that they could weld the holes shut and then grind, fill, sand, prime, paint and clear it... I guess you'll have to ask...

I still have my OEM WRX POS attached to the back of my car... I've seen it on though, and it does look great!

This might give you an idea...

Oh my bad. I thought you said you had the STi limited spoiler.
