wing help!!!

i have a 02 wrx and it has the stock wing on it, i really want to put a sti type wing on it but i dont know if it will work??? i was told that if i want to do this then i will have to buy a whole sti trunk lid, is this true, or can i just buy the wing itself. does anyone know if they make a wing that bolts on with the same factory holes in the trunk lid that looks like the sti ???

When I tried buying an aftermarket sti wing, I had holes exposed and had to drill for new ones...
That being said, that was an Ebay POS....so than I just bought an 07 trunk and wing off a guy as a whole for just over 200 bucks.....Its just cheaper and less headache to do a trunk swap or purchase the whole setup off somebody..IMO.....GL

........................................CHEERS!!!

Be mindful that if you put a bigger/heavier wing like that of the STI on your car, you will also need to replace the trunk struts to deal with the added stress/weight. I would go over to NASIOC and see about trading for one.

If you are not familiar with their site, do a search for your local area on there.
Each region has there own trunk and wing swap thread
You should even be able to get it in your color... As long as your car isn't a blaze yellow or Sedona red.
