Is the 08 WRX spoiler the same as the 02-07? Does it use the same bolt layout? If so then Im sure it would work, if not, I doubt it.

X1,000,000,000 !!!!!! I have seen a yellow 02 rex with black wing risers and it looks totally ridiculous!!! Don't do it!

PS: is your 08 a wagon or sedan? I don't think you can use wing risers on the wagon, that would be even more ridiculous.

wing risers look pretty stupid he you ask me. If you have an 07 and older and you do that, might as well get the sti spoiler. It actually looks good unlike you raising the wrx spoiler. It already looks good the way it is.

Ok, as always I will stick my neck out there. If painted, I think the wing risers look good on the car. But my personal preference is no spoiler.

Here's an idea... just came to me: instead of putting risers on the stock WRX wing to raise it up, how about shaving the supports off so the top part of the wing sits flush on the trunk lid so it looks like a touring wing? I bet that might look cool. Anybody feel like photoshopping it?
