Default M3 Style Spoiler on the 2011 wrx sedan $49 shipped!

I've gotten a few Pm's about it so i thought i should make a thread. i picked up my car w/out the factory spoiler intentionally. I eventually want the Sti Ts spoiler, but thought id go w/ this cheap option for now. The paint matches very well, blue metal flake and everything
it also shipped VERY fast, had it just a few days!

it's from this ebay seller:

http://shop.ebay.com/paintedspoilers...=1&_from=&_ipg=

it's your responsibility to provide the car manufacturer, paint code, and length.

Hmmm...pretty nice looking! Too bad I've got the standard spoiler on my Limited. Might have to see about a trunk swap with someone who has a SWP base...

BTW, how is it attached? Double Sided Tape I'm guessing?

Not bad, but I would like to see one slanted more towards the rear instead of sticking up straight.

I like the little extra angle to it. I assume you got it off Ebay, and if so, how did you find that style rather than the more vertical style?

Im honestly not sure if its any different. Its all based on the angle that you look at it from. I agree that i was going to be a little disappointed if it was just a 90* angle. Pleasantly surprised when i opened the package.

Just Googled the sti ts spoiler and that is exactly what I am looking for. But for 49 shipped that lip spoiler is pretty good.

Yeah just saw that. Too much for me. I'm hoping a company in the states will make a replica. A cf one from dg motorsports would be really cool.

Not to hijack this thread but as a first time Subaru owner with my 2011 WRX, I do have a question. I also Googled the STI TS to see what the spoiler was about. The C&D article that I came across made mention of it having the same 2.0L Turbo that the regular J-Spec STI's have. Is that a typo? The J-Spec's use 2.0L instead of 2.5L yet they seem to make the same horsepower? Just curious if someone can fill me in.
Apparently if you get the STI TS in automatic (WHY?!?) you get a "downgraded" 2.5L! Interesting...

EDIT: By the way, I should add that while the TS spoiler does look really good, it being $600 is freakin crazy!! Technically, it should be just as easy to make and attach as the $49 ebay spoiler that this thread is about!

Yes, the JDM STi gets a 2.0L known as the EJ207. It's a hell of a motor. It's factory twin scroll and strong as hell. I've seen them take a boatload more abuse than any EJ255/EJ257 in a USDM WRX/STi. The heads are also designed much better.

I think the main reason we don't get them in the states is two fold. 1) The US loves torque and displacement and 2) it's hard to make the 2.0L meet the US's strick pollution standards and still have the power output necessary to sell an STi.

I'm curious what the Ebay spoiler would look like mounted on the back of the trunk lid rather than on top of the trunk lid. In other words, mount it like the TS spoiler.

If you need it painted, make sure you apply the lip to the trunk and then have it painted while it's on the car. I bought one of those for my old car, had it painted and then it got all wrinkled from the flex (soft rubber) and then applied it to my trunk. I hated it

So how did you actually go about installing the spoiler so that it came out looking even and lined up nicely on the trunk lid? As I said above, I haven't gotten around to installing mine, but one thing that always concerned me was that I would screw up the positioning.

I've asked once before (many moons ago) and never got any responses. For those of you that have installed these, how did you actually do it?

I'm looking for tips on getting it to cleanly follow the edge of the trunk lid, keeping it centered, did you peel off all the cover on the adhesive at once, or did you do it gradually as you installed the spoiler, etc etc.

Thanks!

When I installed mine I had another person help me out. I first washed the car, and then went a step further and cleaned the surface with rubbing alcohol just in case. Then I lined the spoiler up with the red lining still on and just eyeballed how much space should be left on each side to look even.

Then I laid down the spoiler slowly, guiding it with my thumb on the back of the trunk (see in the pics above how it has a little lip, my thumb was under that and flat against the back of the trunk). As i was laying down the spoiler, I had someone else pull back the red lining while holding it up so it wouldn't accidentally stick to the truck.

The spoiler itself is really flexible, so it can curve anyway you want it. I am very satisfied with how the spacing and position turned out, especially by just eyeballing it. Some may measure, but I didn't.

Hope this helps for anyone looking to install one! I am very happy with the purchase, and for $49 painted AND shipped, you can't beat it! Thanks again to the original post!
