Did you remove the grill to plastidip the wings? Or is it possible to remove the wings themselves while leaving the grill in place? Or did you just paint the wings in place on the car?

I took them off the grill since I was installing the STI lip on the bumper but I have read on here that people with small enough hands were able to take off the grill wings with the bumper still on. It's just two small Phillips screws and two tabs holding each wing in place on the grill.

This is where I got my lip for $435 plus shipping.

Heuberger Subaru sells their accessories 25% off.

There are ebay replicas for cheaper, but you also deal with quality issues. Its a tradeoff. IMO anything over $100 is a lot considering its going to get beat up.



Ive already scraped my bumper on more then one occasion (at stock height!) so I guess ill pass on the lip. But it does look good.

Theyre not flexible like rallyarmor, but they are thicker. Also IMO the hardware seems undersized/not too robust but that's an easy fix. Install is a breeze.
2 strikes in my book! i have scrapped my rally armors probably 7 or 8 times, it sounds horrible, but they haven't damaged anything in the process. i think non flexible flaps would either break or rip off the mounting points. no thanks!

My flapatax scrapped all the time and ripped off the bottom mounting point on the rear passenger side so just took them off and no more scrapping!

And how many F-bombs will you throw out there when you hit your first curb or road obstruction after installing that thing?

i buy my parts from http://heubergersubaruparts.com/

all their accessories is 25% off retail.

i compared my checkout list with subaru genuine parts and with heuberger subaru and i saved over 150 bucks with heuberger.

funny considering Subaru genuine parts is literally 5 minutes from my house. sales tax killed it and i couldnt pick up the parts "in warehouse"
