Default STI roof spoiler and rear lip

I was thinking today about putting on the STI limited rear lip and roof spoiler on my wrx. I thought I could trade my trunk for a wingless and buy the lip, or if im lucky enough trade w/ a limited trunk. Then I could buy the rear roof spoiler the STI's have. Whats the best way to go around doing this? Anyone have any pics of a similar car or can someone photochop a quick one?

EDIT I found the rear wing vane diffuser for sale on suby genuine parts but its 350, anyone know of a cheaper place. I know I could buy the sides seperate and the wing seperate, I just want the cheapest route.

Oh, I know, but I saw the roof vane diffuser, whatever on a rex w/ no wing and it looked sick, but then I thought what about adding the rear lip...

The rear roof vane directs air flow towards the top plane of the dual plane STI spoiler. You will notice that on all versions without the dual wing... Limited (A-Line in japan), RA, RA-R there is no roof vane spoiler.

STi Limited colors are different from WRX and STi. If you're planning on getting the Limited trunk/trunk spoiler lip you will have to repaint to match.

the roof vane is mean to go with the larger sti wing
if you're going for looks only and not performance ... go for it


but know that at high speeds (track day?) the car will handle like poo

you really think it will effect the handling that much?

I'm talking about the sti roof spoiler, not the vortex(fin thing)

There's a thread somewhere on aerodynamics that shows how superior the roof vane + the STI spoiler are to the Evo's spoiler in terms of downforce. In fact, it provides so much downforce in the rear it actually adds to the lifting front a tad (which is why I want a front lip spoiler).

don't you need to drill holes that don't exist into the frame of the car for the diffuser woulden't that be kinda tricky just my 2 cents
