Default For those looking for Functional Body Kits:

I was reading the STi Japan site the other night and read that their front lip spoiler drops the WRX's .33 drag coefficient (YES it is .33... I have researched it enough) to 0.327. Now add the STi Wing and it enhances the effects. To quote STi, "In addition, it actualizes the optimum aerodynamic effect the front lip spoiler by installing simultaneously." So if you are actually looking for truely functional parts, these are them my friends.

They apparently did wind tunnel testing for their race prepped WRX STi. The body kit is the end result.

Yeah, you're very right, I completely forgot about that. the prova kit and the STi bits are prolly the only ones I would purchase as of now.

Thank you for helping me finally decide which front spoiler (STI) to go with. I wonder if I can leave it flat black to match the black OEM sideskirts.

BTW, very nice car sherifx.

well it would, i would assume, if the replicas were made in exacting detail. meaning there would be almost no way to tell the difference from both a design and engineering standpoint, otherwise i would say no, "replicas need not apply"
