Default Stock vrs Carbon Fiber Trunk lbs

Just in case anyone wanted to know...
I could not find this info online so I took my car apart and got some actual weights.

Stock 05 STI trunk: 22.5lbs (not including hardware and badges)
Stock 05 STI wing: 19lbs
Perrin wing support: 1lb
Seibon Carbon Fiber Trunk: 13lbs

Also heard that a Dry Carbon Trunk is estimated at 5lbs

I ordered the APR GTC-300 wing....I will update the post with its weight when it arrives in 2 days

He got the GTC-300 and put it on. I am not sure if he got a weight of that as well, but it is light. The whole setup looks great.

Oops, I forget I made this thread.

APR GTC-300 wing with mounts came in at 11.5lbs

So by replacing the stock trunk and wing with some "lower end" carbon fiber, I saved a quick 18lbs from the rear end...and gained more wing functionality. Obviously dry carbon would have saved a lot more...but more than doubled in price.
