Default Help!!! Carbon creations sti wing on wrx ptoblems

I just bought a carbon fiber sti replica wing from carbon creations and I'm not sure if they sent the right one.
When I did a test fit, 1. The bolts supplied with it did not reach the existing 4 holes from my Wrx wing, and 2. They didn't reach because the base of the sti wing was has a slight curve up on each side but it's not enough to match the curve of my trunk, and when I place it there is an 1/8th to a 1/4" gap from the middle of the trunk to the base of the wing!!!
No instructions were included(as noted that would be) and I know I will have to drill 4 more holes in the trunk lid to have it bolt down.

Oh and also there aren't studs molded into the new wing, there are threads that bolts thread into and I'm kind of afraid that those threads might pull out and poof there goes my $500 carbon fiber wing :-/ any and all help will be greatly appreciated!!!

If it doesn't fit it sounds like you should be sending it back or atleast notifying the seller...?

Do NOT buy any CF wings from Carbon Creations. I had a CF wing for an 08 Mazdaspeed 3 , it did not fit any of the holes. Can't even drill new ones , just terrible

The bolt points for an STI wing are different from the WRX wing so unless it is stated that it will fit your existing holes, your problem is not the company, it is the fact that you have a trunk that had a WRX wing. Your best bet is to return the wing and start looking to trade with an STI owner for his/her wing. Or you can fill the WRX holes and drill new ones for the STI wing.

Yes I figured it out, I didn't have to drill any more holes, I just used the stock 4 from my Wrx wing, which holds it just fine!!! You will def need longer bolts though. But it holds just fine. I am having problems getting the end caps for the bottom of the wing edges though.

I am aware of the wing bolt pattern differences, however the cc cf wing is made to bolt up to the Wrx 4 bolt pattern where as the sti bolt pattern has 11 or 12 bolts.

It's actually 17.
The WRX has 7 bolts, and the STi wing will bolt up to all (one being the third brake light wire) except two, one on either side.

Go to photobucket.com and make an account, or tinypic.com, then just get the direct link to the photo with [IMG] [/IMG] directly around the link (no spaces anywhere.)

I have a Wrx and I only have 4 bolts for the standard wing, ( 2 bolts for one side of the raised wing and 2 for the other) and it is the same wing all the way up to 07, unless you are talking about newer ones, which I don't know those specifics you sir have a weird Wrx trunk lid.

I worded that wrong. It's seven holes. Four bolts, two clips, and one brake light wire.

I just bought the same spoiler and am having the same issues.. Do you still have the car? Or did the wing hold up fine with just the 4 bolts?
