Hey, here is my 2011 SWP WRX Limited...the RVS is from HT Autos and I got it painted and installed at a body shop. No template, no instructions, no second opinion (I didn't have the opportunity to inspect an installed RVS on another Suby)...my only form of reference came from the 2 pics I found on the internet of the 2011 SWP STI w/RVS.

Also, I asked to have the caps/side covers painted black, but I think they got a little carried away with the SWP. Shop owner said I can bring the caps back whenever and he will paint them for me...I'll eventually post a write-up with pics of the install because I watched closely and took pics for the Nasioc community as others have helped me with installs thus far.

And YES, I realized this serves no functional purpose without the STI wing, but I am still looking for a trunk swap and think it still looks good regardless...

Thanks for posting this up. I've been wondering about it too. Whats up with your black roof, is that painted or vinyl? Looks really good.

I think it looks good. I'm not feeling the black/smoked out tails, however.

Hmmm, I'm trying to picture it with my wing. I think one or the other would be best. It actually reminds me of the Euro Civic Si. Not saying that's a bad thing, just what I see.

Anyway, nice job!

Think the wing could do with some contrast in the paint - like you said, the end caps black or something.. otherwise nice!

Black roof is a vinyl correct...I like the black and white contrast....I left the RVS white because I like how it looks on the black roof / black rear window tint...I'll probably go back to the shop to have the caps sprayed...for now it's fine tho

I should have the STI wing on soon (if I find someone to trunk swap with)...I'll post updated pics at that time so you can get a better idea...there are 2 pics on the internet however...





After comparing these pics to mine, I think i'm pretty dead on with placement...

I think it looks better with the STI wing. IMO it doesn't flow as well as it does with the
04-07 models.

i'm sure you just paid to paint it white, but i'd make at least the vein black to match the roof. It think it'll look a bit better.

i like it.

My opinion, It would look much better wingless or with STi wing.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone...I think it's funny how to comments can change from 'I hate it' to 'I need to get one'...what really matters is that I like the look and I'm keeping it...more pics to come once I get the time to wash the car...maybe some in motion as well

Definitely looks better with the STI wing, IMO. Even with the wing, though, it doesn't seem to "flow" as well as it does on the older body styles. It seems like the ends are a little blocky for the smoother lines of the new body style.

When you say you might get the end caps painted black, were you intending to do the entire cap? I think doing what cmiller219 said - just painting the center part that's held on by the screws - would provide a nice touch of contrast. Oh, and paint the screw heads, too.
