That was exactly what I originally asked them to do, but I guess they forgot to write that step down...I will get the screws + caps painted black (just the removable cover)...STI wing should be going on today...pics to come

As promised here at the pics with the STI wing...just did the trunk swap today. I think it looks way better and I got the look I was going for...definitely think it flows better now, but I know some will still dislike...it's not for everyone.

Better pics to come...in the meantime, does anyone know any good spots to to jump this badboy and check to see if the nosediving issue has been corrected with the additional downforce?

I would have painted the center section a black like how it comes on the 06-07.

I guess this is what it would look like for the most part if I painted the caps black...wouldn't be as dark tho

I think it would look better if you left the end caps white and then the spoiler black. Then you do the same for the wing

no....no it isnt


jesus....there are some really weird ideas about things out there...WRONG ideas

and ideas about aerodynamics and ricers and some of their dumb mods are some of the worst

but race karz do it so it MUST be good

sorry OP, but I was reaching for the same idea. If you take those silly looking plates off the side, it may blend in better.

So if it's not to create more downforce and you seem to be an expert in aerodynamics, please share some of your knowledge with us great and all knowing one...

here's some proof...there is much more talk about it on the web, but I don't feel like digging for it

I didn't design the spoiler, that's just how it came and i'm not going to modify it

I remember reading in a few different places that the roof vane increased the air pressure or density across the horizontal plane of the oem spoiler of the 06-07 sti's. I think it would push the air under the new spoilers since they are taller.

when mounted on the vehicle it was designed for

the bloody 'roof vane' just directs air over the airfoil of the rear wing to increase its effectiveness

a 'diffuser' is another animal altogether


aerodynamics isnt difficult.....but it isnt quite what many THINK it is

increasing its effectiveness = more downforce...who said anything about diffusers?

Uncle scotty is right about the new wing design, I think it will push the air down below the spoiler. But, if your not jumping the car or doing 160mph, probably wont matter.

Looks good, doesn't fall into the small box that most nasioc'ers live in. I think it needs color contrast though, too much white.

It looks very out of place. You have too much going on.

increasing the effectiveness ON THE VEHICLE IT WAS DESIGNED FOR......other use is null and void and just so you know

and this is where the kiddie thing comes into play, ya see....kiddies dont KNOW...and get it wrong more often than not

and there IS a(HUGE) difference between increasing down force and decreasing lift

and this is all aerodynamics 101

but most dont know that

Or...most don't care because I guarantee 99% of the Subarus that have a roof vane spoiler didn't put it on their car for functionality (and if they did I doubt they're utilizing the added downforce)...it's for the looks, which is exactly what mine is for. So you can blab about aerodynamics and little children all day, but that won't get you anywhere on this thread

Only drilled through the first layer of the body and fastened it with Rivet nuts...I have pics of the install and will post them when I get a chance.

I let the body shop that painted it install it for me as well...

I'm still debating between 35 legal in IL or 30 ? They way yours look 35 looks pretty good right now I might have to see it in person when I got to the shop and then make my final decision
