Default 2011 to 2012 Rear Bumper Trim

When I purchased my 2011 STI sedan I it came with the SPT Carbon Fiber Trunk trim. Unfortunately it cracked and faded under normal weather conditions and was looking to replace it. I am not a fan of the stock chrome that came in that year and was looking to grab a pre-painted 2012+ trim piece. Do these 2012 trim pieces fit down on my model? Also, does anyone know how the dealer handles these dealer-addons for warranty?

Yes it will fit, just make sure you get the 2012+ sedan trunk trim and not the hatchback one.

The problem with the SPT Carbon Fiber Trunk trim fading and cracking is well known... they're just not durable. For the warranty, I have no idea.

Thanks for the info. Ordered now, so hopefully I can get rid of that eye sore.

Yeah, of all my exterior mods, the paint matched trunk trim is my favorite. It managed to change the whole look of the rear for the better. The chrome trunk trim looks completely out of place. Even the SPT one looks ricey to me.
