Default 2011-2014 Subaru WRX/STI Sedan Rear Diffuser Thread

There are tons of threads on here for lips, wheels, exhausts, etc for 2011-2014 WRX/STI's but I did not see one for rear diffusers so I thought I would create a thread for one. Please post pictures and other info for rear diffusers that fit the sedan body style. I'll start.

V1 Rear Diffuser


V2 Rear Diffuser

im thinking of purchasing the ht autos v2 diffuser. Im sort of ok about drilling into the bumper. how do i secure it towards the center of the car? i heard something about drilling into the trunk? im not doing that. is there another way or am i missing something? is it possible to install whole diffuser using double sided tape?

Lol.

It might be possible to mount it using the cusco bar, but realistically, if you aren't comfortable with the proper install, don't do it.

Double sided tape? Really?

Double side tapes alone are strong, but over time it will fail. You have to bolt it /screw it to the car.

Yeah you're gonna probably have to use a couple of screws. Tape definitely won't hold for long.

Nice pic of the diffuser but personally I'd rather have the diffuser with a quad exhaust. Looks more aggressive IMO.

Helps with the rear downforce keeping the car lower to the ground and access air flow releasing/exiting from rear diffuser more efficiently to increase speed. F1 terms that is.

Cool thread. Of course the most expensive ones are the best.... I give kudos to people attempting to DIY one of these, but it if looks like ****, don't do it.
