Default plasma blue trunk swap solution?

I'm thinking about buying another STI but this round I'm looking for a Plasma Blue sedan but I don't want the big wing. so.......

Since Plasma Blue is STI only I can't do a trunk swap with a WRX owner what are my options/solutions? I'd rather not fill and repaint the trunk lid.

Does anyone have any ideas? TIA.

You could buy a WRX trunklid and repaint it, or fill the holes and repaint the STI trunk lid. Those are pretty much the only options.

IIRC, The 2012 WRX's are available in PBP. Pre-2012 for Canada, also.

I'm pretty sure PBP is a sedan and STi limited color only... No?

For the 2011, you would be correct, but for the '12 they responded to people who wanted that color on wrx's as well:

NEW
The 2012 WRX and STI is no longer considered part of the Impreza family since the 12 Imprezas are all new and the WRX and STI are not following that redesign. All STI 4 doors- get redesigned silver alloy wheel
All models- Headlight surround bezels now silver, replacing black
All 4 doors- Trunk trim on 4 door now body colored, was satin finish
All WRX- Center console panel on WRX is now gray, replacing silver
Plasma Blue Pearl now available on all models (previously only on STI 4 door)
