No sir, Jive. Car looks FINE.

Rollin' with _davin and kyletakahero last night in their rides:



I REALLY wish I had a real camera. I'm starting to desire taking pictures again recently and always have ideas in my head, but no means to execute them for the moment.

I SPY SUPA



Been meaning to take a sound clip of my SPT exhaust, because when I was in the market for one there were seriously 4 videos on youtube of it on the hatchback...

So I did. And apparently now there are much more. Oh well.

18" Rota DPT, I believe 9.5 width. Kyle will probably chime in. They were black, then painted white, then plasti-dipped...

I don't like them. Too heavy for my taste.

Yeah, you're right. I do enjoy the width. Sick looking. I swear those wheels are like 30lbs each, though!

Saw a 2011+ SWP STI sedan that had this mounted. It looked paint-matched from the distance I saw it at. Not too bad, otherwise, yeah, not really my cup of tea for some reason.

I enjoy seeing other people try it, though! *thumbs up*

Without a wing/spoiler, it IS an appearance mod

Pics make the VG look cheap, far better seen in person. If the car doesn't have any other black(wheels/tint etc.) it's even worse. probably best to color match. I'll get shots up soon.

LOL. They do on the Evo's but not this plastic/carbon piece by SPT held on by 3M tape. I highly doubt Subaru put much R&D into that piece. It's purely cosmetic but you can think otherwise.

I see why everyone thinks you are a tard.

It will localize airflow to help utilize the rear wing. Think about the air pressure/ flow differences that occur along the rear roof. This piece will mainstream the flow differences and direct it at the spoiler/wing at an equalized flow rate.

If you do not have a wing, it's just for schitz and giggles.

For once celery isn't full of ****...even these plastic pieces provide enough to make a difference.

Winless they do nothing. And who cares if they are held in by tape....that double sided tape is stronger than a lot of things.

With that said I don't like how it looks up close. From a distance it's okay.

Right. My bad. I should have clarified, they help if you have a wing OTHERWISE it's purely cosmetic. Reference to 3M tape wasn't ment to offend you Jive.
