I scratch the lip weekly but it's better than scratching the paint . It's hard black abs plastic so it takes a good beating.

I got mine specifically to take damage. Beating the **** out of a $160 lip is a lot easier on the wallet than tapping something and having to replace an $800 bumper.

and it looks cool enough, so its all good. I dont personally like the ones that come out really far though. Looks tacky, bro.

Same here...IMO the trunk looks extremely bare without the wing and doesn't fit in with the massive hood scoop on the 04-07's. The 11-12's just look like Toyota Corollas with a body kit when they're wingless.

I go out of my way to switch lanes and get aside or behind other modified subarus on the freeway, just in hopes that they will notice me and i can wave back.


Subaru love.

When you go to wave to another wrx/sti and when they give you a weird look you realize you aren't even in your wrx/sti.

That 240 mile mark feels like the max you can get even though you tell yourself you'll "drive slower".
