Default Impreza 2.0 front splitter

So I recently communicated with Bayson R about the availability of a splitter for our cars. Of course they don't have any and don't plan to make any. Until I said that there was a demand. This is the email they sent me:

Hi, Vincent


We don't have any planning of development of a front lip for the Impreza model at the moment. However, if you can possibly to start an post in the forum may help us to see how many other Impreza owners out there interested for a front lip. FYI, there is a huge tooling overhead to develop a front lip, we are talking about at least $20,000 to $30,000 initial investment. As you can see that we are averaging about $60~$200 a front lip, which this mean we need to have the demanding to push the lips with volume in order to recover from the tooling fees. Please do send us the link if you decided to do a posting in the forum, we may continue to monitor the posting before making any further decision.

So how many of you really want a splitter for a reasonable price, vs. paying big bucks for OEM.

Now is the chance to speak up.

Keep it $150 or under, tasteful , understated and i'd be very interested! Now If it came Pre painted in factory colors it would be hard to pass up.

It would be interesting to see what kind of effects a lip spoiler would have on these cars.

My concern(s) would be hurting the aerodynamics, loss of mpg, and possibly even prematurely wearing out of some front suspension components.

I would be in for one 100% in black like they make for the 2015 WRX, almost an exact replica of the STI lip available from Subaru for our cars.

Yep. A nice flexible plastic one. No need for carbon fiber.

If they marketed it well, they'd have a ton of buyers. Considering how much the Chargespeed and OEM lips run, anything under $200 would be a godsend.

I'm definitely interested.
