Default Newbie question: options for a different STI spoiler?

The rear spoiler on my '06 STI sits right in my field of vision. I may get used to it, just curious what my options are for something lower/closer to the trunk. I looked around in the "products" area, any suggestions?
Thanks

Ok I will do some more research around 3 options: nothing, WRX, or a mod on what I have. It looks like the base is pretty well fixed to the trunk, but that the sides/top may come off easily. My first step may be to just start some disassembly. Then again, in reality, since I have not yet had the car a week, I should just see if I get used to it first.

swap trunks with someone with a wrx or wingless trunk lid. Or get a syms wing or a wingless trunk with a mines wing.

I used the chargespeed risers to get the wing above the rear-view. I don't know if it fits the '06 wing. And even if it does. Find a schmuck with a wingless trunk that's willing to trade while the paint still matches. I'm tired of the gaudy wing, and the attention it brings. And with the java black pearl, my options are limited.

You probably have a great opportunity to trade AND make some money off that trunk. But it won't last.

I assumed the Impreza trunks were interchangeable so a WRX one will work. That is good to know. If I don't get used to it quickly then it is decision time: which is the least hassle. 1. Finding and doing a trunk swap vs 2. messing with the spoiler.
