Default Perrin gurney flap for 08-14 WRX/STI hatch wing

Hi all,

Just looking for something a bit more aggressive than the WRX wing on my outback sport without doing the wing risers. Wondered if anyone has done the hatch gurney flap and how they like it?

I did it on my '09 WRX Hatch. I like it a lot. It's subtle but looks good. Gotta make sure it's what you want cause once you drill the 12 holes, necessary to mount it, there's no turning back. Also... I wasn't a huge fan of the rivets they use to mount it. I had a hard time getting them to collapse right. I had one that just wouldn't hold once installed. The kit comes with a couple extra incase you mess one up. I recommend that you use a new drill bit and drill the hole as straight as you can. You want the hole to be a tight fit so the rivet will bite into the hole you just drilled. If you get sloppy drilling the hole the rivet just won't hold which is what I think happened to me. I found a fix for it but it's best just to get it right the first time. Having a buddy around will help a lot also when it comes time to mark the holes before drilling. If you think you want one I say get it. I really like mine.
