I agree with Gamite, the way the trunk is made it looks odd witrout one!

But this is a tough call, it does make the car look very clean sans wing. But its a PART of the car, its not like your putting the STI wing on a WRX, the hood scoop is 3" bigger than the WRX one (i think) so it need the bigger wing.

This is a tough call, just like with TYPE R's, they look soo good both ways... but i mean its one of the things that MAKES the car!

Leave the wing on. Back looks so tiny without it. Or if you can find a nice smaller wing. But definetly some kind of wing on taht car.

I've always wanted to remove the wing and hood scoop off an STI(replace the TMIC with a FMIC), untill those ****ers from tuner transformation did it.

WRX - without a wing
STi - with a wing

hood scoop is too big, so you gotta have a wing to compansate for that

STI = WING

sleeper = off.. but then again the gold rims don't give the sense of sleeper.

If u take it off make ur car pure clean.. if u leave it on.. go all show :-)

Leave it on. Stay with tradition and the way the car was made to look is my opinion.

I didn't think I'd ever say this, but... Put the wing back on. It looks weird without it for some reason.
