I don't mind strange if it's functional and on the track. It's when people make a non-functional version for the street that it becomes a joke.

Well you don't expect to drive around on the street with that rear splitter do you? Also when the hell will you utilize it legally on the street?

There's hundreds of people driving around the streets with rear splitters (non-functional street versions) on their STI's.

I'm talking about the huge functional ones, who's realistically going to drive around streets with that on, and when will it be useful when the speed limit is 60km/hr (35mph)?

That's why they give consumer cars, consumer grade "splitters".

We have had club runs where we have CAMS affiliation, basically, if you have rally rego plates you are good to go IRT hitting the street for an CAMS affiliated club on a organised run in your race car.

Sadly rally plates are hard to get now because the system was abused.

It's a blast watching racecars with aero, cages and lots of noise cruising around the local twisties, the look on the faces of the general population is amazing.

^Vid is like a month old. Also is just one of 5000 youtube vloggers just giving some generic opinions based on a media release, so nothing interesting going on.

I'll eagerly wait for a real review/test

mmm made an account just to comment on this.

Dealership promised me they can get me one and that I'll pay MSRP +1000$.

Now to just wait and see what MSRP is.

Manager said that it will be the same as a Limited.
