Default 2011 STI trunk swap thread?

sorry i did a little searching and didnt see if you guys had a trunk swap thread like Nasioc and 3gwrx.

I have a 09 wrx DGM trunk with small wing. a guy on Nasioc backed out after telling me its mine and i waited 3-4 weeks!!

of course im looking for a 2011 DGM STI wing. i have found guys that have no wing like on a 08 and 11 wrx and 08-11 2.5i that want my wing but thats a last resort because if i cant find a swap ill have to buy and paint a STI wing from the factory. id rather not spend $300+.

so if you want a small wing and want to trade please let me know. if you want wingless i might be able to get that also but the guy is like 3 hours away.

I'm not sure if you guys are aware of this or not, or if it even applies to you. The salesman at the Subaru dealer told me, while I was taking delivery, that if I wanted to ever take off the wing I had to be sure to swap all of the springs/hinge parts on the trunk or I may risk throwing the lid through the back window. Something to think about.

that whole trunk going thru the window thing is BS in my opinion. The hinges regardless of how fast they swing open can only open to a certain point, i tried pushing mine gently to see if it would go further but even with the extra force it doesnt budge past where it stops normally. And without the wing you have even more distance until something would hit the window. doublezero took the wing off his white sedan and he didnt have any problems it just opens on its own instead of just popping up a little. just search for his member journal

Yea it was definitely a bit of an "" moment when he told me that, but I'm just relaying what the stealership told me

DGM is dark grey metallic. you have OBP, odsidian black pearl.

at this point id trade you and have it painted!! but you'll have an easier time than me finding a trade.

just the torsion bars and wing need swaped. but thats only if your going wingless trunk. the 09 wrx for example that has the small wing is very thick. the sti while taller is very thin in the middle. im sure there close enough on weight it wouldnt matter.

I swapped my PBP winged deck for a stock deck. I didn't swap the torsion bars (yet) and while the trunk does open quickly, it's not that violent. Typically I am standing there to catch it.
