wrx handling vs sti handing

Does anyone have a picture of the backend with the top piece of the wing removed, with just the bottom piece still bolted to the trunk?

I'm curious to know if this may be a compromise solution to having either that big wing or nothing at all.

Not yet, I wish I could. It's due in a couple weeks. I don't want anyone to go to that trouble - I guess I'll just wait. Just curious.

My spot on waiting list might be for sale!

my suspicion is that you couldn't just run with the bottom piece. you'll have ugly screw holes, and i think the wing is largly hollow. so unless you're looking for a way to carry goldfish, i think you'd need to do some mods to the the lower wing. if i get a second tonight, i'll take it apart and post pics.

Perhaps for the people that hate the wing one could find a bodykit manufacturer that would eleminate the center section leaving you with "pink cadillac" style fins...Done right it really could look trick

It would be very easy to do what is shown above....only with small little fins.

I think it would look pretty cheesy IMO...but hey, *here's* to being different.

That is a cool idea above......

That's what I wanted, just two vertical fins without the cross piece. As an ex Naval Aviator, I was going for the F-14 Tomcat look.

i-club meeting in alexandria

Someone on Nasioc actually photoshopped a car with just the lower element, as well as removing the vertical fins and compressing the elements closer together.

I think both are superior looking to the stock wing myself.

I don't know who did these PS's, but here are the pics:

It's.... umm... a little less "hey, look at me" maybe adding a bit of sleeper factor (well, with the idiots) :) The first pic isn't bad.

Eww... whats with the Airplane?
Makes the car look more like a joke...
I dont really like the spoilers show above either. I think ill stick with the Shopping Cart spoiler that comes with the STi!

I think that the two vertical slits sounds like a neat idea though!
