I like it and have been considering doing this to my blue/silver but I do not have the stones to rip the wing off of her. Evertime I look at it there is just something about that wing that I like. I must admit that it does look nice without it though.

Looks great man! :) I think the thing I like most about removing the spoiler is that you can see the mean curve on the trunk lid...you definitely miss out on that with the wing on.

sweet, did you replace the trunk or just take off the wing, I am going to replace my trunk lid with a CF lid if I can find one for a decent price

Looks good! I was torn at first, decided to stay with the wing, but I do like the wingless look too. As wrx sti 04 says, you can really see the shape of the trunk w/o the wing...

Once again, I think I'll be the only dissenting opinion here:

Maybe it's because I've gotten so used to it being there but it just doesn't look right without the wing.

I love that wing.

Sweet car, but sorry just not an STi without the rear wing. I prefer the rally look of the big wing. Looks unbalanced to me with a bus stop scoop on the front and no wing in the back. Mine is staying on. Chicks dig wings!

dude i only traded the wing not the motor, dccd,turbo,exhaust,interior,tranny,or anything else that makes up my sti. . get over it, i just gto rid of my wing, it still goes fast as hell,and handles the same. not trying to argue, everyone has their opinion. as long as you build your car to your tastes, screw what other people think. it was my 31k that bought the car. it's still a sti bro. look at the spec c, no wing.... :roll:

those SCANS are fm.

I think the car looks worlds better without that obnoxious wing.
Maybe next you could do something about the cheesegrater hoodscoop.

I'm not trashing STis, I love everything about the car, especially the styling, except for the wing and the scoop.

I will be getting one when I can find a decent used one.

I did a wing I really like -> http://www.do-luck-usa.com/skyline.html
It's a CF unit made for Skylines.

BTW, I'd never used those avatars to the left <-- but I think they're pretty sweet.
I just sized a bit of my car wallpaper collection (249 pics) to avatar size.
PM me if anyone is interested is them, I have just about every car you can imagine.

The 249 wallpapers I prepped are 734Kb in Win.Zip.
I can could add a few hundred more pics.

Is there any way I could post that Zip file on this forum?
