It's just hideous!

I mean are we talking 5lbs of downforce at 100mph or what?

Tried to post a pic but it didn't work.

It does make a difference but I can't say how much, but the car is very stable at 150+ mph :supergrin:

The wings on both the STI and EVO are SUPPOSED to provide additional downforce. This only really applies for high speeds. Most people in their everyday driving, these wings will make little to no difference. The only time you would probably be able to tell the little bit of difference would be if you were taking these vehicles at high speeds on the track...

I found a car mag that talked to Subaru engineers and they said about 50lbs of downforce at 100mph. Sorry no link.

Nice, but it's ugly!
