      Had to get some warranty work done on the wife's civic yesterday. Saw a nice black 16 sti limited for $36k. Not sure what color and options you are looking for, but if your willing to make a trip out here, it's at Superstition Honda.

      Oh you...

      OP, you need to update the sig now! That was a nice TTS though. I'm impressed how well those cars have held their value over the years.

      Focus RS sounds fun, Subaru interest be damned.

      Focus ST/RS

      Fusion Sport (slushbox exception)

      Charger 392 HEMI (slushbox exception, though it is a ZF 8)

      BMW 3/4 Series

      WRX/STI

      CPO EVO?

      Used CTS-V (yeeeeeeeee)

      Chevrolet SS

      idk.. that'd be my shortlist.
      2014 Ford Focus ST1 // fun
      2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES // daily
      2009 Kia Rio LX // hers

      If I'd gotten an STi, de-winging it would have been a must. Do dealers still do that?

      I like the wing, but I certainly wouldn't want to be seen driving one with it. The car is pretty enough without it in the right colour.

      Nope. I love any functional aero.

      Nothing says "I'm a tosser" like removing functional aero from a high-performance car just so you won't look like a tosser

      The wing is part of what makes an STI and STI.

      A lip spoiler is a factory option now for the Limited. Or you could do a trunk swap with a WRX owner.

      yeah, everyone, relax.

      Since 2015 Subaru sells the STI limited with a factory lip spoiler option from the factory. Most dealerships stock one or two at a time.

      For example: http://www.subaruoflasvegas.com/new/...archDepth=2:27

      If I go with an STI, I will be getting the lip spoiler option. The car looks better, and I can drive to a client's house in it without looking like a tool. At 125+MPH, however, which I will probably never reach, it will make a tad less downforce.

      The STI spoiler is functional at 80mph...

      Soooo you'll be getting something "new" but basically the same issues will come up again?

      And nothing says "Who the **** is this guy?" when I pull up to meetings like a big ass wing on an otherwise normal-looking sedan. It is a catch-22. If I wanted mad gainz yo aero, I will stick to a sports coupe where the wing isn't as out-of-place. The only way I would option the wing is if I was regularly at the track, which is admittedly this car's raison d'etre. For those of us that don't do that and need to maintain a certain image (Schnell, for example, is a lawyer and needs to looks proper at times I would imagine), the wing is a no-go.

      If you buy one, I can't stop you for getting the wing. But don't knock others that don't want it.

      Does anyone really care whether a lawyer (or anyone) is driving an Impreza or an Impreza with a wing though? I feel anyone who would notice would be the ones to also notice the hood scoop and Brembos and know what an STI is, with or without wing. And those people would also respect it.

      I work at a law firm and no one cares about the spoiler on my car.
