STI Lip Kit for 2015 WRX & WRX STI

In early April, I got my first look at the new 4th Generation WRX and WRX STI.  On-hand, they also had a WRX loaded up with every accessory you could get for the car, including something I haven't seen available yet: the STI Lip Kit.  It's a 3-part deal, with a black lip added to the front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper, all with a tiny silver emblem with that iconic "STI" logo printed in Cherry Blossom Red.  It added that extra bit of "oomph" to the design that really gave it some more road presence.

I've yet to see another WRX out there with these parts on it, so I looked into things a little more.  The Parts Brochure for the 2015 WRX and WRX STI lists them as such.  I also added MSRP prices on them.

STI Under Spoiler - Front (E2410VA000) - $399.00
STI Under Spoiler - Side (E2610VA000) - $499.00
STI Under Spoiler - Rear Quarter (E5610VA000) - $335.00
Total: $1,233.00

Now, obviously these parts are a bit pricey.  Putting that coveted STI logo on anything pretty much doubles it's price tag.  However, there's not much markup in these.  Both local dealerships that I called and were only listing these parts with a $20-$40 discount at most.  The dealer cost isn't too far off from MSRP.

Presently, if you're ordering a WRX from a dealer, they do not have the option to add these parts on from the factory.  This may change, but as of this post (May 2014), that's what it's like now.  Unlike most parts, like the Performance Exhaust, these can only be ordered as parts through a dealer and then added on later.  I'm not sure why this is, although I would imagine there might be a risk of damaging these parts being loaded on and off of transports.  Pictures and part numbers are listed below of each part.

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering how satisfied you are with the fitment and overall appearance of the under spoilers? I am worried about dirt and debris getting jammed in the gaps.

    1. Any kit is going to collect dust and dirt in the gaps, Subaru or otherwise. If you're doing a lot of driving on dirt or gravel, a lip kit isn't going to be ideal. If it's mostly in town and on asphalt, you should be fine.
