WRX Spoiler change

Hi all, I've now well and truly got the mod bug! I'm looking at changing the standard spoiler to an sti type one. I realize I can't bolt on an official sti one as the mountings are different but could anyone recommend a dealer that supplies high quality copies to suit my rex.
Also I'm looking at upgrading the air filter to start, would k&n be a place to look at??

Re: WRX Spoiler change

Thanks for the link bud, but not really keen on the riser blocks, more after the sti look-a-like type. I have seen a company that dose sti type ones but they have a large bolt on plate that doesn't look to good, i'm guessing thats how they've solved the 4 bolt mounting problem.

Just had a thought, is the boot lid on an sti the same dimensions as the one on a wrx?? If so would buying a sti boot lid fit straight on?? I'm sure its not the cheapest option though!

I hear all different brands are best and you get more horsepower outa this and that product read a jap performance mag lately doing tests with cone filters Itg and Quickshift came in the top for the most hp and airflow but having said that all cars are different and set up different but at the end of the day whatever you think your car runs best with id stick with as I said they all different
