Guys

I KNOW this is for an SG, but will it fit the SF??

https://www.chaplinssubarugenuineparts.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_25&products_id=624

I don't really like the look of the earlier SF spoiler, which seems to have an integral brake light https://www.chaplinssubarugenuineparts.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_25&products_id=1180. As far as I can tell this would be overkill as I already have one in the glass, and who's to say it would be legal having two etc. I suppose I could remove the brake light if that is the only one that will fit and fill the gap, but the filler will inevitably sink etc and this seems like an awful lot of work just for a spoiler...

I keep missing them on fleabay! Grrrrrrrrrr.

OH YES IT IS......

I prefer the lightless to the lit.

Forget an SG, no chance of fitting.

I'm planning to fit a genuine JDM SF spoiler to the car this week or next and just realize that we've already got a high level brake light on the car !
So we don't want two brake light ! Do early SF5 forester or JDM forester got high level brake light ?

My 1998 T/tb (JDM) has the brake light built into the rear spoiler.

The JDM spoiler already got a brake light built-in and the car too ! So is there anyway to remove the high level brake light from the car ? And get a trim to cover deleted brake light ?

Not sure where you'd get one over there, but it looks like something does exist to cover up the light.
I have no first hand experience with this, just remembered seeing it in the following thread.

I have a high level break light in the back window, so have a light less rear spoiler, the window mounted one shines out underneath it.

Absolutely mate!! I was almost ready to import one from the US from another SFOF member.

Now where's that credit card...?

Thanks for assistance as always folks!

No, MDG, it won't be fitted for the 27th. Unfortunately!!
