2018 Vehicle Fitment
Subaru has been changing things up a lot over the last couple of years. If your antenna measures front to back approximately, 9 1/8" inches, you can use this vortex generator. However, if your antenna is approximately 8 1/2" from front to back, please use the 2015-2016 model OLM / SubiSpeed Vortex generators.
- 9 1/8" long antenna - use this version (Type B)
- 8 1/2" long antenna - use 2015-2016 version vortex generators (Type A)
While the Subaru OEM vortex generator is a neat addition to the 2015+ WRX / STI, OLM's version makes a bolder statement. One of the biggest gripes was that the factory piece did not go all the way to the sides of the vehicle or the back. It also stops half way up the antenna.
Using automotive grade double sided adhesive tape (supplied), the OLM Vortex Generator can be installed with ease. Alignment is simple because it goes around the antenna and the sides rest in the rain gutters.
NOTE: Please do not apply Isopropyl Alcohol to the Vortex Generator during the installation process. This may lead to discoloration. Alcohol is intended for cleaning the vehicle installation surface only.

Paint matched or bust
Vortex Generator was shipped quickly and was easy to install. Paint matched is the way to go. It's a perfect match and it looks awesome. Really helps separate your ride from stock. Be aware that it's definitely possible to install solo but a second pair if hands would be even better because once the double sided tape is down...thats it. It won't budge so you can't even shift it slightly. But the fit is excellent so as long as you get it over the antenna you can't mess it up. Providing some pics below.
