2017 Model Lineup

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.

  • 8 1/2" long antenna - use this vortex generators (Type A)
  • 9 1/8" long antenna - use 2017 version vortex generators (Type B)

Bolder Design

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 SubiSpeed Vortex Generator can be installed with ease. Alignment is simple because it goes around the antenna and the sides rest in the rain gutters.

Overall Satisfaction
  1. Satisfied

    By Jake October 17, 2021

    Paint had swirl mark scratches on it, also some weird white texture stuff on it. Buy extra tape cuz supplied tape isn’t enough. Fitment is very tight and hard to adjust with tape on once you peel off safety peel. Use two ppl for easier install. Overall happy with it. Looks nice. Lil pricey for what it is tho.

  2. Perfect fitment

    By webboy March 17, 2020

    Paint matched in black fitment is absolutely perfect. Supplied tape comes in a roll not preset on the vortex generator. Roll is not enough to apply fully. Be sure to have some extra or order some.

  3. Great visual mod

    By Cristian June 13, 2017

    I got the cwp color it looks great but I didn't get the supplied tape adhesive which was kinda disappointing so I had to go and buy some of my own , there were minor scratches and it was tricky getting the piece to fit perfectly but other than that I still love the vortex generator and I would recommend getting it my car looks so much better !
