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 (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.

  1. Awesome........

    By Tyron October 13, 2018

    Straight forward install and gave my WRX a new look. Glad i got V.2 cause i haven’t seen nobody with it on their car so far..... i luv it.

  2. Nice look for an Easy Install

    By JP January 19, 2018

    Came with a roll of 3m double sided tape and made installation a breeze. Took me less than 20 minutes to do. Looks great on the car, definitely recommended.

  3. Looks great but...

    By Jordan May 29, 2017

    I love that it looks great! I definitely love how it gives the car a more aggressive look! However, I do understand other people's point of view about the installation part. The tape doesn't make it easy to put it on your car. I would recommend it to anyone though!

  4. VORTEX V2

    By Engle-Jones May 5, 2017

    AWESOME this vortex G v2 FITS PERFECT!!! mudflaps from subispeed too..

  5. EASY INSTALL

    By Anthony March 13, 2017

    Pretty much straight forward installation. But the tape came with it was not long enough. But the tape was durable, durable enough that it was giving me some hard time to re-align the vortex than other than that it was really easy install. Will recommend to anyone :D

  6. Easy Install/Great Aesthetic

    By Anthony February 16, 2017

    I am very happy with my purchase of this vortex generator for my '17 LBP WRX. Out of the other options I wanted a more subtle, yet aggressive look and I felt this did the best job. It looks great, super easy to install as well especially since it goes right over the antenna. Subispeed provides you with 3M double sided adhesive tape which was just enough to place on the vortex generator. If you're looking for subtle, but aggressive then this is the generator to get. Tip: when installing, make sure to test fit the generator and push down around the antenna to create a tight seal in the center.

  7. The Good and Not Bad.

    By Bobby January 26, 2017

    The Good: The install was easy and smooth. Even for someone with a hint of OCD. The tape install and placement couldn't have been simpler. The Not Bad: I do see where there will be need to replace the tape eventually, and that will be a little work. Overall adding a routine maintenance aspect to the product. The Overall: I like the look, and I have had a few compliments on the look of it as well from random appreciators. I would purchase this mod again for cost and effect.

  8. Awesome fit

    By Alex January 12, 2017

    It's easy to install and looks great!

  9. Poor Adhesion

    By William January 3, 2017

    I think it looks really nice on the car and the installation couldn't be anymore simple, but I'm not too happy with the tape. After about 8 months or so the tape started separating from the Vortex Generator. The tape stayed stuck to the roof of the car, but pulled away from the generator. Going to have to get some stronger tape and try to re-apply.
