    Silver Project front camber plates for GC8

    I bought these Silver Project front camber plates a while back and no longer need them. They have never been fitted to a car or test fitted so the condition is new. They're made by a company who specialise in drift and track fitments and seem to be extremely high quality. They allow an...

    Confusion on my own model

    So I own what I think is a 98 STI Type-R, but a few things are confusing about it. Used the VIN decoder for my model number, figured out since it was white from factory its not the V-Limited, but the trim code is the same as the V-Limited and the kicker is that my option code isn't listed for...

    Authentic or replica STI catalog 'sport' bumper

    Took off my front bumper on my V4 Type R for 'repairs' due to the previous owner. I was wondering if this bumper is worth fixing. Is it an authentic or replica? If it's replica i will probably try and buy a factory v4/v5 front bumper. The car also came with STI catalog TE07s, STI catalog rear...
