    Hi from Staffordshire

    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...

    Greetings from the Mountains of British Columbia, Canada

    Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. After about 25 years of dreams and foiled attempts, I've finally managed to acquire a MY95 Impreza WRX Type RA STi Version. As with many others, the exploits of the SWRT in their 555 livery during the mid 90's captured my imagination as I...

    New member with type RA

    Hi all, So I had a lockdown moment and bought a race car off eBay! Thought I got a great deal, but seems like more of good deal with repair costs!

    Rear wheel stud removal?

    I've a damaged rear wheel stud which has spiralled into an excuse to replace/upgrade all my wheel studs (Lockdown 2!). Fronts were done when I was putting my new brakes on relatively painlessly... but then I realised I of course I had the handbrake assembly to contest with for the rears. Is...

    DCCD clocks help

    Good evening. I'm currently hovering over going down the V1-3 DCCD speedo clocks route in my car having already sourced an older dash.

    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...
