I'm speechless...
Where can I get one that won't cost more than my car? Any eBay replicas?

As other people have said, this front end looks amazing, and IMO its all because of those sexy fog lights

This is called the "OEM JDM STI Lip for Wagon".


The Side doesn't look right.

Because that's not it.
They said it on the previous page, it's just the OEM JDM lip for the sedan.

I know , but I couldn't find it. This Wagon Lip costs btw 500$. I'd rather buy a sedan lip and adjust it to my wagon.

It may be hard to do, since your bumper isn't as wide.
You should do a sedan conversion with the lip!
But yeah, the sedan one (from what I've seen) runs about the same price wise. I guess you used to be able to buy replicas for about $200, but I couldn't find any.
Oh well, someone post more pictures please.

Well, I think it looks good, but I wouldn't put it on my wagon. I don't think, it fits atm. I mean, 2.0l n/a and such a hugh lip... Naaaah, I don't know.
Sorry, I don't like the sedan conversion.

18x9 with an inset of 35 is what I'm looking for... Will I need fender work? Will these bad boys clear Brembo's?

It depends on the wheel, especially around that size.
It shouldn't take much fender work, but it will take some.
It also depends on the tire size and if you run any camber (not that you need it fro that size.)

Thank you! I know a lot of guys who have left the car wash happy and clean and when their car dried...scratched in multiple places.

I always spay the brush before I use it and have never had scratches. Just make sure you keep the car waxed and you'll never get them.

That's what I am saying. They didn't spray the brush before they used it and from people setting it down bristle down, washing under fenders, washing off mud etc.. caused scratches from rocks and pebbles or similar things that the brush picked up while cleaning.

ugh I get shivers just thinking about it lol. I don't use it everytime, just when it's too cold to hand dry it afterwards and get all the dirt off that the soapwater misses

Yeah I do too. Needless to say they either don't use the brush or throughly rinse it off before they use it.
I always just give mine a shot of Meguiars Quik Wax after I'm done washing.
