From my understanding its just for the hatch but to be sure I would contact them and just tell them your year/model and they can help you out. I just dont want to tell you the wrong thing ya know? and no problem G.Coop, Im within 10minutes so why not? and yah idk how much the kit will cost for the 2.5i's though , hopefully less than $600. The diffuser again was made of ABS plastic but it seemed kinda heavy like 10-15 lbs...
-As for the exhaust if you live in Cali it should be fine (plus the fact its a wrx exhaust means its good enough quality to last at least 3year/36,000miles lol.), i forgot what the law name was called but unless the dealership can prove that the aftermarket part or product caused a problem with your car then they cant void your warranty. I myself got a custom exhaust with a magnaflow muffler and had the dealership do a maintenance checkup and they didnt say a word about it (yet again I had it routed the same path as the stock one was, so you should be fine)-sorry for the long explanation guys..

At the store they said $125 cash which is probably better than shipping that large thing. They also have side skirts and rear diffuser (similiar to HT Autos abs plastic only) in both polyurethane and abs plastic. So tomorrow I will be getting the lip hopefully as for the "add on" lip like Jordan test fitted they had the exact same one but the guy said it was for a wrx of course but I dont know if it will fit as I have a hatch. But I will definitely ask more questions tomorrow. Hopefully that lip will come with installation hardware too! hope this helps guys.
The lip you linked is the standard STi lip. I'll bet a million dollars that you will have to cut it to fit.

Hatchback only. Not going to fit on the sedan bumper.

It's not going to void anything. A catback in general won't void your warranty, a Subaru catback for sure won't void your warranty.

Ok... Here's a picture I found of all the pieces.



That's the Seibon version that is carbon fiber and costs $1750. (Which is absurd.)

All the pieces can be found separately on eBay. Looks like the front and sides are $139.99 with free shipping and the rear is $112.99 +$35 shipping.

are the sides the same for the sedan and hatch? because if thats the case I could pick up the front lip/ side skirts and just pay subarugenuineparts for a set of rear spats to complete the look

I can't see why they would be different. I would give it a shot.

^ If nobody else with the sedan orders these by the spring time, I will be the guinea pig and give them a shot. I will contact them before though to see if they have any information that would help my decisions.

If both of those pieces fit, I will be a very happy man

I know, sorry if I didnt say this properly but It looks similiar to that design; that would just be plain stupid of me if I just said it should fit lol. and the kit you showed look nice but i totally agree; no one will pay for that unless they love carbon fiber-but either way 2.5i's need a cheaper solution that looks better than the diy garage lip IMHO.. sorry i couldnt help the sedan crowd. If it helps you guys are lucky since you can get wrx dual exhaust and I cant without an entirely different bumper and a whole lot of $

No worries.

The dual/quad exhaust tips for hatches isn't that bad. I figure it could be done for $1500. $500 for the bumper, $500 for the paint, and another $500 for the catback. I kinda want it. I know it will look (and possibly sound) awesome. But it would be totally silly on a 2.5i.

I like my dual mufflers

but atleast with the 5 doors, you guys can buy parts that fit the 08-10 sti (i believe) We can only buy from a wrx (non widebody) and certain parts from the '11 sti (widebody)

Only when it comes to exhaust, tail lights and trunk parts. Everything else is identical.

+infinity, they look way better. I dont even care about the automated climate control, I just want the stupid knobs to not look like they will break if I turn them too hard

Physically it could work. The fact that the fan and vent controls are swapped may mean they are different.

But after looking on eBay, there are a couple on there that are ~$100. I am almost tempted to give it a shot.

I got my skirts and lip that look identical to those seibon ones they are not the same as the ones from the sport model either from the dealership when i got my car & i'm pretty sure they are identical to the ones on subarugenuineparts. As for the rear spats i actually just ordered them from subarugenuineparts so i'll let you know if i have any luck with them when they come in and i get them painted and put on, i herd there may be some minor modification or shaving needed i'm not totally sure but i'm sure i will find out when they get here in a few days(Hopefully as the mail is being slow the last while.)

For any of you who were asking about the OEM lip from subaru this is the lips you get from the dealership with the base model They differ from the sport model as these ones are more shallow and rounded they look more like the WRX lip, i also have the rear spat's ordered from subarugenuineparts. so i will let all of you know when i get that worked out.

She's a little muddy but that's ok! & it was raining and cold so i didn't want to stay out to long to make it look better.

Since there's been a few people looking and I've helped out a few members to help customize their rides, I've joined NASIOC.

Shoot me a PM if you need a 2.5i decal.
