Hiroki - I could use a favor, if you don't mind. Last year I bought a JDM rear window and wiper setup for my BD from JHot Imports. I haven't looked at the stuff in a long time, it's just been sitting in my basement. When I got the parts from JHot I couldn't figure out how the wiper assembly was supposed to attach to the rear deck. It seemed like I was missing a bracket, or that the JDM rear deck (the actual metal framework that's underneath) is different on a JDM car. I wouldn't think the latter was true, so I think there's just a bracket missing (or I'm an idiot).

Is there any chance you might be able to look at / get some pics of a BD's rear wiper setup so I can figure out what I'm missing?

pat, ill try. but keep in mind that your generation is almost 10 years old now. the cost for the biennial safety inspection by the government is almost going to be as much as the car is worth. That and sedans are quite rare if there is a wagon version to be had.

if you only had a bg.... maybe i can go pester a dealership to have a look at a shop manual or something

Yup, RGR's 17x7.5 I got them a couple of weeks ago...BBS is clearancing the line for $1040 shipped for 4 (damn good for forged rims).

I however, found a guy that had 3 locally for ridiculously cheap, and bought the 4th one for $300 from BBS...let's just say the 3 rims cost less than that one brand new rim
