As long as you don't curb your wheels, and you make sure to put it on properly, should last you a couple years at least I think.

Mines been on for at least 2+ months now and still okay..

Except when i took it into the shop for a 30k, they kind of scratched some of it off.. But has held up very well.

I have read up to 1-2 years, but for me, i would redo the plastidip every 1year, because seems to fade around that time.

Nice photo. By the way what front rotors are you running? They appear to be slotted.

Hmm interesting. So how does that setup work? Do you use the calipers that came with your car or did you switch them out for Wrx calipers thus you needed the brake bracket as well? Sorry forte questions, I've just been trying to find a solution for our front rotors lol

One is upper and one is lower. Seriously. If you dropped your car without looking into all of the support parts that you might have to get to be able to handle it, then you might need adjustable upper control arms to get your rear wheels back to an acceptible camber setting.

You may also be able to get adjustable lower arms and pull the botton in as opposed to pushing the top further out.

Im trying to fit Wrx rotors on our cars. After some research and talking to ken over at kns, looks like all I need is the Wrx caliper bracket and I should be able to run any Wrx rotor. The 2.5i's have nearly all the same brake components other than the front rotors and I believe the brake lines may be a little different as well.

Are the wrx rotors thicker? If not all you need is the brackets

I do not believe so because Ive found a spec sheet that compared the models and everything was the same except the overall diameter of the rotor. They both use the same pads and caliper which is kind of odd but oh well, makes it easier for me

Thanks for the info I may use that idea. Instead of doing the 4/2 pot set up.

You are right about the flap RA is very good quality. I had them on my 07'i, 11'(sold 11' ones) and my wifes has them on her 05' leggy.
