My 09 has been solid, so I can't think of anything, nor have I heard of anything causing problems on other 09s.

If it's been modified, you might want the mechanic to look at the installation of the parts and be sure that they are fitted correctly and that it wasn't a hack-job.

Dammit...I just ordered the small through ORS because they said that was the size I needed.

Huh... a few years ago, I picked up a couple of inno bike racks through chainlove.com for like $50 bucks a pop. Never heard of them before, but the price was too good to miss. I've been pleasantly surprised with them, especially considering how similar bike racks go for about $100+. I currently drive without my roof rails on, mostly because I'm not that huge a fan of the look. With the fairing though... I might reconsider.

btw, what size rack is that and where did you order it from?

Front dropped and stock in the rear (in this picture)
It's lowered all the way around now, just haven't taken pics yet.
It's lowered on H&R springs with wrx struts/shocks/mounts.
Very nice ride, not jarring at all! Best ride I have ever had lowered to date!
So a quick pic until I was it, alignment is done and sun!

I have same fairing on my OEM bars and had to get the Subaru mount pieces and trim to mount fairing to. Pretty easy to do.

Does anyone have a problem with the rubber parts that sit on the paint of the roof? I've always wondered if they left marks over time.

My fairing came with 4 clear "stickers" that go in between the roof and the feet of the stoppers. I do have marks from the crossbars though.

I've had mine on for well over a year now, and no marks yet... they do come with some foam tape though to cushion the contact with paint a bit more.

Is anyone interested in some silver 08+ sti mirrors? I bought from Ogden in February with good intentions to install, but could do with the extra cash right now... I also bought some connectors from a guy on 3gwrx for the extra wires needed for install. $200 plus shipping. I'll offer to fellow OBS owners before advertising to the masses!

There is a great DIY thread on 3GWRX.com for installing STI signal mirrors either by buying the entire mirror of an STI or just the covers and signals and adding them to your existing mirrors.

I followed the DIY and did power-fold at the same time and it was a snap and I'm, pretty much, an auto-wiring novice. Just be patient and take your time.

That's the STI silver and not the OBS silver?

They are the STI silver. Is the STI silver different than either of the sivers on the Silver OBS? I figured that it would at least match one.

Correctamundo.

I just installed a RalliTEK RSB (I bought the kit instead of piecing it together) - the wallet demands that I slow the purchases down a bit...but she'll have a Primitive skid plate by Christmas .

I'm thinking about those mirrors, but will I loose the heat? And I haven't really looked it up but isn't it just plug and go?

Here's just a pic update. Took some rolling shots this week. Check em out http://www.flickr.com/photos/elattrachephotography/.
