Default Ohlins DFV Coilovers for MY 05-07 STI

I had ordered a set of the Ohlins DFV coilovers through Strano Parts several weeks ago. Over through course of oh say three weeks a lot of mix ups occurred.

First, they sent the kit with no spring perches. I called and they said they'd ship some to me. Several days go by and I get the package on my door. I'm pumped! I open the package and turns out they sent camber plates instead. So now I'm getting a little frustrated. I call Sam and Ohlins and explain the mix up. Ohlins say they'll have more out to me and to just ship back the camber plates. After several more days of waiting, the perches finally arrive. I put everything together and begin installing them on the car. To my amazement the front camber bolt holes are 10 mm too far apart. WTF?! Apparently Ohlins had shipped DFV's for an 05+ STI (mine is an 05 WRX). Now I'm thinking, how the hell does a reputable company like Ohlins screw up so much? So I'm on the phone again with Ohlins and Sam. Sam let me know he's on it and he'd take care of it. After about two days I get a call back from Sam. He tells me the DFV set I have is "the last set available" and Ohlins is sending out a brand new set of their Flag Series for the same price as what I paid for the DFV's!

Thanks Sam. You the Man!

If you are looking for a hell of a deal on this 05+ STI Ohlins DFV coilover. Drop him a line. He'll get you a killer deal. Last set available!

I took a big bullet for Paul here. Part of the deal in fixing the mess with Ohlins is that I had to agree to sell the DFV's and not send them back. As such, I'm sitting on these things, out the money until they are out of my shop (and I want them out of my shop).

Paul never drove on them. They have zero miles on them.

I want them gone, and fast. $3399 shipped. I can't give them away, someone will want them because it's a good deal at that price.... so please don't low-ball me, it's more than fair for the dampers you are getting.

bumping..... This is the last set Ohlins USA had... Selling for over $200 off what you'd have found elsewhere.

PLUS: I have these ready to go, and I'm picking up the shipping too (which is a good $50 at least), so figure more than $250 off the normal price.

These won't fit your WRX. Well, at least the fronts won't fit unless you have an '05-'07 STi front knuckle and hub swap. Rears will bolt up, though.

Did you ever sell them? I was hoping for a review of some sort.
