Is there a way you can hide it under the door sil? Looks pretty crappy on the trim? Does it fix the whole shock thing for passengers too. I have many passengers complain when they get out of my car.

I want to see more of it, how many optional bars did you get?
Hi buddy! Yes i installed the cage last summer. It is the 7 points cage with 3 optional bars. 2 regular ones and 1 carbon fiber. I also had a harness bar added.

Aren't the cusco bars only for show? They aren't recommended for off road use? Correct me if I'm wrong though. Maybe this changed. I'm not sure. Back in the day they were show piece

There are a few other stories but this is the on I could find. The guy says the cage saved his life.

Not that I don't believe the cage made a difference, but my friends Sti flipped end over end twice and rolled 7-9 times from around 110mph. His car looked exactly like that with no cage installed.

i belive the cage is somewhat functional to an extent to save some people's lives.
it's just they dont meet regulations for roll cage safety for most events/rallys.

i think it's the reason being a lot of vital points of the cage is just a bolt in rather then a full weld?
im sure someone who does lots of sanction racing could chime in and explain more

but yeah I agree the cage isn't anywhere as good as a weld in which is why its not race legal. I do however think that most cage like add ons will prolly help

Exactly what I think. I am a weekend club racer, not a world class Time Attack driver going very fast speed. Our race tracks around here have an average speed of about 100kmh. Top speed in a stretch is about 175kmh.

My thought is better than having no bar at all.

Also, an interesting fact to know is that the full Cusco cage is about 60lbs. Made of Cromoly. To me it is a good way of having some protection while keeping the weight to a minimum.

Anyone have shots of how their V2 rep sits on the lower airdam?
I ordered a rep and it's super-short at that point, compared to the authentics.

Good luck getting it to fit. I ordered a rep as well and never ended up getting it to fit, it ended up breaking during the fitment process

WRX_02_227, I think he wants to know how he retained the honeycomb grill while removing the center Subaru badge and if it's the OEM grill or aftermarket

There is a grille I might not know of.


Then again the farther you back away with a camera the easier it is to hide small details.

What up guys, so to clear it all up. This is a stock bugeye grill with the center badge carefully cut out. I then took another broken grill and cut out the honeycomb on the right and left of the center badge. Trimmed the honeycomb to fit exactly where I cut the badge out and plasticwelded it in then filed and cleaned it up. Here's some close ups AutoPrue. If you look really closely you can see where the fusions are but I rarely have people within 6 inches of my grill

And yes was a fiberglass v2 replica I got for 30$ because it in 10 pieces, I spent close to 20 hours repairing it. It lasted a week then I hit a huge tire on our lovely Southern CA freeways and blew it into 100 pieces haha
