My bumper is already cracked and the lip kind of just holds it together. Haha. It gets scraped on the driveway pretty much every time.

hey xluben. Just wondering how much did you sell your SPT exhaust for? I'm thinking about selling mine and get something a bit louder like the Q300 or the GReddy.

I have purchased them as cheap as $250-300 and I've sold them for as much as $450-500. It all depends on how long you want to wait. If you list it at $500 you'll probably get little to no interest for months. It just depends on what people want. Definitely favor a local sale if you can. The long midpipe will make the SPT cost $100+ to ship.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll just keep it if it's that cheap to resell lol. Just wanted something with a bit more volume in the summer.

Quick question regarding the front lip, did you need to drill any holes into the bumper for the lip install or did you just use the existing holes?

Yeah, not worth a lot like some people seem to think.

Yes, I drilled holes. I used the OEM holes to partially mount it, and then used clamps to further hold it in place. Then I drilled the holes. Really not much too it, but I can understand the apprehension if it's one of the first things you've done to the car.

I have no problem with the installation, I did it on my old Impreza but it's just that I got to drill into my brand new bumper. If I got to do it, I will do it, just wanted to see if I had to drill.

Yeah, you'll have to drill. Not much other choice. It's just a few small holes. If you take the lip off, you'd never even know.

I said I'd let Nuke comment on that, but it was hard and it was fast.

Did you buy the flapatax flaps as a set or fronts only?

I have a full set, but I normally only use the fronts. I'm not really a fan of the mudflap look.

Yeah me too, I dont like how it looks in the rear at all so I was thinking to not get any flaps but after my 600 miles road trip, I had a chip on my sideskirt and now I see that you and a few others run on fronts only, it made me think, the fronts itself can pull it off.

Mine are moved in close to an inch so they really don't do all that much, but it still helps a little.

Thanks! I like the fitment a lot! We all thought I would rub for sure but so far, so good. Had my winter wheels in the back on the way home and didn't notice any rubbing. I'll try to get daytime photos today but I am kind of busy so we'll see if it happens.

Let me know how you like those tires. They got good prices on onlinetires and been looking at those for my summer set. The summers on the OEM ones sucks haha.

Will do. So far they are way sharper on turn in than my snows. Duh! Haha. I didn't push them because it's still pretty cold at night. Probably could have waited on install but I was antsy.

I would also be aware that for the last couple years they always sold out by mid spring and then it was months before more came in. I would have run them last year but everyone was already sold out by the time I got my wheels.
