i know the 08+WRX perrin strut tower brace fits our cars (caltech87 has it on his car)...so i'd imagine other brands do as well.

I was told many times, even on this forum, that theirs only one type of STB that fits our cars. Everyone says that the WRX ones specifically don't fit regular imprezas. Am I wrong?
Anyone know if they make a CAI for our cars yet lol

Damn... just bought this a week ago and it was $40 less with prime! Mine was actually sold by Amazon though.

I second this notion. 19mm RSB before the strut brace.

You need the amber reflectors to be legal. I've seen people delete them, but I doubt they'd pass inspection.

Here's TRSAndrew's retrofit thread;

His are the most blacked out I've seen, he even painted the turn signal reflector bowls.

Wonder if the '15 WRX headlights fit in our cars - probably not, but they look fairly similar when looking at pics.

Due to some communication problems I ended up with an extra Mini D2S Retrofit Kit (specs below) at my expense. Ive been told I can return the extra kit at no cost to myself, even though it came in one box...? Anyhow, I thought Id offer the extra here keeping it local before posting on the SCIC/FS Forum or actually returning it.

If youre interested I can offer them at an EXTREMELY reasonable price shipped (need zip), or even better, of course, picked up (San Diego). Send me a PM with zip code and I can get the total cost. Even if youre simply interested in a quote...

Projectors : D2S 3.0
Ballasts: D2S Morimoto 3Five DSP
Bulbs: D2S 3Five 5000k
Shrouds: Apollo 3.0
Wire Harness: HD Relay: 9006
Sealant: Butyl Rubber Glue
High Beam Splitter

Yeah, man. I'm gonna test out the reception in a poor signal area tomorrow morning.

USAFAndrei and tenaciousZ might be interested in that extra kit you got. Keep us updated with your install!!
