Yeah, turn signal mirrors is one of the nice details my TDI had that I wish the Impreza had. Ambient lighting is the other, but I know I could add that without spending too much money. I'll bet the turn signal mirrors would be pretty costly, though.

Here is my Perrin upper strut bar, I would have preferred black but I picked this up for $75 bucks on Craigslist.

And this is on your 2012+? Do you have a model/part number for that perrin bar, I'd really like to search one down as well. Thanks!

Looks nice. I like the orange. What do they sell for new? Do you feel any difference when cornering?

I think off the perrin website they are around $200. I definitely feel the car is more planted in the turns with less body roll. I suggest checking your local classified ads to pick up a used one. I'll be doing the still rear sway bar soon

Yeah it is on my 2012 Sport. This was off an 09 wrx. If you go to the perrin website it will show you the part number. I am pretty sure the upper strut bar is the same for 08-current wrx/sti's.

I like how it tucks up under the cowl instead of going straight across.

Isn't that the same one that will fit the 03-07 models as well? It seems they are all generally shared between platforms with respect to dimension...

On the contrary...

Steering response is quickened. Transitioning is better. Better road feel through the wheel. I love it. Its subtle.. but car junkies like myself, and most of us here, would recognize the difference.

my mistake, I mixed up the fxn of the strut tower brace with a front sway bar. Duh. Cheers to you for finding more cross compatibility!

I will most likely give t to my father with a sport premium. If he changes his mind I will pm you tho!

  • Useful tools (but not necessary): body clip removal pliers, trim pry tools, Phillips off-set screwdriver (I didn't have one so I used vise grip pliers and a short bit. There wasn't enough room to use a ratchet).
  • To removal the clips that have a Phillips head, hold the outer portion while you're unscrewing it. It's only approx. 1/4 turn to remove it.
  • To reinstall the clips, separate them into 2 pieces and insert the outer portion of the clip first and make sure the body sections are secured. Finally, insert the inner portion of the clip.
  • If you're not removing your wheels, install the hardware for the inner most portion of mud flap before you install it on the vehicle, but leave a little slack for adjustments. There's very little space to fit your tool to tighten it in the wheel well.

And of course, here are some pictures:







I think I've seen you on the road before, there aren't that many SWP Imprezas in Vancouver.
