Are you stationed in Africa with the army or something? Car looks nice, but I'd be leary of bringing it to Africa after the last time I went to Africa.

Nice STi! You might wanna check out some Rally Armors (or generic mudflaps) to keep that paint looking good.

yes, i am looking for mudflaps, the only problem is shipping them here. i was thinking of maybe making something here, if i am not able to import something. i am thinking of Red Sti written mud flaps will look good with the white job.

Just depends what part of Africa I suppose. I was in Molabo and I wouldn't own an STi in that town for fear of it getting shot to pieces by jumpy military tropps.

i just dont know why they duct taped the coolant overflow cap down and the power steering cap down, i was thinking maybe its because they are going to ship it, then i looked and nothing else is taped down. Just my 2 cents, beautiful car either way!!

Yep, Exactly my thoughts, i was also pondering where the intake went, am not engineer this is my first sports car. am thinking the answer lies on the bottom fog lamp which is missing on the left hand side of the car.

i was thinking its not there and i was going to buy some covers. currently looking for

- Mud Flaps (red preferred)
- Gauges ( what to have and what not to have)

That BPV has some sort of weird dump tube on it.... if it is routing back into the intake that's fine, I also see a foreign 3 port boost control solenoid I have never seen before (that usually requires a tune). That's an aftermarket radiator (the cap doesn't look to be screwed on correctly, the radiator resevoir expansion tank has an over pressureized cap on it (I'd buy a stock cap). Can you show a pic panned out to the left more so I can see the air intake? How many miles are on the car? The heat shield looks stock so I'm thinking stock turbo and downpipe?

I love the fact it's RHD, Aspen white, and the exterior hasn't been dicked with too much.

As for gauges Can't go wrong with an AEM UEGO wideband, Oil Pressure, Boost, and / or EGT

The interior I can't tell what that aftermarket electronic device on the dash is, but that's a fancy racing seat on the driver side. Oh, yeah.... you're definitely going to want to put a good set of tires on there

Couple more things taped down. Look to either side of the intercooler.

Regards to the taping of the things i am almost sure they do it for all the cars that are shipped and exported they duct tape caps and all those caps that are plastic so they dont magically come off i suppose.

super excited about this Sti. Hope all is well when it arrives

I think you should flush all of the fluids and make sure the previous owner was not a Mobil 1 5w30 enthusiast.
