Both STi and Prodrive have their own sites, but the STi site is all in Japanese and the Prodrive site is very expensive!

I would recommend, going to the Links page and checking out some sites such as SPD USA, Teague's Auto, Challenger Deep, or even www.subaruparts.com

Hope this helps!

You know how Mugen is to Honda? STi is to the Impreza, only more so. STi is a seperate company but they work hand in hand to produce STi tuned models available through Subaru. They also make aftermarket parts which are of the highest quality (and highest price)

Prodrive is a British F1 company that handles the SWRT. Very good stuff too. They tune Imprezas as well for public consumption in the form of the Impreza P1 and other cars we can't get. Also pricey.

CUSCO is a Japanese company that makes suspension parts for several Japanese cars. However, they deal mostly with Imprezas. CUSCO is to Subaru as HKS is to Nissan maybe? I think that's a decent comparison. CUSCO is not cheap but it's definitely more affordable than STi, and at no loss of quality.

Whiteline is another company you may want to know. They're an Australian company which makes products for Impreza, Legacy, and other cars' handling. Eh, kind of like an AEM-style share in the market. Good at what they do. Very affordable stuff too, which is why it's so popular.

In terms of North American companies who actually MAKE products for the Sube instead of sell them...I'd definitely say Cobb Tuning is tops, lots of personal parts for the Impreza and Trey's a smart guy. After them comes JC Sports with their turbo kits, but they have had some, uh, issues with customer service. Too bad they didn't hire me when they had the chance.

Guys like Rallispec, ISR, TRi Tuning, and Teague's Auto all resell Impreza parts, do installations, and are involved in the Subaru aftermarket.

Have a Nice Day?

Actually, JUN makes a lot of components for the Impreza, just not the one we get here. As for the upcoming turbo Impreza that were slated to get, i just hope JUN doesnt forget the little people(aka the U.S.) when the U.S. model drops.

Cheers,
Darril
