Different front driving lights
Different suspension
Different ECU mapping.

Oh and it is covered by a Subaru warranty.. The STI "grey imports" are not covered by a subaru factory warranty

Thumbs down

I've just spoken with the OZ distributor in Vancouver. Had told me in the spring that the Prodrive P1 wheel would be available this summer. Now he's saying maybe September.

OZ have stopped making the SuperTurisimo and will be using the P1 as it's replacement. I'm waiting for these wheels and will post when I know they're coming.

No, Kyle.
The P1 was designed with the UK roads in mind when the suspension was calibrated and some of the areo extras. Prodrive did most of the work on it-hence P1-prodrive 1-
It is more then just bigger wheels and some fancy name plate-
I am not knocking the RB5, Just saying that the P1 has a lot more development work done to it.

I wonder how it would handle here? HMMMMMMM

Richard, have u experienced any roads like the b-roads in the UK-I have never been there but hear that some are beyond challenging.

A P1 is a detuned STI5.

No differnetial control knob.

No water spray.

Addition of ABS.

No twin pot rear brakes! (Makes the UK owners feel really cheated!)

New front spoiler and lights.

You do get a warrantee
