As promised, a few more parts which might be of some interest (including some from my old bugeye subie):

VF42 turbo (factory equipment on the S203 / S204 / RA-R)

This is the twinscroll turbo that came fitted from the factory on the limited edition S203, S204 and RA-R models. Great street turbo capable of close to 400hp, but no longer in use after I switched to an SC42 from Scoobyclinic.



Carbon fibre front fenders from Poland

I didn't want the Seibon carbon front fenders as they were 10mm wider and not OE style, so had to source for these from an obscure rally prep shop in Poland (it seems the East Europeans make almost anything you could wish for in carbon). Approximately 0.7kg lighter per fender after painting.



Process carbon fibre front and rear doors from Japan

Admittedly carbon doors arenít all that rare. Got these for weight savings, and like the roof and fenders, I had them painted body colour except for the inner trim which was left unpainted. Approximately 7-10kg lighter per door.



WRX STI Limited front lip and rear spoiler extension

These body kits originally appeared on the WRX STI Limited bugeye model which was released in May 2002. The front lip came in 2 pieces and featured two slits on each side for brake cooling (apparently), while the rear spoiler extension was designed to slightly raise the original fishtail spoiler.

Also notice the pink "I" badging in the front, back in the good old days when Subaru still made and sold these...





Prodrive steering by Sparco

Ordered this from Prodrive Japan back in the early 2000s for my bugeye.

Well, I know for a fact that nobody has a shift knob exactly like this.. Also the center console and radio trim is somewhat rare (1069 of 2000).

Huh, that's genuinely the first time I've seen one of those shift knobs in a Subaru before. Where the heck did you even find it?

Only ever seen that shift knob in an Audi. Sweet find.

How are you liking those RA-R seats? When I first wanted them, my wife insisted I only buy the driver side, saying she preferred the comfort of the stock seat (obviously the real reason was she just didn't want me spending $$...). I secretly bought a pair but only installed the driver side at first to appease her. Then she tried it and realised it was more comfortable than stock, less bouncy and holds you in place very nicely. I also credit those seats with my staying in shape over the past 9 years, they would let you know if you so much as gained a pound...
We seem to be fans of OEM performance goodness indeed. So far I'm enjoying it. Much more comfortable than my Esquelleto bucket seat. And yes, the factory seats seem to spring board you, making the car feel like it has harsh suspension. But once in a bucket, the ride is so much better.

One of the last big changes to my car remaining is suspension. It's still sitting on all the OEM bits, besides swapping out the front endlinks with some kartboy aluminum ones since the OEM ones were blown out. S203/S204/RA-R springs which have the highest factory spring rates from Subaru and a 15mm drop. STi trailing arms and then GrpN rear diff mount. Not in the photo, GrpN F&R top hats and Feel's fixed perched struts. I didnt want to deal with STi pink struts since they'd have to be pulled apartand re-greased.

2003 STi Spec C aluminum trunk I took the risk of buying from a bloke in Great Britain.. As you can see from the corner on the right side, his packing job and UPS's handling of the package left something to be desired. I'm still deciding whether spending probably another 1000 on fixing and painting, or just ordering a RA-R trunk from Japan is worth it. I think if I repaired it, the S202 wing would go on it. A RA-R trunk would be perfect for the S203 wing, like another member in this thread has done.

Bummer on the trunk lid, any shop should be able to fix that. Worst case just make a template of the holes and buy another one to re-drill and swap the badges over.

Finding another aluminum trunk will definitely be difficult. I have an aspen white one similar but it has many holes for an sti wing, weight reduction, right?

Any shop willing to spend the time on it will fix it, i fixed my wrecked aluminum hood myself and it maybe took an afternoon to do it was far worse than yours. And i have a 22B trunk and spoiler with the same damage, its almost impossible to not bend the corners unless its shipped on a padded pallet. Worst case, you should be able to track one of those down in japan id imagine its easier than dealing with people in europe. Im willing to bet theres a few still available new, id be weary using japan parts even though they list it on the site, they have shipped steel trunks to people in place of that one.

Yeah I'm probably just going to throw my S202 optional wing on it and call it a track setup to keep on the shelf. I'm trading my OEM big winged trunk for a wingless this weekend. I'll use that one for mounting my S203 wing on once its painted.

In regards to ordering an aluminum trunk. I've talked with rallispec.com over the phone. They can still get 2003-2007 trunks. Wrx spoiler holes, big wing mount holes, and the wingless RA-R trunk. They inspect once in country and repackage to prevent any damage. That's who I'll buy from if I ever do.

You sir have a pretty rare trunk there. Spec C RA trunk. If you were in CA I would find some way of buying that from you.

You can also get these trunks brand new direct from Subaru Japan, I got mine through Japanparts.com, usually professionally packaged as well. You can specify what type of spoiler and they will come drilled accordingly from the factory.
