Hey all, I donít know if you could help me out but Iím planning on getting an 08 STI at 123k miles, was wondering if you could tell me any problems to look for around that year and miles, or any questions to ask the dealer, Thanks for the help all!

Well, ya never know if it was previously nodded and beat on then returned to stock. Pretty common practice. Just have a fund available I just had shortblock replaced with forged pistons in my 09 and its not cheap...

Cheach/Anyone - what bumper is this? Looking to upgrade my '09 exhaust to dual-tip and need a new rear bumper anyway. Would prefer to get one that's made for dual-tip rather than cutting an OEM one up.

Most likely it is the premium oem. You're gonna have to cut it up, sir. Lol. I'm dreading it too but it's the only way afaik.

Yeah its just my stock bumper, its the most cost effective way and dont have to worry about another bumper not fitting right. You can get exhaust finishers too to cover up the cuts and make it look cleaner but you dont really notice it. I recently just put a quad exhaust on and it fits nicely

Duuude.

I ordered some H11 Osram nightbreaker headlamps and they don't fit! The plug looks like it fits but the bracket to secure them in the headlight housing is a no go.

What are you guys using for headlight bulbs? My sylvanias seem really dull...
