Default Talk about a lucky find!

So this afternoon, I was at the local junkyard looking for some parts for my T4R build....and I came across a wrecked 2016 STI. Something had fallen on it's roof and completely smashed the car from the doors up. Beautiful car, sad to see it in the condition it was in. The car had the motor, trans, diffs, axles, brakes, wheels, lights, and most of the interior bits gone....EXCEPT for the OEM STI full lip kit. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. OEM; front lip, sides skirts, and rear spats. The front lip has some scuffs on the underside, and a half inch crack, but nothing that can't be fixed and maybe repainted matte to match. I remember seeing this whole kit new for like $1000+. I quickly got started on taking them off, and at check out paid an unbelievable $30 for everything. LMAO! What a awesome find! Talk about luck!

Here is what they look like all cleaned up:

Love it! Patience will always lead you to a great outcome.

Had a similar experience when I bought a base jeep wrangler many years ago, my boss's friend let someone use his wrangler who ended up totaling it. He told me for $300 I could swap anything I'd like before insurance took it. Ended up with new American racing wheels, new top, some better body parts and stereo.

Nice~! You can source the well nuts and stainless screws/washers from McMaster Carr.

GL with the install. Both my STI and WRX run these factory STI pieces (my WRX runs the newer STI front lip design). Very cool, perfect fitment.

Reminds me of the time i used to have my acura integra. I was at the junkyard with my brother that day. We hit the lottery as the tow trunk came in with a fresh batch of wrecked cars. One of the car was a type r. We nearly stripped everything on that car, lol....

I'm glad you mentioned this, because the hardware I took off seems in good shape except for the "crush nuts" that are a one time use part. Do you know the part numbers from McMaster Carr by chance? Thanks!

You can buy a pack of “well nuts” on amazon. I bought a pack of 25 and they were the same as the ones that came with my lip I bought used.
M5-.8 .554 length 3/8” hole. If you need a link let me know.

Stainless screws you can use 10-32 x 3/4”
Washer #10 x 1” diameter

Yeah, this STI wasn't there long...it had a delivery date 2 days before I got to the yard. I'm sure an insider knew what it was and called some buddies of theirs or took the mechanical stuff out themselves. It sucked to see an STI in that condition....hope it wasn't a NASIOC member's car.

I was initially planning on installing it on my STI, but I want to do more performance-oriented upgrades right now instead of aesthetics.

Make me an offer (through PM please). I may list these on the for-sale section soon also.

Btw, I also have this piece I took off that's not in the pics:



I will take pics of that piece when I get home today.

Always cool to stumble on parts here and there.
How you price them is your choice.

Cool you saved some cool bits......(not that I can use them.....).
