They haven't convinced you?

Looks really good on the car, needs a little work to get lined up and straight as the holes don't line up as they would on the 2.5/GT. Well worth it though considering the limited options for pre-facelift 3.0 owners. Beats the hell out of $800 on a genuine one! Also, the gaps Rob mentioned due to the 'higher' section on the bottom of the bar of the 2.5/GT really arent visible unless you are on your hands and knees or standing 20m away looking front-on.

Just placed my order, hopefully will get the grill around the same time as well!

Also, just bought from a company on E-bay that make the small STI stickers they have on the front of the genuine STI lips....

Just to confuse some more people....

hehe....

So how much work was involved in fitting it Statts???

IN THE PIPELINE Diffuser, Outback Bonnet... & Supercharger maybe???? And the list goes on....

Not too much actually. I grabbed a handfully of new push clips Dom Subaru as then go a bit brittle over time and won't survive a re-install. Remove the factory air deflector things. I used factory push clips where they lined up, which is the centre an most rearward ones. After that I used self-tappers at the back corners to ensure they lined up as this is where misalignment will be most evident. Then I just went through the centre section putting in self-tappers ensuring everything was even. From memory I required 4 on either side of centre to get rid of sags.

If you end up with one side a bit droopy like I did, don't fret, leave the car in the sun for a few hours or at worst case put a little prop under the droopy side an leave in the sun and all will be fixed.

Now..... Abou these stickers.... Got a link? :)

You think normal pinapple push clips will work?

If you have a dealer nearby, I'd get the genuine items, they're a lot stronger and where they need to go is a pretty integral part of the mounting. They cost about $3 each from Subaru.

Thanks for the badge link, will grab one now.

Also, which grille are you getting for a Pre-facelift 3.0R-B

Corazon is the big empty one that Tangcla has. That looks like a genuine Subaru flyscreen mesh one.

My lip just arrived this morning via courier (Cheers Rob!)

Deciding whether to fit it up this arvo or wait for the grill and STI sticker to arrive....
