Looks fantastic, how hard was the install? A simpler home garage job or?


Yup, just put the car on the hoist (much easier than lying on the ground) the hardest part was getting the old wing things off the sides, once those self locking screws clog up with dirt the are a PAIN to get out!

But other than that its simply a matter of lining it up and using the self tapers where it sags a little....

20min job...

Mine arrived today, and i have one of the STI metal badges to put on too. Got it installed then scratched it getting out of the drive. :angry2:

Have to change my approach to get out but it can be done. :) Looks great, when the weather clears ill put some pics up.

Yeah definately, hard to visualise on your car until you put it on, but as said before, cant beat it for the price. And i think it was what the 3.0 bumpers were missing, just caps the car off. Mine is standard externally other than this and it changes the whole look of the car. :)

Just do it!!!
