  1. And now fitted Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. Thought I’d start a little thread off to chart what I hope to be many, many years of happy ownership of this car. I sourced it through Club Japan Imports; the chap who runs it is called Ryan and I can highly recommend him. I committed to buy the car on 15 May 2018 and it left Japan on the Hoegh Trapper on 31 May 2018. What seemed like a round the world cruise finally ended on 23 July when the ship docked at Port of Tyne. 12 hours later, the car had cleared customs and at 0755 on 27 July I proudly collected it. A quick 30 minute drive to my usual servicing garage in Hexham followed, and then the work began. Underseal, fog light into rear cluster, service, cv boots changed, drop links changed, exhaust welded, new wiper blades and finally 4 new uniroyal rain sport 3’s. Off for an MOT she went, clean pass :) Back home she came on 2 August and registration docs sent to DVLA, which is where I am sat waiting now. A good clean and inspection had turned up 4 deep scratches that will be getting smart repaired and little else. Not bad for a grade 3.5! Interior is immaculate. Project red has started too...red is going to be my accent colour everywhere [emoji23]. Mods identified so far are upgraded intercooler, rear strut brace (front was standard on the a-line), alloy radiator, massive rear view mirror and genuine STI spoiler (a-line had duck tail spoiler as OEM).

    Is there anyone else out there?

    There's one near us - saw it again the other day and sounded great. The mrs fancies one to replace her lease car now in 2 years time

  6. Ordered a few nice bits n bobs for the car in the last 24 hours: Customised gel overlays for the front and rear emblem badges Pair of stiffies for the rear spoiler Rattle can of candy apple red paint Two more red hawkeye silhouette decals Also booked in to get the STI Genome exhaust fitted on 2nd Jan and have some smaller red mudflaps to fit 😎

    2007 STI Limited

    Is that sat on teins?
  13. Does anybody know what the performance figures are for these JDM 2003-05 fozzies please? Been searching on my phone tonight without joy. Looks like a cheaper alternative to an STI import, but is it considerably slower? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
