Default Re: S'poreSTI Redux - 08 WRB/Gold. SPT Catback for the Rumble!!!

After what seemed like forever saving up my Chase card Subaru $$$'s i finally sprang for the SPT Catback today

After the first testdrive of a dealer car with this back in Dec09 i just loved the sound it made, just a nice increase in the rumble without getting too loud or obnoxious. With my own finally on the car its just awesome, loving it!!!

Default Re: S'poreSTI Redux - 08 WRB/Gold. R205 Rear Underspoiler

Normally when i travel i never check a bag, but on this trip back from japan i had no choice, this one was ~ 5 feet long...


It was worth the wait in SFO as i saved a bunch of shipping $$$s to get my R205 rear underspoiler back home. Only cost me 3 bux for a roll of "Fragile, don't hurt me" tape to seal up the box

Install was easy, just remove the rear bumper as others have described, then attach the supplied brackets. LH fitted fine, RH needed some dremel work to get it to fit OK to the USDM bumper beam support.

One thing i found with the bumper off, there was significant rubbing of the bumper on two areas of the body highlighted below

Its almost as if a protective piece was missing or something, after wiping the rubbing was down to the metal, really not good.

I cleaned up & painted the areas, and attached some thin foam material to the bumper to avoid further damage after re-install...

Some pics after install, and after giving the car a wash...
The spoiler looks really good back there

Is it R205 under spoiler (no STI logo) or STI under spoiler (STI logo)?

It has a little STI sticker/logo in the top center, so i guess its the STI version, not a true R205 spoiler. I can live with that
With that logo i'm now up to 18 STI logos on the exterior of the car...

for each sti logo you get 5bhp

how easy was it to take off the bumper? 10 mins like the front?
