Are you having any issues with your V-Limited Lip scraping the ground? I had a few issues with my 2007 STI, and am wondering if the lip on the '08 isnt as low as the previous generation.....

Speaking of which...from whom and for how much did you get the V-Lip?

Have scraped the rubber protector a few times on steepish ramps, but i try to be careful to cross things at an angle. Dunno how it will fare if/when i get the JDM pink springs, i'll lose another 15mm
Edit, found the measurements from earlier posts:
With my front lip the spacing to ground is just 15cm on stock springs (without lip is 19cm), measured at the front corners. Not sure if that is higher/lower than the prior years?

Awesome pics. Do you have anymore pics of the back of the car with the smoke tail light covers? I'm on the fence on whether to get red or smoke and have seen enough WRB cars with the red overlays. But yours is the only one I can think of that has the smoke overlays.

Default Re: S'poreSTI Redux - 08 WRB/Gold. STI Strutbrace installed.

Installed the Strutbrace, springs will have to wait a while...
Install was easy, the only issue being it's designed for JDM cars, so the bend to clear the brake booster and the protective tape is on the wrong side. Luckily it still clears the fluid cap on the right, but its tight, ~1-2mm. I added some clear tape there and at the wiper electrics cable to prevent chafing

A before & after montage
