Default +254's Over the top Daily JDM Hatch.

So after two years owning a Forester sti, I thought it was time to try my hand at the Impreza STI. I really wanted the Hawkeye version at first but after trying out the '08 sti the balance between comfort and performance won me over.



The car its self is a JDM '08 Impreza STI, so it has the 2ltr twin scroll engine.

First mod was the wheels. I had these O.Z. Ultraleggera 18 x 9 lying around so I decided to respray them in gloss black and throw them on the car..

Completely loved them...

Improving the somewhat soft handling characteristics of the GRB was my next priority so I opted for Whiteline Front / rear Sway Bars, links and top Mounts and Cusco Power Braces.

One of my favourite mods so far. It wasn't cheap and it took a while to get it from Japan but it was definitely worth it. Also with all the dust here it keeps the intake pretty clean.

Thanks,. There are quite a few now, most performance cars here are JDM imports, so there are plenty of STI's and evo's.
