Default Prodrive - good stuff?

Hey guys I'll be looking at a 2003 WRX today. The original owner (this guy is the 2nd) worked for Prodrive, hence there's lots of part on the car. I took a look at their site and they seem like a good company but does anyone have first hand experience with them? Here's what the car has:

-Optima Yellow Top Battery (New)
-Prodrive Shift Knob
-Prodrive Grille
-Prodrive Headlights
-Prodrive 4-Pot Brake Kit
-Prodrive PFF-7 Rims in Bright Flitter (Silver)
-Prodrive Lowering Springs
-Prodrive Stage 3 which includes:
- Uppipe (catless)
- Downpipe w/free catalytic converter
- Midpipe
- Oval Tip Exhaust
- Silicone Intercooler Y-pipe
- ECU Upgrade

Thanks!

You've been on the forum for quite a while, and you haven't heard of Prodrive?

Anyways, I'll spare you the crap... Yes...Prodrive is awesome. They are heavily involved in the WRC cars. I would buy their stuff any day.

Prodrive always does heavy, extensive R&D into their products. They have worked with Subaru in the past to make actual Prodrive Subys. P1's. Prodrive is awsome stuff. Good Luck!

Good luck man, looks like a nice ride. Having a hookup at Prodrive would be sweet, too

If you get the car, get rid of those Prodrive stickers on the doors...far too obnoxious, and the driver's side sticker is tilted

Rockin the pff7's. IMO I would take off the prodrive stickers too & paint the sideskirts to match the car. Good luck with your decision.

Prodrive : Subaru = Mugen : Honda

Prodrive puts together the WRC Imprezas.

I agree about the removal of the side banners. And install a WRX rear spoiler too.

Don't worry, Prodrive isn't stuff that you find in PepBoys. It's a lot better than APC stuff
