Did some front end work with my mechanic the other day. Still not a lot of suspension and drivetrain mods as it’s my daily driver and would have to give it up for about 2 weeks!

We got here;

Oswald performance lightweight aluminium bumper beam & tow hook.
Hella Supertone Horns in Silver
HT Autos Limited Lip (trying this one out before the carbon version)
Sypder DRL Headlights – looks so much better with these on
Yellow foglight overlays
Acrylic Black Front licence plate with Silver STI logo
S204 Center Grille Mod in Red







The beam weighs so much less than the original beam, taking some good weight off the front.*

Cool stuff! Do the headlights pass inspections in Switzerland? I'm guessing i'd never get aftermarket lights through inspections here.

How was the fitment of the HT auto's lip?

Front crash bar looks neat (i never did change mine out of fear it wouldn't provide nearly enough impact resistance as the stock bar. Having lightly rear-ended someone once i can assure you the stock bar can take a beating.)

Thanks! No idea about passing inspections, we'll find out in 2 years time. Worst case I just put the stock headlights back on for that.

HT Auto's lip fit surprisingly well, I used the full screw kit to put it on. Regarding the crash bar, they did put it through some hefty tests and it held up pretty well!

Took the car for a mini-detail/wash!
