The door panels in the STi have 3 square holes (in the 0-60-120 degrees) position. If your speakers have, say, 4 mounting holes, you'll need to use an adapter.

how much should i ask for almost new oem sti parts?

I installed Infinity Reference 6000cs on the fronts. Mounting depth 2 1/16". Without using 1/2" spacers, they won't fit. The metal to window depth is about 1.75" only. In other words no speakers will fit unless you use spacers. I made mine, but check EastCoastScooby at the NASIOC car audio forum.

Correct. Lowering the window will touch the speakers a little bit. I did have to use the spacer provided with my Alpines.
