Cheers man. Can't wait to get them fitted.
I have a complete set of 2005 STI Brembo's with lines and back plates I've been meaning to shift if you're interested
Hearing mixed results about swapping the calipers out. Some say it's an improvement but then as the Spec B comes with 316mm discs, some standard discs and uprated pads are just as good.
I'll see how I get on with the yellowstuffs I've ordered
316mm discs are a good size. You'll see a marked improvement with good pads
Pleased to say that as of 15th June all being well I shall be the proud owner of a 2005 Subaru Impreza STI Spec C Type RA
White, 73K, completely original with manuals etc.
Stuff I've already bought:-
18" Black Speedline wheels
CAE Racing Ultra Shifter
Red Recaro SPGs
Black Sabelt harness (won't be using these day to day)
Rally Armour mudflaps
Perrin wing stiffies X2
Rear window vents
Has the nasty sticky dash so going to replace it with S204 dash (think that doesn't go sticky)
Think that's everything so far. Have arranged for the car to go into a local car engineering firm towards the end of June to have the underneath stripped, powerder coated and rebuilt.
Think the engine and box are OK but will leave these till last.
Nice work, glad to hear it's nearly in your hands.
I think white is the only colour I've seen a spec C in!
It'll be a blobeye on 05 won't it? Twin scroll?
Post plenty of pics when you get it!
Could be a Hawkeye on a 05 beings its a JDM model
I hope so Lee because a Hawk STi with the EJ207 is just <3 <3 <3
I agree Andrew they are very much an acquired taste, but they do look very good Plus have the benefit of having the 2.0 engine.
I know someone in work with a blue spec C hawkeye, i think its on an 08 plate but that's not a true representation of its age. I believe it was one of only a couple of blue ones as it was originally imported to be a spare shell for a rally car but ended up never being needed so was sold on to the guy i know.
Yes, it's a white hawk.
Unfortunately, its bedroom isn't finished. I had builders refurbing my garage but they cried off at the start of the lockdown. Annoying as there seems to be load of building work going on!
I have other garages available to use so won't have to sit on the driveway.
Pic from the seller
There was a few brought in pretty much direct from Subaru Japan. They were to be converted but it never happened. There was a 10 plate Spec C on ebay for a while at the start of the year.
After a long wait, finally got my my Forster
2007 Manual Cross sport S Edition
Well that's a model I haven't heard of before.
Looks nice, what's the spec/details of that model?
It's a jap import, 2.0l turbo, think it's the same as what comes in the WRX? Has sti front splitter, seats, speedometer, rear spoiler, and slightly stiffer suspension, it's about 240 bhp out of the factory
I was going to say, that looks very STi-esque.
I don't think the Subarus need much fettling on the outside but a new set of wheels would really complete the car.
Nice, I eyed the Cross Sport before getting the Legacy. Right colour and gearbox, niceeee
Been doing a bit of resto work
Impressive difference on those B Pillar trims!
