    Looks like the same picture you used to show them on the car originally Dave.. Go out and take a new picture right now from dead side on.. I don't believe they are still that clean

    They arent that clean at all, but i was under the car and ran my finger on the inner side of the front rim and the brake dust came straight off, the few coats of polish and wax i put on before fitting seems to be working!! ill go take a pic when it stops the torrential rain.

    Now robbie, rain seems to be cleaning the car for me. But paul555ra or goldenjohn will agree when i say i can be a bit pedantic when it comes to cleaning the car so it always is in fairly good shape.

    Started the old silver bullet for the first time in over a month today and it started no problem and sounds perfect. Then took off the back bumper and headlights. Its coming apart bit by bit.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Broke it! Not too bad really just holed the exhaust header. Don't know how that happened. Pop,pop,Bang,BANG! May as well put on equal length header now for that Subie burble and might upgrade the turbo as i'm at it. Anyone have what i need for the '97 jdm STi

    equal length headers will get rid of your burble. you will need new up pipe and turbo if you want to switch to them and probably oil sump too and new downpipe, a lot of work!

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Depending on the style of header thats currently on it. Shouldnt need to change oil sump, turbo or downpipe, just header and possibly uppipe. I was looking at changing mine last week, bought the unequal length with uppipe only to do some research and find mine is better left as is. If yours bolts to the uppipe, its just the header, but if its a header and uppipe in one piece, you will need to get both. Which i have as it goes. You will have to remove the downpipe to get acess to bolts for uppipe if your changing it tho.
