Pick it up from my local dealers and installed it today
i thought the one on SGP was too expensive so i decided to check for the unpainted version at my local dealers, generaly they are 3 time the price since im in canada (where a sport grille cost 495 and a SPT catback 1300$)

turn out that they add lots of different number, and end up ordering a factory matched painted WRblue STI strip with rear emblem INCLUDED, everything already assembled... and for 160$ i could believe it !

so here's it is!

Before/after





Before/after





WRB Factory painted STi rear strip parts number





and this badboy is getting painted next week !

i love the way the emblem is not part of the strip like the chrome cousin which is build in the strip

also on a side note... i found a little pinhead of rust behind the strip around where the emblem is... i think it will be a good thing to removed it once a year to fix it up, its hidden anyway !

i thought the chrome strips didnt come factory painted anymore? or was that just the spoilers?
SGP claim so... and they also claim that the emblem dont come with it... my local dealer was having all the part number all including the rear emblem

So we can order these factory painted from our local dealerships? If so, I gotta do this!
in canada yes and the emblem was included, i guess it should be the same for the US just ask them

I used Duplicolor smoke chrome finish on my 09 sedan.

It came out ok but it still needs more work.
