The car breezed through it's MOT test, no advisories and flew the emissions test.

The geometry alignment has been done to factory STi settings, they suit me and I don't see the need to change them.

The centre heater / radio panel was scratched by myself when changing over the head unit, this was redone by Ryan to a better standard than the previous job.



Just the rear carbon spoiler to be relacquered and then I'll pick her up.

Well I picked the RA up yesterday and what a difference to the handling of the car.

It's now far more precise and direct, you can turn direction far quicker than before and the car goes exactly where you want it to go.

Before with the wishbone bush failing it was obviously effected, but the improvement with the STi Group N wishbone bushes and the STi rear suspension upgrades have made is night and day.

The car just goes where you want it, it's like a different car.

If you are considering the upgrades I've had fitted then I'd definitely recommend them 110%, they're not cheap but in my eyes they're well worth it.

Great work iam very attracted to do the same !


Does the handling improvment came from the wishbone bushes or does the rear Suspension upgrade so much difference to the car ? what is the improvment beside the bling bling and the new bushes over the Standard rear Suspension ?


I would do the Ra Heater control conversion with the black ***** to finish the look of the Center console.

Having driven the car very briefly before the wishbone bushes became a problem I would say that the STi lateral and trailing arms have made a big difference. The car is now steady when cornering and the back end tracks without feeling like it's going to step out, it gives you far more confidence in the corners and the steering is dynamic and precise.


I dare say the STi Group N wishbone bushes have helped as well but not as much the rear suspension upgrades have, I would definitely recommend the upgrade.


I have looked for the S204 heater control ***** but it doesn't look like you can buy them separately, although you can source stickers to cover the ***** but they are a compromise rather than a solution.

I have to agree that they would look far nicer than my present *****, I'll have to look into it when my wallet has recovered from the recent damage inflicted upon it.

That's quite true, as long as it's tastefully done and doesn't look like the car has been driven through Halfords at speed.

All dressed up and nowhere to go.

I cleaned the car ready for PCAD at Castle Combe which was on the 8th of April, unfortunately due to a last minute hitch I couldn't attend the show.

Some people pics from an early morning drive out to the Elan Valley, great roads and the car performed faultlessly.

That's a nice surprise.

I bought mine from Zunsport themselves, I had a discount code from them which made it the cheapest price online.
