The prodrive style kit is effectively the lights, rear spoiler (and possibly a different front bumper - not sure on that).
Mark
The Prodrive style STi's came with the same headlights that are fitted to a standard STi.
The front bumper is in fact different to a std STi as it has the wraparound blanking plates in place of the foglamps

I had decided not to paint the inside of the headlights, but I've changed my mind.

Wheres that black barbaque paint gone?

I'm gonna do that this weekend. Could you give me some info on how you did it?

instead of sticking the lights in the oven i used a hot air gun to seperate the unit, its a bit fiddly and sticky/messy but not too hard.

i decided to leave the orange bulb cover, cos i simply refuse to pay stupid money for silvatec bulbs and the like

not really affected the "brightness" much and i havent had any problems yet with people not seeing the indicators, so they must be ok

That sounds good! I guess something like a hairdryer wouldn't be hot enough, so it will have to be the oven way.

Also, how did you paint your wheels? What paint did you use?

Thanks for your help.

the wheels were in good nick so i just gave them a light bead blasting at work then used grey primer and mat black followed by lacquer, several coats of each did the trick

Palmo, very nice. Love the lights, looking for some myself. Is that a DR motorsport splitter?

Thanks for the comments. Yes it is a DR Motorsport Splitter, although I'm not sure they do these anymore - details have certainly been removed from their website.

Wheel is original to the car (MY02) and has done approx 40k miles. Tyres were all changed approx. 3-4k miles ago. That shot was taken after a long day cleaning a few weeks ago - the tyre has Meguairs Tyre Gel on it which is first class IMO.
