Rear spoiler will fit the 98My cars fine, as it is essentially the same spoiler which was an expensive Prodrive option in previous years. I did hear a rumour that they might be a bit cheaper now (new cars have them as standard), so it might be worth checking for any good deals.

The new headlights should fit OK, but they will be expensive, and you will need the new bulbs as well. You are probably looking at somewhere around the 400 mark for everything including VAT and fitting.

From what I have heard, they are an improvement, but not that much. You would be better advised to fit a driving lamp conversion for half the money, and fit a set of the PIAA super white bulbs in your existing lamp enclosures.

The new headlights are 135 pounds each whereas the old ones up to 98MY were around 170 each, not sure if these figures include the dreaded VAT though. I have found the 99 lights to be better, but not a major improvement, until i put the xenons in. The Cibies will still be going back on though :-)

Is the MY99 spoiler (the prodrive one) the same as the standard STI spoiler? (Not the STI V spoiler but the earlier ones).

From various pics on the web they do look quite similar. If they are quite similar (same), I was wondering how they compare on price as an after-market add-on. Anyone know?

The My 99 spoiler is in fact the old version of the STI.
The new STI version is this spoiler with attached to a riser. Cost unknown ??.

I hope that with the MY99 spoiler you will just have to retro fit a riser.

Does anyone disagree??

I dont know if you can just fit the riser or not. Graham Goode racing sell a qenuine V5 (very) High rear spoiler, costs 850.21 (Part no. GGS 307) but not just a riser.
(Or a genuine 22b rear spoiler at 1,499.99 !!! (Part no. GGS 308))
Anders - make sure your spoiler is properly bolted down cos at that cost you dont want to have to replace it !!!
A UK Spec 99MY High level spoiler you should get for 300 - 400. Try Import companies or maybe dealers may have them in stock from customers with 99MY Turbos who have opted for the lower more descreet spoiler.
