FSTi - WH04VBD

As seen here:
https://www.torque-gt.co.uk/blue-for...ti-160119.html

Is/was the owner a member on here? I'm sure I recognise the plate.
Just had a quick question regarding what suspension it was running - it's clearly lower but is using the standard front topmounts.

Cheers!

So your asking How they achieved the ride height ?

Looks standard height to me and if Torque GT are selling it I'm guessing it's a fresh import as that's what they do.

I see Torque GT are now offering the Meister R coilovers for these cars! :)

Yes exactly. It looks a fair bit lower than mine sits on standard suspension (on-screen estimation 1 inch), particularly up front? Although now I look again perhaps it is sitting on an uneven surface & has slightly higher profile tyres giving an illusion.

I see what you mean. Compared to :https://www.torque-gt.co.uk/subaru-forester-sti.html it does look a bit lower. Like you say could just be an illusion

Although one is a facelift! That'll probably explain it?

That facelift STi has some interesting corners on the headlamps I have never seen (or perhaps noticed) before:



Is this normal on facelift FSTi's? I wish I had known about their existence when I built my headlights, those would be nice to have.
