Cool Need advise!!!


HEY GUYS and GALS!!!

I have a simple question: " are the performance parts for my 2002 wrx, I find on Ebay worth a crap?"

I have seen unbelievable deals on exhausts, headlamps, uppipes..etc...

Does anyone have experience with this? PLEASE HELP!

Some are some aren't. I have had good experience with the exhaust parts, Downpipe, cat back exhaust. I have never used one of the up-pipes since I got an STi one. Turbo inlets 50-50 from what I have seen. Some of the intercoolers are okay. The turbos are junk(unless you know what your looking for) and they are to a large extend. Headers are junk and the headlamps I have no idea. Floor mats are sweet though.

Hit or miss. I would not put my money towards anything on Ebay. I prefer to buy quality once, than crap over and over.

Contact a vendor directly and usually they will offer you some good deals. I have went through Josh at Import Image Racing Your Online Source for Aftermarket High Performance Car Parts and Accessories for Subaru WRX and STI, Nissan, Mazda, Misubishi Evolution and others. and have been very pleased. Another, good vendor is OAKOS - WRX, STi, EVO 8/9/X, S2000, Forester XT & More Performance Parts.
