Carbon all da way - pain in the butt to close tho

Yol Fellas,

I got a carbon fibre boot on my scooby. I think it looks OK, but u should be warned that its a pain in da butt to close. I had to remove the boot swing spring to allow it to close without slaming it all da time.

But the look is flash - u'll definitely get noticed on da streets

Im sure subaru can source different springs for this - They offered me an uprated one when i changed spoilers - i.e. the STI spoiler was heavier and required a heavier sprint to stop the slam. Just a thought?

That is a bummer. Let just hope it's a misunderstanding and the goods turn up.

If not PayPal should refund you.

What is the guys ebay name, I take it, it was from ebay????
