Question 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

Hi.. I'm thinking of buying a 99 STI and yesterday i went to see a car. it has a red (little bit looks like orange) touch in the interior. for example, the middle section where the A/C controls are located have a red-orange colored border.

And he is saying that its kind of an anniversary model..

Does anyone know about such a STI?

Re: 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

has it got a small plaque in the centre near the radio ?
Can't say I've seen one like before, is it UK or Jap ?

Never seen a JDM STi with an orange surround on the dash. The version 6 Ltd has a blue surround like this;

thanks for the helpful reply. yes, its looks like the previously posted blue interior pic. but the color is orange-red. thanks again.


and I looked at two sti 5s and one of them is produced in 1999. and the othe one is 1998. do both of them have the same specs? (non of them are special editions such as type r and etc)

the 1998 car is cheaper than the other one. but would it perform same as the 1999? (i mean are there any differences made between two years? )

Re: 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

mm, thats not the same as his, the actual stearing wheel itself is red and the gear stick gator. looks like someones had the red spray can out for it. the blue one has colour dials not the surround


as far as the special edition then should have a plaque inside it. get some pics up of the whole car and we can prob tell you if it is or not

Re: 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

yeh. but this is version 5 and the blue one seems to be the version 6. the colorings appears like original. but that could happen, someone might have painted it.

Re: 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

Looks like this Impreza has type R seats and someone has painted the dash surround red to go with the seat colour.

Re: 99 STI with an Interior with a red touch

As Pete and Tidgy say; someones painted that orange. V5 cars had the standard grey dash in both standard and limited form.

That also looks like a standard car as it doesn't have the blue Ltd seats. I don't know of any V5 STi anniversary model that has an orange dash surround and it wasn't an option either as I have the brochure for the V5 Ltd's.
