rear brake question

As above.. i have a std turbo uk my99 model, just got some new OMP sport/ comp groved brake disks all round and the rears that come are single 8.5mm and mine are vented 16.5mm Now the shops says they should not be on my car as they are for P1s STIs etc.. How many other ppl have this prob with rear disks, just want to know if they are std or been added at some point..

If this is the case a point to make to other ppl when buyin new rear disks to check first as i did'nt ..lol..

UK impreza's cars prior to 99 had solid discs, however your car has the correct fitment for its age................they are wrong!!

why not use someone who knows what you have!!! LOL
