It’s been doing the rounds on the show scene for the past couple of years, but in 2014 Parm and the Car Audio & Security team decided to upgrade the suspension to a full Air Lift Performance setup. Keeping the top-quality 4WD handling this 2005 STI can be fully slammed at the push of a button! And let’s be honest, those 18×9.5in Grid Drifts look fully insane sitting millimeters from the arches…

Rota RM100 wins Fast Car magazine ‘All-round Awesomeness Award’

January 06, 2014 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Special Offers, Uncategorized

Back in July 2013 we unveiled one of our most-daring wheel designs ever, the 18in Rundfahren RM100. This Euro-inspired wheel is unlike anything else we’ve ever produced featuring a concave construction, turbofan-style outer fins and even a retro mesh centre section. It’s caused a serious amount of positive discussion over on the Rota Facebook Page, and we’re hugely proud to be awarded the ‘All-round Awesomeness Award’ in this month’s Fast Car magazine!

From Facebook and Twitter to Tumblr and Instagram, pictures of Joe’s crazy STI sitting on 18x11in ET20 MXRs appeared everywhere, and it’s not hard to see why! Sure it may not keep the Subaru purists happy, but seriously, how aggressive does this motor look?! We LOVE it!
