    Subaru OEM JDM Door sills install

    OK this is an update to the following thread:
    http://www.wrxfanatics.com/index.php...opic=55627&hl=

    Well, what happened was that the MOMO door sills, while they looked pretty sweet, didn't really have very good adhesive tape on them. At least once or twice my foot would catch on the sills and bend them or tear them off...

    Finally I decided to knuckle up and just get these instead from
    http://www.japanparts.com/db/partsli...ey=069-013-001

    Yes they're quite a bit more expensive, but those MOMO sills are no longer available... at least not for the price that I got before! (FYI - there's a 10% NASIOC discount available - PM the japanparts vendor for more info)

    We'll see just how the new ones hold up, but first impressions are as follows:
    Pretty good adhesive (and a lot of it!). Seems like a much more secure bond to the plastic. The overall installation is the same as before.
    Subaru includes a 3M preparation cloth to wipe down the parts and get them ready for the bond. Plus they're a totally OEM appearance... I just wish Subaru had included them with the car in the first place. Here are some pics... you can compare them to the pics in my other thread.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    I think new floor mats would have been a better cosmetic investment.

    sorry fixed the links.

    Personally I like the floor mats. I'm not a fan of the carpet things that they included with the car. I like the rubber ones (usually ones with deep grooves in it) cause when I was in NY, I would track rain, snow, and sand into the car. The rubber is just vastly easier to clean.

    Granted the "racer" ones are a little ricey, but I like them so there.

    You could buy some of the Subaru all whether floormats. Really nice looking, they even say Subaru on them. $69 at the dealership parts department. I got them as soon as I got my '07 because the carpet in these cars is so ****ty. Just a thought.
    Mods are like tatoos, they're addicting, but at least you can take mods back off when your ass starts sagging
