Sorry for my slackin' azz. I don't honestly know if they are v7 or v8, but they are blue/black just like USDM, but black has that red pinstripe. It's actually more like blue / dark dark blue w pinstripe. They are really tight, super snug. I paid $800 for both fronts and both rear pieces, then sold USDMs to a fellow WRXer for $800 so it was a straight even deal for me.
I will take some pics and post, I swear I will.
