A rare Subaru WRX STi is sure to appeal to many. Of course it's fun to be on the road with something rare. Not the VW Golf R or Focus ST or as they all may be on every corner, but a WRX Sti is rarely found. That the great days of the Subaru WRX are counted here should be clear, the rally successes are only in the history books.

Anyone who drives a Subaru WRX STi in its original condition on our roads is certainly not necessarily at the forefront, the WRX can only play its performance plus away from asphalt, which most people are likely to plan.
So that the all-wheel-drive Boxer but also on asphalt with Audi S4 or BMW 335i can keep up, it needs neat optimization. Who actually does the expensive tuning of the exotic actually gets a driving machine with rarity value at the end.
Just find a tuner for a Subaru WRX STi? Not easy…! The Swiss tuning company Badtoys knows about the potential of the "rice cooker" and can look back on over 20 years of experience. Here a 2011 model was tuned and pretty much every series part was replaced.
Strut braces with uniball end links were installed at the front and rear. A D2 Super Racing coilover kit including separate rebound / compression setting and adjustable steering knuckles, for braking 356 brake discs including eight or four-piston calipers, plus a reinforced bracket for engine and gear, a sports clutch, a shortened shift path, plus semi-slicks and and and ...
Even if the whole car was completely changed so it is a surprise that the engine was only discreetly tuned. Since the 2,5l boxer is considered rather vulnerable, it is understandable again.
The catch on the matter, the complete set is currently only allowed in Switzerland and an E90 / E92 M3 outclasses the whole nevertheless and is used quite affordable.
