It's a 3.5" fr 4.5" rr lift with 1" subframe drop, so the engine is sitting lower, so the exhaust is too. The photo is also taken low down so it looks worse. When I get a new exhaust, I'll get it tucked up as high as I can

I'm still looking to get a set of these, but shopping for 4 pots first for my SG.

Does anyone know the differences between the 4 pots and can confirm what works? I can see earlier ones in black and red that have raised lettering and look chunkier, then later 06/07 ones that have a Subaru decal instead of raised lettering - read somewhere that later ones clear Forester factory 16" wheels but the earlier ones don't, which would probably mean they don't clear 15s either.

There's plenty of earlier raised lettering 4 pots for sale but decal ones are rare, plus they're more expensive. Has anyone tried the raised lettering 4 pots on an SG?

I have the older raised lettering 4 pots from a 99 WRX. I had to shave off a small amount from one corner of the calipers to fit the Audis.

Default pepperpots

Audi pepperpots were suggested to me a week or so ago. I have searched everywhere and can't find any for sale except in England. The price is reasonable but freight is a killer.
