While some of the WRX 2.4T AKA STI parts are purely aesthetic, other additional features also provide performance benefits. The STI strut brace provides extra stiffness between the strut towers which enables better handling and stability when cornering, ensuring less body roll.
The STI cross drilled rotors ensure the brake pads and rotor surfaces remain clean and clear of dirt, and moisture. This increases brake bite and helps keep the brake performance in tip-top shape.
The sports bucket seats not only add to the performance car vibes, they also provide great support and stabilisation for the driver’s and passenger’s bodies.
The presentation key box includes a limited-edition numbered keyring and has moulded compartments akin to a jewellery box for the AKA owner’s key and spare.
