Hey guys, I am curious if anyone knows where I can buy a Prodrive P1 Front Lip (GC8), replica or not. I have decided that this is the lip I want, so if anyone knows where I find one, I would greatly appreciate it.

Its a great looking piece, but didn't it say they were about to get them? Also, that piece isn't cheap, and us RS guys can't be positive about its fitment since it is for a UK GC8.


I talked to someone on i-club, and he said that the vendor Irvine Subaru is selling them. I PM'd him, and i'll let you guys know.

WOW! His car looks really good. Anyone know where he bought that lip? I just emailed him, so we'll see...

I would imagine that the UK company would ship to the US, it would just cost a little more though.

i thought that you have to be a P1 owner to be able to get P1 parts. i might be wrong.

My understanding is that is only for the 22B. But, both are made by Prodrive, and both are limited production cars, so maybe it is true...

IIRC, some vendor was selling genuine ones on the club formerly known as i-club. :rolleyes: They were like ~400-500 though.

SWEET! You got a hold of those guys? Good job. Please let us know when they tell you a price, because it doesn't say on the website.


Also, I got word from Irvine Subaru, and they are letting Genuine P1 lips go for $530.17, which is a bit pricey in my book.


Thanks for the info.

Hi David,

The P1 front lips are fibreglass, and cost £200.00 including painting. Shipping would add £60.00 to you.
A total of £260.00 or $400.00

400 bucks... not bad really considering painting. If I had 400 bucks I'd probably go for it.

Nice, thats not TOO bad. I am not a fan of the fiberglass, but I am sure I can live with it. The only problem I see with the painting is color matching. England didn't get the Midnight Black Pearl or Blue Ridge Pearl did they? I am sure they got slightly different colors. Hmmm.

Colors available

Of course they did...In 2000-01, no Impreza was available in Rally Blue, only Blue Ridge Pearl...Oh and its probably MY99-MY00 overseas...Over here its MY00-MY01

I have 2 P1 front lips in stock and yes retail is 530.17 but Prodrive doesn't make anything without extensive R&D to improve the aerodynamics and they use better than stock material. If you bump a curb with the P1 lip well you might scuff the paint with fiberglass you won't be as lucky. The real thing is worth every penny.

I know that is why I like the polu-urethane material more, its just more durable. But, I guess you get what you pay for right.
