Hello everyone!

Here at Flatirons Tuning, our customers are our number one priority, and we try to be a one stop shop for OEM and aftermarket parts. At this point, I have thousands of parts in stock, but I want to know what people would like us to bring in!

Feel free to post up in this thread what products you are looking for, and I will do my best to either bring it on as a new line, or see if I can at least take care of you.

affordable endlinks ($120 for all 4?).

TMIC splitters for the 2.5 RS for the more popular TMICs. or maybe a new style hood scoop that will work well with these TMICS.

various body parts (the actual metal) like rocker panels for the rust belt folks - subaru charges a ton.

rubber parts. subaru charges a ton. good fitting OE would be awesome. our cars are old now.

those little rubber covers on the windshield wiper.

new door windows we all hate our scratched ones.

a exhaust pipe protector for the bumper cover

nice looking more modern style front and rear lights - something between the ebay ones and JDM ones

upgraded steering rack - almost all older GC8 style cars have leaking ones these days and nothing like a shorter lock to lock radius to make the car feel more sporty. I know there is a couple of companies doing this but if the price was in the $600-$700 range youd get more people to jump on it.

a rear diffuser

other types of protection for the bottom of the car

nuts and bolts and fasteners - I'm always getting these out of the junk yard and removing the rust on them.

swap kits - a vendor did this. seems awesome. one could do transmission only or engine only or both.

I know this is a huge ask but the dash and center console. A new one. One designed for our cars and fits right. Sure use the newer STI for inspiration, add in built in gauge pods. Optional subwoofer in the center console. Optional HUD like a bmw/corvette.

while im at it - i'll just go for it - a LCD IPS LED screen instrument cluster.

lots of those items are just to keep our cars not looking like shit anymore - some of them are to make our cars feel more modern.

I know it is unlikely some of those will be a profitable venture but I also think a lot of these items would be rather similar for bugeyes and newer.

+1 on the tails

ebay has tons of red and white tails for civics but how is no one making them for our cars?

some na intake.

some cheaper test pipes
AEM and Injen both have intake kits, contact me if you are interested in pricing.

id like to see some parts from across the pond..id kill for a lhd edm rear foglight. or headlight washers.
I will see if I can make a connection for importing EDM parts. The problem is, I do not like dealing in used parts, so I do not know how cost effective it would be.

Believe it or not, the cheapest option I know of available is the OEM links. FWIW, we sell those at about $160 for the full set of four.

TMIC splitters for the 2.5 RS for the more popular TMICs. or maybe a new style hood scoop that will work well with these TMICS.

various body parts (the actual metal) like rocker panels for the rust belt folks - subaru charges a ton.

rubber parts. subaru charges a ton. good fitting OE would be awesome. our cars are old now.

What rubber parts are you looking for? I would be happy to look into options for you.

those little rubber covers on the windshield wiper.

I am assuming you are talking about the rubber caps? I have those in stock for about $1.25 each.

new door windows we all hate our scratched ones.

The only option I know of for these parts are the OEM pieces. Your best bet would be to go junk yard hunting. I can certainly get them new, but they are ~$300 a window.

a exhaust pipe protector for the bumper cover

This may be something we can look into.

nice looking more modern style front and rear lights - something between the ebay ones and JDM ones

upgraded steering rack - almost all older GC8 style cars have leaking ones these days and nothing like a shorter lock to lock radius to make the car feel more sporty. I know there is a couple of companies doing this but if the price was in the $600-$700 range youd get more people to jump on it.

The reason why most of the racks are that expensive is because of the amount of machine work involved in producing a new gear set for the rack. Another option is just use a steering quickner, but obviously that doesn't solve the leaking issue.

a rear diffuser

We actually already have a kit for that HERE

other types of protection for the bottom of the car

We have rear diff protectors available currently, what other protection are you looking for?

nuts and bolts and fasteners - I'm always getting these out of the junk yard and removing the rust on them.

swap kits - a vendor did this. seems awesome. one could do transmission only or engine only or both.

Again, the main issue we have with something like this, is used parts. There are just way too many factors in dealing with used parts, especially with engines, transmissions, etc. FWIW we have all the new parts you will need; engines, trans rebuild kits, etc.

I know this is a huge ask but the dash and center console. A new one. One designed for our cars and fits right. Sure use the newer STI for inspiration, add in built in gauge pods. Optional subwoofer in the center console. Optional HUD like a bmw/corvette.

Something like this just wouldn't be feasible for any kind of reasonable price.

while im at it - i'll just go for it - a LCD IPS LED screen instrument cluster.

Same with this :sunny:

Do you guys have the OEM part number for the window pads GC/GF Window Scratch Fix Kit?

Does the dealership sell them in a pack of four or seperately?

Thanks
They come individually. We have them as a kit. Depending on if it is a coupe, wagon, or sedan, there are different part numbers.
