FWIW, I saw a Stromung prototype on one vendor's car. They're here on NASIOC and FT86Club, but I'd have to search to find the name. Allegedly Stromung will be producing an exhaust, but as you probably know, the headers will prevent it from sounding like a WRX.
I have to say it looks plain jane when it's overcast and is drizzling. But when you wash and wax it and take it into the sun, the amount of flake is simply amazing and the color really pops. the WRB is a beautiful blue, don't get me wrong - but here in a relatively small town, the cops will chase that car / color. I test drove an 05 WRB sti years ago, quite literally pulled out of the dealership, and had a cop blow a red light to follow and tailgate me within 200ft of the dealership. If I want attention I'll hop in my stupid loud MR2... but for day to day, I like to be a little more subtle. Then again, the BRZ will get attention once I lower it, put on some volks and never slow down for turns.
I will re-post after this weekend at auto-x. It should be 85 and sunny, providing some nice color.
