allow me to share with you the car that made me fall back in love with the OEM BBS, especially silver which I have never really liked. I prefer WRX skirts/trunk/JDM fogs and i can go either way with the mudflaps (i removed mine) but after spending so long looking at other wheels, having a set of gold and silver BBS with summer/winter tires is really exciting again.
IMO the BBS's are old enough now that they are almost back in style. It's rare to see them in great shape, and I really appreciate them when they are. Mine are not, but very soon that will change.
Plus, maybe it's just me but the newer subaru's just don't do anything for me. Peanuts/bugeyes/2.5RS's are where it's at, and I'm glad to be in that group. I'll wave at the newer Subaru owners (assuming they aren't flatbill hellaflushers acting like tards) but I don't ever feel envious of the newer MY's.
I 100% agree. I bought my set off of a guy that had them completely refurbished. They were rattle-canned gloss black, but I got them powdercoated a silver with a bit of bronze flake, which looks awesome, especially with good lighting. I'll get a picture in here as soon as I give it a good bath! Then its time for splitters and a lip!
