Am I crazy for wanting to trade my 05 WRX wagon for an OBS to transform into a GF8?

..its funny you should ask..........yes it is a Porsche code. "Carrara" white. Same as used on the Cup Cars. Yes spelled Carrara, NOT Carrera. The guy as the Porsche dealer tried to correct me, as I went to the car and pulled out a Porsche Cup book that is offered from Porsche !!

Yeah it is super white. Like in that picture it is SOOO dirty too. Covered in dust etc.

Nope !! Its an addiction. Seeing the love Fuji Heavy showed with the Gc/GF series is what put them where they are now.....except somewhere along the way they ALL bumped their heads.

It just looks a lot brighter than my "Pure White" L model. I was into aircooled flat-4s and flat-6s long before I ever took a look at Subarus. One of my favorite cars in a '75 Carrera (that one is spelled with an "e") in Hawaii that's painted in Arctic white and sitting on factory chrome racing rims. All polished up, it's absolutely stunning. It's the car that made me want a white car.

"RoW" lenses with clear turn signals only go so far in my book. With the black RS I considered getting, or the Sedona Red OBS I would've bought, I wouldn't have thought about it. A white one? I don't know.A few weeks back I saw a pre '97 L sedan at Fred Meyer's; the nose was "White Out;" there was no color anywhere. It looked ugly to me; I couldn't wrap my head around the lack of contrast in the appearance between white paint and white lights.

This is also why my other flat-4 has red paint and amber turnsignals. To me, it just looks better without endless red without definition.

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about... do you have a picture?

I think white with blacked out fender and bumper indicators looks great. Like below.



Kind of like how on the Porsche there is no amber colored vents or turn indicators. It's just white with black accents. Looks really clean.



cheers

This is MY00 LS wagon....coverted to EJ25 n/a + 00 Euro GT tranny, Sti V.5 springs, KYB AGX, STi exhaust, WRX brakes...and more...

Not much done to the exterior in order to keep things "quiet".

I agree, I like the blacked out look. seems to break it up nicely.

My ones above still blink orange, they just have 3 coats of black Tamiya model lacquer. cheap and effective

Yes it looks good. I've been planning on doing the same to my white GC8 ever since I saw a white GT3. So nice.

A car length on the crappy ( ) 4G63 (VR-4) powered Lancer Wagon (Libero) before the 60' (incidently this was a 12.023 run)



And now some from its first outing at the track with the new cage... it had a few teething problems where I had obvioulsy messed a few things up re-installing the dash and stuff... Very unfinished in these track photos







Just a nice safety conscious pic, doing some makeshift repairs Gotta love being able to use one jack. ha ha

Dam that Suby makes me so horny, now it is my favourite. lots of respect man. GC/gf8 love!!

Indeed, the OEM chrome job is out of place....and it also had the OE Momo steering wheel with wood trim, and the center console was trimmed in wood as well.....not that many non-chrome ones lying around in here in Taiwan.
