No hard feelings..I guess I just don't see where your coming from?

I thought I had pretty common mods for a subaru? grill, hellas, lip, plate delete, rally armours? Besides the angel eyes, I see those mods everywhere.

Holy mod bug!!! I'm selling my car before I'm more upside down than I already am on it I swear I had a 48 month but I guess it was 60 (FFFFUUUUUU ME). 12k early pay off, dealer offered 8k, trying to get 10k for it though private sale.

I love the car but know I was raped bad on it. Had no choice though, 0 credit 19 year old's first loan. Also 9.9%APR if you haven't cringed at the 60 month term lol.

Well just looking at it it seems like you took the car and cluttered it with too many cheap mods. The mods can be nice if used the right way, and not thrown all in. License plate, wing, and lights are a little over the top.. but of course this is all my opinion and you may do whatever you please with your car. There's a lot a drop, wheels, and a lip will do without needing all those little mods (like this)

Well said..I understand what you are saying now. I will admit this is my first car I've ever modified and obviously, I did my mods in the wrong order haha If I were to do it all over again..I would start with suspension and wheels.

But for now..this is what I have and what I'm sticking with. I love this car and hope to have it for a long time. In about a year I will have started a fun build with the subie. I dont want to hear people complain about doing a swap or trading my car so I will keep my plans a secret .... for now

I'll miss it but... TURBO
the little 10 year old wagon I test drove is way fast compared to my 2.5i and the stock suspension is comfortable yet sporty too. Surprised me big time lol. It's white so I can still continue the Panda theme I wanted to do!

I planned on this but my wagon will probably receive a similar treatment.

I myself personally am starting to like that particular wing and the 2.5i for some reason, and i kind of like the over-all look of the car besides the angle eyes and spacing of the hellas (i like them a little closer together) but i have seen 10x worse 2.5i's going around then this and like i said i don't mind it to much.

ac_dc45: Lovin the ride man very clean!

On another note bought the magna-flow exhaust after and am hoping to install that my ralitek sway's and my rear spats tomorrow or the next day, now the only other thing i need now is some coilovers/struts and springs and some UEL headers.

i'll have some updated pics up tomorrow.

I don't see how your that upside down. I got a 72mo loan in '09, and I owe way less than the car books at (party to party KBB). I owe like 10k and could sell it for about 14k or more. Actually similar cars in my area are going for $16k or more with more mileage than mine.

I only have 25k miles though, and it's mint. My rate was 2.5%, but it was a longer term too.
This is the best time in recent history to be paying on a relatively new car. Because of economic conditions and the cash for clunkers fiasco, the days of $5,000 depreciation when driving a new car off the lot is a thing of the past.

9.9% is a little crazy, but you shouldn't be in that bad a shape unless you way overpaid.
I'd just keep it. Buying a 10 year old car won't solve anything. You're car will last way longer, and will hold it's value way longer too. edit-- Of course I don't know if you've hurt resale value with mods or what condition it's in or your mileage.

18x9.5 Rota Grids and some coilovers, probably BC's. I have no idea about the tire specs but I'm going to guess 235/40/18.

hey hows everybody been??!!! long time since ive posted in here. Over the past few months my car has taken a dramatic turn lol. I blew my throw-out bearing (riding my clutch??) and when the t.o.b exploded, it took out my entire clutch assembly and cracked my tranny housing. CRAZY RIGHT??? long story short, after a week of dealing with a really shady transmission shop, the car is back in my hands with a new (used unit w/less miles) transmission/clutch assembly the car runs ok and hopefully I wont have to start car shopping. any idea why my throw out bearing went out? the p.o.s shop it was at couldnt give me a straight answer. It ate the entire pressure plate in the process. my car has 62k and I do not race it i will post up pics of the damage to the old parts later

Here are some new pics.





Hanging with some friends...



new perrin radiator shroud.



new transmission, what. a. shame.



im considering selling the car and getting a 11' wrx or brz.
i know it drives fine, but i dont feel like itll ever be the same again.
