I heard from dipyourcar that it is good to 310F+, so it should hold up, and another nasiocer said he has had his dipped for over a year. Cant do catless, need my warranty brah! Especially with tranny issues (grinding).

edit- law school- thats expensive enough, dont need to be paying out of pocket for repairs

plastidip would give the matte black look, all I want is it to be just not chrome. Im really in no physical condition to do work on the car though, seeing as how I can barely walk.

Id post a pic to be a goodbro but Ill just have to make up for it after I move, not like you all havent seen bone stock 2011 wrx WAGONs on here.

Thats partially the reason, just to see what would happen. I also want to avoid the obvious nature of the thick shiny exhaust tips. Anything to make my car look less "high end" to the uninitiated, I'll do.

Yeah thats what I was thinking. Worst case scenario it looks like melted junk, then just peel/goo gone it.

Nah, haven't really bothered with them much, though I do have a couple from inside the car and romping through the desert. Not nearly as exciting on the vids as it was IRL. :/ Oh well, maybe I'll get some action pics one of these times. I really want to win Dirtiest Impreza of the month once, and it's always action shots that win it seems.

Yeah the SPT tips are brushed/polished, not chrome. I always thought they looked perfect. Of coarse I rarely washed my car so they were hardly ever shiny.

OMFG great setup, gregor. Wheels/rubber type/size, drop? Finally, someone with taste. I'm guessing it required some fitment tweaking?
