^ Thanks man! I got it a local shop here in LA. You can find them on ebay and stuff but you have to be careful because they make fake Nardi wheels.

Cheers mate, it's a pretty rare colour here too in the newage, loads of classics in a similar colour but 95h mica blue only came in the bug. Most bugs sold here in the uk were either black, silver or wr blue.

i try my best to refrain from commenting negatively in these threads, despite my personal views, however i must ask a serious question. Why do you people lower the cars to the point of damaging them?

I understand its form>function mentality, and people do it because it looks cool or whatever, and performance is not the goal here, its looks. i get all that, but why keep going lower after its already so low your scraping the frame such? I understand that lots of people lower their cars to eliminate wheel gap, or make it sit flush, or tuck wheels, etc, but why keep going past the limit to where your causing damage and depreciating damage intentionally? Its like up to a certain point i get it, but where does it stop? Can anyone here give me an answer that actually makes any sort of sense?

Because people want to be cool. It's all about following a trend. Give it time and it will die off

Thanks, I've been thinking about a fmic and I have the stock hood to throw back on but, I think I'm just going to a cusco brace instead. I like the scooped look lol

Internet respect to you lol. At least you try to make sense of things rather than bash.

Anyways, for me it's like pushing limits and looking good. AutoX guys try to push their car to the limits and get a faster time. Drag guys push their engine and try to beat their opponent. It's just pushing the limit of how low you can go on the car. Also, I love the look. But I don't like the look of the crazy Japanese cars, I have a limit lol.

That's just my reason though. I don't have a need to put insane amounts of power in my car. I hate tickets. I just don't need to pour money into a built engine, etc. (although I would do it if I had a chance) I would rather take my money and put it into looking good all the time, rather than going fast sometimes.

Again, just personal opinion, but that's just a little bit of how I feel.

For me its all about the look and standing out from the crowd (have you ever been in a stanced scooby rolling down the street??? The look on peoples faces is amazing Now I know, that by no means is mine the lowest scoob on the road and defo not on this forum, but in the UK most people that are in to Subarus are into making them go faster or just want to leave them standard and enjoy the driving experience, but for me I think they are fast enough. My main motivation for going the stanced route was that every show I seemed to attend (most of which where with a club/forum stand) in my previous Imprezas, I found the general consensus of the spectators AND JUDGES was "oh look there are a load of Subarus" and then they would walk straight on by without paying any real attention to the cars or the amount of work their owners had put in to them, so I decided I needed to do something different, something that will make mine stand out from the crowd of seemingly standard scoobs, which I think I've succeeded in as to the best of my knowledge there is only 1 other stanced scoob (owned by a friend), running here in Northern Ireland. Now as for the reasons to keep going lower, well if I was building race engines and someone had done something to out perform mine, it would be back to the drawing board to squeez more power out and here goes the vicious circle blah blah blah, so my reason for going lower if needs be will be purely cause someone has got lower than me and I want to beat them. To some it up in a word "competition" if you build a car for speed you want to be the fastest, if you build a car for stance you want to be the lowest. That's my take on it anyway

I like to push the limits in terms of wheel and tire fitment. Width, offsets, etc. I don't like wheel gap on my car. I like being low. When properly pulled off, set ups can look great. It's not just about wheel fitment for me anymore. I like a well rounded build. Anyone can just put expensive wheels on a car and slam it. It's about making the car and fitment flow with an assortment of parts. Interior and motor work is a plus too.
