You be will fine on stock suspension, I ran Tenzo R Concept 9 +37 offset in 225/40/18 on stock suspension before no problemo, even with a car full of people and stuff.

If you lower it then you will be best to roll front and rear fenders like I have, which Tenzo Rs you getting?

Here is mine for reference

Thanks for the info guys. I'm looking at the concept-9's. found a set on Craigslist around here at a decent price. They have the machined face which I'm not a huge fan of so ill probably get them powder coated satin black or bronze.

I may move the lights toward the outsides but then I'll have to drill into the bumper.

Edit: Sorry for the cellphone pics.

I went to an EOMM on Saturday @ Eastern Creek in Sydney, was an awesome day out! We got there early so had time to get a prime spot before everyone else started to show up.

I will let the pictures do the talking Hope you guys like it, still testing out different settings on my camera.

Possibly thinking about selling my SPT Front Strut Bar and my Rallitek RSB with HD Endlinks. PM me if interested...

I'll let it go to you 2.5i guys first before I post on Classifieds

I think it looks good I like the gray/yellow/green scheme you got going on especially with the hellas and the sport grill with the matching pinstripe. Its just those funky hubcaps. Slap some rims on it a drop and bam done.

yah as a college student i'm pretty broke so i'm saving up for a set of nice wheels. In the meantime I just took the stock hubcaps that came with the car and colored them for a cheap design. Used white pen-paint to color the logo in the middle

Hella's/Grille looks decent. Mudflaps are nice but the red doesnt go with anything.
Green Painted hubcaps= very very very tacky IMO and I would repaint them black if anything. edit- glad your getting new wheels lol
Also not a fan of your shiftknob but I wouldnt be surprised if it was really comfortable.
Specs on stereo and accessories please.

Agree with others on the hubcaps- at the very least, make them black until you get the wheels you want. And why the steering wheel cover, yuck. Otherwise its okay. Is that a different front bumper than stock? It looks like the wrx premium bumper.

Can't stand the steering wheel cover or shift knob. Looks far to tacky for me. I also don't like the hubcaps, would almost make more sense to just take them off and run the steelies all black.

As for your stereo that's all basically personal preference so I won't comment. Except for the subs, not a fan of taking up the entire trunk.

The steering wheel cover works ok for me because I have big hands and it's decently comfortable, at least for my personal preference more comfortable than without it. The shift knob and the cover both red themed to match the interior lighting which is red everywhere.

The front bumper is an odd story.. had to replace my stock one from a fender bender so I ordered supposedly the same one but turns out it came in with that pre-molded lip which is an inch lower than normal

Anyone had some fluid maybe water(?) coming out from under the passenger wheel well into the car when the a/c is on?
Also anyone have like a rattling sheet metal noise when the car starts/ sometimes are certain rpms cause of the vibration sounds like an exhaust heat shield?

Every car drips water when the AC is on
And at 2750 RPM's my heat shield goes nuts! So annoying because the car likes to cruise real close to that.

Just seconding this. Also, the heat shield is very easy to fix, roll under your car and clamp, crimp, bend the heat shielding in a way to stop the rattling. Just tapping the different parts of the shielding should tell you which section is rattling and go from there. Also, be smart and don't burn yourself.
