The only reason its impossible is because this is just basically pressed plastic. Maybe if they made it out of frp ir full carbon it would look better but then they would actually have to take a long time to make and costs would go up because they arent stamping plastic anymore.

I saw someone who got this and put some sort of weather stripping on that lip to cover it up. It looked better but still imo this so called diffuser cheapens the look.

I know the arguement that its the only thing in this pricepoint but that doesnt make it nice hecause its the only one out that people can justify to buy.

Just my $.02.

I Have held off buying body kit items because honestly I haven't found anything that I like yet that doesn't look cheap. I totally understand the price point thing but I'd rather pay another $100-200 and get something that looks like a finished product. I was debating the Bayson R Cs Lip and Skirts and having them paint matched to Obsidian Black Pearl but then I was thinking with this body style going on for the third year we may start to see some other options pop up.

on the other hand, your interior is clean, fresh, and classy. take the same approach on the interior to the exterior. $600 steering wheel and a $12 kmart bike reflector? come on now.

Not really feeling that diffuser... it looks cheap and made of plastic. When are we going to start seeing some real diffusers being made?

Varis makes an awesome one...but it also costs an awesome amount. You get what you pay for...The HT Auto diffuser is great for the money...the Varis diffuser is $1500USD roughly.

HTAutos rear diffuser needs paint-matched in the worst way.

This is my last week with this POS WRX, hopefully.





Dirty pedals! Lil' homies! Hand sanitizer!

I've seen a red one driving through PG-5 (where I work) a few times. Mostly during the summer semesters. I still don't have a WRX but seeing the few around campus makes me want one even more

I think they're exhaust finisher's will also help the finished look.
