Rally Innovations Light Bar. Be aware though, you'll need to cut both your splash guards.

If I do get thoe side skirts I might just leave them black, then get a front lip and keep that black also. Since I have a base my door handles are black . Those risers do look sweet. Negative for me though I have a sedan..

If I were you, I would pass. The only polyurethane part I would buy is a v-limited lip. I waited patiently for a pair of sideskirts to show up on the classified and picked them up for $25. Now they're just sitting in my garage waiting to be painted.

But if you do decide to buy them, we all need to see pictures! Are you going to paint them as well?

I got my front lip from that same company and the quality is not that great, a lot of imperfections in the lip. Plus those are just add ons to the existing sideskirts I thought? I think you would be happier with a cs style sideskirt like these :http://www.ebay.com/itm/190577608694...=p5197.c0.m619
and if you can afford it get the wrx/sti spoiler; thats a bargain and they usually sell quick!

I love those wheels and they look great on your car! Not gonna lie, I was really considering those for a long time but I really wanted a wheel that was at least 8" wide
**btw did you upgrade to wrx rotors yet?

Thanks! I love these wheels! No, I want to get rears but that will probably be a spring adventure. Those fronts are Powerslot rotors and stop tech pads.

The rears are the same as the 08+ Wrx -same caliper and rotor, the fronts have a smaller rotor on our cars eitherway they look great

Aren't they just a vendor though? Or does he deal with OEM parts also? I'd ask the local Subaru dealership but they are always fairly clueless when it comes to part numbers.

Thank you very much! Save $20/week and by spring you should have a good amount set aside for a new set!

Also, come spring I will be *hopefully* riding on Koni/RCE Black combo. Already have the donor struts, and will be picking up a set of barely used RCE blacks shortly.
