Thanks. Yes, I negotiated the WRX hood when I bought the car brand new - that and the hatch spoiler. The scoop is functional now too, installed a top mounted cold air intake:


a nice boost of 10hp aint bad - really like it.

What other plans you have for yours?

I really like the top mounted air intake. I plan on doing that as soon as I get hood. Gorilla makes one that I want. Should be getting the windows tinted this week. I already bought an accord intake to put on for now and a new grill and clear side markers. They should be arriving wednsday.

I almost did earlier this year. For the OBS, you have to get both rear knuckles, rotors, calipers, and the parking brake cable. Its a decent amount of work and just haven't found the right parts car yet - already have WRX front rotors/calipers though.

These Grabbers are 28 inches, I'm happy with that tire size. The next things I am planning are 5mm wheel spacers to widen my track little and then another 1in or so from a set of custom springs or Foresters springs. But that has to wait until I figure out what I can do about what all that will do to my drive axles (concerned about the length and the angles).

threw some yellow tint on the fog lights. Also put a cobb catback on. Next thing is still needing to find rear struts. Trying to save for that and an anniversary next month is getting tricky tho. I plan on taking her to Colorado so I can have some fun with the obs as well!

Very clean - and I understand there is going to be a modification coming soon?


BTW - is that a 17' canoe in one of your previous posts - always wondered what length would fit well on the car?

Yeah it's a 17' only issue we had is that the oem crossbars aren't as wide as id like. It worked but not ideal.

I enjoy the MPG, but I wouldn't have minded a WRX I have other toys that go faster that a WRX so this is just the "college" car and will get other goodies like tint, tunes, suspension, WRX brakes, wheels/tire, etc. No performance stuff.

The color is actually holding well. The only issue is the black painted aluminum trim around windows. The summer sun has caused some fade. So I think next summer I'll work on some flat black rattle can touch up.

Cheers
Steve

Keep this thread alive with some updates.

De-badged and 18% tint all around. Goes back next week for the windshield after 2 chips get filled this weekend. Also going to pull the side moldings off if I find time this weekend.

I want those rims. And BLKbird I'm interested to see how it looks minus the door molding, I never thought of doing that.

Agreed, I also wanted to pull that molding off, but I believe there are holes in the door where it clips on as well as glued on...? take some pictures if you peel that off!
