Our NA imprezas are honestly not meant to be performance as much as you or I want them to be haha. Just curious, are the stripes only on the drivers side or both sides?
just the driver side

Imgur.com seems to work great for me. I actually use photobucket to edit little stuff then save over to imgur for a longer lasting link.

For those with the aftermarket grilles, how did u get them to fit? I bought one on ebay but i had no way to secure it to the bumper. My stock grille had 2 pieces that slid into the bumper... any help before i return it??

Drill holes. If it's on tight enough, the bottom will clip to the bumper.

I was confused for a second. Looking at the pics, "When did Greg get the same wheels as me? Oh, that's from like 3 years ago. I got the same wheels as Greg."

anybody have any other suggestions to make my car a little more quick? I was contemplating trying to turbo it but probably not going to because I dont know anyone that would do it in my area. So im just trying to fix this guy up til I pick up a wrx or sti. I thought about trying a accessport and just basically doing a NA tune as well but not sure if this was possible. Any feedback would be great and please be respectful. Im sorry if these questions were covered a thousand times this is my first time on this site.

Trading it in for a WRX or STi is the most cost effective way of making a base model Impreza faster. To make it 'quick' and more fun to drive I'd suggest getting front and rear sway bars, coilover/aftermarket spring and strut combo, good brake pads, polyurethane bushings all around, and good street tires.

Those of you with stock exhausts, what tips are you using? The regular Autozone/Pepboys specials? I just wanna put something on there so it doesn't look so anemic.

I have the OEM chrome exhaust tips on my WRX exhaust. They look good but I wish they sat more flush with the bumper cover. If you went with something aftermarket I'd get weld on tips so you can get them on exactly how you want and they won't rattle like the 'bolt on' kind.

do you guys think an acess port on a 2.5i would be of any use. I know in previous vehicles I had done na tunes and they increased the acceleration a little and allowed me to use the launch control features. I obviously know i cant do any of the turbo options.
