I love the sound of my muffler delete. My fiance, not so much.

Currently I have a strut bar. Aside from that, I dont know what other handlings mods we have as an option.

I got my kartboy shifter kit sitting in my basement. I also got a set of sport performance winters too ready to be put on my stockers if the weather calls for it (if my all seasons cant handle it).

I do plan on getting 18's as my summer set with a slightly wider tire.

I bought my 2010 STi SE 19mm sway from here. That was a couple years ago though.

Thanks! Not my best, just a quick snap. Start shooting with that camera! Def get a prime lens for perfect car pix (& portraits). 50mm or 35mm.

Does half an inch wider count as slightly wider? Because I picked up a set of 18x7.5 Enkei RS7s and I'm wondering how even wider tires would look or fit.

I would say so. You can do 225's on 7.5 width.

I would go 225/40/18. You guys agree?

I'm goin 225/50/17, not sure how that profile works with 18s, but 40 on 18s sounds like not much rubber

I agree if you want the rounded wall look. I'm running 235/40/18 and the side wall is straight. It also depends on your tire brand.

I would run 45's on 17 if you like more meat. 50's will look too chunky, that's just my opinion

Winter wheel setup with Michelin X-Ice 2.


I feel the same as most of you might think. It's not very good looking.

Are the black seats an option in Canada, I would have liked them on my white hatch? The blacked out roof looks really good too. Are the tails tinted too?

Canadian Imprezas in white come with black interior/trim.

Yep.

Since 2008, the Highway Safety Code provides for the following:

“Between December 15 to March 15, the owner of a taxi or passenger vehicle registered in Québec may not put the vehicle into operation unless it is equipped with tires specifically designed for winter driving, in compliance with the standards prescribed by government regulation. The prohibition also applies to any person renting out passenger vehicles not equipped with that type of tires.”



Quebec regulation can be expensive...

It practically comes standard up here. Yes the tails are tinted too! But i already had that done pre-accident! look a lil bit closer. Something else is 'darker'. hehe

So I hear. I myself am a huge fan of winter tires. So this wouldnt be an issue for me.

Did you paint the inside of the headlight housings too thats the only thing that looks different that I can see, unless it's just the angle from the light. If not I give up lol.

haha... I would love to bake my headlights but thats not it. Although, I do have a 3m film on the headlights to protect it.

The answer is in the reflection:

Since my car had to be repainted, I had them paint the spoiler gloss black. Its quite nice how it turned out. With the black roof & the tinted tail lights and the carbon fiber overlay diffuser, it looks awesome!

Its been raining for the last couple of days here due to Hurricane Sandy. I may just have to take a bad camera photo to show you guys.
