Wow looks great man! The white really sets off the lines of the car. By far the best color for the new Imprezas IMHO. Keep up the good work.

Slam it! Btw, how did you do the taillights and the rear bumper carbon fiber applique? And can you elaborate more on your day running lights?

Tailights and Rear Bumper overlay was installed by a shop that specializes in tinting. The rear bumper overlay is a 3M film.

The daytime runners are basically LED bulbs. Plug and play. Bulb size 9005.

Looks good, I'd recommending plasti-dipping the front grill so the chrome doesn't pop as much.

Also, is it just me or are the license LED's really blue? Should upgrade them to some whiter ones so they mesh more with the paint, IMO.

Plan to debadge?

Looks nice though, one of the better Impreza's I've seen, nice work!

I actually really want the mesh grill... but Im trying to save money. I will most likely eventually plasti dip the front. Definately on my list.

The license plate lights are actually white. They just glow blue in these pics for some reason.

Thought about debadging but I kinda like the badges at the same time? Still on the fence. You think I should?

Thanks man =)

Yah, I was same way with my '11 but am a lot happier with the looks of just the wrx badge on back...cleanliness of lines and declutter really make a difference.

Thanks! I like the tinted tails.. I find it makes the car look meaner and more sporty.

Looks good! I like everything about what you've done with it. Gah I just do NOT like what subaru did with the rear...but you definitely enhanced it.

Hello friends,

Some photos I took today. I decided to carbon fiber wrap the silver trims on the dash and added the red pinstripe for added pizaz. I got the idea off the bmw 3 series sport. Turned out pretty good. Oh, and I also pinstriped the grill. Quite common among the STI crowd.


















In 2 weeks time, im installing a kartboy SS and the STI 19mm RSB. Cant wait!!

Cars not bad but your HIDs is those stock housings make you the biggest ass-hole. Nothing against you personally, but being blinded every single night by people who put those things in reflective housings is seriously getting on my nerves. Do it right or dont ****ing do it at all!!
