Oh, that's all thanks to naru177. He had the link to the page, I just isolated the more interesting part.

STI sideskirts look good!

They will be eventually. Japanparts carries most of them. I just tried checking for Impreza-specific parts and couldn't find anything. I'll probably email them later to check for ya'll.

Yeah but why bother you wouldn't notice the difference between the two. I lived in Phoenix for 18 years and it's never been a problem. I'd go 15%.

Hey guys I was looking for some advice on a short shifter for my impreza sport. I am looking into the Perrin short shifter adapter and the torque solutions short shifter. Any suggestions?

I like my cobb. The positioning is pretty much and as stock. Some move the shifter forward and it didn't

I have a 2012 Impreza Sport Prem.

Looking into getting the crossbars.

Are there any places that are selling Subaru parts with a current promotion?(Presidents day)

Any help would be appreciated!

Check ebay, several dealers put OEM parts up for sale there.

Would something like this actually work? I'm not one to risk damaging my car by going cheap, but if the only risk by trying something like this is damaging the part, I'd try it.

So, is it worth trying?

Oh, and also...
for a backup camera, which i'd absolutely love...can this be adapted to a hatch?

Strut bars are more for looks unless you are doing some seriously aggressive driving. I say save your money

Did you do that yourself using VHT Night-Shades? Did you sand them down? I've been wanting to tint my taillights lightly but I'm reluctant to sand them down.

I have not been impressed with the Night Shades jobs that I have seen, so I had it done by a local body shop. The sheen level and clarity is a little better than Night Shades.

Tinting looks good but something you might get pulled over for, no?

Also, what'd you pay? Might wanna get a quote from a body shop near me as well. (though probably not as dark tinted)

I got a quote for vinyl wrapping at a shop for $65 Canadian tax in. Seems pretty reasonable I guess?

I would like them lightly tinted but not as dark.

Hi guys, I found this searching through the chinese domestic market today:
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...id=17104122266

I have already done retrofit projector headlight to my car, so I don't need this. I know this is not everybody's cup of tea, but this is a after market thread after all, which is why i figured why not share it. If you like it, good . If not, carry on . The price is probably around 300 USD. And it saves the hassle of baking your headlight and stuff that some people don't feel confident about. It's about the same price I spent on the project headlight kit. It is for XV but i am pretty sure they are compatible on the impreza.

just thought it was interesting

I would much prefer to retrofit them myself (which I've done) or pay someone to do them. I think they look rice with all the LEDs and angel eyes and such.

Has anyone ordered these or are interested in them? I can't decide what color would go well with a DGM and a plasti dipped front grille.

I ordered a set of carbon fiber/reflective green stars

Basically vinyl with the stars overlaid on top (not one piece but a base with the die cut stars stuck on top).

It needs to be warmer outside before I put them on, I'm thinking I will only do the rear because the reflective stars are not going to show up at night with the headlights on, but on the rear they should glow a bit. Maybe once the rear is on I will like it and do the front as well.
