Just joined the cult of the six stars. Sport Limited, got it for WELL under invoice. I'm in love. Only mod I'm thinking of is the STI lip spoiler or the regular front lip spoiler. Thought about the mesh grill but I think it looks better on lighter colors.

Nice! Get the STI lip. I don't think anyone has it yet on here. I was thinking about that one myself.

My 2 day old 2.0i I love it.

Looking at 17" black or white drift teks coming and looking at getting some H&R springs once I see some people put them on KEEN.

What's everyone else doing to the N/A need to know as I'm 2 days into the subie world.

Did you buy the HIDs extra and where from? Also where'd you get the Mudflaps/any Mudflaps that'll fit

Cheers

Not a lot you can do for noticeable engine improvement. Suspension and handling mods seem to be the most popular/helpful with the N/A Impreza.

For the engine? Changing the oil and driving it. There really aren't any gains to be made with it

Oh yep I've read that's basically it but have only heard people buying rear sway bar, is that all for handling or is there such thing as a front sway bar?

Also what's for suspension? Unless I've got it the wrong way around.

It's already got a Front Sway bar. They just left out the rear sway bar in the base model. The other trim packages have it on there already.

Looks like your steel wheels are 16", which is a little nicer than what the US version has in my opinion. Plus, the wheel covers/hub caps that you've got are what they use on the '13 Legacy and Outback, which make the wheels look like 17s. Not a bad look, but you might try to find some 16" wheels to replace the Steel wheels and transfer your tires over. Saves a little $$$ if you don't have to buy a whole new set of wheels AND tires.

I got my HID's from here: http://www.hidkitwarehouse.com/

My Mudfflaps are Flapatax. Installing them took me about an hour. I have the Aero Splash Guards so I had to get a little creative with the install, however, you can make it work.

I did the K&N drop in, and I'm getting the Moore axleback next month.. That's all I'm doing engine-wise aside from little cosmetic things. There's not much to be made here without being really creative and spending entirely too much money for not much gain. lol

Would you have some closer up pictures of your mudflaps? I'm planning to go the Flapatax route as well, did you order the originals or simplified? I'm leaning towards the originals.

I have the aero package (front and rear splash guards), how did that affect the installation process besides requiring new attachment holes to be drilled into the mudflaps? What did you have to do, if you wouldn't mind sharing.

I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow. I went with the original and I really like the way they look.

As for the instillation, the rear mudflaps bolt right into the holes pre drilled into the mudflaps. When I installed them I didn't use the mounting hardware that clips to the fender that they came with, rather a nut a bolt and a washer. When I installed the front flaps you remove the bolt from the Aero guards and that bolts up perfectly for one of them. The next bolt you have to get creative. The upper bolt I believe is required to go through the fender liner. What I did was cut a very thin slit through the fender liner so I could get the nut behind the fender liner(you can't even see the cut in the fender liner). Once I had this cut I taped a nut to a wrench and carefully put it through the slit and lined it up with the hole through the fender. Then I threaded the bolt through.

Again I apologize if this is really confusing. I'll do my best to get some pictures tomorrow to help explain haha
