At least not thus far.. Installed it three days after owning it at around 20 miles.. Have like 1,200 on it now a few weeks later.. All is still well and mileage is still great. Haven't pulled the MAF yet, going to come spring and check for any issues, but all well so far!

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 help get some pictures tomorrow to help explain haha
Thanks, I think the pictures would help tons.

I think so... I just fail to see the point of having both.

I'm adding my aero rear splash guard mostly as a "rear lip", not as a splash guard. I'm not even putting on the front splash guards. I just want the whole lip look, thus stock side skirt, rear lip, and either the Subaru or STI front lip, with add-on spoiler. But I plan on adding the black Rally Armors as well.

Mudflaps:






As you can see the mudflaps dont sit flush. It may bother some but they are more for functionality than for looks with me.

Exhaust looks freaking amazing. Could you sum up what you had done? any pictures from underneath?

This is the Subaru SPT exhaust from the 08-12 STI Hatchback, the downpipe bolts right up it is the muffler that requires some modification. I cut off all the hangers on the quad tips to start. Then I bolted up the downpipe and attached the muffler and supported it with the car jack. I got it centered where i wanted and put the hangers in and tac welded them to the muffler. Once everything is tacked up you take the muffler down and finish welding it. You will need to cut out some of the plastic underneath in order to make room for the tips. It isn't even noticeable that I cut the plastic though.

Sorry I don't have any pictures from underneath right not. I am happy with how it looks and it sounds really nice too

Default Some pictures of my 2013 Sport Premium and I!










As to answer any questions, I ordered it at the beginning of November, it arrived on Friday Feb 15th, I picked it up. As of Monday Feb 18th, it has 610 miles on it, up from 0.8 when I got it. It's a manual, and I'm in love with it. It's my first ever brand new car. I have a few plans for minor modifications. A buddy that owns a machine shop is going to make me a one-off strut tower brace, and I was going to get the STi RSB. I also have a set of WRX wheels being shipped to the house for summer use only. I plan to tint the windows, get a set of red lugs for the summer wheels, and put an audio system in it. Other than that stuff, she'll be as she is now. I have yet to name her.... I'll update soon. The 2013 XV in DGM belongs to the woman I live with. It's a limited with a CVT.

I wish the Impreza 5 door had exhaust tips that were visible! I line the way that looks but feel i would damage it quickly because its so low. Has anyone modified the exhaust and made cuts to the plastic bumper? Ive heard of a few times where the heat from the exhaust effects the plastic? Is there a way to fit the sedan bumper piece with the pre cut area for the exhaust?

Were they hard to install ? I'm considering them because the standard lights just don't seem bright enough. Also would I be assuming choosing the yellow colour would make the road visibility at night harder ??

How much did the exhaust cost you, including any additional parts that you had to buy or fabricate?

The mudflaps look good, I'm going to pick up a set as well.
