The car looks good!
The rear bumper is a direct fit as long as it's off a 08-10 WRX hatch.
Fredward has one and it looks really good.
Good luck!

I'm sorry, but this just has a really ricey vibe to it. With that spoiler, it really looks like one of those old civic hatch backs with a giant grapefruit sized fart can.

Maybe if it were a widebody it would look better.

suspension and wheels and tires definitly. thats gonna give a more aggressive look, if thats what you want.

Those look gorgeous. I'd want a gunmetal styled color

Ah everyone has their opinion - so far I've received good responses with it. Most don't notice it isn't just a normal stock wing.. but the thought that it might be ricey has passes through my mind - however the younger 09-10 WRX's didn't have the wide body.. just click the link provided above your comment there.

I'm not! I've been thinking of the red for a while.. I'll end up doing that I think!

Suspension wheels and tires FOR SURE. I'm waiting for my tires to eat it and then i'll do the whole nine yards. Intake is a must as well. But suspension is necessary. at the least, sways.

Replace "intake" with "downpipe" and you are in business. Intake will add zero power and throw a CE without the AP. If its just a cool sound you want the intake will give it to you. But performance wise the downpipe is an infinitely better investment.

Not for you! I was chiming in on erikjon who has an STi and therefore a turbo. On the NA an intake will add some power. Downpipe might actually be counterproductive because your engine needs backpressure. Performance modification on a NA that are the most worthwhile would be the intake and sway bars. Intake sounds cool, sway bars make a big difference in the handling.

Not a big fan of the aesthetic modifications you are making, but only because they aren't my style. I think you are doing a great job of making the car into what you want, and applaud you for doing a fantastic job of doing it yourself to get it where YOU want. Bravo and best of luck to you.

You can't put a down pipe on a non turbo car.

True story. Although my terminology is incorrect, I just meant to say putting a less restrictive exhaust on his car would be a step in the wrong direction.
