Yeah I hear ya, when I had my hood stepped on and replaced, it was a cheaper option to get a wrx hood. Under $300 CAD. But I stuck with oem, I'm not trying to fool anyone. Would look sweet though.

Lol I had a dream last night telling me to trade my 2.5i in for a brz since wrx insurance would be rape. It was a red one but I would never buy red, I'm so confused.

Rally innovations has them but its not very good quality. I owned one and it looked great but was of poor design and began to rust early on. You could have a shop custom make one thats much better for the same price. That's the route I wish I took.

Perfect choice in my opinion as long as its solid and not hollow!
Balanced out with a 22mm FSB, its an equally perfect combo.

Haven't found a 22 front yet, so should I hold out until I find a complete set then?

(Also upgraded to 2010 WRX Struts+Springs---cornering even harder. Body roll is so much more minimized [I know I could have bought other springs but I'm trying to keep everything OEM+])

I got the rallitek kit so that's why I have the 19/22 combo.
I believe eibach makes a larger fsb, around 22mm but its hollow if I remember correctly. Thats awesome about the new setup! With the higher spring rates and properly valved struts, your car probably handles like champ haha

I was doing "slalom" runs on my neighborhood streets and the return to stance was so much faster. From a redlight left turn at high throttle was also fun! I can't wait to throw on my summer tires and do some high speed corners and highway merges. My girlfriend gets scared of how fast I can take tight turns already. I'm sure to freak her out soon.

Yes... bigger RSB on AWD could be dangerous... snap oversteer!!! I learned that the hard way on my previous WRX.

Whiteline also make 22mm FSB for our car (N/A Impreza).

I have 09 WRX struts/shocks w/ Swift springs (for 09+ WRX w/ stiffer rate)... they are awesome & great drop (-0.8"F & -0.7"R), too.

If you MUST keep everything OEM, try finding 08-10 STI front springs... similar rate as 09+ WRX rate BUT lower 0.5" to even out the gap.
