Not trying to be a hater but that has to be one of the ugliest watermarks Ive ever seen. Heres my constructive criticism, its too big on the left and the black with a white outline draws a lot of attention to the watermark itself as opposed to the photo. Otherwise the pictures are really nice.

I agree, and I recently changed the size on both portions of the watermark. They are still left as black with white outline, because the intent is to make them visible on all photos. Here is an updated version of one of the shots with the new watermark.

Why don't you think it classifies as a sleeper??

Sleepers are cars that generally look stock but are very fast.

How could you not classify that as a sleeper!?
If I saw that driving around I wouldnt expect it to have close to 600WHP

Honestly having the hood scoop makes it more of a sleeper to me.
Seeing the WRX and no hood scoop makes me think FMIC.

or

If you de badged the WRX and left just the impresza, looks like all they added was wheels, exhaust, and spoiler to the n/a

Wikipedia is not the best source to gather info. Come on now some other vehicles are way more sleepers than that. I'm not hating or trying to disrespect. But idk it just doesn't seem like a sleeper to me. If I saw this strolling down the highway and just hearing probably gives it away.

Agreed... Not a sleeper. One badazz ride, but nowhere near a sleeper. Now, pack all that into a loyal or an OBS and a sleeper you will have.

I think there are probably two classifications of "sleeper". The first is a car that looks stock, but is much faster than stock. And the second is an extension that, and also requires that the car looks like a piece of crap (and is fast). My car doesn't look like a piece of junk, but I would assume that even a Subaru owner wouldn't expect my car to have more than ~300WHP if they saw/heard it drive by.

I think my car might qualify. 93 legacy L automatic swapped to a built ej22t with a full sti 6 speed swap. Brembos and fmic painted black for stealthyness. No scoop and roof racks add to the sleeper look as well.

Thats much better, what is the NF? That may be my issue, I dont think I dig it at all, but I really do like the font youve changed the name to.

NF Performance is the shop that built the motor. That is their logo.

Just a little. I hid the fuel filter, tucked some wiring, shaved off any useless things on the intake manifold and deleted all the a/c stuff. I was lucky to find such a clean base model shell with no abs. Car currently has only about 77k on it, not bad for 20 years old. I plan on re-locating the battery, fuse panel and washer reservoir eventually.
