And this is the base model, don't even ask what I had to go through to get that OEM roof rack on
Is your grille painted black? Plasti dip?

Final question, aside from the install of the sway, how much did the bushings/end links/bolts cost you?

Thanks for all the help! This is my first real car (I didn't even own my '07 sportage for a year) so i'm still rather new at all of this.
Car looks great, Dan! I had to do a double take with the OEM roof rails!

I did Nebraska legal limit for the tint, 35 & 20. The K&N Air Filter is a welcome addition. While not hugely noticeable, it's there and I've always run K&N in my cars anyways. While my car isn't lowered, because of the 17x8 '11 WRX wheels, I did actually drop down a bit in order to keep my odometer / speedometer accurate. As for the bushings/end links/bolts... I honestly can't remember. It was the first thing I did for the car and I'm already considering upgrading those. Price for me is different since I'm an employee here, too.

I love following this thread to see what everyone else is up to. Get some great ideas from here. This is my first car I've actually worked on. The others haven't really been worth it.

Here she is! Brand new WRX wheels, wrapped in Falken Azenis, with some Gorilla red anodized lugs. Freshly washed.

She looks NICE!!

I like the wrx wheels! think i like those rims better than any other oem or aftermarket rim out there. I want a pair for myself but my oem rims (canadian sport) are very similar to those so I think im gonna stick with those and see how they look with some black lug nuts I recently ordered.

Thanks man! I really am in love with it! I want the H&R springs but they're a bit on the pricey side. I'll have to wait a while as I also just bought a bunch of stereo stuff that will be going in soon. I still want the STI sway bars too. It'll be a fun project over the next year or two! Post some pictures of yours! I'm not certain that I know what the sport model wheels look like on the canadian cars. Also, are your headlight buckets different from mine? I believe I read somewhere that yours have black buckets stock.

Holy cow, hopscotch! The whole lower portion of your car is set up EXACTLY how I'd like mine to be someday.

Hey, thanks Reverend! Your car is pretty darn nice too! I want to set my exhaust up something similar to yours. I know a guy with a BRZ, I've been trying to convince him to upgrade his exhaust so I can steal his stock muffler.

Plastidipped. Looks weird, but you can't tell unless you're up close. And it only looks weird because I didn't wait long enough for it to dry so when I tried removing the dip off of the logo it rubbed off the chrome in a spot (or two ).

Thanks for the praise Reverend! I might go for the K&N since you seem to like it. Can't hurt I guess?

get the STI sway bar ASAP. its a must!!
I posted some pics before but here is a random pic from last year.



I havent noticed if my headlight buckets are black or not. I don't think they are. If not I am planning on making the black when I do the projector retrofit...not sure when yet but if not this summer, then next. Too many other mod plans at the moment.

Damn. Ice silver looks great with the full lip, grille and spoiler.. The WRX wheels are a nice touch.

There's a leftover BRZ exhaust sitting at the shop where I got my SPT Exhaust installed. That's actually where I got that side-by-side comparison with the stock Impreza Exhaust and the BRZ's. It's not as loud of an exhaust as I would've liked, though... so if you're just looking for an exhaust that looks the part (dual exhaust just looks sporty) it'll be pretty hassle-free.

For my SPT Exhaust, we had to completely redo the hangars, which was probably 80% of the work we did to get it to work on my car. The BRZ's hangars are identical to the stock Impreza 5-Door exhaust setup (can't say the same for the 4-door as I haven't looked).

There's a bunch of great looking wheels out there but yeah, I hunted down a set of '11 WRX Wheels because I think they look better than most of the aftermarket AND OEM wheels out there in my own opinion. I've been contemplating going to our parts department at the dealership to ask how much the rocker panel spoilers that come on the US Impreza Sport would cost. Seriously considering installing them to help widen my body a bit. The 17x8 wheels are pretty wide already, so I think it'll help with the overall look of the car. At certain angles, it can look a little unbalanced.

Reverend, yes! I am looking for something that will look a little more aggressive and sound slightly throatier than stock. I don't need it to be particularly loud! If you feel like sending me that BRZ exhaust, I'll love you forever!

Haha! Actually, I might be cannibalizing that exhaust so I can steal it's resonator. The outside of my car is nice and loud, just how I want it... but there's no resonator on my car anymore as a result of the SPT exhaust... and it's pretty loud inside the car. My ears are getting pounded around 1600rpm and again at 2300rpm. I'll need to address that if I plan to have any hearing left by the time I'm 35.

Rpresa, I haven't had any serious issues, It rubs very slightly when I am driving in reverse, with the wheel completely locked in either direction. Doesn't do it while going forward.

Yes, though not at full price. Through some fighting with the dealership, I got these at a very discounted price. They were kinda jerks to me, so I got a few accessories along with my car.

They wrapped them in to the price of my initial vehicle purchase for $800. Also, thanks! I really like them. The wheels came by themselves in boxes for that price. I bought Falken Azenis and lugs for them.
