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 if i were to want an easy dual exhaust install on my impreza, you're saying a BRZ exhaust setup would be an easier install than an STP, correct? just want to make sure im understanding things correctly. and of the two, which would you say has a deeper rumble?

First time posting in this thread. Just traded my 04 legacy for my 12 impreza. So far I have tinted the windows, added the sport mesh grille, and STI front lip. Still got more changes on the way. I think I will add more pics as I go but I am loving this car. By far the best all around car you can get.

Lookin good, Mitch! You don't see many Imprezas with the STi Front Lip. Looks sharp!

jsteg, I absolutely LOVE how you've managed to achieve such a clean, classy look on that Impreza while still retaining an aggressive appearance. Those sport wheels on the Limited Sedan are a winner!

Thank you sir! That's exactly the look I'm going for. Not overdoing it, but still looking good while not making it look like an 18 year old owns it.

Hello friends,

Some photos I took today. I decided to carbon fiber wrap the silver trims on the dash and added the red pinstripe for added pizaz. I got the idea off the bmw 3 series sport. Turned out pretty good. Oh, and I also pinstriped the grill. Quite common among the STI crowd.


















In 2 weeks time, im installing a kartboy SS and the STI 19mm RSB. Cant wait!!
