You probably don't see it too much because 19mm is enough for the type of driving you are describing.

Thanks! And as much as I love the MBP, I also wonder from time to time if I should have went with either DGM, ISM, or a two-tone but at the end of the day I'm glad I went with the MBP. I think I will really appreciate it more once I paint my set of '11+ WRX wheels Grimmspeed BBS Gold. It should really make the MBP pop!

Thanks! I totally agree that the painted shrouds for the fog lights are a game changer. It really gives it a clean and seamless look. I am pretty content with the front end of my car, other than me planning to have my head lights and fog lights retrofitted at the end of this month (I'm still debating on if I should blacken the head lights or not, as well as if I should go overboard and do a quad-xenon retrofit) and possibly seeing if a body shop could modify the STi lip to fit with the front underspoiler, I think I am done with the front end.

I also agree with your sentiment about keeping the car looking OEM yet still unique. Most of the things I have planned for the exterior are OEM modifications: body molding, STi lip, '14+ Forester side view mirrors, and XV Hybrid tail lights with a red vinyl overlay (I'm not a fan of clear tail lights). But I also would like to add a shark fin antenna and some fender flares similar to the Bushwacker Forester but keep it tonal so that it'll blend seamlessly with the rest of the exterior. Then have the wheel wells rolled and pulled so I can throw on some wide wheels (17 or 18 x 9.5 or 10) with some meaty tires (255 or 265), just to give my car a wide and aggressive stance. I know it'll be all show and no go (and a bit overkill for an econobox), but I just want to have a great looking daily driver that gets good gas mileage but is also fun to drive. And I think I'll be able to achieve that if everything goes as planned.

Today goofing off with some mates in the parking lot when I was picking them up, I found the car again understeering upon entry and transition into mid turn. I don't like this, so I think in some cases the 22 may be a good idea. I'm still not convinced as to whether a strut tower brace is better for entry oversteer and steering feel/turn in or a thicker sway bar.

All of that sounds awesome. I eagerly await more pictures/news of your success on pursuing this direction!

My Impreza with the rest of my growing family of Subarus. I started things off with my '12 Impreza. Mom picked up her '13 Outback last fall. Dad got his '14 Forester yesterday!

Runnin in the rain with the guys last night. It was fun keeping up with them in the corners. My suspension is still stock, so I've gotta give credit to the Eagle GT's on my '11 WRX wheels that kept me stuck to the road like it was sunny and 72.
