Question 2006 Subaru 2.5i New to fourm

Hey guys, as you can probably tell from the title of this thread i'm new to this forum. So i'm thinking about getting a 2006 subaru 2.5i i asked around and people are telling me not to make it look like a wrx or sti and dont go too far with the mods, that it will look ricey if i do. but this is my first Subaru and honestly i'm getting this 2.5i becuase its cheaper than a 04-07 wrx. i'm i wrong for wanting to put an sti wing on it and maybe someday swap it? So now im having second thoughts about it what should i do? ignore other people or just buy it and do as i wish to it? and **** i spelled forum wrong my bad

I say its your money and you do what you want. Don't worry about other people if you like it then do it and if you don't like it then sell it on craigslist.

In the long run it may be more expensive to swap and everything else.

As far as being rice, do what you want, you like the wing, you've got $300 burning a hole in your pocket? Go for it.

Maybe try to trade first?

Like you I also I have a 06 2.5i. I also had the same thoughts of upgrading it and had the same responses of it would be rice. But at the end of the day its your car and you should do what YOU want.

Yep! just like everyone else has already said do what you want with YOUR car!! and if they don't like it you can always spend $100 bucks and add one of these to your window!

OK first off I wouldn't consider putting sti front end or wing or whatever rice. Second of all a swap would be a HUGE waste of money. If you can't afford a 04 wrx then look at an 02 and if that is still too much then I would recommend buying a cheap na impreza of some sort to get you comfortable and familiar with wrenching on Subaru's until you get the money for a wrx. Also this is pretty helpful too, http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533787
