Default from sleeper to wow





Now it looks as good as it goes.
Exterior mods:

- Grillcraft top and lower grills
- 1999 Impreza headlights (Koji style, HID kit)
- 1999 Impreza front bumper, side skirts, and rear spats
- tinted corners, sidemarkers, and taillights
- removed roof rails

Default which would you take?

Finally, I thought I'd throw these in here...
I live in Monterey, CA, and right now the Concourse d'Elegance is in full swing. The city is infested with every exotic under the sun. I've seen more Ferrari 360 Modenas today than Civics (I'm not joking). SO, i saw this guy cleaning his car, and thought I'd snap a few photos for comparison...



And finally, in Carmel, I saw this driving on public streets:


Yeah. Wow. Anyways, I followed the guy back onto the highway, and the driver of this rolling piece of art STALLED THE CAR a total of 10 times. I counted.

OK, well that's it...what do you guys think of my blue wagon? Yay or nay??

i think i remember road and track stating that the porsche gt was very hard to get moving in first gear, and that every single one of the testers stalled it the first time they tried to get going.
