Thanks, I have red flaps so it should flow with the car well! I like the silver on your car though it's very subtle and keeps the car looking more classy versus "racer-boy".

With the red mud flaps your golden.

Thanks for the compliment. I said from day 1 I wanted a nice and clean ride, not some ricer like the hondas i see everywhere in my town

Speaking of golden my gold rpf1's have red stickers on them to keep the scheme flowing. I don't care for the gold and would like to paint them white in the spring.

What did you do to you badges?

Also where is everyone getting their window trims/windows decals/stickers & the overlays for the taillights?

Looks pretty sweet by the way.

i wanted to go lower with mine too until i realized it was a pain in the dick to drive around everywhere. any lower and getting in and out of my garage would be a serious chore. im backing mine off to a spring/strut setup and getting a second car to bag so i can actually put a car on the ground like i want.

How bad could it be...





I don't scrape nearly enough for it to be an annoyance. The biggest issue I have with my car is the rake. I can still go lower while keeping the front bumper at the same height. I need to drop dat ass.

lol, it doesn't look like that anymore. the red stickers are gone. the horns and window sills are black. grille pinstripe is gone. badges are stock and no mudflaps. license plate holder is a normal rallysport direct holder.

but, i got black and red pinstripe(separate) from autozone. that's what i covered the sills with. the rear taillight vinyl i got from a friend here in slc who makes stickers.

Jourdan, you know I like your stance, but I just cant justify spending $1000+ on coils, especially since I am going to be taking it to the snow.
(might have to do the whole winter/summer set up though)...

RCE yellows with possible KONI inserts FTW!!

I would NOT be able to be that low, as much as I'd like, but I might have to do what Bio said, get a second [subie] to lower one...

tmangt, I am on a similar page as you. I was recommended coils at first, then did research and heard of a bunch of negatives for winter driving. So now I'm looking at a GTWorx Bilstein/RCE strut spring combo. I live near Pittsburgh and its got too many hills to survive a low drop. The upgraded strut/spring combo will handle better than stock, lower my car slightly, and it will allow me to still get to 7 Springs when I want to go shred.

Here's a pic of RSutton's wrx on the bilstein/RCE combo:


What do you think of that setup?

Yeah I figured you weren't talking about getting another SUbie, but I wana! I will end up (once this one is paid off and depending on what the other half says) I want to get a subie with more power.

I like the set-up! I still think there is a little too much wheel gap for me. I think from my research the RCE yellows lower it a little more, but are those 17s or 18s?? Looks good..like the combo.

Wow, and I was told getting 17s I would need to be worried about needing to roll the fenders..

This is what I'm hoping to get on my car within a couple months

I run 18x8 Enkei RPF1's on stock suspension and only rub on the rear passenger side when I'm going really hard into a left hand corner or their is over 250 lbs in the back seat haha. I think it's rubbing on the fender liner or suspension. I can't figure it out but oh well... lol.

I'm pretty sure my struts are bad, when I drive slow I hear them make a creaking noise.
