I prefer the wing on the narrow bodies lol. The wide body cars look "kitted" and the wing is over the top while on our cars it adds that aggressive touch that were missing, from the factory.

Haha, not even Grid's. They're Varrstoen's or however you spell that. But close though.

actually my wheels are Varrstoen 2.2.2 in Matte Black. they are 18x9.5 with a +34 offset. I love how the ride looks with the wing so i don't mind the bashing. everyone has diff styles and tastes. I was looking for a different grill but still haven't found any i like

A lot of cars on here have black roofs. Some Audis have a black roof from the factory.

Never seen an impreza come with a black roof (unless the whole car was)

Also, a lot of Audis come with Audi badges, that doesn't mean we should put them on our cars.

It's not my car but I'm pretty sure it's vinyl. I'm not going to argue about what mods can/can't and should/should not be done though lol

Didn't know you own his car lol. It's a black roof. How is that even remotely offensive to you? Calm down and let him do what he wants

All I said is why the black roof. I assumed it had some sort of benefit. Like the spoiler and smoked taillights. LOL

For looks. Just like how you spray bombed your grill and trim and calipers.

I never did anything with the calipers. And I used bed liner on the grille and trim the same time I did my light bar, because the fake chrome looked tacky and was flaking.

Agreed, did you ever listen to your mommy when she said "if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say it at all" (unless its constructive criticism)

..the black roof is a different style that some people like.

The black roof looks baller on a white car. I plan on doing it after I sell some old school textbooks. As well as a black trunk and the center part of the hood...

I did the black roof because I like it. I used to have it on my 2008 Altima and i guess you could call it my "trademark" I love the look of it esp on a white car.

For the tail lights i used Blue Batmobile's redout's with his tail light tint over it with a reverse light cut out. I will take a pic of the full rear and post it up by tonight.

For the "troller" here's a pic of my altima so you can bash on this car as well for having a black roof:

Nice Altima. Black roof looks better on some cars then others. Cant say I hate it on the 2.5i its seems to flow with the rest of the car, which looks good to me.

Ok good to know lol. Im a noob for wheels but how does the quality compare for the Varrstoen's to Rota's (if you would know)? Also glad to see that someone else understands that everyone has a different opinion Either way nice ride dude. Any suspension or engine mods? btw your old altima headlights with the overlays remind me of the 2012 impreza headlights haha

to my subie i have a custom exhaust with stillen mufflers and and AMG intake (still hasn't been released yet.) for suspension i have megan racing lowering springs. most of my mods have been in the car audio department. as for the quality difference I'm not sure but the Varrstoen's are much lighter than my Rota's. I personally like the Varrstoen's better. Let me know if you decide on getting the Varrstoen's, I know one of the guys so i can try and get you a discount or something
