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
Hmm interesting and definitely!
Let's hear about the audio mods while we're at it haha. I have a double din pioneer headunit with plans of at least new front speakers and a small amp in the future.

I have a Pioneer AVIC Z130BT head unit with all the goodies except the backup camera
I have 2 - Memphis PR series subs in a custom dual ported box (this is my old set, I'm waiting for my box to be done being built for my RD Alpha V3 sub.) I also have Rockford Fosgate T252-S components in the front and Rockford Fosgate T165 2-ways in the rear (upgrading to T252-S components soon.) Now for the amps.. I have a Crescendo 2000bc mono amp for the subs and a Crescendo 1000c4 for the interior speakers. I also have a Shuriken SKBT80 battery just for my car audio.

Holy crap greg. I'm so glad you bought that car!! Any plans for it? It's pretty much already perfect though I liked the wheels that the owner before that guy had on the car better

Nice! Looks good. You ever considered the JDM bezel? I have been thinking about it but $100 for a bezel is pricey. I'll find out tomorrow when I install my Pioneer if it the Metra kit bugs me enough. Haha.. Although I should put that cash towards an amp.

thanks guys! i'm excited to upgrade

i bought it without the wheels/tires seats/harnesses and rear diffuser.
i have 18x10.5 +15 Enkei Rpf1 on the way. no reason to have $4000+ wheels on a track car lol and i will put the sparco race seat i have in my impreza in there also. plans are just aero and weight saving for now. i am going to make a splitter, full flat bottom and rear diffuser out of alumilite sometime in the near future.

Amen. As long as you like it than that is all that matters.

Me personally.... I think it looks pretty good. I don't think it would work well with many other colors but with white the offset can look pretty good. I like the look of it and the altima, too.

Thanks man, I knew about the bezel but I got the headunit and installation as a gift from my parents from christmas through bestbuy-so they did all the work and used some universal piece which I dont prefer but in person you don't really notice it that much. I would save for an amp assuming you either have new front speakers or your utilizing the stock ones too , supposedly the stock one's arent that bad if you use an amp-their is a thread in the audio section from a guy with a 2011 wrx who did a full writeup if you wanna check it out.
as for greg-you can save weight with those expensive wheels tho! , i guess not that much overall though hah

Lol, uhh. Amazing how much better the subarus perform. Should be a poster video as to why SUVs generally suck.
