I think he meant the headlight mod but I want to know about this 1.6i thingy he's talking about! Ah he has side markers on a Hawkeye. Might be a EDM car?

Blue and gold always go well together! Silver and gold not so much...

The color didnt changed .. But evey time i took pics it looks different i guess this is normal for npb .. However i was showing pics after clearing my headlights and painting side grills .. And yes its a photoshop but only for the mirrors .. But the color of the rims is much nicer in the real world and i can change it to any color and thats why im taking ur opinions .. I can make them white or as the first pic or gun metal or any color .. just tell me

Nothing much to say about it ... Its 1.6 sohc 95 hp 143 nm tourqe .. Slow as hell but its still a subaru .. It uses a map sensor instead of maf and it has rear brake drums .. And the good thing is that fog lights are standard on it (lol) .. If there's any thing else u wanna know tell me .. And btw u could imagine how slow it is

I drove a couple '12 Imprezas yesterday. Both were premiums, one with 5-speed (or was it 6?), one with CVT. Both 5-Doors.
They are not anywhere near as fast as my '09 2.5i like Subaru said. My car has SO much more torque at all RPMs, and being a 5-speed manual only weighs 3,016 lbs, not much more than '12 model with 150hp.

They are very nice cars with a nice quiet ride and they corner flat and feel light. Definitely a smoother ride over bumps, but I have 225-45-17's on 8'' wide rims, these new cars have 205-50-17 on narrower rims. I need a rear sway and I'm sure mine would corner just as flat.. I definitely have more overall grip. Anyway, besides the power being so uninspiring, they are nice cars. The engine sounds nice at low RPM, buzzy closer to 3,500 to 4,000. Being new I didn't rev over 4k RPM.

I can see the CVT being faster than the manual too, like all the reviews say. The paddle shifters are fun, even though they aren't really shifting anything.. but it feels like shifting gears, even downshifting.

New goodies. car is out of my hands for some minor paint work and preventative maintenance but will be getting all this and more within the coming weeks!

First on the list!
-Nameless axleback delete. LOVE IT. thats all i can say about this product.
brings out the subaru rumble, little drone but bearable i am completely in love with it.
i cannot say enough about nameless. jason helped with everything i needed i highly recommend speaking with him for your requests. he also told me that i would be one of the first with titanium rainbow welds on the product as they are made to order.

soundclip will be up when i get the car back.




I also had a chance to restore my greddy/trust shift knob.


This stuff is also waiting to go on the car. i dont know if you guys remember that i used to have a blue "theme" going on in my engine bay? well these accessories will now replace all the blue things and i will now go with a black/red theme in the bay. new stuff includes:

SUBARU BADGE OF OWNERSHIP W/FATLACE DECAL
HKS OIL/RADIATOR CAP
SICKSPEED RESERVOIR COVERS
SPT BATTERY RESTRAINT
AND BLACK CAI COUPLERS

and lets not forget the snazzy winshield cover

I have been a fan of the oem sport grill without the badge and cutting that middle piece in the middle of the bumper with paint matched hellas (but thats just me hahah)

Digital dillon modified his grille to make it simliar to a 09 which also looks great too.

WRX grill or my "replica"
I also like the sport mesh grill (prefer color matched) but only with the badge, unless the car has an aggressive stance.

I think you are confused about the pillar behind the grill. The pillar is actually attached to your bumper. You just can't see it because your current grill is blocking it. If you purchased the sport grill it would be very visible but it can but cut away easily.

With the pillar still attached:

So you gotta cut out two pillars.
