^ Paint the license plate delete black to match the car and then put red tape behind it to make it stand out.

^Nice! Exactly what I wanted to do with my emblems. Did you do it like ive seen in videos? Just tape roughly around the emblem, spray, then peel excess?

Quick question... who's running 17x9's on their 08+ 2.5i w/ stock suspension?

How has the handling changed?

Plasti dipped the trunk trim today. Probably going to spray the emblems too. Also gonna get some overlays for the tail lights and 3rd brake light. Still debating which color.. but mostly leaning toward all red. What do you guys think?





New exhaust coming soon.. (not my picture)


What do you guys think I should do with my gram lights? Black? White? Keep them silver? I plasti'd half of them to get a visual..

Won't work man... I have 17x9's on coilovers but, I'd rub all over on stock suspension.

Yeah, just like the videos. I watched the dipyourcar.com videos for instructions but I did 5 coats instead of 4. I will have to redo mine because I forgot to spray the bottom of my letters, so there is still chrome exposed underneath. If you look at the pictures again you can see that on the top of the "m" there is chrome exposed too. Be really careful when you peel off the "m"!

I went with 17 x 8 with 225-45-17 ''ultra high performance'' all season Kumhos. The ride firms up a little and overall grip is definitely higher. My combo weighs exactly the same as the 16'' steel wheels and tires to the tenth of a pound. I weighed them on a digital scale while installing. Can't remember exact weight, it was something like 42.6 lbs. The wheels were 20 or 21lbs. I think the weight would make a difference, lighter the combo the better. Steering feel was a lot better, and a there was a lot more of a difference than I was expecting.

Once I get my ''RalliTEK Anti-Sway Bar Kit Impreza Non Turbo 2008-2011'' and ''RalliTEK HD Front Endlinks'' installed, handling should go up another large notch.

-they will ship out in about a week from now, can't wait... I might go with STI Pink springs after that, depending how it feels.
