Agreed. at least the area where I am from If I go more than an inch drop then I could definitely get stuck a couple places as well as scrape everywhere

looking for some opinions.
i have an 06 impreza i have made some changes, wheels and intake and would like an exhaust and have it lowered. but my car is at 195 000 km (121 000 miles) do you think i should still be putting money into this or save for a whole other car?

I feel you on the no gap, but it looks good either way. Low looks clean and sleek, what you have looks mean I think with more meat it would be perfect. Regardless, very nice!

Is that photoshopped gold paint? If not, is it rattle canned? Just wondering, something looks weird.

Depends on condition. If it was very well maintained, and looks almost perfect and runs perfect, but just has the high mileage, I'd keep it until it gets too expensive to keep it running, like a big repair bill just doesn't make sense to pay because you could put that $$ on a new car, etc..

If you like the car, keep it, just know that you won't ever get a ton of cash when you sell it eventually. Having a nice car that still looks and runs great, with no monthly car payment- is a beautiful thing!

If it's starting to rust anywhere, has cosmetic problems that really bug you, has a beat up interior, is costing you a lot in repairs, etc... just save for a newer car that you would enjoy more. Then put the customization $$ toward your new car and plan on keeping the new one for a long time if you like it..

Mileage is just a number.. condition is everything. The time that isn't true is when you get hit and car is totalled- then insurance co can use that number to rape you.

120k miles isn't THAT much for a well looked after, relatively newer Subaru. If it's maintained and not abused, it could go for another 100k miles and not cost too much to keep it running.

I bought my '09 new (first bran new car) in '09. Now it has 27k miles, and I plan on keeping it for a very long time, long after it's paid off in a few years.

the car has been taken care of really well no rust and does run great. i just have a friend thats stressing over 150km (93200 miles) but then again it is a tiburon. i guess i gotta look at it as just a number like you said run fine so cant complain.
thanks for your opinion

If it's the v6 Tiburon don't worry! My 01 Santa Fe (same motor) went 200k when I traded it in, and was still going!

Also, I beat the thing so hard for 40k miles. Changed the oil twice (although it didn't burn any between the 20k intervals), drove it hard, off road with Jeeps in it, etc... Got it for $500 and needed $300 in parts to be streetable again and I traded it for $1500 towards my Subie! which I change oil in every 5k with synthetic religiously and rarely drive it hard

Yeah I have a lot of faith in my car. I think if treated well, that 2.5L engine is bullet proof.
