If you don't want to keep your oem struts, koni inserts with springs are cheaper than bc's coils thats a good plan though.

This is kind of an odd post/request but, about 6 months ago, I traded in my 08' 2.5i for a 2012 wrx. I was wondering if the new owner posts on here? It was my first car and even though i LOVE my new wrx, it would be really cool to see what the new owner has done to it. if you know the new owner or ARE the new owner, shoot me a PM so we can shoot the breeze

this was one of the last pics I took before I traded it in, I gave it to the dealer exactly as you see it below, Mastro Subaru of Sanford FL





For those of you guys who I used to chat with, this is my new WRX today, enjoying it so far!

I have the same color of 2.5i and I soon hope to get a silver WRX or Sti as well!

Both look great!

Replace that headunit already! Lol.
Plus you should replace your oem struts/shocks with aftermarket ones
I'm also interested to hear what the specs and what this custom header looks like...
One thing is for sure is please take those stripes off. Grant it they look okay and straight but it makes it ricey as f*ck!

I actually get A LOT of compliments on them lol especially from the my local subaru group. But hey, I like em. And as far as the struts go If i can find a set of 09+ struts I will buy them but stock struts should be fine with such a minimal drop.

btw fender stripes were founded back when muscle cars were raced as teams and they used the stripes to identify teammates. i just saw a brand new silver vette the other day with red ones. would you tell him his car looks "ricey as F*ck" right off the assesmbly line? lol

I was still complimenting them and im glad other people give you compliments too but I'm just saying people will always have different opinions(I'm sure you already knew that). And of course camaros, challengers/chargers, and mustangs all had some variation of stripes at one point. Our NA imprezas are honestly not meant to be performance as much as you or I want them to be haha. Just curious, are the stripes only on the drivers side or both sides?
