On a scale of 1 to 10 how hard was it to trim and bend it? Its made out of the same material as the ra mud flaps. So I assume it should be easy. How does it attach?

I'd give it a 4. Pretty simple..held together by screws on the underside of the bumper.

Take bumper off/ flip upside down
Center lip on bumper and add screws going in to out.
Then just trim the ends 2-3 inches to match up to bumper

Polyurethane. I did mine with the bumper on. You did it by yourself daigledangle? I had a helping hand as I wanted to shape it well and sit as flush as possible while my friend screwed it into place. The holes on the top of the lip where its near the fog lights bugged me so I bent it as far as I could then screwed it into place. Seems to be a tough lip. I scraped it a few times and the bottom appears to be virtually unscathed.

Yep did it by myself. Wasn't too difficult once I figured out where I wanted it placed. I wanted it to stick out a little so it was slightly more aggressive. I plasti-dipped my front lip and its a champ. Scraped plenty of times and no damage done to the lip yet. Had to respray it once but thats about it.

Lots of good looking 2.5i's in this thread. Mine doesn't really compare to any of them...

I agree with you.
Tint, a drop, and those wheels painted (gold maybe?) would look amazing and could all be done fairly cheap.
The car looks good as it is though.

Thanks guys! I'm kind of afraid to lower my car though because of the roads around here. I've already scratched up under the bumper from pot holes.

I do really want to tint my windows, but the NH laws say you cannot tint front windows. Only rear side and back windows

Vermont laws are the same way, but we can have whatever we want on the back.
I had 5% on the sides (in the rear) and 20% on the back of my 06 2.5i Impreza wagon. I liked the look, but it was to dark.
I just did 20% on the rears in my WRX sedan, and it's dark enough to be tinted, but not dark enough to not be able to see out. Plus it's a subtle tint. I would do something like that. Even a light 35% would look good.

Your car looks really good Kwok!
Maybe just do 50% up front? I doubt you'd get noticed by the police for that. It's not dark visually but will keep UV light out and help keep your car cooler in the summers.

I did it, ~5 light coats of Duplicor PerfectMatch Sunburst Gold Metallic.

Thanks! I really like the way they came out. Not too gaudy and not too dull.
