Where are you located? I found mine for that price last year. Better to pick one up in your area 'cause shipping can be expensive and a PITA for the seller.

Depending on shipping, like $30-$40 if shipping isn't too wild. And on topic, Will, your car looks great as always.

Love that sedan Will, are you lowered on springs or a coilover setup?

Meanwhile, first couple decent shots of mine from a cruise with a some friends last week.







And my favorite:


I'd love some ideas/criticism on the car or photography

Amazing looking car. Makes me miss my stockers a bit haha. I've been searching for a wing so long! How much was that? And did you plastidip the trunk trim? Looks good.

It is a coilover setup with other whiteline alignment parts and bushings, still have room to go lower but I have people in my car all the time. Girlfriend and family and friends so still needs to be practical. Was debating a long time on whether to do springs or coilover, even though springs were cheaper I feel in the long run and the number of kilometres I travel daily coilover was more suited for me.

Plus I can spend time tweaking the perfect height for myself or when I go long distance!

My wing comes standard on our RS models, the trunk trim is a SPT Carbon Piece

Just enjoying a brunch with a mate Can you spot the letters "SPT"?

Saw this on pass time last night and figured I would share it here. It was a sticker on the back of a Chevy Nova or Camaro (I don't remember which)

Sup sooby bros

I'm Andy and I just recently purchased my first car. I've been in Love with the Impreza for a long time, and it was the only car that I was after. My dreams came true and I landed this beauty. The previous owners took really good care of her so it's pretty mint exterior and interior. They also spray painted the stock rims a nice black, and added a front lip.

Any Suggestions or Tips on what I could get done or do to my car to make it more amazing?

^ Suspension. Do all your suspension work and then focus on other stuff.

Welcome to club! My advice would to black your headlight housings out, add side skirts, and tint your windows!

Interesting suggestions... Tints are a most I agree, but not sure if I wanna touch the headlights lol I just like how they look too much stock.

A new Suspension sounds pretty nice, but what exactly do you mean by that. Coilovers from Springs or a whole new suspension?

Larger sway bars, lower/stiffer strings, upgraded struts to support the springs. Larger/wider wheels.

It's a seibon carbon product. The wing itself was about 450 I think (check their website) but if you're looking to do it be aware you need an STi 3rd brake light and washer sprayer cap. The light is expensive and I had a hard time figuring out what piece was needed for the cap. I have the part number now though. The trunk trim is stock, they were painted on the 11's. Not sure what year that started though. The stockers are more just for winter fun, I've got other wider wheels for the summer.

Their are quite a few on here, check out the hawkeye thread in the member's gallery.
In addition to what's already been said, suspension i.e. coilovers or lowering springs can benefit both the look and handling performance of your car (in case you didnt know). What do you plan do with this car? I assume its a daily driver?

Annnnnd I just changed my mind. A great aesthetic upgrade, but not for over 500 bucks. Thanks for the info though.
