it has more of a rumble now since the resonator was taken off. but you can still hear a difference of sound with it on.

So the '08 trades color-matched mirrors for black door handles?

Congrats on a new car, but still a "pass" for me.

Bushings are awesome!!! The stock bushings should be illegal to drive with. I literally could bend the tranny mount 90 degrees and all the other rubber bushings under neath are ridiculous. These are upgrades you can feel for sure.

no those are GC 2.5RS rims, and only the exhaust was moved. I highly doubt they'll move the gas cap since all Subies I see have it on the right side

No, he meant that he thought all exhaust filler were on the opposite sides of the exhaust, just in case gas gets dumped during fueling, it doesn't hit that hot exhaust pipe and ignite, because it could. Its a safety concern.


I don't know which is more goofy looking, with or without the giant gapping hole in the hood.

its a law....

and the exhaust on the 08 is actually on the left side, but the muffler is sideways and the outlet is on the right side...making it look like the exhaust is on the right side....no safety/law problem

THATS RIGHT, I forgot! The exhaust on the 08's are similar in design to those on the Neons.
