Everyone told me, it's to much afford.

And swapping your $4k car will cost $12k, if you do it yourself. Then your car will be worth $4k to $6k. The WRX already has the goods and will be worth significantly more and be an easier sale than a swapped car, when it's time to move on.

This is right after I bought it, still looks the same except for oem fogs, rear wiper delete and a few dings & scratches. I will post some newer shots after tax (upgrade) season. I'm getting tint (finally), front lip and an sti oem cat back.

Looks good, I love that color red.
I used to have the same car, and it had a STi catback. I sounded really good in my opinion.
I see the car has VT plates, but your profile says AZ. Did you just buy the car out state, or did you move to VT?

^ I grew up in Montpelier, moved to AZ in '01 then back to VT in '09, traded my Civic for the Subie in '10 and moved back to AZ in '11.lol. The Subaru culture here is worlds apart from back home, I miss that.

Thanks! Mach V springs. They're great and give a nice drop and eliminate the huge stock gap. I would've gone lower, but wouldn't have been able to get in my driveway.

I love them! I wish they were more aggressive but they work. I bought them off Ebay. I have only had them for a little over a week now. They are 17x8 +48 with 225/45/17 Continental ExtremeContact DWS.

Yeah haha, I was going for that blacked out look. The lip is this one: http://www.baysonr.com/08_10_Subaru_...m0809-sti2.htm

Doesn't fit up exactly but with some creative installing.. well you'll figure it out

I love them. Decently priced, high quality (though I don't have any experience with very high end wheels), and they look great! I wouldn't hesitate if you like the way they look.

Right on, good setup. Really dig your car. It's done right. Sparco wheels look surprisingly good.
