Default 08 WRB Impreza....Just threw some D's on it :-)

Here are some pics of my 1 week old WRB Impreza. All I can say is thank god my 19" OZ Superleggeras from my 03 fit! The fenders are alot more filled in with 245/35/19 than the stock 205s.
The 08s are soooo much quieter in terms of motor and road noise, smoother, roomier, and a more comfortable ride. Obviously I had a downgrade in power from an 03 WRX to an 08 2.5i but for the city it's just fine. I just couldn't justify the +$10,000 addition in cost to go from a 2.5i sport pkg to a WRX for city driving. Admittedly some of the "rawness" is gone and the new car could arguably be "too refined" but I'm loving it so far!

Fixed. Thanks Photobucket!
Stock suspension BTW....looks alright IMHO. I may not bother lowering it...but the car could definitely use a rear swaybar! Gonna keep the mods to a minimum this time around! *ha*

Man, the 08's NEED 19's. I think they're too big on GD's but they look AWESOME on your car.

Wow that doesn't look over the top at all, the newer cars get the bigger rims they need it seems. The wheel gap is actually decent for stock compared to previous years, but that would look crazy slammed with a lip or something. Nice work!

Again, that looks so clean! If only you had a WRX though, the hood just looks so bare without the scoop, especially on the 08 models where the scoop is so wide, so aggressive!

suprisingly the first decent looking 08' is a 2.5i, especially without a drop.
