Put on a painted CF STi style scoop today but not sure if I like it or not yet. It was super cheap and my friend painted it free at his body shop.

I know, it is carbon fiber and taller than a stock STI. These are the reasons I am not sure if I like it or not. I just put it on to test it out and it is sitting in my garage now.

11 wrx rims are 17.57's.

I had a set on my 2.5i. Unfortunately I didn't have a spare set when I traded it in for the xt sports. But the spec c rims look better.

Actually 2011 Wrx wheels are 17x8 +53 with 235/45/17 Dunlops. I have to run a 3mm spacer to make them clear the struts.

Oh Davey... It looks awesome! Just tinted my fogs last weekend, and got the windows done last week. Looks great as usual man.

You missed some chrome Dave, around the fog lights. I do like the stock grill painted so that it's not all shiny and flashy. I just bought the sports grill and front lip for our 2009 and added some Hella Supertones.

I say black out the headlights it looks really good on the OBP.

All the OBP FXTs need to black out their headlights. Trust me it's worth it. Not hard to do at all either.

That's next on my list. A friend and I were going to do that the other day and just replaced the sorry excuse for speakers from the factory.

Nice I love my SH OBP FXT with the black out head lights. I want to get rid of all the chrome shiny pieces off the exterior.

Yeah, the door handles are looking a little out of place!

Anyway, I've wanted to do the headlights for a long time, but just to afraid to crack them open. Now I finally have a friend who's done it before and he's going to help. Hopefully in the next week or so it'll be done!

Looks like the previous owner must of ripped the lip off of mine..somehow. You can see where it ripped out the mounting hardware.

I'm guessing they ran something over, since they also replaced the black headlight assembly with a new chrome one.

Anyone know where I can find a 08 xt sports drivers side headlight in black?
