I would never go back to stock . These are the only one he has. I'm still not totally sure about them. Some days I love 'em, some days I don't. We'll have to see once I get the car. Forester guys seem to love them though. I'm open to suggestions...

Congrats. Just think, you coulda spent all this cheese modding that LGT and it wouldn't have ever been as fast as that beast you got there. Paint the rims black and your done. I'm biased on rim color of course.

ha... I put up a feeler thread on subaruforester.org

I don't know... I am very undecided about them. I definitely don't hate them at all, but I always saw me driving a forester w/ BBS Sti takeoffs.

Yeah... I'm very happy w/ my personal decision to switch cars. I think this is going to work way better for me.

I love those damn wheels. I think the sparcos look sick! I may see some type of trade in the future if you don't like them.

I have Bronze Rota Actions in all their discontinued glory. I'd like to see a photoshop to see what yours would look like on mine.

That FXT is sexy. Had I not bought my WRX 10 months ago, I would have been on that.

I think the actions are rip off of advan rc2's if you wanna see them alittle better. Are the sparco's 17's or 18's?

They're 18's. I'm not sure if your rims are my style... I'll stay in touch. I think I'm looking for something more then 5-spokes.

No prob bob. But if you don't have any luck than mine might be the lesser of 2 evils for you.

Congrats on the soon to be Forester. It's the new trend apparently.

Not sure about the rims. Spoke pattern is ok. I think it's the big shiny centers that's killing it for me. I think I'd like them better if the spokes were longer.

EXACTLY. That's the part that I'm hung up on. I just keep staring at them, liking them one minute, and noticing that big shiny center the next...

I wish there was something to do to the center cap that would change the look a little... But I don't know how that would look, and I can't ruin perfectly good wheels.

BTW, What do you guys think about painting the mirrors and C-Pillar to match the car?

Scoop is being swapped back to the stocker as soon as I arrive back in Hampstead tomorrow. Do you have those to swap, or are you just suggesting that I get them?

I have a feeler going for the wheels on the Forester forums.. I don't know if I should waste my time on nasioc... I don't think most impreza owners would want these wheels... Maybe I am wrong...

xcntrk, yeah they look familiar. You know I hounded you for a few months before you would let them go. After seeing that guy on the forester forums w/ the 04 fxt w/ the 07 front end on it that had these same sparcos, I have wanted them ever since. Just not exactly sure how they would look on the blue wag.
