Yep, I'm in the process of that. Definitely want black rims tho - I've seen a few I like, but not crazy about any of the Subaru rims.

I tried it, but i gave up right before the step of cutting the plastic. Looks a bit too risky, so I just bought one from an STI.

Yupp, but you have to take a dremel to cut out the ugly middle of the main piece of the grill.

Yes, I modded my front mesh grill. It was pretty easy used a dremal, and, well that was about it. IDK if this is what you where looking for but here you go, also to give you a heads up the emblem plastic is being held by screws just an FYI.

That can't be a 2.5i grill. The top piece isn't right?

Haven't cut the grill yet just getting the mesh right and see if I even like my handy work. Lol if I do I'm thinking I'll leave it either the white or color match it



Edit...then again if I do it black it might hide the little imperfections

No. Cai has uneven air flow no matter what.

You need to leave a little extra space to wedge it between the separate pieces of the grill. And, I'd decimals plastidiping the mesh because it withstands rocks and chipping unlike spray paint!

EDIT: I'd RECOMMEND not decimals

Hey how many cranks does it usually take for your cars to turn over? Takes me like 5, is that normal?

Cause I always hear other cars crank twice and it starts
