Nope! I like the unique idea of it, but it does looks really tacky IMO.
I know these are for the front headlights and not the emblem but I would much rather get these instead http://www.fastwrx.com/coledtusibu.html

A friend of mine has those, they're an awesome product and look great with HID's.

I may have to go to this dealer and tell them how much a disgrace this vehicle is.
Full craigslist ad here: http://denver.craigslist.org/ctd/3384652309.html

Look at this rear view though! LOL at wrx badge and those idiotic shark fin spoiler things on the roof.. WTF are they thinking with all the horrible pin stripes everywhere? And that stupid plastic rib on the front to "simulate" a spoiler.. LOL- just freaking awful.. It's like it's a joke on purpose to try to be funny or something, but it's real!



Just ridiculous..




It's actually a really nice 2.5i other than all that crap all over it.. and the fact that it is an auto.. If it was a 5 speed it would be great as far as 2.5i's go.

Should throw those light up badges on that 2.5i with the fake hood scoop and red pinstripes. Would fit right in!

What about after installation? Is a tune after installation necessary? And if so what should I look for in terms of a tuning place?

No, you don't need a tune, just bolt them on and enjoy that Subaru rumble!

Do 9in wide wheels with a +35-+42 offset stick out past the fenders? Just wondering also no spacers.

+35 will (at stock height with no camber) not sure about +42 but I have 18x8.5 +35 and they stuck out until I lowered the car on coilovers and have about 2.5 deg neg camber.

This. I think the +35 will poke at stock ride height. I have 17x8+35 and I have maybe about a half inch left before they are perfectly flush on a minimal drop.

It'll sit flush up front on the lower offset side and the rear will poke slightly.

Okay good lol I was a bit worried because I want as little poke as possible. At the same time I want a lower offset. Lastly a 235 on a 9in rim wouldnt create much of a stretched look would it? As im trying to avoid that too. Thanks for all the helpz!!

The stretch would be extremely negligible. What suspension are you on?

No tune required, our ECU works works like AI, to an extent. Our computers will learn and make slight adjustments. My car idled a little low when coming to a stop on clutch in. But after 20 min of driving I started seeing better mpg numbers than stock. I also have a magnaflow CBE that I installed same time as headers.

Sweet! Look for an 8.5 wide with an offset of 35+ You should be able to fit those with a 235 tire, without modding the fenders.

And might I also ask where you guys got it from. I was looking at subaru genuine parts, but the price for unpainted is outrageous.

Your better off ordering the rallisport racing header. Direct bolt on for any 2.5i 06+ I personally have these and you will not be disappointed.

There is also a wicked thread,

Will these headers bolt up direct to the stock pipe?
