I bought these too, they are really nice. I finished them up with a file, they were a little rough around the edges. I have a bunch of dynamat and some very nice Alpine door speakers (Alpine SPR-60 6-1/2" 2-Way Type-R Series) waiting to be installed sometime - on some nice day, in the future.. But my Polks are doing the job very well until then.

Was yours a direct plug and play or did you have to solder?

I just bought a spoiler and my car has one connection with the green/white wire, but the spoiler has the connector with a green wire and a separate white wire.

@Fendyman, Love the car! One thing I would suggest, Plastidip/Paint your grill black. The red stripe clashes with the silver. We have a lot of similar mods!

But yes, tell us more about your DIY rear diffuser.

The spoiler/wing I picked up was missing the 3rd brake light...
I found an OEM 06 Impreza/WRX sedan spoiler/wing & the 3rd brake light is a PERFECT match.

There should be 2 wires: green & white... probably the connector @ spoiler was cut. I guess you can use the old spoiler's connector.

Thanks... your car looks great, too.

I thought about painting it black but I decided to leave it silver to match my summer wheels.

I can't tell from ur pics... Are the OZ 16" or 15"?

P.S. You NEED to paint that chrome hatch trim.

Thanks!

Chrome hatch trim will be done shortly, I ran out of plastidip.

17x8 OZ Superleggeras in 225 50/17.

So it's 4 or 5 shark fins? Any specifics as to the type to look for?
Can you please post close up pictures.
Thanks in advance!

Koni Sport Yellows

I was able to get them for $630.50 shipped. Installation may take about 3 hours depending on what you're doing for springs. Me and a friend will be doing the install. A shop may charge as much as $300 just to install them. And you have to hack up you stock struts for these.

I think you need to pay more attention, he doesn't state the name brand or the cost of the struts shown in the picture.

Hacking up as in cutting and welding, or just reusing parts from stocks? I swapped out my springs not to long ago, it's not to hard. I did it alone In about 2.5 hours. I'm somewhat familiar with the stock struts.

No, he didn't but the pic says it all... it's yellow & 'Koni' on it.
FYI, there aren't many shock/strut options for 3G Impreza.
