I think touch up paint its your best bet. You could plastidip it first then paint (although peeling it would be a PITA). I just dont like that in most pics, you cant even see the lip. My lip gets banged up every day. The roads here are unforgiving.

Embrace it! Haha. Seems like every endeavor I wish to partake in, my parents always have something to say. Recently I told them I wanted to get a motorcycle and all they could say was to buy a coffin along with the bike When I lowered my car, I didn't hear the end of it

Haha. Very true, but its word from the wise. I got in the same thing once I threw on a CBE on the wrx.

You still have your outback? Idk but if it were me, I'd experiement on modding parts that I know I'd have a spare just in case I f*ck up haha. Headlights seem to be a good start

Yup, its my moms and my daily.

LOL Thats a good plan, but most asthetic things I want to do aren't backwards compatible. Such as Fog covers, and the side vents etc.

But yes, headlights are a good idea.

How'd that tranmission mount thing go? If I remember thats what started it all. Wish the subie love was spread more better around here. 90% of all encounters here are all douchebags trying to prove who has bigger balls and a suburu that quickly died out. Even at a car show, 150+ cars and I was the only subie....damn you Hondas!!

Well we brought it back to the shop we bought the car from, and they kind of fixed it. That said you can still feel the transmission move back and forth, so at the moment we are just driving the car short range and using it untill it the cost to fix the issue is greater than owning it. Or if the transmission just dies/falls out lol

I definitely feel it. Once i got my WRX, kids at my school constantly kept asking if i wanted to race them, and then a few weeks later, one kid got a WRX and ALWAYS shows me up which is annoying as hell, because i'll come home from a meet or gym or friends house at midnight and somehow this kid find me and just does pulls as If i was trying to race him... I really hope his motor blows or he crashes it.... Dang, thats horrible. No meets out in Guam?

That would be weird if your trying to put it in gear and theres no shift knob to grab haha. Even me too! Theres this 11' WRX that sees me on the daily with a HUGE STI sticker on the back glass with a clear WRX badge that always tries to wail on it every time I see it. I just shake my head and drive regularly. Subaru scene was up for awhile and then it just seemed like everyone had a sudden death lol. Subarus have boomed a lot but I show the love and get none back. Its mostly guys with snapbacks and fitted hats (although I wear those too) that I see around. I did meet a girl with an STI (not the dirty kind ) that wanted to show the love as I feel. Destiny? Maybe????? Haha

Tell me about it.

On another note, me wants moar power... saving up for an A5 or S6...or STi.

This new indoor gokart track opened up by me. FUN FUN STUFF at 50mph. I was top 100 racers after 2 runs until I got bumped off the other day.


Savannah after a wash....and rain...SIGH.
Lowered on Swift Springs + WRX Struts.
Yea, my "lip" is not looking so sturdy anymore .


...and this happened. I missed the 33333 so I got the next best thing.

Got my report back from blackstone labs, I guess the HG leak I was worried about is nothing to be concerned about. Also had a few subaru techs give the ok from what they could see.

Good to hear!

Might wanna edit out your address. I already sent you 117 different magazine subscriptions and one large box labeled discrete...if it's vibrating by the time it gets there...well, the fun starts early right?
