09 SSM Sedan 5 speed. I'm basically in Big Bend and work on the northside of Milwaukee. I see your Axis Racing sticker, Nick and Liz know me.

Haven't figured out what direction I want to go for suspension/wheels/etc but I have all winter to accumulate parts. A lot of minor plans as well like swapping the grille, tint, debadge/dechrome, stereo upgrades.

Sweet. Haha ya I rep local stickers. When I started off I did debadging, UELs, exhaust, HIDs and tint first. Then wheels, suspension, chrome, tails, etcetera. Are you planning on slamming it for a stanced look like mine was, or function?

Suspension-wise I'm looking more function than anything. My summer vehicle is my bike, so I'm not looking to go too low or anything being as it's my DD/Inclement weather vehicle. Just want it to look nice, drive nice and sound nice. Ha.

A few stickers...

How so? They're Urethane, a lot of the hardware is stainless where RallyArmor's is plastic and they appear to be mounted more securely.

Considering the design is very similar to RA, i'm not sure how these look like junk?

The best answer to the mud flap debate is to just not get any.

The material/color/shape just looks kinda crappy compared to RA or RB

I love the way cars look with them, not just subarus. I saw a Mini Cooper S with rally armors and it looked proper.

I'm in to see a car with those Rally tech flaps.

Also.... brand new H&R Street coilovers ordered. Guess this is my new project car even though I didn't want it to be. Now can't wait for spring to slam it with wheels and become a town street sweeper.

There's a bunch of pics on their site. They don't look any worse or better than RA, imo. They have a ton of different designs and colors too.

I think I'm more excited to see what people do with it! I'm glad there is a new body style. While I love the current body style it is a welcome change to me.

However it does look heavy and less nimble.

Def looks less nimble but doubt that it is...agree it will be interesting to see what gets done with it, tuner-wise...

Probably more nimble with its new suspension bits and repositioned clutch and front differential

Looks way less bulky to me. Front end is much more aggressive. 6 speed is awesome. Interior looks nice.

Looks terrible, pretty disappointed. No hatch, cvt option is not something I'll be interested in. I'll be more likely to just buy a cheap used sti hatch and rebuild it now.
