Default Mud Flaps

I will post a picture of my car as soon as i get my camera working, but whats the general feeling on the Rally Armour UR mud flaps? I have tinted tail lights, and 20% on the windows. do you think its worth replacing the splash guards for the mud flaps? I am also looking for gold or black 16 wheels if anyone has any?
Thanks

Looks great.... does the fairing really cut down a lot of wind noise?

For me, the bars howl like CRAZY without the fairing. So yeah, it does cut down wind noise.

^^^Agreed...a fairing's the way to go without anything on the bars. I've found with a box or ski racks up there, the bars don't whistle without a fairing.

I will post pics of mine later. But the highest gas mileage I've had was 48.6mpg and I frequently hit about 36-37mpg.

I took a picture a few days back at 39.9. also have beaten a lot of cars with it.

It looks nice from a distance but up close there are imperfections. but if TRON taught me anything it was don't chase perfection. I have some EBC yellow stuff front brake pads coming soon, after that STI pink springs and getting some tires for my summer rims.

its the buffalo sabres logo with the subaru logo mixed in. i like it and have gotten a lot of compliments on it.

sooo this might be a dumb question, but CAN i do anything to my engine (intake, turbo ect) i know most of them arent worth much but i was wondering if i could do them. its an auto btw. what would be the best way (if possible) to get some better throttle response out of my car? thanks.

If you want better throttle response, get it tuned. You'll have to go open source becuase there is no longer an accessport available for the NA cars. There isn't much that can be done for power, but you can make some improvements in the way you use what power you do have.

I don't know if someone can remap the tranny response (maybe?) but you can always use the "manual shift" track if you need to change the shift points.

Not too sure where I can get a tune done. Someone told me to try an electric turbo kit cuz it costs way less. I don't see why a turbo wouldn't benefit me if I use the sport shift all the time. I could be wrong tho.

So, um, i wouldn't do that. Nothing to gain from that, really. That's basically a intake kit that runs on batteries... Have you checked into crank pully? They help with throttle response.

Picked up a set of wheels today.

16x7 +48 5x100 Rota Slip Stream
Steel Gray on one side, Royal Gunmetal on the other.
Tires are 205/55/16 Bridgestone Potenza RE92



If someone knows where I can find one Royal Gunmetal 16x7 Slip Stream, I would be very interested in getting it.
