Default GC8andS2k's GC8 (and S2k)

A few pictures of my 99' 2.5RS and 08' Honda S2000 CR. Even though the S2000 is almost perfect and superior in every way, there's something about the Subaru that makes me love it so much more.

The S2k is bone stock and I plan to keep it that way.
There's also not much done to the Subaru except:
05' STi Brembo calipers with Fastwrx.com's rear caliper adaptors
Stoptech brake pads
DBA 4000 rotors
Technafit ss braided lines
Enkei RPF1's 17x8 +45
Goodyear Eagle GT 215/45/17
Work Lugs

A swap is inevitable, but because this (was) my DD and I drive a lot, I'm trying to make it as comfortable as possible first. Besides that, I hope to get a set of those infamous 04' STi BBS wheels for the winter...













Unfortunately, about 2 months ago, my dad totaled my Impreza with details not very clear up to this very day. The brakes and wheels I put on earlier survived with a minor rash to one of the wheels.

There was no hesitation that I needed another RS (I don't have it in me to daily drive the Honda). I picked up a 00' 4 door the weekend after. The only gripe was the body was in poor condition. It was originally BRP, but since it was going to get painted, I decided to go with aspen white. I picked up a Version VI wing and front lip and a set of JDM tails for a clean look.









Thanks for looking!

Understanding the implications with a 5x114 swap, I actually stayed 5x100. I used an adapter so that the 05' Brembo's just bolt on. Question is what to do when I finally decide to do an STi swap...

Maaco in Palatine. I had to strip the car myself, but their work was exceptional to say the least.

you need clear turn signals, turn indicators, and fender lights and rear spats

then your GC would be perfect. It's super clean as is, I'm digging the white paint job man. RPF1's ftw!
