Search around the site. Look in members gallery.

Seriously, it's not hard to find mods to do, and no one will hold your hand picking mods for your car.

Don't mod just to mod. Sometimes it can be too much. But as stated above, a quick search will reveal countless mods. There's even a thread dedicated to unique modifications.

From his mod list the picture I have in my head confirms it's already past that point.

Grill red pinstripe - That way when I tail gate, the pin stripe over the top of my car matches my grill color.
Custom badges - I had these custom made. Even I don't know what they look like.
De badge trunk - After I got the badges, I realize I made a terrible mistake, since I didn't know what they looked like before putting them on. So I took them off.
Coilovers - Not sure what brand, but they look sweet in my back seat.
Wheels - Still not sure of the brand or size. My tires don't fit, so I've been sticking to rail road tracks.
Wind reflectors - These things are sweet! I mounted them on all 4 doors and the roof!!
Blacked headlights - I went total DIY and just used matte black spray paint. After 22 coats, I can't even see the lights. It's awesome.
Painted interior - Easiest mod ever. You know those paintball grenades? Just used a few of those inside. Easy Peasy!
Ap3 - It's a prototype Honda S2000. You probably haven't heard of it yet.
Intake with box - Plywood works wonders
.
License Plate overlays - The hardest part was to keep the potato chips from getting crushed.

Anyone have any diy idea i should do next?
I know I already posted the speed holes as an option, but I couldn't let this slide.
Your "What I've done so far" list is frightful.

You should get a sweet set of HIDs off ebay, actually, get three - one for the lows, highs and fogs. But don't get any of the lame temperatures, get something like 30000k.

Also, a tow hook. Def need a tow hook. Then, some small stuffed animal to hang from it. I reccomend spongebob.

Then, last but def not least - get yourself some stickers. The bigger the better.

SNTRL sticker on the windshield. Google them. Nobody knows what the letters mean, but man, it's a way of life, I say. A way of life.

It is better to rice it and have good looking car than go all in on racing performance parts like you guys are doing and then driving around the town 45mph. What is the point of having race car if you cant race it? Keep buying parts you cant use just so you can say you have it.

What about the people who spend money on performance parts AND goto the track?

And having "rice" and "having it look good" doesn't go together.

Hey man we're just busting your balls. It's you're car and you can do what you want with it. However people here would have rather have spent that money on making the car drive better then 'look' better and that's subjective because ricing is not very Comon in the sti crowd.

Enjoy your car but just know with the money you spent on cosmetics you could have probaly knocked out another 60 hp out of that car.

I would rebadge it with the biggest Porsche style 'turbo' badge you can find. +5HP just for the badge.

The philosophy is there, the execution is poor.

Better to have a very reliable car that suits your needs, with really pretty wheels, that looks nice, and since it only reaches 75 mph for all reasonable speed limits, it'll be slow and economical too!


C/N: OP sells STi because it's only driven on street roads.
