It looks like complete and utter rice.

It doesn't say WRX either, which is what you have.

If you're worried about what other people think, don't get them. If you don't care, get them. You've already made up your mind and want it, so get it. WRX rocking an STI badge though.

Anyone know where to get a black, blank badge from?

Emergent, you can get the black wrx badge on subaru genuine parts or paint or there's a member on here that makes custom cf ones. Idk I see some with the them so I guess an Sti wing on a wrx is rice too?? And brembos? Or a proper aftermarket intercooler?? Ok. I feel it's okay if you have more power/upgrades or if you have a wrx/Sti hybrid. I won't be getting them yet because I don't have that many Sti parts on my wrx yet. Anyway thanks for the feedback. It be easier to own an EVO sometimes I swear lol

I will happily answer in a less aggressive way, it is not "rice" but is very much so in the "fake" category.

This has always been an interesting topic for Subaru's seeing a LOT of STi owners make their STi look closer to a wrx or a base model when the wrx and base model owners aim to look like an STI.

That all said do what YOU want with your car, there will ALWAYS be someone who dislikes it just make sure its not you. I nearly did a few things to my car and nearly didn't do a few things because of "popular opinion" but am very happy I built my car to make ME happy.

Carbon fiber looks nice, I just don't really like CF parts here or there. My end goal is to make it so you can't tell what the car is from the outside. The interior is going to be a little more difficult. I wonder if I can fill the WRX with bondo...

I personally don't care what badges are on your car. Posted it for those that would get butthurt about it because...it matters. To someone.

As long as it looks good, it looks good. Who cares what it is? When you try to sell it as an STI, then it would be a problem. WRX has cheaper insurance

not even close to what you're asking in the OP.

increase performance? Not rice.

just for looks or give the appearance of increased performance? Rice.

Either way, the brembos won't provide you with any more stopping power than the stock wrx brakes - the advantage of brembos is the larger rotor and better heat dispersion properties - neither of which will give you any benefit on a street driven car. But thats an entirely different topic.

All true but I think some of these arguments don't make any sense . I'm not putting any Sti badges on my wrx just to make that clear. Emergent, subaru sells the black oem wrx garnishes just like your factory garnish only in black. I personally don't see a problem with it if your car has a substantial amount of Sti (or aftermarket, usually better) parts added to it. Btw I see a lot of bugeyes/gds with Sti badging that embarrass sti's. Sti still does stand for subaru technical international, subaru in house tuning division. Same as ralliart for mitsu/trd-Toyota/nismo-Nissan

I thought you were referring to the black garnish this the STi on it like your link shows. If the only difference is a black background then that is a different story. I see NO issue putting a badge on a car that doesn't indicate anything on its own, just because it was only original on the JDM car.

Also all the older bugeyes, 2.5rs's, and other older models with the STi logo's I personally know the owners of have STi swaps in them. This is my experience from my friend base.

Jesus Christ...

No matter what you do to the WRX, it won't be an STI. But who gives a s**t? You want to put black WRX badges on your WRX so go do it. End of story.
