Looks great man! I'm not a fan of how much the front wheels poke out, but like you said, I think more negative camber will fix that Great looking car, and love the quad tip!

450whp- $5000 in mods
N1- $600 in mods
Making little kids turn their heads in awe- priceless

Of course, the little ones would love a ride in a 450whp car even more, but don't go trying to lure kids you don't know into your car

3.5" exhaust tips only, not the muffler(s). With a little modification, they simply slip over and hold tightly against the OEM tips. No need for welding or bolts. I had these on my old G35 for years with the same mounting method.

Thanks Shipman! Funny you mention overlays haha I attempted them and couldn't get around the sides. I think I'm just going to have them redone professionally. I left the smoked part on for a change for the time being. Edit* Noticed MaddMax did the same lol! Love the silver man!

Look for a DIY in the interior/exterior forum within the next day or two. It takes a matter of 2 minutes a tip to mod them to fit the WRX. You then simply push them on. The tips are from the 07+ Altima 2.5 (dual exhaust cars) and you can find them online at more Nissan parts website for about $25-28/ea. They're stainless, rolled edge, and a slight slash cut. They look perfect on the car. Now if I could just do a mod to introduce just like 20% exhaust sound at all rpms, it would be perfect.

so you want an exhaust that makes adults think you are an immature db and impresses little kids? is that what you are trying to say here because that's what it seems like..lol

I mean driving around with a fart cannon on your car only appeals to a very limited range of people. 1. Yourself when you aren't driving on the highway 2. teenagers who know your car from forza/gran turismo 3. honda ricers who wish they had a wrx 4. the type of WRX owners who think hella supertones, BOV, mudflaps(for a car that never sees mud) and of course a 3" catback are the proper first mods.

Personally I would probably be thrilled if a WRX with N1 drove by me, I just wouldn't want to attract that much attention to myself

another pointless post by me..lol

off topic, does stock sti suspension just bolt right up to our cars and if so is it a big improvement over WRX stock suspension...im kind of sick of being dropped in this area with our awful roads..lol

haha thats actually pretty true... no rattles, the suspension is definitively more solid, more comfortable overall. My WRX is the only other car I've ever driven that is stick but the R's clutch seems lighter. It seemed impossible to stall haha.

i just don't care as much about what other "adults" think of me. i'm 27 and make a big boy salary after choosing to endure college and graduate school. it's finally my time to play. so, when you read this, just know that the person that helped develop that little processor in the computer you're typing on is wearing his "awesome possum" shirt today.

what part of the suspension are you talking about? think the rear struts are interchangeable, fronts are not.

It better feel more solid seeing that it weighs about 200lbs more and costs $11K more than a Limited WRX which is quicker and faster

I'm 22, I don't earn much, and I was wounded in combat action in Afghanistan before I could legally order a drink. So, while you're sitting there trying to come up with a witty response utilizing that fancy processor in the computer you're typing on know this... Nobody cares. You could be the winner of a Nobel Peace prize for some ridiculous development in "processors" and at the end of the day you're still just a D-bag with a loud car to most pedestrians. Oh, btw, thank you for helping to develop the processor in my laptop, and you're welcome for the protection of the freedom that has enabled you to endure that harsh education to do so. Not entirely sure why that rubbed me the wrong way.

In light of the fact this is a gallery, here:
