Looks great! My favorite color ever.

Don't ruin it with Tein S Techs please. Get some Epic Engineering springs!

Do it once, do it right. Don't subject yourself to the crap handling and lack of suspension travel the cheap suspension setups will give you.

I loved my prodrive springs on my 02, best ride for springs I felt on any wrx I ridden in (except lancelucas's wagon since he had a little bit more suspension work). They work with OEM struts which was the selling point since my struts were in good condition when I put the springs on. Ride height was perfect as well as all the other great handling characteristics that should come with a good spring.

Decided I'm going to update this thread instead of starting another so since the last pictures i have removed my tow hook, got some tanabe gf210 lowering springs, and some basic RA mud flaps. Also just got my car back from the body shop and i had to get my whole front end pretty much replaced so fresh paint and new headlights! Let me know what you guys think!




For future mods I'm going to get STi splitters and get an access port and hopefully be stage 2 by mid summer.

Car looks great dude. The flaps make it look much better and give it so much more personality in my opinion. Love the red also. Good luck with it!
