On the regular Impreza one? It doesn't sit flush because it's not flared enough. There's a tiny gap with that one.

That I do know, so the gap exists because the base of the antenna is not flared enough and not that the antenna is not screwed in enough due to the short set screw?

Correct. The BRZ one fits perfectly though.

So long story short getting a longer set screw would not help matters and make the antenna and base fit flusher? This sucks, damn you Perrin!

Other alternative is the vg sharkfin. Comes painted in oem colors and is actually functional unlike ebay sharkfin covers.
Google visual garage sharkfin. Ive heard on here somewhere the 2011 impreza option fits our cars.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've actually checked the vg sharkfin out (they're located near where I live) and I too can confirm the 2011 option fits our cars. However, I didn't really like the look of a sharkfin on a hatchback, it looks kind of funny, in my opinion it's more of a sedan thing.

This is my new baby. Got it a few months ago, came with everything but the spoiler. I never thought I'd be driving a red car, but at the time it was one of the only unsold ones in CT so I jumped on it. It's definitely grown on me a lot though

Alright guys, RS-R got springs for our cars. Just call Ben @ rsr and please tell them Mark told you about it. They do have coil covers too. He just ordered mine coming from Japan. Maybe we could all get a better price if we get a bunch. Pic on left is springs and coil over on the right.

That looks good! That's the first pic of a 5 door that made me wish I would not of for a 4 door.

Between those two, I like the one that's higher. The lower one is too low for my taste. I've never cared for the low-rider look, and I have to believe that any driveway lip or speed bump would cause problems for a car that low.

IMHO

Totally agree that's why I just ordered the spring instead of the coil over. My wheels are 18x8.5 and anything lower there will be rubbing issues and not the one to roll my fender either.

If anything I would go with the springs too as well. How much is the drop?

Who here purchased window tinting after buying their impreza? How much did you pay? Thanks! I'm interested in a tint and wondering what a good price is for tint and labor, and type.
