This was the one for the black car though. Notice the outside edge is black. Would you recommend silver or black?

Sucks. I had to pay a lot for my single set. I wanted a group buy but it wasnt fully confirmed for sedans till I put them on.

That grill with the black trim actually looks somewhat similar to the WRX concept, which I think looks really good. I have DGM so I have a similar look on a dark car

I would go with silver. Because I have plenty of plastidip so I could switch back and forth. The black looks good too. Go with what you like.

I paid for shipping from Japan to Mass and it totaled $404. If I would have known that 08 WRX springs fit I could've saved $ 200.

Anyways heres the car on my wheels needs a fender roll for sure to get it to go anywhere.

Warning. Warning.

18x8 +35 on 225/40/18 rubs. I just mounted my rims and to my surprised, it rubbed. I'm gonna have to roll my fenders now. Boo. Getting it done this Saturday. On the plus side, the stance looked really good though.

I got mine from Lamin-X before they had pre-cut for our new Imprezas. Instead, I bought one 4"x8" sheet, cut it in half, applied it, and then cut off the excess with a sharp x-acto knife. Worked perfectly. I don't know if Lamin-X has since come out with pre-cut material; I'm guessing they have.

When I applied pre-cut Lamin-X on my TDI, that was actually harder to install because it was pre-cut. You had to get the alignment perfect, since there was no extra material.

So as long as you don't mind using an x-acto, the sheet approach might actually be easier.

I wonder if this combo would rub on a hatch or is it exactly the same as a sedan? Arent our front fenders lipless, almost already rolled? Is it rubbing in the front or rear? Chime in anyone with ideas...thanks.
