I do like it compared to the Subaru offering but the Perrin is also another like $300 lol.
This is where I ordered my sway bar from. Can also order them from ebay around the same price but amazon is hassle free IMO.

I guess but I like the look of the subtle flapping in the wind when you get on the gas, hard turns, etc.

Yep, hopefully i can get the wheels done this weekend. Cant wait.

Got some other stuff waiting too and it needs to be detailed desperately.

^ Great link on the Perrin Sway thanks! Are you upgrading your endlinks as well and if so what are you getting and from where. I kinda see where the big price from Perrin comes direct - it includes upgraded end links. Thought I see other endlinks are available at a more reasonable price from like Cusco.

Anyway - here's some pics of my car I just got done washing and giving it a spray of Poorboys Spray and Gloss. Makes the wheels look a little better and finally the metallic flakes are popping again, yay winter is over!





Sorry guys I get pic happy at times lol! Who doesn't love pics though

Finally scored my new camera. Upped from the Nikon D60 to a Canon 60D. Pics once I get back from vacation. Already, just on a trial run, the camera is incredible.

Something about Canon that just screams quality when it comes to photography!

The D60 was great, but it's old technology by now. This 60D is in a whole other league. Can't wait to get full shoots on soon..

Can someone link me the coilover/springs that were posted on here if they can find them? They were off some Asian site unless there on another site now. I'm looking for coilovers

Also has anyone tried doing like a bolt on fender flare? Personal after just selling my ute and having it dropped and stanched it looked hella mean, I reckon my new 2012 hatchback would look aggressive as hell with some stance work

In the same sense, I'd think a black Crosstrek with coilovers would look dope. Stanced and wide.

They made a Bugeye in 2000?
Built in 2000 yeah they did though it's my 01 spec I guess.

I mean a sporty looking one, comparing the 2011 impreza to the 2011 wrx.
The Impreza looks like an older mazda 3 where as the wider body changes it entirely.
Clearly there's no stock way of getting a sportier look until the next WRX/STI comes out but after market bits and what not?

I just took some really strong meds so I'm having trouble keeping my train of thought but you get what I'm saying yeah? I'm not trying to be a dick, if you love the way it looks now then that's great but over the last few years I've been liking subaru's designs less and less so I want to see what I'm missing

Have you been able to find dash covers for the 2012-2013 models? I have a new one and I'm having a hell of a hard time finding a dash cover.

Does the front strut tower do much for the steering feel and turn in? Right now the car is understeering a little on entry and neutral to oversteer on exist of corners, and I'd like to cure the understeer on entry. Can't decide of the 22mm sway bar or strut tower brace are a better idea... I have the 19mm rear sway bar on there right now.
