The OEM one is ABS plastic and come pre-drilled for the clips on the opt portion of the gril with the tabs on the lower part of the grill to clip on to the bumper. It's a basic bolt on with OEM fitment as you would expect an OEM part would be

Well there you have it. If you want higher quality, price, but do barely any work go with the OEM. If you are on a budget, the C-Mod Grille is the best substitute out there that I know of thus far.

hi sharco

is the grill made of carbon fiber or fiberglass? thanks!

**EDIT** NEVERMIND...found it. it says its fiber glass (which is what i thought) but saw you post it was hard cutting through carbon fiber.

"This is an aftermarket part.
It is made of high quality fiberglass.
Strong and lightweight.
Finished with smooth surface in black.
Painting is required.
The metal mesh is painted in black.
Mounted and removable.
It provides better airflow to the engine bay
and protects the radiator.
It has no pre-drilled mounting holes.
Modifications may be required
to customize the fitment.
Easy installation."

I think the front deflector helps makes it look a little more agressive, i also have the window guards and one for the moonroof (but not installed).

for those who tinted all their windows, how much are you guys paying for your tint (includes all the small windows i presume or was that extra)? just trying to see how much i should paying for it...ive heard some rip off stories bc of the damn tiny windows by the doors. also what type of tint (regular or ceramic etc)

Thanks!

I need those wheels.

I don't think that's a members car. Its owned by some Canadian shop probably, since it looks like CDM headlights and rear wiper.

And that the entire lip that goes around the whole car is crazy expensive. Pretty sure it's JDM.

dang it if not member car....been looking for front lip...might get that strake/front underspoiler thing instead...that STI front lip is too much for that piece (not even carbon fiber or anything fancy like that).

just got the front bumper repainted since I have SWP the front bumper was yellowing (might just be a paint issue on the plastic bumper) since even new cars were showing some discoloration or differences...had the corporate rep take a look and they authorized a repaint of my bumper and now its good as new. they even repainted scrapes my brother caused when he took a driveway too quick and steep. FTW!

also took off the ez lip, btw that thing is not easy to take off esp after being on there for months....the 3m double sticky does not want to come off (so for those wondering if it will fall off, it wont) but it will be a pain to take off since its breaks and you'll have to peel the left over pieces. So i am not putting that thing back on thats for sure. now i really need a lip. looks naked without something.

That's the Chargespeed Bottom Line kit for the Impreza 5dr and 4dr here are the links

http://www.chargespeed.com/english/impreza-gp-e1.htm

Those wheels on the black 4 dr are Work Emotion CR KAI, but you can find plenty of replicas of those for example Rota Torques or Drag DR-31

Here's a picture of me with a sign that I found in PA!

Here's a video of my favorite driving loop! It's just outside of Pittsburgh PA. It's a relatively mild lap, but the roads... they're so good.

Is your car stock? Sounds like your exaust is aftermarket.

Thanks! It's almost entirely stock, but I have the WRX wheels, wrapped in Falken Azenis, and I have an audio system waiting to be installed. I want to put sway bars, different lugs as mine are red, but the finish wore off almost immediately , and a different shift knob.

Looks and sounds great, Hopscotch! I can't put my finger on it... but there's just something I love about your car... the color... the wheels... Oh well. I'll think of it eventually!

Y'know Reverend, I was thinking the same thing about your car! Funny how that works eh? Do any of you folks have recommendations for quality lug nuts? The finish on mine wore off almost immediately and I'm pretty pissed about it. I'd like some bright red ones.
