Thats some nice scenery you get to see everyday.

Your car looks great with the retrofits, black grill, lip combo. Are your headlights tinted?

Lookin good man.

Black on white has always been one of my favorites. You could go with a black roof and wheels to tie it all in .

Looks good as is anyway, nice work.

Anyone else notice that even with traction control turned off, the car still only lets you get sideways to its point of comfort? Soooo disappointed! I bought manual and awd so I can enjoy my car in the mud and snow. Not so I can be caged like an animal. Subaru if youre out there.. this was the worst idea you had when making this entire car!

I searched and searched but had no luck. I am looking for some photos of a 12/13 Sport with some RPF1's. I'm planning my summer setup and I'd love to see how they look on the new Sports.

TireRack is a great resource for seeing what wheels would look like on your car.

The bottom "lip" looks great! Would you mind sharing details on what you did for that, your grille, and headlights? It looks fantastic!

The lip is just a garage door bottom seal. I bought it at home depot for only $7 dollars.. You will be amazed at what this thing can turn out to be.

It is a pretty common DIY mod on many cars. It is way cheaper than the factory lip spoiler that is being sold for 300 dollars? (if I remember right) It gives the car a lowered look and also protects the bottom of the bumper from scrapes. The material is hard rubber which seems very durable. Even IF it breaks...just get another one!

Here is a guide for that:
http://technovirus.net/diy-universal-front-lip-spoiler/

or just go on google and search for: "home depot lip spoiler" and you will have all the information you need.

Thank you very much! Yes I love that scenery

Me and my friends pretty much just painted the whole house black while we were retrofiting the headlights of my car. We left the shrouds silver and it turned out to be looking mean as hell.

Hello everyone. I'm not sure where to put this but... I picked up my '13 dgm sport couple weeks ago. Just took off the front advertisement plate a couple days ago and the dealership used wood screws to drill holes into my bumper. I noticed some people on here have a front license plate bracket. Do you have to order one? Or is it a dealer option? There are two holes below the two they drilled that look like its meant for a bracket. I want to go to the dealer and make them put a new bumper on. Just seeing if I could get more info. I'll post a picture of the situation if needed.

Front license plate holder for impreza
part number: DCOLICBRKIMP12

you can order it, then just screw it into where they had used wood screws, should be fine.
this is for a 2.0i just to confirm

Are you talking about the black bracket that holds the license plates? Some dealerships give you free brackets (like the dealership I went to). The ones they give you aren't that good and advertise their dealership name on it. They put wooden screws? Thats very unusual, you should definitely go make a complaint if they are drilling holes with wood.

I posted pics of mine at some point in this thread, any of the factory brackets just screw into the 2 holes in the bumper

I took the grille out to plastidip it black, so if anyone has any questions about it feel free to ask. It's a total bitch to do, but if you have a short screwdriver and some time on your hands it can be done without removing the front bumper.

here's my impreza sport ltd

theres def a tutorial on nasioc already that shows how to remove grille.

you dont need to tho, just tape off around it. same amount of work, just another way.

plastidip is sold at lowes, home depot, online, ace hardware etc.

plastidip is very noob-friendly as you can peel it off. lots of videos on plastidip as well.

Will plastidip gets scratched if rocks hit it in the highway? I'm planning to p-dip my tires/rim covers too, will it fade away or get scratched up quickly?

lol alright thanks.

one last question, is there one brand better than another? Or does p-dipp only come in one type or brand? Are there thicker ones and thinner ones?
Which one should I buy? Any recommendations? Thanks !!
