Had clear bra applied on Saturday... also had the guy install some light-smoked overlays on my tails. The back end looks much, much better now!

How's the ride? Are they bouncy or close to stock?

The ride is stiffer. You will feel a difference over speedbumps and other uneven surfaces in the road. Around curves though it great, takes alot of the mushiness out of the stock suspension IMO

I had H&R springs on my 08 and i loved them, now they are sitting in my office, i might put them in the 2012 WRX or i might sell them and go with KW v1s this time around. I love taking corners on them!!

Sweet! Thanks for the input guys. I was leaning more towards epics but now I think i'll go for the H&R's

Don't go epics. I'd go with H&r's or the swift sports (get the ones designed for the 08+ STI). My swifts provided a good drop and a great ride, especially with KONIS.

Swifts on my 11

Why no on the epics? Had them on my 11 before my ISC coilovers and I loved them.

Super bouncy I think the epic spring rates are fairly soft comparatively. Doesn't seem they are willing to publish their rates though, which doesn't bode well. I rode in an epic equipped 10 before I made my spring decision and they were way too bouncy/soft for my liking.

I know this doesn't answer your question but... I thought of this as well. There is nothing to see behind it. I think It may look good, since real mesh is better than this plastic alternative, but something would need to be done with the spare tire pan.
