Default dye.sti's 2012 WRX Daily Driver Build

I used to own a 2006 WRX that was my first subaru and did only a few mods to it.

-Catless cobb exhaust
-SPT intake and heat shield
-35% Tint
-JNA CS style front lip
-Pro sport gauges (boost, elec, oil press)

What It looked like:





I bought it used back in 2007 with 22k miles, 5 years later at 99k miles I traded it in to Manchester Subaru to buy my new 2012.

Here what it looked like delivered to me back in March.



Mods so far in order (3-2-2013):
-Grimmspeed license plate relocation kit
-Invidia Q300 Titanium tip Cat back Exhaust
-Epic Engineering lowering Springs
-Rota Grids Flat Black (17x9 +42 using stock 235/45)
-Muteki Red lugs
-Underground Graphics STi Centercap Overlays
-Tail light Tint
-SPT Vortex Gen
-Subaru Red Footwell lighting
-Cobb Intake and box
-CNT Catted Downpipe
-DEFI red racer boost gauge
-Custom Stage 2 Tune by M@ at Wicked Innovations












Future plans:
-Big TMIC (still not sure on a brand - process west?)
-Forge BPV
-35% Tint
-Black out Headlights (hate the chrome look)
-Chrome strip delete (strip under the windows)
-Replace stock head unit
-Replace Stock speakers
-Install my AMP and Sub
-JNA Front Lip

I have been really thinking about how to deal with getting rid of the chrome strip right under the windows I have seen people on the forums using plati-dip and it looks great, but I also found this: http://www.premiumautostyling.com/pr...blackout%20kit

If I went plati-dip route i could also black out the side 'wrx' fender marker and back badges.

thoughts?

also saw on their site tail light tint: http://www.premiumautostyling.com/pr...ght%20overlays

either 25% or 50%?

Looks great so far. I like the badges too, I would have left the wrx and the AWD badges if I would of thought it would look like that.

I have a black sedan as well. Did my headlights alllll black. I think it looks awesome. I also have PW top mount, if you want to go to a new top mount its the way to go.

I do love the way that looks, but if i painted them like that there is no way i could pass inspection.
