You need use "[img][/img]" around the direct link to the image. If you set up a photobucket account they have an option for image code next to the pictures usually

Niiiice. Do you have the rest of the interior or just the front seats? I'm curious how that'll look with just the blue fronts. I've got a buddy that said he'll give me his USDM ones for super cheap. It'd be better than nothing... mine are falling apart.

Looks sweet, sounds like a blast to drive. I couldn't find any more pictures of your car from the side... I'm wondering about your ride height. That's not stock is it? Those tires seem to hug your fenders just right.

I'm trying for a rallycross set up (since next summer I'm going to be playing in the Got Dirt? series a lot)... curious if I REALLY need to lift or what. Last I played, I was in a slightly lowered '05 STi with a front lip and I didn't have a single problem even though people were convinced I was going to rip my lip off. Now I'm in a stock height WRX. What you've got going on there looks just right.

Alezial, I just have the front seats. The rest is black. I did get the black carpet too, which is good, my gray carpet was tearing on the driver's side.

My driver's side is toast! I'd definitely wanna go black. Easy to install?

I was looking into getting the center piece dyed or changed but I am going to leave them alone. I don't want to kill value.

Super easy to install, unbolt the old seat, unplug the harness. Remove and replace with sti seat. Enjoy the comfort.

I wouldn't have got these seats but the deal was way too good to pass up.

For rallycross you should be good stock. Also a huge disclaimer, don't try to put on the same tire size - I shed a lot of weight but still rub a bit, which kills it if you're trying to go fast through dips and corners. I'll swap these out soon for a slightly smaller size.

Here's some stats on tires if you want to go a little over, starting with stock:
Specs Side Radius Diam Circum Revs Diff
205/55-16 4.4 12.4 24.9 78.2 811 0.0%
215/55-16 4.7 12.7 25.3 79.5 797 1.7%
205/60-16 4.8 12.8 25.7 80.7 785 3.2%
215/60-16 5.1 13.1 26.2 82.2 771 5.1%
225/60-16 5.3 13.3 26.6 83.7 757 7.0%

You also reduce effective gear ratio/acceleration/rotating mass as size goes up, so if you want a little more clearance spacers or springs might be a better route.

I am just low enough so the tire tops line exactly up with the fenders. I rolled all of them, and dont rub unless I hit sharp turns at crazy speeds.

Running 18x8.5 with 235/45/18 nittos.

What is the offset on your wheels? I'm running 245's on a 17x8 +48 and don't rub at all with only rear fenders rolled, I'd say I'm just about as low too.

Guess that makes sense, 10mm would put me right into the fender I think.

Wow man, thanks for that. Just when I start to think I might know a thing or two about stuff someone always comes along and says, "Yes, yes, but did you think about...". I had not realized how much of a difference the tires can make on clearance. Now, of course, that makes perfect sense. I hadn't been looking at doing a tire size different from stock, just to keep things simple.

I was planning on doing a lift with a fozzy setup... but I started noticing that that sort of thing is for people doing... Jeep stuff with their subies. A 2" lift seems excessive for when I want to do my normal thing the other 29 days of the month. If I can get away with nearly normal ride height, I'll be happy with that!

Thanks again!

I have a fozzy lift setup for sale in February if you decide to do it. Defiantly more of a off road setup not rally tho.

Got together with Bugeye_boy03 up there, and installed his 2013 wrx intercooler. Thing is huge! It sits on top of the turbo banjo haha. Fixed a small coolant leak on mine.

Still haven't seen a Subie I like more. Guess I will stick with the Bug, though it would benefit from some real lights... and more mods of course.
