Tell me what you guys think. The pictures really don't do justice plus my digicam is cheap. I really didn't know what to think but now I think it looks absolutely amazing, that is in person of course.

Looks nice; very sinister. Maybe some tint to go along with your nice ride.

BTW, how is the handling with 17s?

I agree, tint is the next item on my list of things to do. I also have the STI rear swaybar on order so that will actually be my next mod. As far as handling goes, I couldn't believe what a change it made. Just the 17's alone with stickier tires have increased cornering speed along with quicker turn in. The sloshy feel of the 16's and geolanders has been completely eliminated. The only down side is the soft comfy ride has been sacrificed somewhat to provide a more sportier feel. The ride is still quite comfortable at cruising speed but I have noticed bumps are just a tad bit harsher at city speeds. Trust me, the ride is not bad at all. It reminds me a great deal of how my WRX wagon rode with 17" inch wheels. I truly wouldn't have it any other way.
