Default Versus said my car is the least JDM looking Subaru, how can I make it look more JDM?

Here is my car:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...8&page=1&pp=25

Here is the mods I got:

JDM Big fogs
JDM Subaru front lip
S202 oil cooler
JDM clear headlights
Advan RCII wheels
Bridgestone Potenza tires
JIC titanium cat back exhaust
JDM Subaru and Spec-C badging
SYMS CF wing
SYMS rear differential cover

Things you can see on the inside:

Impul shift knob
S203 hazard button
STi floor mats
STi side sills
Kenwood stereo
Defi gauge controller
Apexi turbo timer

I really ran out of mods to make my car look more JDM, can you all help me and give me suggestion on how I can make it look more JDM?

JDM addict's car is very nice, but its one of the least jdm-looking subarus I've seen and its mind-boggling.
And now I am puzzle, how can I make it look more JDM? I really don't know

who cares what versus says! You have the cleanest, most original (not to mention expensive) JDM ride! If you do need something maybe some JDM parking decals?

Sell it and buy a 64 Impala low rider.

In truth you have some cool stuff on your car, but to the average observer it is just a white WRX with white wheels. You really have to know what you are looking at to notice the details.

This thread is a joke and was obviously made to make Versus look like an idiot while all of Addict's herum post about how they'd **** themselves with a tin-can just to sit in his car.

Well maybe not a joke, but a cry for attention. Are you lonely, addict?

Eh.....then I would say that you haven't seen a lot of people's cars. aside from the super expensive oil cooler and syms wing, it looks ordinary. I think Nick's car(sti grip) looks more jdm than yours(arc front mount, sti rs-zero rims, jdm pop up navi screen). I agree with Jeff(versus) on this one as well.
Maybe you can get a crazy rotated turbo with reverse intake manifold with some wild body kit, but then you'll get some people that'll call it rice?Your car looks clean though

I'm not a fan. Then again i don't see why people want their cars to "look JDM" Why do some people think copying their style makes them original? Oh well. Nice work if you like it.

+1 for nick's(STi grip) car as well.. ... think u missed the another exclusive part he has... the twin-scroll ZEROSPORTS turbine kit... it doesnt get more JDM then having a JDM twin scroll turbo...

addict's car is really nice..many hard to source parts as well.. but appearance wise besides that.... it is kinda common in japan and HK to be honest in JDM context.. .but clean none the less...def looks like a mildly modded (appearance) JDM STi...i wouldnt say the LEAST JDM looking..sorta an in bwt for me...


RHD conversion will def silence the crowd....

Subaru vinyl decal to the right of the key hole on the trunk, black JDM side mirrors, roof vent, side markers.....That's a start. Your car is amazing though. Don't worry about what others say about your car, so long as you like it. Besides, your car is far from "ordinary". How many other people have 265's or white wheels for that matter?

Your car is clean and simple. I like it a lot. Unless your entering Car Shows, you should not care what other people think of your car. You know what you have and that is good enough. JDM is starting to become overrated, but still exclusive to some extent.

BTW, can someone please explain JDM to me? I have always thought JDM is aftermarket products you buy from Japanese companies and JSPEC is OEM parts you get from Japan?

get some of those rain visor things for your car, power folds if you dont have them, a body kit of sorts, one of the more subtle kits (i like the ings +1 even though that is a change). if you want to look stock then i dont know but those are some of the things i would do to my car (i have bug eyes). other than that who cares, like i have to say it cause everyone else says it but you car is nice. if it were me i would prbably change your car to sit on gold rims and a carbon fiber hood. again that is a change, but good luck with everything

The way I see it, there are rare parts because they are super expensive and no one buys, and then there are rare parts that are super expensive and hard to get. My cusco lateral links and trailing arms are rare in the fact that they expensive, but my old jdm navigation screen was expensive and hard to acquire. No offense, but I put that sti oil cooler in the rare because no one buys it category.

I've seen lots of other cars that are cleaner and more "jdm" and then there are some people who have spent 3x the amount as he had, but don't post on this forum. Just so happens jdm addict appears with new threads every once in awhile
