Cool,
I thought the green WRX sticker was for the wagon?
I have the same seats they're awesome.
Cheers.
If that is a conversion it is the most complete I have ever seen. Folding mirrors, door cards, rear wiper, aero guards, relocated antenna. That's a lot of work.

Driving impressions? Are you still on stock boost...any mods? Any plans for modding?

Looks terrific, very well done. Enjoy the car

Driving it is awsome. it goes good, stock boost. Way better than driving my ver7 swapped rs.

Call rallispec and order a sticker from them, that way you will have one to look @ in person.

That is teh hotness! Very nice work. I'll have to get some pics up of my swap once I finally get it all prettified next week. I'm installing a FMIC, and while everything's taken apart I'm going to pull off the intake manifold and take it to get red powdercoating. Also steam-cleaning the whole motor and engine bay. Then my car should be looking almost as hot as yours.

Btw, would anyone reading this happen to know a good place to get unpainted v5 fog light covers? subarugenuineparts.com only sells them painted silver or white with the STI stickers on them. I've given up looking for any already painted BRP, but these things are still a bit scarce. Currently poking around in UK online shops, and there may be some possibilities...

I think the only thing you can do is buy some aftermarket covers on ebay. But they arent going to be as nice a genuine. I think you are better off buying them and just respraying them.

here's one place in UK, they're not genuine but they look good.

i'd agree with jeremy tho. nothing seems to fit or look quite as nice as genuine parts. and you don't really seem to notice the little details that make some knock offs looks like knock offs until you do get the real thing. me....i'll probably just get knock offs lol.

Yeah, I also agree that replicas would be inferior to the genuine parts in this case, but I must admit I'm not going for perfection here, so something just adequate will do. I prefer putting my money towards performance over aesthetics, and shelling out for the real deal and then having to pay more to repaint them anyways just isn't practical to me.

/thinking out loud

Anyways, after much searching around on ebay.co.uk, I've found a few places that I might be able to go through. Thanks for the feedback!
