so i need opinions because i'm on the ball here and i don't know what would be better i guess?

1) do i paint match all my sti badges, even the ones in the fender to match my wheels in highlighter yellow? i'm partial because then my rear will look weird i think because the tails are red know what i mean?
I wouldn't personally. That will make them stand out way too much and ruin the flow of the car. People expect the badges to stay a certain color and when that draws too much attention to the badges instead of the rest of the car. At least that is the way I feel about it.

2) should i go lower? it looks good from some angles, but then sometimes i feel like its a monster truck.
I wouldn't. I like the height yours is right now. Mine will probably sit right there too when the new suspension setup gets here.

i'm also in the process of blacking out all the chrome and silver on the car. like the stuff around the badge (not the stars) and the door trim, rear trim etc etc.
Can't blame you here. I am not a fan of chrome either. At least with my silver, you don't notice it around the badges. On darker cars, it stands out more.
i'm basically trying to cut down on all the contrasting things. all stickers are going to come off i think. i'm open to any suggestions for things to clean the car up a bit and just make it look well put together.
That is what I try to do with mine as well so I completely get where you are coming from. It is all about how the look of the car flows from front to rear.
