I can't see stripping down my STi. I want people to know I have an STi. However, I don't race (other than the occasional punks on the street). I actually consider it the other way around. I think there are plenty of people that like the RS and can only afford the RS and over time want to mod it up. The only problem with that theory is the Brembo's. But, I think if you paint them black, you can go with the rest of yer plans and make a conservative sedan that could also be somewhat a 'sleeper'.
