I've sometimes wondered what happened to some of my old vehicles so you were lucky enough to live the dream. NOICE!

Here I go thinking again... Found a Authentic STi Genome Exhaust... Its good to have options. . S204 Ti or STi Genome... I will see which one sounds the best... Which one would you go with??? Both are on par with my JDM theme...

Heck yeah, Bill. Those Volks are amazing, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and congrats!
And IMHO, the S204 axle back is way better looking than the Genome.

I dont think it's that bad to install.

My shop said they do way more VA STi rack installs in GDs/GRs than OEM racks these days. The ratio is mint

Thinking about a S203 rear wing.. I have a spare trunk with a LTD spoiler on it.. just add the wing ... But OEM is WAY out there on price.. sooo maybe a nice replica.. or.. Not... we'll see

Those Volks are seriously nice!

I think the dark grey is perfect.

I like gold wheels in general, but I think dark grey would be my preference since:

1) Nice contrast with the gold calipers

2) Really goes well on white

If you had WRB paint... gold would be the pick, but for white (which I love), grey is perfect.

For our Bugeye, I have 17" O.Z. Prodrive P1s in gold, which I really like with the blue. This is an older pic:



Our '21 STI is white, and the stock wheels are the Enkeis, but with that newer style where some of the spokes are machined, which really changes the look of the wheel. I prefer the older style where they were completely grey:



The wheels I think I am dreaming about for this car are the Rays 57DRs in either satin black or dark grey... but that is way in the future... Have to finish the Bugeye "rebuild" first...
