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...
Understand, I have been on the fence about Gold.. I have OE GOLD BBS's and have thought about changing one of the other OE Wheels I have to Gold..But I not confident right now that the Current Powder coat matches the OE Gold perfectly.. and thats What I would want.. Perfection

So alot of people were asking how I was able to find my 2005 STi that I was the Original owner of. Actually it found me.. The Current owner remembered a post when he bought it that indicated that If I had the means, I would love to buy it back and he reached out to me asking if I would be interested in buying it back.. It has had 4 owners.. me.. a 3 month transitional person that sold it after 3 months after buying it from Subaru of JAX. That person sold it to a friend and he kept the car for 9 years, mainly down in Orlando Fla. That person went thru various stages with it. He sold it to the current owner, Another Friend, but not before asking me if wanted to buy it back, back in 2016.. I couldn't afford at the time as life was going thru a transition for me. Fast forward til now and like I said, the current owner, whose owned it for the last 4 years, reached back out to me to see if I would be interested.. .and here we are . I am beyond stoked to get this thing back in my possession and look forward to keeping it around for the long haul.. A brief pictorial history from Brand new listed below including various Liveries of when I owned it before as well as the current configuration towards the end. It spent life as a Autocross car when I owned it before, but now will be enjoyed just with meets and cruises. It still incorporates many of the Mods I did when I first owned it.
-JDM Fogs
-JDM Sidemarkers
Many other JDM goodies. I have already started accumulating many new parts to get it back into New condition, Including new drip rail moldings, New Belt moldings, New undertray, Intercooler Gasket, New Center Gauge Pod, New Gauges.. and lots of other goodies.


Brand New



3 months after I owned..STG 2 Tune

What happened to your Impreza wagon that you got after you sold your STI? The last I can remember you had it re-painted.

Making a list of goodies to do when it warms up.. on the STi
-Install SE37k's with 235/40/18 Kumho Ecsta V730
-Install new Headunit
-Install Spec C power steering cooler
-Install Boom Boom Pow Subwoofer
-Install new Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft
-Install S203/4 Titanium Exhaust
-Replace windshield with OEM gasket and glass
-Have Rear Wheel bearings Checked
-One more round of deep cleaning and detailing.. including the undercarriage this time
-Thinking of taking the sideskirts to a bodyshop and have them mold the spats onto the skirt to make it all one piece, that way it would look super clean .

That should keep me busy when the weather breaks.. then I plan to enjoy it for a while including Cars and Coffee events, Subiefest, Fl4tfest and local meets...ready to show this thing off for a while...

If anyone thinks of anything else I can do.. Let me know

I've been eying that head unit for my 06 STi. Does it look like the bezel can be removed easily for painting? That's been my only concern since I painted my stock one a darker color.

Yes.. 4 screws hold the head unit to the bezel... so easy peasy..

In other news..
Getting my wheels up to snuff for the tire install coming up in the spring. I would post pics but Nasioc's image site is borked at the moment. Head unit is sorta in.. I took my old one out. and put the new one in its place...super easy to install it seems.. I have to put all the antenna's. Blue-tooth, USb, GPS to get the head unit ready for final install..It's just kinda sitting there for now..but it has power.. its connected to my home WI-FI system..so it can get updates. I will post pics when I can.. also have to get my boom boom pow wired up.. More later
