I'm going to a body shop that gregonfire used for his 2010 SWP WRX. They successfully matched his OEM paint. So I'm pretty hopeful. It's literally like a 3 inch scrape under the bumper that you can see from the front a bit. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks! Yes, I would definitely recommend both TurboXS's downpipe and catback exhaust. They have good quality products and very reasonable prices.
I would run their catback exhaust on my STI (ran in on my WRX) if they offered a burnt tip option. But I wanted the blue tips this time around

Thank you. I'm trying to stick with all authentic parts this time around.

After some research, I learned that the authentic Chargespeed bottomline kit only comes in fiberglass or carbon fiber.
Both materials are extremely fragile and wouldn't take kindly to any amount of impact. So I decided to go with a replica kit made out of polyurethane.

I went with the Type 1 front lip and Type 1 side skirt extensions.
The rear spats aren't available in polyurethane from any vendor I could find, so fiberglass rear spats are on order.

Here's two shot to show the front:

I'm all about authentic as well, but I believe front spoilers are an exception for the amount of abuse they're likely to take. Smart choice.

This car is beyond perfect. I want a hatchback so bad.

I have a dumb question, what's your camber sitting at? I plan to go back to RT to have the alignment done again after I get myself some coilovers.

I'm at -1.5 degrees at all 4 corners right now on lowering springs and I'm thinking I might want to go to around -2.0 degrees all around. Your car sits perfect.

Thanks man. I love hatchbacks. I've never owned a sedan.
'89 Honda CRX Si
'95 Eagle Talon TSI AWD
'04 VW R32
'09 Subaru WRX Premium 5dr
'14 Subaru STI 5dr

My camber is at -2.8F, -2.5R, though I think I could run a little less up front and I might drop the rear a hair more. We'll see.
Need to play with the dampening a bit and get that sorted first.

For what I was trying to fit, all the research indicated I should aim for -2.5 at all four corners
