Do what I started doing.. get good insurance and leave it unlocked.

Default HID headlights

I want to get HID head lights that are 8000k. Would I need to upgrade wiring or battery or anything like that?

Are you going to do it the correct way and do (or get done for you, since you apparently have no clue on how this is done) legitimate retrofit? Or are you going to be one of the typical ricer ******** out there who just shove an HID bulb into a halogen projector? Either way, search, the info is out there and you gave no info on anything beyond you wanting the mad tyte HIDs, yo.

This.

You drive at night? Then you don't want 8000k bulbs. People like you make want to run you off the road and smash your headlights out.

Find one of the many write-ups in painting the inside of the lights, that'll get you inside of the lamp assembly. Then find any write up on how to install halos, pretty much any car is going to be the same on that side (except diameter of the halo itself). That easy.

To be fair though, I believe I saw an install out there once before, it was on a 3rd gen body, may have been halos or may have been an HID retrofit, concept starts out the same either way.

Wanted something unique so I made this 20mm casing into a shift knob. Used the weight in the stock shifter, I cut it up and made it fit the casing so now it's weighted and it feels nice also I used the stock shifter body to thread it to the shifter, used gorilla glue to make sure it all stays in place!

great job. You should add the gauge cluster color change mod and the hvac color change mod as well. Those tend to be popular.

Default 2013 Impreza Upgrade options

I have a 2013 Subaru impreza baseline, whats the best course of action to upgrade to WRX or STI, and where would I have to go to buy WRX/STI parts?

buying a WRX/STI would have been the best/cost effective choice

You're kidding...

Sell it and buy a WRX/STi. Impreza = Naturally Aspirated which means no turbo. No turbo on a flat four means no way to get much more power out of the engine. WRX/STi = turbo which means there are MANY ways to get more power out of the already powerful engine.

Just throw on a cold air intake and call it a day. Otherwise sell your car and buy an older WRX/STi.

Just my two cents.
