So I had purchased this used from a dealer with 1 previous owner with a little over 47k on the clock.

I planned to have a daily driver that I can casually mod in a tasteful but somewhat subtle manner.

-OEM Option Exhaust Tip

Wheel/Tire:
-Prodrive P1 17x7 (purchased powdercoated black, not the best condition) + Center Caps
-205/50/17 Falken (will go 225 with new wheel setup)


Interior:
-STi Duracon Shift knob
-Factory Aux adaptor

Engine:
-HKS Panel Filter

Suspension:
-KYB Excel-G WRX struts
-Eibach ProKit Springs
-WRX Rear Swaybar (maybe 16mm?)
-WRX Endlinks

Future mods:

Pre- Suspension with Prodrive P1s


Excel G's with Eibachs


WRX Rear Swaybars, Endlinks, new bolts and hardware. had to clean the rusted out Sway bar mounts because the bolts would not thread through.
*Will replace Exhaust eventually with something mild sounding.. Thinking of an aftermarket rear sections with OEM replacement mid section w/ resonator

Front end, before Lip, after Suspension



After STi V- Limited Lip Installed (Grill Mustache painted black):


Front top view (Grill wrapped black):

Side profile of lip. Will probably get STi V-Limited Lip extension later.


STi rear spoiler (came of SSM painted STi)

*** Notice how my Snoobaru which was visible with stock 2.5i spoiler is now almost covered.

STi Duracon shifter after about a year's worth of wear and tear.


Front suspension gap after 1 year- Eibach Springs + KYB Excel-G's.


Rear wheel gap-


The Prodrive P1s I bought in the beginning from a pretty good deal. however, they cam powdercoated and they have curb rash. As much as I love the classic design, I am dissatisfied with the offset and not willing to deal with spacers. If it had a decent offset, I would have spent money to get the re-powdercoated. That being said, i am planning to get a set of RPF1s in gold or bronze on 225/45/17's very soon.

Yes, totally bolts on (here is the Instructions: https://techinfo.subaru.com/proxy/63...e2410fg100.pdf), but NOT cheap... I worry about it alot since it is made from hard plastic (not flexible type PU plastic) I've scraped coming down to quickly on steep inclines. Part number: E2410FG100

Will probably get the skirt lip for under it to complete the look:



Side note:

Getting the Rear Oem under spoiler/ guard and painting it black when it gets here. should break up the rear end a bit.


Also:
Getting a set of RPF1's soon, but still deciding to get the new Bronze or classic gold. I wonder which would look better with a Spark Silver Impreza.
or...

???
