The mod bug hit me pretty quickly, but i started small and researched ALOT. The first thing i did was a debadge of the trunk and moving the 2.5rs badge to the front grille.

Pic's from the freak snowstorms we had over winter:


Next i painted the foglights yellow with stained glass paint (ignore the front plate, it was a gift that was later broken on a snowbank, oops :

Next i had to get rid of my monster truck status, but i also wanted the car to handle well too, so i bought brand new Swift Springs and Arthur helped me put them on:



I'd like to go lower but i know that with the winters and roads around here it's better for me to go function over form. I still scrape my lip tons already .


This is pretty much how my car sits as of right now. New wheels soon though

Okay guys, i need help on my wheel color choice.

I'm pretty set on my wheel choice, which i will be getting by October.

17x7.5 Rota Torques on 225/45/17 HANKOOK VENTUS V4 ES H105 94W

I'm 99% sure the wheels will be ordered from Wheeldude.

But i can't decide if i should get bronze or gunmetal wheels. Gunmetal would be very subtle but bronze would stand out just a little bit more. I know both are sooo overdone but i'm trying to have a clean, tastefully modded Subie.

Any thoughts?

I believe it lol, get them in gunmetal. It would look cleaner and more aggressive IMO.

Alright, yea i'm leaning more towards gunmetal at the moment, but i feel that bronze would offset the car nicely, i have no idea haha. Thanks

Go hyperblack. I've never been much a fan of bronze on silver cars.

Steel grey would look nice, too.

Looks like it's coming along, I am going 17x8 g forces in hyper black, awesome color. Good luck with the build. I respect you did research and didn't just throw on random stuff.

Yea it is a great color. Thanks, i'm trying to do it right and as clean as possible. However, it's almost on the verge of bland so i want to get something just a little flashy and i feel like some nice wide hyper black torques fit the bill, and for $700 shipped who can complain?
