The back looks way too naked, IMO. The front of your car is very busy (stock scoop, fog lights, lip) and there's nothing on the back to balance in out. Maybe at least put back the WRX emblem to balance the trunk key hole and a Mine's spoiler. The trunk key hole stands out too much now.

Oh, and thanks for hooking me up with the busted V-Limited lip. It's actually even more busted now, but cpturbo gave me an excellent deal and it looks great installed. I'm probably going to bust it up myself anyways.

Car looks fine, I like the clean backend, though I wouldn't do it to my car. If I were to come up behind you I would probably think you had a pretty slow car. I did shave all the emblems when I had my SVT Contour and the only way to know it was a Ford was because of the Ford emblem on the back, and then there were no other Ford or Contour emblems anywhere else. Though I think I will keep my car stock because I want all the "ricers" to know I have the real thing, and not just another "AutoZoned" Impreza.

Very good looking car....nice and clean. The USDM fogs and lip look great together. I personally would have kept the STi wing, but to each his own.

Where did you get the V-Limited lip from?

nice work, wdb!

Only thing you need to do now is get a rear bumper kit to balance out the back. Also, put the STi badge back on the trunk, it looks too plain without it, imo.

Mine was a private deal, but there are vendors who support this website and can get them for you. Myles at Racecomp springs to mind but I know there are others.

Thanks! I haven't really done much in the way of performance mods yet because I want to maintain the factory warranty. But the itch is getting stronger and stronger.

Funny you should mention those two things. I agree with you, pretty much. I'm almost certainly going to put an STi badge back on and I've been hemming and hawing about the rear lip pieces. I'm not really crazy about them but I see where people are coming from when they say they lend some balance to the wingless look.

I also recently got a Mines replica CF spoiler which I had on the car briefly (one day, no driving). I think I'm going to attach it more permanently and live with it for a while. Also I got my Mastro floormats and AS dead pedal today. Whoopee more toys! Next up on the "drain wdb's bank account" list is rally-style mudflaps and winter wheels/tires. That is, unless I find an unbelievable bargain on JDM fogs...
