Ha, that reminded me, i totally forgot to post last year when i had the original gold BBS that came with the car re-done. they were getting a bit tired, so i fixed up the rash areas and had RMS in Fremont powdercoat them with a new look.
Along with that, new RE-71R's for the summer months mounted at Auto Innovations, still running the RE970's on gold BBS for winter

I took the car to AJ's this weekend for a complete detail, handwash, then the paint is clayed, polished and sealed with two coats of polymer seal wax.
Doing this 1-2 times a year keeps it looking almost new (apart from the paint chips) after 11 years





Even though i take good care of it, its still a practical Subaru that gets used to haul stuff around...

Did you go with a prismatic powder? Which one did RMS think is closest to BBS gold?

Prismatic has a color called Lite Goldtastic that I think would be very close.

Just wanted to share this, quite a difference with a 245/50 tire


custom powdercoated at RMS


Not going to fit on the STI...


But works great with adapter spacers on the FXT
