I love Grimace.
This is my first Subaru and I'm throughly enjoying it. I had a MINI Cooper S before and needed more room and power. I had my sights on a STI or Evo and my wife said no Evo. She knows about cars, but that response was due to her thinking the Evo is "ugly". :lol:

I'm an elevator mechanic/technician for 2100+ hours a year and the rest of the time I'm learning about cars. I like long drives on PCH, running into Jay Leno on Easter and taming The Dragon.
I can build a new elevator from the ground up with a top speed of 16 mph.

because someone else said they almost never see that color. And gives the OP an idea of what his car looks like with different wheels and stuff. And its fun. And its the internet. So chill

Re: 14 STi "Grimace"

Got some parts in today.

Tighter fit than the stock ones:


Definitely an improvement there, waiting in line patiently for my tails to be done:


Maybe help with water mist when rainy season comes:

Aligning the key


Shaved the sides
