This will just be an on-going mod list and journal of my 2021 STi Sport-Tech (equivalent of the Limited trim for you US folks I believe). This is my first ever Subaru and first real performance car, coming from multiple Civics over the last 12 years, most recently a FBO 2018 hatchback.

Did my first few exterior cosmetic mods the other day. I HATE having a front plate in Ontario but at least this is better than adding more holes to the bumper. The SubieBros F1 light works great with minor fitment difficulties and the door striker covers really classes up an area that nobody but me will ever look at lol.

Ok forgive my ignorance...what's up with the strike plate and hinge covers? Is that a northern/snowland thing?

Same never seen or heard of that before.
Hah I'm not sure, I just happened to see them while getting my F1 light and bumper plugs from Subiebros. Figured they couldn't hurt and looked nice so I threw them in.

Haha nice. It looks good. Classes it up a bit :D

I like the relocation too. Jumped through hoops to mount mine without putting new holes in the bumper. In hindsight should've just done the relocation :LOL:

Love the zipties...Makes me laugh 'cause a friend of mine ripped my front plate off my ford ranger and he put it back with solid copper wire from some romex. It's lasted for 10 years now! If you don't mind the center bumper mounting location I just bought the subaru plate mount and it used the JDM holes. Part number was SOA342L171. No drilling was required and it came with all the hardware required. In case you want to reclaim your tow hook mount. I also got some silicone plate backers for the rear so it wouldn't scratch the paint all up, even though the plates will always be there.

Also the pure red is gorgeous. My 5 yo wanted me to get pure red but I got wrb pearl instead. Every time we see a pure red he always says, "Dad! You should've gotten red!" See these picks makes me think maybe he's not wrong!

Whats the saying? If it's stupid and it works, it's not so stupid? Haha

That's great advice on the plate, thanks. May go that route eventually.

Funny enough I wanted WRB going in to buy my STi. Never even considered the red. But it sold the night before (purchased in cash for his 18 year old son's birthday!!) So red was my only choice. Took half a second to convince me lol, wasn't even mad when I saw red in person.

Funny...I actually wanted black but it sold the day I was trying to get my financing in place. They only had WRB which was my second choice and now I'm like, what was I thinking! I'll send you a photo so you can see the finish of the mounts. It's pretty clean, I must say.
