Re: Leeroix's gr

i just wash the **** out of it. being a black car has its drawbacks, but i think when its super clean its sexy as hell. there is a write up on here for painting the fog surrounds. basically they unclip, then you need to take them apart (a few screws) and mask off the horizontal part, then scuff the crap out of them so the paint sticks. add a heat lamp, tack them off and spray em.

Re: Leeroix's gr

bumper is back on, took the time to clear the headlights, got the chrome amber bulbs. also, removed the subaru emblem to get rid of the blue paint and paint it black. subtle changes but i like it.

Re: Leeroix's gr

what do you think of the harman motive stage 2? I'm thinking of going with the same setup and was wondering about real world HP, Torque, spoolup time etc. Gas mileage any different? Would you do it again? What about drone @ highway speeds? Cheers

Re: Leeroix's gr

Yep i would def do it again. The stock tune sucks. Fuel econ definately went down - but that should even matter to you if you want to drive this thing right. The econ guage says about 18.5. The exhaust is sick! Perfect fit and quality is excellent. I ripped out the resonator to make it bark more. Not too much drone on the road and it starts screamin when you put your foot into it. i covered it up with some nice heat shielding so you cant tell the dp is high flow. It seems like it spools up a bit faster too. Harmans website claims 274 hp. You will be happy you went stg 2. I love it! And everybody i see does too. Get an intake with the carb stickers to keep popo happy:)

Re: Leeroix's gr

yeah i was lookin into those... my problem is, the exhaust tips are chrome. the side badges are chrome, and the headlights have chrome in them. i can get the exhaust ceramic coated black, and get the r205's, but what about the headlights?
