Sleepy the Black Mamba...now with 100% more stealth mode. :)

'05 STi, wingless and lockless trunk, badgeless. The funny thing is I got more looks in it today than normal. People pointing. Ricers with their eyes glued. Weird. Some 30's year old looking black guy in a work truck gets my attention at a stoplight...

Him: Where's the wing at?
Me: I got rid of it. :p
Him: Ah...nice.

I guess I'm not fooling anyone. :p

I was thinking of selling this car, but I really like how it turned out so I'm going to try and hang onto it.

Looks good... although,

You could put some springs on it...

That fender gap is to much...

There are a few for sale in the Private For Sale Forum.

This is true. I'm just going to hold out until I can afford coilovers.

I must say I love the wingless look, but im a function over form kind of guy so I couldnt do it. I think if you had some coilovers and maybe a v-limited lip it would look even better. Looks great now though.

Thanks for the comments. Coilovers are on my list as well as some black wheels (something lightweight). A front lip and maybe a Mine's rear lip spoiler are also a possibility.

Might as well get the blank grill as well.
2.5i? Is this a Subaru factory part?

looks very clean i think.... now all you need is to get a dark tint, lower it, and paint your rims black!




edit : lol im so stupid i didnt even see the tint ( i just looked at the first pic )

is there another way to make downforce? would lowering the car and adding a front splitter help make the car stable at speed? i really like the look.

the trunk bugged me cause i couldent figure out why it looked so different. then my brain turned on, and i realized that there is no key ring. gives it a nice clean look.
