    Looking for opinions on some exterior changes to my '12 WRX.

    Hey guys, just wondering if I could get some second opinions on some outside changes I would like to make to my already awesome ride, just wanna give it some more personality that shows it's mine. Mainly for right now I wanna change the trunk trim that is above the license plate and the side fender emblems. I took pics of the pieces that I wanted to change and with the paint program on my computer, I was able to get a few different ideas of what they may look like on the car and these are what I came up with....(the first pics are what it looks like now). Please comment and let me know what you think looks cool. I'm also putting on the side window defectors, black Rally Armor mudflaps, and side body molding pieces eventually when I have the time and money.

    Stickerbomb it ALLLLL YO!!!!!!!!!!

    Trunk trim I would either go body color or maybe carbon fiber or carbon fiber wrap
    Side badges I plasti dipped mine black and also painted my calipers black and plasti dipped my window trip to get rid of the silver/chrome but black with red or blue lettering would be good.

    Some other cosmetic things you can do is:
    HID projector retrofit
    Paint the chrome on your headlights
    Angel eyes if you like that
    LED strips in your side vents as a turn signals
    LED bulb swap
    Window Tint
    Front lip
    Side Skirts or EZ Lip as side skirts

    Keep the trunk trim blue
    Use WRB touch up paint to color in the WRX on the side emblems
    De-badge the trunk
    Get the window chrome delete strips

    Just my .02

    I actually LOVE that black with blue lettering side emblem mock up, It looks good. If you want, you can keep tabs on my build thread, the link is in my signature. I think you may like some of the things I'm doing to the looks of my WRX. I'm getting the carbon fiber trunk trim and the black fender emblems. Also going to be getting a front lip. I already have my windows tinted. Another good one that I plan to do is the hella supertone horns in red and put some red pin striping around my grill. I would also look into debadging the trunk and taking of that dealership sticker!

    EDIT: forgot about the chrome window trim delete! That's also in my stack of parts for install right now.

    Done with these products:

    The picture is missing the almost perfectly matching blue nail polish. Found it at the local Walmart.

    Lol those fender badges and vents are so cheap and cheesie looking. The back plastic strip on the trunk above the license plate, why the F%^k? What purpose does that piece serve? GD for the win.

    I actually kind of digged the fender badges, vents were of no use IIRC unless you did some drilling out of the centers and added holes behind them. That thing n the trunk is suposed to be a cover for the "handle" you lift the trunk from. But I agree, I prefer my GD to my old '11.

    I would leave the trunk piece the same color as the car. Paint the wrx lettering blue on the badge, and leave it silver.
