    Its your car do what every you think make you happy. Personally I like gold rims on the wrb, white, black and red cars but again its your car you do what you like. Im sure you can look around in some of the photo forums to get some ideas.

    World Rally Blue and Gold? Pretty much every other subaru. So I think you're good on the color scheme. It's very very popular for a reason.

    I like the WRB and gold but I think the carbon fiber hoods are played out. Then again I guess so is the blue and gold, so do what you want

    It's very common, keep that in mind. IMO, the most attractive combo is WRB with white wheels, though if you take that route I'd suggest you drop the CF hood; the stock aluminum hood is lighter anyway.

    unpainted carbon fiber body panels are lame.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Since you have an 03 if you maybe put a matching or larger CF hood scoop I dont think it looks horrible. Im not a fan when other people put cf on other body panels I would consider paining them or just not doing it at all. Also make sure you get a quality hood I have seen some haze up.

    take a look at The Bugeye Thread on Nasioc http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1991630 you may find a similar look.

    You can always buy some vinyl wrap and try it out.

    +1 to most of the above. i've never been a fan of carbon fiber unless it's painted to match the body

    There's one guy on the bugeye thread that painted his cf hood a clear blue color that matches the WRB tone but is still transparent that you can see the cf.

    I like the look of carbon fiber itself, but it's getting played out on cars. Like Zax said...the stock hood is better anyway.

    Stick with WRB and gold. No carbon.
