    Dig the matte black and the rims not so much the off set but if you like it its all that matters. Now I would love to tuck a new legacy like that. Let's just say I had a dream..lol

    i'm not a big fan of it, but it's nice to see something a little different.

    coming from the VW community, i saw a lot of this.

    little bit older and a little bit more jaded.

    Thanks guys, even though it's not everyone's cup of tea I'm glad to see some open minds.

    Here's my two cents, throw on some paint, get some OEM fenders with side markers, and add a lip. I really like the stance but I'm not the biggest fan of XXR's. What's your suspension setup?

    Stance coilovers, and all brand new oem parts, ball joints, lca's, etc. due to the accident.

    It looks unique, and those rims are 1" too big for me or they would look perfect. The matte thing is more of a hotrod style, not WRX. I still think it looks good in its own way.

    I really like it actually. I'm personally not too into the lowering but hey if you like it... well thats what counts. That paint job though is pretty sweet.

    +1 on tinted tails too. Go to your local car shop and there's some stuff you can buy to do it yourself... like $12. It's basically a very thin, glossy, spraypaint. Pop the covers off, clean them well, and give it a couple careful, even coats. Take your time and don't go too dark. Mine are just dark enough to change the tone of the red. They definitely don't look blacked out but it's a huge difference from stock.

    I'm on the fence with this one. I'm not really feeling the murdered out look with a WRX but I appreciate what you are trying to go for. That muffler though, I just can't get behind it. I just don't like that look because it screams 17 year old ricer to me.

    Regardless of looks though, I personally am a function over form kind of guy in regards to my car. I like a car to look nice but if it can't drive down a dirt road, go over a speed bump without worries and pull into a parking lot, then it just doesn't make sense to me.

    Thanks man, I actually paint cars for a living and have tinted quite a few taillights. I know the paint you are talking to but I prefer a clear coat tint, gives a longer lasting gloss finish. I'm considering the taillights but like you said, I would only do them dark enough to change that red to a darker red. Thanks for the input!

    blinker hole...lol if only I hadn't allready had a log in name...

    As for the bugeye... this is just my opinion but, it really does need some actual color on it on top of the missing lights need to be put back in.... I don't like matte black or flat colors, just looks like it was slapped together...IMO...

    I'm very picky as far as rims and they change the whole personality of the car plus I think they have to be functional.... so if you can't go over a speed bump or even drive down the road w/o feeling you were a shakin up beer can then its a waste of time, money and effort...
