    I don't have problems turning and stuff. If I think I see people around wanna be extra careful, I roll down the windows (or..well...did in my Civic since I can't yet in my WRX). Same with parallel parking at night.

    I did on my corolla.. thats why my wrx has 35% all the way around. Its also closer to legal here in VA so I dont get any negative attention from the boys in blue.

    lol, Those were funny looking on our 08's, but with the new wide body that is even more out of place. I prefer functional mods over cosmetics, but that would be the first thing I changed if I lived upside-down.

    I'm sure the air flow over the rear of the car is different between the two.. its the trailing edge of the roof line. Advantage or disadvantage I cant say but the looks of the larger spoiler are much better

    Looks awesome! I love how the 11's look in lightning red, soooo clean!

    The car in the background could use some love...

    I dont have any up close, but those should work to give an Idea of how short it is. Definitely takes the "rc car" look away.
