Here's a couple of pics of my 09 WRX. Bought as a rebuild end of 2010 with 11k up. Then got hit with monster hail in Tennessee last year (shattered the glass!) so we were worried the insurance co would want to write the car off (again). Luckily they finally came up with a nice big check to repair it
I came up with the two tone paint idea as nearly all the damage was above the body line. We had a paintless dent repair outfit pull the few below, and filled the rest. Roof took a lot of work, but at a fraction of the cost of replacing. Carbon hood was a no brainer, really. Toyed around with white as a top color, but finally picked a DGM that sat well with the carbon. Car is all grey from the front and all black from the rear. Black wheels was the only way to go. We are running skinny 16" Enkei rims with Nokian winter rubber at the mo, with 18x8s and slightly oversized 235/40 summer performance Contis waiting for the snow to melt.
Got a pro tune done at Ziptie Dynowerks in SLC. We are up at Park City doing a lot of our driving over a mile up, so thin air is a problem power wise. Still, we have a bunch of empty mountain roads with good vis, so we can use what we got most of the time. 260whp with just a $50 intake and colder plugs, and a bunch more torque lower down. Cheap power! This year I am going to look for some more. Next bump won't be as cheap, obviously. Probably a catback and a TMIC and then more time on the dyno. 300whp would be a nice goal......
Probably get a mild tint on the glass and maybe do something with the chrome trim. That strip on the back is awful (to my eyes). Would like to lower the front slightly. Don't see anyone else doing this, so it will be interesting to see how it goes. Will only go an inch, we are 3 miles down a dirt road. Most other sporty sedans have a more arse up stance. If it speeds up the steering a little I won't be crying either.
Anyways, that's the plan. Hope you like, etc!
