    I've always heard that Jersey cops are ****s. But I guess the state laws kinda encourage them lol.

    Tint laws have been around for a long time. The difference now is 1.equipment to check for violations is cheap (<$200) and 2.Its all about the money baby, why stop violent crime when you can have fun hassling people and making easy $$. OK, I'm glad I got that off my chest.

    supa, your car is one of the hottest I've laid eyes on. Lack of tint gives a view of the interior and Subaru has done a nice job on the current WRX's.

    Well that sucks. Even a 35% tint (which is more than legal in most states) Would set this car off quite a bit. In the pictures posted on page 5 (non-noob settings) You can see smudge marks and it just throws off your whole "Dark Side" scheme in my opinion.

    That being said, it's your car. Do what you want. Just wanted to share my thoughts.

    I'm going to agree on desperate need of some tint. And some painting of the headlights. Swap out to a Bi-xenon projector, get rid of the high beam bulb and paint everything to match the rest the car

    The purple tint is awesome. Goes well with the chrome lower side panel stickers.

    Yes excessively so.

    As posted below no it's because the wheels won't fit correctly so that's the only way to deal with it without doing fender mods or correctly changing a lot about the suspension setup.

    Don't get me wrong the car looks good but I just don't know why you'd buy an STI and intentionally hurt the performance and safety of your vehicle just for appearance.

While Supa's stance is showing a bit of negative camber, it's not as excessive as many who have gone way too far. While a degree or so of negative camber can help improve handling characteristics of a Subaru, negative camber to an extreme degree is just a faster way to chew through tires and have sub-par handling for the sake of the herrafrush look.
    Yes exactly.

    That's really my biggest thing is I don't understand why somebody would intentionally hurt the performance of their car. It just looks kind of dumb too. But that being said, it's very apparent the OP doesn't really care about performance and really just cares about looks. It's his car so more power to him and that's entirely his decision. I just hope he remembers what he's done to the performance if/when he tries to drive it aggressively on public roads with other drivers around. I don't respect people that knowingly, negatively change their car's performance and put other drivers at risk. As long as he's not doing this, then who really cares?

    You guys need to relax and let the stance thing happen. Is it your cup of tea? Obviously not, we get it. Just 'cause the tea is served, doesn't mean you have to drink it.

    As an example, I find silver cars to be absolutely abhorrent. Depending upon the shade/saturation, sometimse I almost vomit. Who cares? I would never consider dissing a guy with a silver car in a thread he started within which he is showcasing his ride.

    I am at a loss, at this point.

    Agreed. I like when they put fender vent stickers on their doors, and fake hood scoops, there's something about that look that is just pure uncut awesome.
