    3 or 4 months into my Subaru

    Whatsup?
    I've had my 07 WRX for about 3 or 4 months now, but I suppose I'm still a newb

    My 2007 SPT WRX
    Mods that are on it (and were on it when I bought it brand new) are: SPT intake, SPT cat-back exhaust, STi short shifter, and STi pinks (springs)




    newb question time : Since they didnt have any WRX's without a spoiler on the lot, I just got one with a spoiler...they said they could take it off, but there'd be holes, so i was like **** that. It doesnt bother me as much now as it did before, but if I'm going to have a spoiler I'd rather have an STi spoiler....more aggresive look IMO. I'll get called ricer, but I had a civic before this, so it wont be anything new. OK! my question is, does the STi spoiler have the same "bolt/hole pattern"on the trunk lid that the WRX impreza spoiler has?

    other big decision.....blacked out with the wheels....or go true WRX style and get bronze rims?

    It's much easier to swap trunks/release assemblies then it is to demount and remount wings. Not to mention I dont think the bolt holes are the same.

    As for your wheels IMHO go black. If you are painting the stockers bronze would look silly. Black car+black tint+black wheels=sex.

    Hmm.. Isn't the saying "Once you go black, you never go back." ??

    Oh wait, that doesn't pertain to wheels, does it?

    Yeah, black or bronze would be sweet...

    im not painting the stockies, im going to get a diff. set of rims.
    Dont know which oens yet,....cause i cant decide what color yet

    I'm thinking something close to the stock STi wheels look. Kinda like the Rota Tarmac 3's - only I'd rather stay at a 17" rim

    you put the spt stickers on there, or did it come from the dealer like that?
