    looks really good. The front end looks so sweet, mine is getting hammered by little rocks and whatever. It's so sad, I already want to redo the front bumper

    Is it me, or does the bumper seem a little cheap? I don't remember my integra('01) getting this dinged up until after a few years. Maybe it was just the Utah winter.

    Yea I thought about getting that clear 3m film you put around the front bumper to protect it from chipping.

    Car is beautiful. The stock rims and skirts look amazing. What are you going to add first??

    I keep looking at the pearle white with jealousy.

    Ahhh...guess that answers my own question!! The tint was definitely a nice move. Amazing that none of the WRX's come with stock tint. Guess cuz they're more of a coupe hatchback than wagon?

    Thanks! Next I think I'm going to get a cat back. I'm just trying to decide which one.

    I'm trying to figure out the differences between the SPT, Cobb, and Perrin cat backs... Are they all about the same loudness? Any downsides or drawbacks to installing a downpipe? My buddy was saying that it makes the turbo spool up faster which could burn it up.

    How loud do you want it? (tough question to quantify)
    They have a nice little exhaust 'loudness' comparison in the newbie section FAQ. Maybe take a look.

    The Cobb is not on the comparison, but I've heard that Cobb makes great WRX exhaust systems. No experience though.
