    yeah thats another good way of doing it. Im sticking ith a strict red / black theme for my car, each man to his own though for sure

    One thing though I dont think the cut outs look the best on a red car, my opinion though of course. This STI is an absoloute beast, I just dont like the tails....

    I will never own another black car. It was way too much of a pain in the ass to keep my 325i clean and swirl free.

    I will never tint any kind of exterior lighting on any of my cars. Yours don't look too dark, but I've seen retards tint them to the point where you can no longer see the light, and you can barely see the light through them when the brakes are on. Plus it's too much of a hassle with law enforcement. It's bad enough having a bright red car .

    Red tails w/ cutout on LR. This is how the lights should have come from the factory...I don't know wtf Subaru was thinking when they designed the tails on the 5-door. They got the tails on the sedan right.

    That red looks waaaay better than the black cut outs!

    The reason I chose such a light tint is for that exact reason, safety first and law second. To be honest if the tail lights were not LED I probably would not have done it at all.
    Ive had no trouble with the law so far, unlike a friend whos tails are so dark its just dangerous, I would never do that!

    Sweep needles on gauges

    Yes, they do. The manual explains how to cancel this feature if you don't like it.

    I took my factory racks off after three weeks because they were too flexy with bikes loaded. The towers left marks on the black paint. It is nothing someone would probably notice unless they knew they were there. I switched over to actual Yakima racks which make more noise but are more solid.

    Are you still using the factory cross bars? If not I would LOOOOOOVE to take them off your hands!
    Your vehicle is an extension of your skill as a driver, not a substitute for it.

    Forgot about this. Picked up a set of Dunlop WinterSport 3D tires last week since the stock tires are completely useless in the winter. Took it out into the snow the night I got the tires on and had some fun.
