    Unpainted panels look kitsch at best, and the more common the car, the worse they look -- the Impreza is a mass produced Japanese car.

    I suggest you stay off the swear filter.

    My posts have not contained personal insults; these are not permitted. Your initial response, saying one car looks better than another (mine), also did not contain personal insults. However your second post does (I think; I can't read the ***s word due to the swear filter -- but that should not be used outside of Off Topic and only sparingly in Off Topic anyway).

    Asking for opinions will generate opinions. One thing you are absolutely correct about though is that I don't have to like another car, and you don't have to like mine.

    It matters because there are rules for the fora, and it matters because the thread is at the point of not being civil any more.

    In any case I'm letting this be, with apologies to the OP for derailing the thread.

    Personally...I love the look of CF. I think that car looks great!

    Though as Kevin said, I something like painting with a lot of taped off or CF racing stripes would be badass too!

    Obviously OP bought the car because she liked something about the looks of it as is.

    Nowhere did SD say it was tacky...he just provided an opinion, as did the rest of anyone else who agreed to liking it, or disagreed. Some people crack me up

    The LW flywheel and Ti exhaust could drop some more weight. But there certainly isn't much else you could do to that car given the large list it has!

    ****THE FOLLOWING POST IS NOT ABOUT THE OP'S CAR. IT'S SPEAKING IN GENERAL****

    I, an 8 yr modified Subaru veteran, look down on Subarus because of the junk that the current generation of owners put on or do to their Subarus. Since 2006 there has been a massive influx of ricers in the Subaru community. When someone does something tacky (again, I'm speaking in general, not about the OP), it does look bad on Subaru owners. Subarus are now the new VW-Honda. Any old timer can tell you this. This is why I'm so harsh at times on NASIOC against certain trends (and to a lesser extent on here), because many of the "koo kid" mods people want make us look bad to everyone else.

    this whole thread is turning into a big steaming pile of meh

    seriously, this will go nowhere fast. People seem to either love the look of CF or think it's ricey -- there's no in between. I, personally would paint the CF, but I guess I'm on that side of the Iron Curtain.
