    Cool New 2003 wrx owner in texas!

    Hey whats up guys im a new member here and owner of a platinum silver 03 wrx. It has 160000 and needs some cosmetic work and bushing work as all cars with higher milage will need. I bought the car for 4000$! Im going to school for autobody and paint amd figured it would be a good project! It has an after market intake on it that drops down into the fender. My goal is to do basic bolt ons such as: uppipe, TBE, maybe a bigger tmic and a tune. Im not trying to do anything insane as im in college and dont want to bankrupt myself. Ill update this thread later with pics.

    I like the wheels. The bugeyes will run forever, 200k+ miles without any major work. If you don't go past stage 2 it will last you a very long time.

    Thanks man! I dont really care for black rims but i was thinking of painting them gunmetal grey. And maybe black projector headlights that are of decent quality? Then lower it woth stiffer springs/struts to get rid of the tire to fender gap. Any recommendations?

    Check out how to's on the Koji mod for blacking out your stock headlight housings. It looks great and it super cheap. Your other headlight options are:
    - JDM STi Projectors (rare and pricey)
    - Morette Projectors (rare and pricey)
    - Orciari Projectors (rare and pricey)
    - Ebay halo headlights (cheap but poor quality and need to be rewired to work)
    - Other knockoffs (various ones will pop up, do what you feel is safe)
