    ..............

    Sup.... yea it's a billet grill, I got a little E-Bay happy when I first got it. The stickers & everything... well I'm just putting those up there whenever I buy a new part for my subie, just to make me feel that I accomplished a little more each mod. OH... but everything's coming off when I get my (Drk Cherry) paintjob & CF hood. I'm taking the bottom grill & foglights out to make room for the FMIC & I'll get a Rollcall after the paintjob. Not really going for the sleeper look, just the "not your average WRX look"... you know?

    sorry but this is really funny considering the a few pictures down was the stock TMIC.

    Also this is by no means a sleeper.

    I will try not to be too harsh, mostly because you are a n00b and my guess is that you are still very young. Lose the blow off valve. Most of us agree that it causes more problems than its worth. Second point, lose the stickers. You call your WRX a sleeper, but the stickers make it anything but a sleeper.I think that its great that you want to mod, but you have had a little too much Mary J if you need stickers to make you feel that you have accomplished something after each mod. I don't want to call your carrice. I really really don't. However, the path that you are currently heading down is a one way ticket to the depths of RICE. Those taillights kill me. I am not trying to rip on your car, but I want you to understand that WRXs are a cut above most other cars. There is nothing wrong with stickers, body kits, BOVs, but think about them in great detail before you do them. Here is one of, if not THE sickest WRX here.....



    Good luck kid, keep it tasteful!

    FIRST OF ALL, to clear some up some apparent "confusion" in this thread:

    He's not going for the 'sleeper' look....nuff said!!!


    SECOND OF ALL,
    I don't think any of y'all have any right to tell him what he should/should not do with his car. He's not talking about putting a park bench wing on or Fast&Furious decals. Just a few stickers, etc. Who knows, it may actually look NICE when it's done!!! Plenty of members on here have stickers, cleared taillights, all kind of crazy stuff done to their cars! Some even borderline rice. But y'all are being pretty judgemental IMO. Furthermore, yes the BOV is bad. We tell people ALL the time. But they continue to get them. As long as it's a recirculating one then fine. Some people will throw down $200 for a kazoo. So be it. But I think some of you are jumping on this fellow member's ass a little prematurely. His vision could turn out to be pretty cool, we'll just have to wait and see.

    Everybody has different tastes/opinions/likes. And personally, I like the world better that way!

    This is a debate I see in all of my car clubs. The easiest way around it is, ignore it. When someone does some aftermarket goodness to their ride that I am not so keen on, I ignore it. If they ask for opinions on what they did.... then I give the opinion.

    I have my own ride to worry about. They can do whatever they want to theirs.

    My advice.... if you dont like what they have to offer, nod your head when they talk, then laugh behind the curtain.

    Here we go....

    .... First of all I never feel that I have to explain myself or what I do with MY WRX to anyone, but I guess I could clear the air & enlighten the real "noobies". lol... first, how can you call me young when I'm almost 26 years old? I don't know weather to be thankful or pissed off? Anyway... for someone who's probably never been to Japan & seen what REAL SUBARU's look like, they look a lot like these.

    Oh yea... & the HKS bov & TT I got for like $50 (american) in Japan before I left.... can't beat a sale...

    When I went to local dealers & auto hobby shops to look at skylines, mr2's, rx-7's, silvias, 240's, evo's, & STI's most of them were rallied out w/ all kinds of stickers on it, but everyone doesn't have the same taste. If you ever do get to go to japan or even europe & experience the real "Import Scene" then maybe...... MAYBE you can give me advice on what a JDM Rally Spec. STI looks like... b/c that's what they are anyway(Rally Cars) just a little watered down. Until then keep reading about it in the magazines you read or ask me or someone else who know's better.

    i think most of the lite criticism came only because you called your car a "sleeper"...you have a nice car man and most everyone here loves bugeyes regardless of the stickers you have or the BOV thats on it...they are just kinda tellin you callin something with decals and a BOV a sleeper is kinda not only on the "n00b" side but also on the ignorant side...i think general consensus is that BOV and company decals that are overly used (not saying your car) on wrxs arent the path most usdm owners go...

    i think everyone on the site agrees "to each his own"

    nice car again man
