Good job getting the best color. The accessport (or an opensource tune) makes this car run totally better.

Congrats on the WRX!
I agree you picked a great color.
Also you got a awesome mod list going. I can't wait to see the car with the tint it's going to look very clean.

I removed the small brackets on the hella horns and bolted the horns directly on the subimods bracket... I think this is what I was supposed to do in the beginning... but oh well. lol didnt take too long.

thanks. was a pain to install... might have to take the bumper off later and check everything (when i put the dual color LED turn signals in). next is going to be 35% tint, 50% tint on the clear part of the tail lights, and maybe some black out for the chrome strip under the windows on the doors.
oh.. and buying new WRX badges for the front and back of the car..
Paint thinner to remove chrome, priming, red paint, and finally clear coat.. then will fully debadge the rear of the car (except new red WRX logo) :)

Hello I have this same car, it is awesome! I was planning on putting the Nameless muffler delete on mine as well. Why are you changing yours already?

Mainly because i want to get the 3.5" staggered black powdercoat version. The only "issue" i have ever had with the md kit is i travel 20 miles a day on freeways to/from work and it is a tad bit loud. on city streets it is perfectly fine and sounds awesome. i would definitely recommend it if u don't freeway drive all day or don't mind loud noise. (it does overpower road noise when on the throttle at 2600-2900rpm 60-70mph)

Awesome subie, I was gonna go grey if I didn't go with the WRB. This car just worked out for me. I think that either one is a great color. Why switch out the horns??

lol thanks, ya i love both colors. "honestly I picked the DGM because I am kind of anal about color matching and I hate how the interior is red and the exterior is blue... I WISH I could (From the manufacturer) have the red in the dash be blue, and the wrx/stitching be blue... lol.
and I changed the horns just for fun.. they look cooler then the tiny stock horn and they are super loud which is just fun. :p

That is funny I was thinking of taking off the Subaru & Impreza badges and leaving the rest, maybe with a tint over the badges
