I understand the poser value of badging a car that isn't (STI for example) But you guys have got to admit that the pink subaru emblem on the grill looks pretty sweet on a blue WRX. What do you guys think?

This has been talked about forever. I got a Pink i for my WR Blue car and will be putting it on. Their is nothing wrong with putting a STI sticker or badge on if you have a STI part.

Hey fengshui,

If you ever find that blue cluster put some pics up I might be interested.

I dunno about the pink, I've never really liked it. Blue OTOH looks good, and probably always will. .02

Pink is the traditional subie color for the WRX STi, but I wouldnt put it on my car, Ill be using the Blue "i" emblem instead. Plus its rare to find anyone that knows about our cars so they'll probably think your gay or something for having a pink emblem heh.

I've always thought the same thing but I didn't want to be the first one to mention it. Thanks Nex!

Please don't pay for a blue cluster like that. Take off your badge with a thin bladed screwdriver wrapped in tape, remove black paint with fingernail polish remover, and paint it blue.

I'd post pics of mine, but I don't have any currently and don't have a digi cam.

Looking at the new STi Genome aftermarket parts and accessories in the new Japanese magazines, it seems like there is now yellow painted trim. For example, the STi strut bar with the pink ends, are now yellow. I'll have to dig up that mag and see exactly what else will be yellow...

I guess I could use the same code paint as my car, what is the code for Blue Ridge Pearl?

I just used some WRBP touch up paint that I got free from the dealer. Do you need the paint code for World Rally Blue Pearl, because I could get that off the bottle of touch up paint later if you still need it.

Pop your hood and look at the silver plate next to the driver-side strut mount. You'll see your chassis and paint code along with others...
