I was daydreaming the other day about how to differentiate my 03 WRX from all the other silver cars out there and the idea came across my mind of giving it a center stripe or stripes. My initial knee jerk response is to go with a pair black of stripes right down the center of the hood, going the length of the car, like some of the old muscle cars.

I was curious as to if anyone has any pictures of a Rex with a scheme anything like this (any color, any number of stripes)....or if anyone would like of photoshop a silver rex with old school twin stripes. So far, all I've found is the one silver wagon with the purple-multi-color paint, which didn't work too well for me (although I think it is cool).

Curious if I am unique creative or just plain have bad taste :)

Chweck the STi forum, there is a guy with a WRB STi and he has a white racing stripe, it looks surprisingly good. I wouldn't suggest it on an 03 model though (i can't imagine a bugeyed rex with a racing stripe) some call it rice, it depends though....

Thanks for the help --- I found that WRB with the twin white stripes. Using that to magine my unwinged WRX w/bug-eyes, I have a feeling it'll end up feeling like a giant Cooper....oh well, back to the drawing board.....

The dealership I bought my car from actually had a light yellow car with a black stripe down the middle, and pos custom rims. Needless to say I just walked right past that one. btw it was brand new too not a used one.

ugh, a stripe down the middle, I think you are looking for the wrong car, the ford dealership is ----> that way :) Honestly I think it would look horible, if you want your car to be different get some new wheels, maybe some new headlights, or mod the exhaust or something.

as much as i would hate to say this, i think it would be fine to have racing stripes, if your car could back it up

If you want original, I think it would be bad ass, getting a Black rex, and putting like paint splashes on it (White splashes) I think that would lookm pretty good, Or with silver base, use black splashes. Get a 35% Window tink to show the black, and some powder coated Black rims. I think that would be original as ****, and would look awesome. I've always likes that look...Meh =p
