Hi!

This is my car, a Subaru Impreza. I own it for 1 year and some months now.

At this time it has another front grill, a HTAutos (UnitedKingdom) one...
Clear signal lights at the bumper and the car is crashed. :\

For the second time i crashed my car... I already crashed once, on a gully, doing 'drifts'.. And now i crashed on the pavement, after NOT doing a curve... Alcohol+WetRoad+Speeding=WreckedSubaru.

Well, i bought this car totally stock, as seen on the pictures below:

But it didn't keep for long... Here's a mod list i remember:
Dual Halo Projector Headlights (w/ angel eyes)
HTAutos front grill
'98+ front bumper (customized)
Clear bumper lights
Clear fender lights
Altezza black taillights
No emblems (shaved) at the trunk
RTech fiberglass wing
Zelo 4" exhaust muffler
Feeder springs (lowering)
Enkei Evo5 Gold 18" (customized)
Toyo Proxes T1R 215/35
Tinted windows
Momo Millenium Sport steering wheel
EuroReverse Glow dash
AutoMeter C2 gauges
Silver dash trim (customized)

Here are more pics. Hope you like it!

Hawtness!

1. Needs better wheels. Prodrive PFF-7s would set it off.
2. Needs less riced tail lights. I feel sorry for the poor thing.
3. Needs a full EJ257 swap.
4. Needs this bumper:

5. Needs a smaller spoiler.
6. NEEDS TO BE BLACK!

Other than that, I envy you :P

Better wheels? Those ones there are Enkey 18", and the set here (with tires) costs about US$ 5k.
Its one of the best combo I could see for a Subbie like this.

Im not a big fan of altezza tails, but they look ok on his Subbie, and it fits the owners style.
The bumper you posted isnt the better one for the Impreza.
The spoiler is very cool on the car.. Dont care for being smaller, and no, its no rice.
Color is a matter of taste.

I believe we have another Subaru Mafia member :o

Damn, nice looking GC right there. I must say the black on white gauges look really great.

What's the offset on those rims? It looks like you're running it really aggressively.

Kinda Ricey with that whale of a spoiler you have on the back, plus that coffee can exhaust.

1 - No way! I love those wheels. Like Prodrive, Enkei make 'factory/stock' Subaru wheels too... Just see the manufactory of the new STi rims ;)
PLUS, they are kinda rare here on Brazil. Gold like mine (not bronze) are unique.
2 - Yeah, you're right. Headlights and taillights are ricey, but i like them 8)
3 - I agree, but engine swaps in Brazil aren't cheap like on America. But Turbo is coming. :evil:
4 - I think that bumper is very beautiful, but every SubieOwner around here put that part. I like to be different from the crowd.
5 - Disagreed. Subaru screams for big wings :D
6 - Black doesn't show on the crowd.

Impreza offset: 50~55. My rims: 35 :rolleyes5

Totally agreed. Yes, my car is ricey, but i love its style ;)

Sick ride man! I'm loving those wheels and the paintjob. :) And by the way, old Imprezas are the only ones that I like.

Haha, at least you agree with some of my points. I was actually contemplating buying the Enkei wheels from the Legacy Tuned By STI. Don't get me wrong, those wheels look great on your car, but I prefer Prodrives on GC Imprezas.

I think the V5 STi front bumper with STi fog light covers would suit your car; your current bumper reminds me of the cheap-looking 1998-01 2.5RS bumper :\ Some V5 STi rear spats would look sweet, too ;)

What kind of turbo are you planning on installing? Do you have plans for other mods, like a tranny swap or a BBK?

I'm sure the guys and girls at www.nasioc.com or even www.rs25.com would love to see this beautiful GC ;)

I think we have another member of the Subaru Mafia, too.

It sure is a very cool Subaru!!! Even though black is a popular color for sports cars, but I like it in red too. I like the big exhaust, spoiler & those taillights.
