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.
It´s one of the best combo I could see for a Subbie like this.

I´m not a big fan of altezza tails, but they look ok on his Subbie, and it fits the owner´s style.
The bumper you posted isn´t the better one for the Impreza.
The spoiler is very cool on the car.. Don´t care for being smaller, and no, it´s 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.
