Mine is silver as well. ^^ has the right idea. Soon I will be going with a light tint and painting the stockers black. In the future I plan to do both the seibon CWII hood and seibon CF trunk lid. I just think silver and black go well together, give it a stealthy look. Z

I got a silver too. I am powder coating stock rims black for now. I going to paint the badges black as well. I am doing a medium tint all around this week. I kind of like the JDM black out style headlights on the bugeye as well to tie it all together. My wing is gone ASAP, Wingless silver looks wicked, IMO. When I get new rims I was looking at the STi BBS or a BBS style (BBS LMs are my fav, look em up) spoke rim thats a little bigger (no bigger then 17"), but those would be powder coated black as well. I just got mine, so I haven't started yet. As soon as I put some style on her I'll post some pics. I don't want to bore you with "another" silver WRX. lol

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.

^^^ hate the wing and that hood needs to be painted the same color of the car, and come on, silver center caps. did he run out of paint?

Yeah, I agree with you nagy on the silver center caps, he said he left it silver for contrast...eh...the hood...I like the CF look, but I also agree on the wing being nagy, I mean nasty Z

Gold rims belong on black cars only. IMO All others get black rims.

Thats why I said IMO. To each there own. I cant stand silver rims.

02wrxnfx - thats what I'm talkin about. Black rims just make a car look like it can actually do something other than look pretty. Mad MAx Stylie!
