Updated photos of my car. Wheels repainted

Also got gunmetal Rays lug nuts and matching Rays valve stems. Still experimenting on taking photography like the pros.

There are no STi badges on my car. Just the decal on the foglight covers. I considered leaving them blank, but it looks to bare and needed something there to fill it out. Thanks for all the comments. And yes, the car is lowered with Tein H-Techs.

And you can't see them in the photos, but I repainted the rims to Midnight Black Metaillic, so it has metallic flakes in it that glimmers in sunlight.

VEW, where did you get the paint from? I have used Duplicolor before but I have never seen that color.

It's a Rustoleum color. Black Night Metallic I believe it was. Got it at Lowes.

I think you have the cleanest car on earth! IMO it would look a little better if you lost your wing and went with the 07 limited decklid spoiler.
The rims look great, good color choice

Nice. So whats the trick with putting the STI BBS wheels on a wrx? I want those exact wheels on my 06 wrx but will probably paint them flat black. Car looks sik though. Z

You need a set from a 2004 STi. Only BBS rims for the STi that have the 5x100 bolt pattern. Flat black is harder to maintain since it is not smooth. It's more difficult to clean, so keep that in mind before you settle on a color choice.

All wrx's and 04 STi= 5 x 100
All 05 STi's + = 5 x 114.3
