2006 Visuals

Ok all, you know im happy with performance SO far.....I can use a turbo but Im putting a pause on that at the moment....Its time to work on visual!

I am in the midst of ordering rims Rota SDRs in 17 or 18s

Im also "with in the month" getting the STI wing put on my car.


Now: I have to get wing painted, I also was thinking of the following design:

NOW if anyone had the choice of getting a design or paint job to there car
"Custom" this guy is top line pro.....


Ideas on paint job? I was thinking ESX style strip as in above image, then with the STI wing, rims and my windows tinted my end of month/early 1st week of Feb. What you guys think? Make it stand out?

Any ideas on a custom paint/design/graphic feel free to post pics and or comments on this Thanks guys appreciate all the assistance and I need comments, you guys are my judges and if I am attending car shows this year I want to make sure im ready!

Yea yoou should make it stand out. And if you got a bad a$$ 06 wrx and then maybe more people will sponser you at car shows and you can get alot of discounts on performance stuff or visual stuff and all that. But your car would look sick with the stripe and sti wing and if you get headlight covers and tint and the rims that you are getting.

Why not go for the full sleeper look? That looks okay....I guess. There are ways to get limited sponsors online (my buddy got one for his Prelude) they help out to a certain extent. Maybe call the company and offer to take it to shows or auto-x races and maybe they will help with the price or something? I dont think I would go for it on my car, but I like the sleeper look not the "LOOK OVER HERE MR PO PO I'M SPEEDING!!!" look.

i agree, and no one does the stripe like our infamous canadiansub...


i say make it look stealth but thats just me.. i am trading a guy on i-club trunks, my trunk with a wing, for his trunk w/o the wing.. after that i want some black or dark rims that give it a stealth look.. unless you are 117% show its not worth the money.

I really like the ESX stripe down the middle of the car.

The problem is that the 06's haven't been around for long, so you don't have a lot of 'examples' to see what works and what doesn't. Probably why it's so hard to figure out what to do.

Personally, I have my exterior goal set ahead of me as full JDM front end conversion (grille, lip, and fogs), get around to repairing my side skirt damage from the winter months, install the strakes that have been sitting in the garage. For the rear, install an 06 STi roof wing, and MAYBE a 22B wing (i might keep the stocker wing), and the 02/03 rear skirt/diffuser mod.

To top it off, a pearl white paintjob with a solid black stripe down the center. I have an 04 of course, so that mod list would look nothing like the 06. I think the s204 limited sti looks GREAT.
