My first mod
 
2 Attachment(s)
I had my first mod installed last week. I have not posted before now 'cause well, driving a WRX is more fun than reading about one :)

Anyhow I ordered pinstripes from [URL="http://www.stripeman.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=Graphics&Product_Code=4485Flame&Category_Code=FEATURED"]Stripeman.com[/URL] then I had them installed by Auto Body Techniques in Wheaton, IL. I think they turned out pretty good... I went with Bay Gold Metallic because Gold Metallic was a little to bold... Bay Gold is a shade lighter.

The best part is that in ricer tradition, I just added 5 hp per side... that's a gain of 10 hp for less than $200 !Thumbs Up

Meh, never liked pinstripes because when you wax/detail it they always seem to add an hour to the time hahahaha.

And these may add 3 hours to your time :p

Good luck.

Personally, I don't like it, but way to be different!

I don't like it either. But as long as it makes you happy than thats all that matters.

I've always been a fan of flamed out hot rods....I guess this is as close as is it gets for a WRX!Thumbs Up

If you want flames, a nice painted set of white ghost flames would probably look sick.

Man rough crowd... I don't think I have said anything negative about someone else's car here... There is enough hate in the news I shouldn't have to see it in a post about my car.

Maybe I'm being over sensitive, but I have wanted a new WRX for a very lonnnnnnng time. Now that I finally have it, I'm making it MINE. So if you don't mind, I have a date with a plasma blue WRX with flames... we're going for a drive.

To those who had something nice to say, or thought I was crazy, but moved on, Thank you. And if I somehow misunderstood what was said, I apologize.

You asked for opinions in a way by sayin "I think they turned out pretty good".

All that matters is that you like it.

WrxCruising 02-15-2012 11:36 AM

Nobody said anything bad about it. They said there own opinions and as long as you like it, it shouldn't matter what anyone else says.
