My first mod

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 Stripeman.com 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

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

Good luck.

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.

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.
