sorry boss to be honest i dont like it. the stock rex wing is the only one that looks good on the wrx. the sti wing belongs on the sti and nothing else. the wing you have should be for something else. i dont think it lines up with the car at all. the rims....not diggin the blue on it.

CF screams rice to me.



again its your car and you do what you want with it. dont be upset at all over my comments. we all have our opinions and likes/dislikes.




EDIT: those fog covers ARE badass tho lol - where you get them?

Looks good man, you should black-out the headlights too. That'll look really cool!

I like the blue accents on the rims. It will help bring out the blue in the paint. I am thinking about doing the same kind of thing. The car Looks good man. Need to make that gap around the tire smaller though.

That thing would look mean with a set of Morettes and if it were dropped a little bit..

That's funny. But yeah, how wide are your rims? I don't know if it's just me or the angle where you took the pictures, but your tires look skinny.

Overall it's a nice ride. +1

sorry for the delay in repost.. built a new computer and was down for a couple days. rims are 17x7. i got the fog light covers on ebay. now hardware to put them in.. they just pop in. im going to get some black headlights asap.. would be nice to find a cheap set of Morettes but if i cant ill just rock the black ones.. also going to black out the taillights.and yes i know bout that made wheel gap.. im going to do LOTS AND LOTS of research b4 i buy some springs/combo set. on my last ride i had a full tein setup and it was a rough ride. im looking for something very close to stock feel but with the lower stance. and to the comment to the wing i think it goes well with the whole thing.. and plus that wing was on the car when i bought it.. so im going to rock it. thanks for all the comments. promise next time ill comment back asap

the rims are perfect for my setup.at certain views u can see blue in the paint job.. and the whole interior is black and blue.. so when i seen the rims on konigs site i had to get them.. plus great price at at 96 per rim with free shipping to my door..

Here's another idea: have you considered painting your calipers and/or the parts of your rotors where the brake pads DON'T contact them with high temp caliper paint... black... or... blue? That would clean that area up a bit and it would go with your scheme - and I'm sure some of you will laugh at the idea, but I think it would look alright on that particular car.

I like the setup.. I am going for the same look. Except I have a wagon. I really like the way the paint shows the blue. It was a great suprise when i bought the car. I dig it.

good idea.. i never thought of that.. the only hard part would to get the closest blue to the etched out part thats on the rims.. but with most caliper paint they only have one shade of blue

Yeah, that's true.. and you'd definitely want to at least use some type of high-temp paint so it lasts. I can vouch for the regular caliper paint as I've used it on several different cars and it has held up pretty well over a period of years with only a few chips from regular debris damage. Black would probably look just fine and it would clean the area up a bit. Now get to it and take some more pics!
