    The car was originally midnight black pearl (the roof still is for added contrast). I had it repainted last fall after a keying incident. The car's been in storage all winter until a couple weeks ago. I took a few quick shots of it with my friend's turbo GSR at the park this weekend:

    Looks good. Not a fan of the hood or wing though. Clean GSR too

    the hood is a C-west knockoff (VIS) and the wing is an STi V5 replica made to fit the new body style. thanks for the compliments so far :)

    Looked good in both incarnations. What's the intel inside-looking sticker say? Your friends teg is sweet too, very clean. Just the way I like it. Oh AND turbo.

    That hoodscoop is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. Also, why would you store an AWD vehicle for winter?

    I am at least as low, just toss the stockers back on and you should have waited until summer for the paint job.

    ...why?

    If he doesn't have to then why do it?

    Looks pretty good. Kinda tacky with all that stuff put on it. Isn't SOM and GM color?

    That subaru would be sick if you replaced those wheels with the bronze BBS, put the stock hood/air scoop back on, took the eyelids off, and replaced the fog lights with clear lense instead of yellow.
