So this is my daily ride.. bought it at the start of the year.. my 2nd car as i totalled my civic EG few weeks before.. everything was completely stock and this is where my love for Subaru's and modifications began..!!

Enjoy:)

Here is what it looked like on the night i purchased it.. like i said.. completely stock!

Next was the front lip. Bought off ebay for $30 from the states.. However, shipping added another $100.

The sound system was next where i bought myself a pioneer touch screen head unit as well as two front speakers and splitters.. I also added 2 10" pioneer subs which were from my old smashed up civic.

After a few hard weeks of saving i got myself a new set of ROTA wheels. 18x7.5 metal grey. Before i put the new wheels on i spray painted my brake calipers RED to add the 25kw!

With new wheels it made my subie look so high off the ground.. So next up was to get some low.

One morning i drove up to AllSprings Liverpool.. The guy recommended just to get my stock springs compressed instead of buying a new set of sprngs.. i thought it was the right decision at the time.. :/

Once the springs had settled in.. the car was TOO low on the rear which my mates labelled it more LEBSPEC than JAPSPEC.. after months of such a terrible ride and not able to fit even one passenger in the back i decided to save up for something i should had from the beginning !!

While waiting for my long awaited package to arrive i invested in these..

Then the day after.. (Neotech Coilovers from NZ, full height adjustable and camber)

Finally the impreza is at a stage that i am happy with. It sits very nicely and now handles LIKE A BOSS !! Next stop is a drive around Wakefield Park to see how it performs.. At present this is what my beloved impreza looks like.. :)

Some say i've spent way too much on this car as it is only NA.. but i figured that i'll be having this for a LONG TIME so why not? If it makes u happy then do it! Hoping to upgrade to an 06STi in the future but we'll see how long that will take..

There u go !

thanks.. why does my photos appear on ur post but not my thread..?

TyD
11-11-11, 08:02 PM
just copy and paste my post into your thread

you need to get the image url and put at the start and at the end (eg. www.sample.com/thgs ) If you're using google chrome you can just right click and then left click on "copy image url" or if you're using firefox or ei you will need to right click on the image go to the very bottom option, click that then get the url from there.

Or when you upload the image you will need to copy the image url from there..

Try using photobucket.

11-11-11, 10:54 PM
wingless..? hmm nah never thought of that.. come to think of it.. i dont think it'll look complete without a wing.. just my opinion anyway.. haha but ppl can also argue that it doesnt look complete without a bonnet scoop!!

thanks for the positive comments guys!!

Clean ride mate.. nicely done :)

I just sold my 07 Impreza today! I think I'm gonna miss it :(

If you haven't already looked in it, get a 22mm adjustable swaybar with mounts and HD links. That, plus lowered springs and a slightly more aggressive wheel alignment meant that mine actually kept up with the wrx's through the twisties... much to their disbelief :lol:

Also maybe look into some unequal length headers off good old Ebay. Get some sexy subie rumble going... something like this :mrgreen:

Funny you should say that.. I'm actually trying to get rid of my old swaybar kit over there -> http://www.rexnet.com.au/forum/index.php?/topic/139425-whiteline-stuff/. There's also a whole bunch of NA subie parts left over from the old car that I'm just about to put up for sale :).

I hope JDMST mods are cool with posting a link to another forum on here?

looks great! how do the coilovers feel? are they too bumpy for street use?

mrdommz1
14-11-11, 02:04 PM
coilovers were a MASSIVE difference.. should had been the first mod i done to the impreza and i highly recommend it be the FIRST mod.. coilovers seem as though u can feel every bump on the road but u can always change how hard or soft u want them..

iceman just watched your utube video.. i think i'l have to get UEL headers soon..

thanks yo!! a guy from sydney guard rolling is coming down to do the rears coz the rears are scrubbing like crazy!! i might have to dodgy the fronts myself but atm they arn't scrubbing..

after guards are rolled more low for sure!

Looking good man..
No need to go wingless, you'll be nude.

mrdommz1
11-01-12, 01:11 AM
i agree.. going wingless would feel nude.. although im thinking of purchasing a STI wing? what are your thoughts? problem is im gonna sell this subie soon..

CuppaJDM
11-01-12, 01:40 AM
If your selling up for fulls soon, just leave it as it is.. not it to further invest in the car.

The STi wing would look a bit too much wannabe if you get me?
