Stainless was the deciding factor. Loudness doesn't really bother me. The cops dont appreciate my straight piping at the moment though.

Got my custom Walmart JDM cutting board mud flaps installed. I just need to add something to them so they're not as plain.

Love the look of these... did you just leave them whole? What I mean is, did you cut them at all or install as is? They look great.. Im with you on adding something to them. How much were these at wal mart? Maybe get some sticker letters and just put SUBARU on them.

I agree, those came out really well, and the red looks good especially with the white wheels. maybe get out some painter's tape and continue with the two tone, 2.5rsobs?

To make them fit I only had to cut off 2 inches off of the inside to clear the sway bars. You would need to cut off more if you wanted to tuck them in farther. I'm going to email subaru' s customer service for decals. The total cost at Wal-Mart was $4.86.

Oooo gotcha. The silver bumper is only temporary until I can buy paint because the whole paint job sucks lol. It's a good way to learn to paint. Also my mud flaps we work great an don' t flap.

Just got a shipping update from FedEx. Exhaust should be here Saturday hopefully sooner thought my car sounds terrible. Ooooo and my friends officially named my car a little because of its multicoloredness.
