Some pics of when I first picked the car up.

It all started with a bone stock Subaru Impreza 2000 2.5RS Coupe 5-speed

Then came some audio mods, speakers, and a head unit. Also tinted the windows, threw on some red flaps and a stromung cat back (best Subaru rumble I've ever heard)

Picked up an Evo 8. The RS was intended to be a daily driver to my Evo 8, which had almost 500whp. Accordingly I fit a tow hitch to the RS and used it to haul my bike to the racetrack

After doing paintless dent removal on the entire car, I decided the end result wasnt good enough. So I had the entire car resprayed. I also started to piece together the real build. Version 8 JDM STi swap he he he

Heres a quick walk around of the fresh paint

After almost a month at Rallispec, the car was done. Version 8 EJ207, 6-speed with 07+ gear set, r180 diff, STi axles in the front, hybrid in the rear, all the goodies in the above post were also installed. Needless to say, the car feels incredible. Great work by Dave and Gen at Rallispec. I couldnt reccomend them enough

Lowered the car on Flatout Suspension coilovers (I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE COILS) poor build quality, but they do ride nice, so far. I also added some JDM badging, foglight covers, JDM aero gaurds, Version 6 front grill, among other things. Also finished my morimoto retrofit (I do not recommend using the ballasts and igniters in these kits)






Added some RS Goldies, took the wing off to see how I'd like it. Eventually put it back on.






I put the wing back on, added a chargespeed rear bumper (matching side skirts will be installed soon). I also added a custom HKS Carbon-Ti catback. I love the way the rear of the car looks now

Very nice build! Looks like you got a GD pink I badge though.
