Default 4th Generation - 4th Subaru

For those of you following my previous members journal you'll have seen that I sold my 2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i and upgraded to a 2016 Subaru Impreza Sport Limited! I've now owned 4 Subaru's, 3 of them being Impreza's and one Legacy. I will continue to own Subaru's for as long as I can!!!



For everyone who doesn't know me: Hi I'm Trevor I previously had a 2000 Impreza 2.5RS which is how I stumbled upon RS25 and led me to become a member. After making the huge mistake of selling my RS I picked up a 2003 Legacy wagon and a year later it had several electrical issues that I did not want to deal with so I traded it in for a 2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i and I had that car for the last 4 years. I only put about 60k miles on her but that car was a first for me on a lot of modifications and I enjoyed every bit of ownership with that car, but as I get older I wanted something more refined but still fun. Here's a short showcase of the last 3 Subaru's I had, none of which remained stock!

1. 2000 Impreza 2.5RS




2. 03 Legacy L wagon




3. 07 Impreza 2.5i


Let's get on with it. I'll post my goals and try to keep this updated as I go!

2016 Subaru Impreza Sport Limited purchased 6-16-19 for $18k with 36k miles completely stock!

Current Modifications as of 8/26/19:

Exterior
LED 6500k low beams
LED white license plate lights
LED white OEM C-lights
LED white reverse light
DRL disengaged
Yakima Cross bar system
Yakima LoadWarrior basket
OEM splash guards on side skirts & rear bumper
Gloss black wrapped center bars on grille
Amber deletes on headlights
Clear rear bumper reflectors
OEM rain guards
20% tint on passenger windows
Digital snow camo front & rear emblem overlays
Premium Auto Styling yellow fog light overlays
Front bumper accents wrapped in Avery snow digital camo vinyl
Yellow inserts on taillights

Interior
LED white dome, map, & trunk lights
Subaru all-weather floor mats
Subaru all-weather trunk liner
ScanGuage2 (under radio)
Silver trim wrapped in digital snow camo

Suspension
Stock

Performance
Removed muffler for more rumbles

Audio
Stock
______________________________ _________________

Shit I wanna do or considering:
Exterior
Debadged trunk lid or reduce the amount of badges
OEM front bumper add-ons to match side skirts & rear bumper splash guards
JDM/ OEM/ F1 style lower 3rd brake light
OEM tall rear spoiler (not STi)

Performance
Maybe create a custom intake of some sort
Front strut brace
maybe lower it with lowering springs - big maybe - I've had lowered cars for a while. I'm really enjoying a stock height car.

Audio
I'd like to integrate my current subwoofer into the factory radio
Kicker 10" subwoofer
Kicker 300w amp

So if you can't tell, I want to be more modest with this car. Enjoy it as it is and for all it has to offer. Take it on trips with my wife, etc.

Used some gloss black vinyl to delete my amber reflectors



Finally got my ScanGuage2 wired up under the radio!

Waiting semi-patiently for my tint guy to return from vacation and more to come as well.

How is your headlight pattern against a wall? Still a sharp cut off? My brother has LED bulbs in his bike and I give him shit about it any chance I get cause they're dangerously bright. I refuse to ride in front of him as that shit washes out my mirrors and I catch reflections off my visor.

Yeah no issues here. I always readjust my headlights when I install brighter bulbs to keep from doing that. Sounds like your brother needs to do the same. With a brighter bulb it often changes how the light is being disbursed and people don't often realize that which is why their brighter low beams now blind everyone.

I have managed to get quite a lot done over the past couple weeks!

Tint has been applied at 20% all around



I installed a set of OEM rain guards




I wrapped the small silver accents on my dash with Avery digital snow camo vinyl. This is all I'm going to do with it on the inside. I may use it in small places outside as well but I don't want to go overboard and look tacky. Before passenger side


After passenger side


Before drivers side


After drivers side


Lastly, I couldn't find anywhere that sold clear reflectors for the rear bumper. The only ones I could find illuminated with the brake lights and I didn't want that. I had an ingenious idea to use silver reflector tape for exterior household use. I laid it on there and trimmed it to fit and voila. Clear reflectors!


Stay tuned!

Well at least I feel better knowing I'm not the only onw who has kicked themselves for selling their RS.

The stickers give me an idea though.... And I guess maybe I should start a journal for the SH Foz too...

I'm always second guessing whether I should sell mine.
