3rd Times the Charm
1 Attachment(s)
For anyone who doesn't know me: Hi I'm Trevor and this is my 3rd Subaru, 2nd Impreza. I previously had a 2000 Impreza 2.5RS which is how I stumbled upon RS25 and led me to become a member. Prior to selling my RS I picked up a 2003 Legacy wagon and a year later here we are with this 2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i. It only has 66k miles and its bone stock.....for now. Here's a short showcase of the last 2 Subaru's I had, none of which remained stock!

Oooooo, pretty! Bye bye Legacy?

Edit: Read your other journal. At least you traded up!

So far I've swapped out all regular bulbs for LEDs (Dome, license plate, & trunk light). Also tested my subwoofer & amp. I installed my Grimmspeed radiator plate as well.

Next up I need to tint the windows down to 20% and get some factory fog lights. It'll stay that way for a bit. I need to get used to driving a stick.

Better pictures I took while exploring a new road and I happened to have my Canon with me

man'd up indeed! :lol:

Wired up my Scangauge II under the radio. Fits really snug. The cubby is really deep. I am able to put my phone in the cubby in front of the Scangauge!

I'm thinking UR mudflaps with the red logo, 20% tint, JDM red hazard switch, and maybe a new radio next. ;) stay tuned!

Just ordered a pair of these for 15% off! I've been researching the 04-05 tail light conversion and it's super easy but any used for sale are at least $250 and new they're even more. So these overlays willl hold me over!

Let's see if I can stay on track this time. Projected upcoming modifications are: debadge the trunk letters, mudflaps with the red logo, 20% tint, JDM red hazard switch, and maybe a new radio.

Reserved for tail light overlay install.

Edit: Overlay installed!


Also, installed LED reverse bulbs (before the overlay)

Reserved for tint.
