Not much has been done in a while but I did add a fancy little exhaust tip for $11 that adds a much better look for next to nothing.

good start thus far! keep it up! the red/clear tail light combo is the best look. Saw you said you wanted a front spoiler, not much you can do with that bumper besides the DIY home depot lip. Cheap and doesn't look half bad!

Thanks Brownies, I think I will wait to lower it before deciding what to do with the front lip, may just leave it as is.

Sorry been away a while, but it really is shocking what tints, lights and rims does, car looks completely different. Its funny I get more compliments and stares in this the when I had my 2010 Subaru WRX. Go figure.

Before




After (For perspective)

Been so long but I am about a month away from dropping this beast and riding proper. Got a full J2 sports coil-over kit on order and trying to source lateral links for the rear that aren't just good for WRX models or 2.0L motors, no luck thus far, any one help me source these?

New muffler coming too, so in about a month she will be riding dirty lol.

Just got my new grill and emblem installed, front end coming together.





Front lip will really complete my front end cant wait. It is a peel and stick cheap ass rubber lip for $30 so here's hoping it does the trick

Finally got my front lip installed and summer setup is back in effect. This time went -.25 camber on rear wheels to avoid rolling fenders.

Also got a fresh paint detailing to remove swirls and haze in paint.
