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!

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.

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.

Do some function mods.

Lower it. Wheels/tires. bigger sway bar
In time my friend. I just started a new career that will be paying quite well but first I would like to save some money and do things the right way. So to start I'm getting my comfort mods out of the way and to keep me at bay until I can afford the rest.

Tiny update: A buddy of mine gave me his old clear shift knob from his 07 wrx and I must say it is a lot of fun to drive with!

The fog lights are a restoration project. I got them for free and they were pretty beat up. I'll post pictures of the process and what not soon.

No one sells JDM pink star badges for 06-07s so instead of buying something that doesn't fit right so I got some overlays. Pink background with silver stars. My girlfriend said she's buying me 2 gifts for my birthday & they're both for the car. That's why I haven't done anything with it. Gotta wait until October 10th. Idk if I can last
