I've had my Impreza for about 2 years now, and the fool that had it before me put altezza's on, along with some universal Tsubo exhaust that I still need to get rid of. For some reason it's taken me this long to fix the tail light issue. I'm certain the car was saved from becoming a Civic from South-Central LA.

I went with USDM lights because I don't think the JDM ones look very good with stm... there isn't enough contrast for me with the white lens and silver paint. To change things up a bit I got a 10% smoked turn signal kit from Rock Blocker because they are subtly different. To be honest, I was disappointed with the quality of the fit. I had to trim a lot just to get a straight line. It probably would have worked out better for me to have gotten a sheet and made my own templates.

Sorry for the crap pics... it's hard for me to get a close-to-life image of silver.
Here's a comparison pic, RB on top, OEM on bottom:



Before:



After:



I'm wanting to go wingless ASAP.

And a pic of the front just because... I want to get a C-West grill and bugeye lip soon.



Thanks to kaptainkevlar for the lights!

That's the Super Kustom JDM-land v.6 Type R grill.







J/k. I found some old Subaru grills at a junkyard... I think it's from a mid-80's Brat or something. I cut out the plastic pieces in the OEM grill, then cut that one to fit. I really like the old logo with the stars connected to form the constellation.

excellent job. I saw a car like that around my house in Japan that looked really sweet. The only thing he had that you dont were black, unpainted rear bumper strakes and side skirt strakes. They looked really good in contrast with everything.

I think his car is a v4. He had the goldies on there too. Shoot, I'll just get a pic for ya :)

So... what are you doing with the altezza's? There are many options... some including fire, others a sledge hammer.

Yeah I'm not sure yet. I'd love to say I could sell them, but, uh... that's just not gonna happen.

I've got about a half a dozen of those at home. I made some into X-mas ornaments, they're sick.



Kost, that is a freakin sweet bat. Do they sell those at Wally World??

Car looks much better now!

All right sorry, but I was able to snap some better color shots so you can see what the 10% smoked film looks like. I'll stop posting pics now... and thanks for the compliments!
