Silver, good! With either one of those colors, though, if you get the Morrette headlights, leave tham black, they blend in to the grill and it looks really agressive!

I like white...:D

It is one of the less owned colors for any Impreza...

Silver is fairly common, but you don't have to wash it as often...

Here's a white one with unpainted Morrettes, just like I was talking about:

Personally I like blue, but I guess silver is better than white.

I you buy it from those guys, make sure you have tham take that awful Farish plaque off of the trunk! Why do dealerships do that?!?!:confused:
Yeah, and if they refuse to take it off, tell 'em you'll walk if they don't...

It should come off promptly!;)

Go with white, just get the front end clear coated ASAP. The white paint seems to be softer than the normal crappy subaru paint and subaru uses black primer (at least on my MY99). Shouldn't cost you too much, probably want to get the skirts painted at the same time (use an aftermarket body shop, its cheaper than getting the painted skirts from subaru).

On the 2000 they used a grey primer under the white - but yeah, that shit chips off hella easily. :rolleyes:

It was SILVER in the end!!

Thanks for the opinions folks!

I was torn between silver and white, but in the end, since we're between model years (no more new 2002 being produced), I took what was able to be traded to my local dealer with the proper config, which was SILVER.

Have a look!

i voted white, cause i love the look of a white car with white rims.

"if you have the means of picking one up, i highly recomend it, they are so choice." *turns off ferris bueler voice*:biggest:
