Ok, I've got a really good tax return comming to me. I can't decide what to do next. I have the money to either get a complete carbon fiber hood with vents and everything, or I was thinking RB5 Replica Spoiler and 2002 STI front lip. I guess it comes down to a really nice hood or a spoiler and lip.

The 2002 STi front lip fits on our cars? OR are you talking about the OEM WRX kit? I'd love to get one of those or a CF V6 lip :)

What else have you already done? Also one thing about a CF hood is if it is not parked in the shade or gaurge kept it will eventually change color. Not ruling it out but you might want to consider this.

If that's not the case, then I would get the spoiler, and 22B vents.

Oops, what I meant to say was the 2002 oem lip, not STI, sorry.

The car is garage kept.:)

These are the mods that I've done:

Power:
Cobb CAI
5 Zigen Catback
Zex 55 Shot Nitrous Kit
Kartboy Short Throw Leaver

Suspension:
18mm Rear Swaybar
KYB AGX 4/8 Adjustable
STI Front/Rear Strut Tower Bars
Rota Subzeros Gunmetal
Bridgestone Potenza S03 215/45/17

Aesthetic:
PIAA Super Whites Headlights/Fogs/Corners
JDM Rear Bumper Spats
Color Matched Side Skirts

Interior:
Broadway Mirror
Matrix Pedal Covers
RCI 3 Point Harness
Custom Gauage Pod Autometer Nitrous Pressure, EGT, and A/F Meter

I'm pretty sure there is more I just can't think of them right now. I feel that I am lacking the aesthetic stuff.
These are some of the last pictures taken of my car:


Really guys! What do you think I should do next?

For Power- i'd go with a Clutch and Flywheel! you will not be disapointed.

For looks- i'd go for the Sti front lip, Rb5 wing C/F hood scoop, C/f 22b vents, a grill if you want and tint.

For handling- get a ALK (anti-lift kit) and thats all i can think of for right now.

For interior- Get seats! and a 5 piont harness! give the 3 piont to the passanger.

Your car is pretty sweet and this is what id work on if i owned it and had a lot of cash. Also you car has a good amopunt already done to suspenion and a little under the hood. id say you right in wanting to get someting for the body. Good luck and happy spending.

You don't like carbon fiber hoods? I was going to get one anyway, its just a matter of now or later.

Is that picture of your car moss?
That would be my car ;) I like CF hoods, just I think that would be the last thing I do. I haven't seen any yet that fit the RS well.

I haven't even had the car for 2 years yet. I bought her November 2000. It's hard to believe that I've done that much in such a short period of time. Once you start you can't stop. :curse: I haven't done anything to her since November. I lost my job in December. Money has been short, it's nice to be able to do something again.:) I think that I'm going to do the CF hood and 2002 OEM front lip. I need to get the sideskirts repainted. The guy that did my car before did an ass job prepping them so they are starting to chip now. I hope that I have enough money to do all three.

Yeah that was pretty funny everyone going at a slant cause I can't park. :) And just cause I wasn't obsessive enough to bring the car shining stuff and wipe the car free of bugs doesn't mean I need to be made fun of, hehe.
