Put one on each side of the wing, I'll probably put a bigger one a-la mirror like my old one once it's warmer out and I can get a clean surface

Also decided to go for the homage RA-R stripe on the grill, thing it looks pretty decent for the red scheme I am going for.

Shopping around for a set of red lug nuts for my summer wheels, seems pretty pricey for the popular purchased sets. Also thinking about what color rally armor flaps to go for (totally red or black w/ red logo like my '08), hopefully I can make my mind up quick enough :D


On a side note, went and met some local Subie owners on Friday for lunch, Legacy has seen better days :D (cracked windshield, big gash on the passenger side). Unfortunately...the white WRX owner had an encounter with a deer last night, totally f-ed up the front end but still drivable.

Explain the pigs...
Gir loves the little piggies!

(Also: a design that appeared on Solberg's rally car. IIRC, it's part of the logo of a Japanese magazine.)

It's the mascot of a Japanese manga magazine called "Young Magazine" (kinda risqu?, heres a decent link to show the pig), but features many popular anime, like Akira was shown in it before it became a movie, and other anime shows/manga like Initial D and Wangan Midnight (both very car oriented titles).

They sponsored the SWRT, showed up on Petter Solberg's Subaru for a good while...

Subaru enthusiasts caught wind of this photo specifically...

It has been on other Subaru rally cars (but I can't be bothered at 12:30a to sift for them :p). And how they sell like hotcakes.

I think they're awesome, they turn make people in cars take a double glance, and I am sure my red pig on the white car will show up even more :D

I love the colour, it's white... but it's not.:|

I can't wait to give it a proper wash and wax once the weather gets warmer, I want to see how the Satin White Pearl really shines :D
i'm really digging the STI sedan. what a fantastic car you got.

Thanks mate, to the untrained eye it seems like not-so-much of a departure from the hatch, but it feels and drives so much different.
Don't like the wing but love the car :D And you definitely need gold rims on this one :)

Hehe, that is what kinda spurred me on to get a sedan STI again. I kinda regretted over time getting rid of my '06 because it was such a classic and aggressive design.

I might be looking into rims at some point later down the road. Nothing hella flush like some....but a design that fits the car well. But I haven't had a chance to have the rims that came with the car on them yet. I'm sure the boldness of the car will be even more defined.
Nice to see a fellow Iowan.

Where at? Would love to meet a fellow FG'er from the area!

Saw the same car in blue recently, looks really good. I used to like the look of the old model below, but I'm starting to think your car does look better now as a it's a sedan.

Also, your interior looks like a much nicer place to be than my evo :D

Thanks, it definitely feels like a step forward in looks by taking a step back per say and going back to the sedan STI :D

What a beautiful car Silverstar! My 2.5i dreams every night that it could be as sweet as your STI :)

Hey man, just like Deltableh you can get some tasteful mods, treat it right and have an awesome Subaru.

So since spring is just around the corner....

Decided to take a gamble on the weather and put my stock wheels on!

Looks much more in good/aggressive form now....surprisingly these versions of the Dunlop's are a lot quieter than the ones on my '08. Time to go give it a wash now that it's getting into the 40s-50s outside! :lol:

Very good car man congrats!

And don't worry about your old friend, cars are meant to be out on the open space not closed in a showroom :p
