Only the STi has HIDs, the WRX uses halogens. Honestly, just get a WRX and a COBB Accessport. With a full exhaust and stage 2 tune, a WRX is faster than a stock STi.

Okay, I finally have a picture up. I apologize for only one good picture but sometimes you take a ton and only one turns out alright.

BEFORE: Major problems going on here. The FMIC piping was not fitted properly and the oil cap was digging into the side of the piping - causing it to not only dent, but at some point puncture. Much of this was due to a Blitz oil cap that had a very acute metal ridge.

AFTER: Function + creativity.
  • High temp resistant prime
  • black paint with metal specks
  • COBB oil cap
  • Refinished oil catch can
  • Repainted alternator block-off
  • Repainted fuse-box cover
  • Repainted GT Spec radiator block-off
  • Flat black FMIC (pictures later)

Note: Some people ask me why the upper strut bar is partially hot pink, this is because it's an STi strut bar.
