Hey (first post)

So, I have a 2002 WRX, nothing special has really been done to it. I want to modify the appearance of the car to make it more eye-catching, without turning it into something you would think a 13 year old designed.

Heres basically what it looks like now (not my car, close enough)

Now I want to find a healthy balance between that and this

So what are my options? What do you think works best with this car? I am on a budget, but if I like an idea enough, I can save for a few months.

Thanks for the help guys!

The car is looking nice standard IMO! I'd probably go for a debadged grill, change the front bumper for something a buit more striking, add some skirts and a rear bumper and get an EVO style spoiler for the rear.

Carbon fibre would look good, so Carbon air intake on bonnet, or carbon fibre bonnet, carbon mirrors and carbon rear wing would also look good. The Wheels would look better if you went a rim size up, but this is at the cost of handling and performance.

Hmm, the best list I can think of which actaully be quite affordable.

1- STi front splitter for the bumper
2- Debadged carbon fibre grill
3- STi large spoiler
4- Set of 17" versions of the wheels you have now (STi wheels)
5- Tien Coilover suspension kit
6 Set of Morette headlights. They break up the strange circle lights that Subaru decided looked good :confused:

But along those lines wont cost the earth and should make it look soemthing like so... (ignore the stickers but thsi is the effect).
