  • Subaru WRX UK -- Full project

    Hi all,

    I have been lurking on MP3car.com for some time and the knowledge and help from this site has been imense.

    So thanks from across the Pond.

    I finshed the car project off nearly 3 months ago.

    The project itself took nearly 5 months of none stop work over the winter, and I did nearly all the work myself.

    It was an all over project as I show my cars as a hobby and had previosuly sold a show car to move onto this one.

    Ok, so here's some pictures of the install:

    The Monitor which is a Linitx 7" jobbie.

        thats not a body kit. its a lip kit. why does subs not have body kits? the lip kits are as much as body kits for the subs, thats a rip off.

        thats the sti lips? right?

            now that i look at it i think the only thing he did was a front lip? Hey muddy whats with the lip/lips? i think its just the sti lip in front.

            anyways subs are just the sh%t. the previous gen took some time to appreiciate looks wise but performance was outstanding. now with this gen looks and performance is together to make this wrx a beast.

            isnt your steering wheel on the wrong side?

                yeah that is one of the cleanest rides i have seen. though the surround doesnt look all that clean.

                    I'm opposite opinion, hate the new ones, loved the old ones.

                    Nice interior bro! Why u need two screens in your boot though?
                    May as well send one to me!

                        ha i was just like you. when the previous gen wrx came out at first i was like eww but liked the specs. then the styling grew on me.
                        then this gen came out and i was like eww. but yet again i liked the specs. then like before the styling grew on me.

                        at first these cars are ugly. but given time the design just grows on you. like it did me.

                          Love those cars! Very sweet install. One thing though, I would imagine it looks better with white in the dash, but wouldn't it be less reflective if the LCD frame was black? You could have like a white strip there instead, it wouldn't reflect and would still contrast nicely with the interior.

                            i would say blacken up the resessed part of the console where the lcd sits. it would give contrast to the middle and lower reflections like yuriy said

                              Thanks for all your kind comments, much appreciated from back here in the UK.

                              Seems to be more interest in the car than the install

                              There is a full bodykit fitted (Well not so much a bodykit but a collection of bodykit parts):

                              A greddy front lip spoiler with STi fog light covers.

                              Oricari side skirts

                              Oricari rear skirts

                              WRC S7 Rear spoiler.


                              I'm not touching the install, it's staying as it is.

                              I have a small black piece of rubber that sit's in the recess below the screen when it's in use. This seems to stop a lot of the glare.


                              The only future additions will probably be sunvisor screens and a video booster (For all the screens).
