Very nice indeed. If I may, I would suggest a STI wing. With the way your car looks now, I think it would set it off very well.

Several transformations and it looks like you're having fun with your rex there :)!!

Definately agree with losing the red overlays - smoked better, IMHO no overlays best...

Your car is starting to look so similar to mine - kinda wierd looking through the progression! - but good on you, and gl with what you're doing!

Thanks everyone for the positive remarks!! :)

May i ask what is a clear bra?
Its a thin clear plastic film applied to the leading edge of your car to protect against rock chips. I have the Xpel kit that covers my entire bumper, hood, scoop, fender, and side mirrors.

Because they put a lot of road salt and sand down in the winter, it was the first thing to go on my car. A little pricey but totally worth it. My paint still looks new. :D

I think your car looks great and I wish I had thought of the clear bra. I'm surprised how many little rock chips I have in the front of my WRX. The paint is definately inadequate and you have saved yourself a lot of grief because I can tell that you care about how good it looks. I used a lamin-x film on my tails, their lightest smoke, and it looks pretty good with my black car. I think it would look great with your dark graphite.

that's the look i was going for. Looks awesome!

the picture on the eBay auction where i bought the film looked just like yours... maybe little bit lighter. but what i received was totally different from what was described. :(
