Show off

Yes a credit to the many hours that Andy the last owner put into this for sure... it has to be said that the mods to this are a wish list to most of us and have been skillfully carried out all by Andy himself. His attention to detail is quite exeptional it has to be said.... we went over and under this car with a fine tooth comb trying to be critical because we simply could not see anything wrong with it and when we viewed it and we failed big time When you guys see it you will also understand that it's a cracker

Kev get polishing as there is nothing else to do

Right now that you have all seen the car can I have your thoughts on two things.

1. Roof vent, Yes or no.

2. Morretts, Yes or no.

Shall not been rushing off to do either just yet but just thinking aloud in the aid of research

Leave it alone. If your desperate to change something, I'd only change the side light for crystal side light. But that would be the one and only thing.

1. take it or leave it

2 No - (clear indicator lenses are a must though imho)

Only other thing i would do is to remove the wrx sticker on the boot. Other than that there is nothing else to do (which take it from me is a frustrating place to be)

Roof vent - not bother either way, do like them, but a bit pointless and expensive

Morretts - NO i prefer the crystal headlamps, just get crystal side lights to match:
SUBARU IMPREZA 93-99 CRYSTAL CLEAR FRONT SIDE LIGHTS on eBay, also Indicators Repeaters, Lights Lighting Accessories, Car Tuning Styling, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 04-Apr-08 23:16:32 BST)

and personally i'd keep the stickers, especially the ones on the rear 1/4's.

I thought I had clear indicator lenses or do you mean
crystal side lights which are on the to do list

The stickers have grown on me but I know what you mean first time I seen the car I said to myself the stickers are comming off!!

No one rates the Morretts why?
I think they look rather nice on Si's Type R
