I'd go the gunmetal actually. I had the gold, and I really did like it - but I also really like the gunmetal more than the gold!

Of the three colours you posted, bronze. But those gramlights are super nice, so those would be my first choice.

Messaged the guy about them, he has someone lined up to come take a look tomorrow.
If it falls through I’m gonna go take a look tomorrow night.

THESE

THESE THESE THESE

The red accent stickers will fit your motif. Look fly as uckfay.

Agreed.  Looks great in the living room but would better on your car.  That's a great price as well for those wheels.

So after looking at the Gramlights, I ended up not going with them. I wasn't really feeling the semi-gloss finish in black, they seemed to almost blend into the tire.

So instead to day I orderd a set of Avid1 Av 20's in the Matte Bronze.
18x9.5 +38  should be here in about a week   8)


Couple of Pics of what they looks like

Man, the AV20's look so good on the VA body!! They were the wheels I really wanted when I first had my WRX, they look awesome. Can't wait to see them on the black!

Yeah I kept coming back to the AV20's, I've always liked the look of Bronze or Gold on Black Subaru's

Also small part cam in today. New LED lights for the license plate as well as Diode Dynamics Smart Tap Relay.

Well looked what showed up on friday  :D
Tires will be going on Monday/Tuesday. I think I will removed the white lettering from
last year though as I think it will be too much now with the bronze rims.

Got the tires all mounted up today, its going to be hard to resist the urge to put them on the car.
Removed the white lettering as it was just too much with the bronze rims.

Also Picked up the Invidia Q300 exhaust from 10secdream last week along with a few other small goodies.
Installed the exhaust same day. Super happy with the sound, just loud enough for me without being obnoxiously loud.
The tips look much better then stock as well as it really fills in the exhaust holes in the bumper.

They look like 57xtreme's which I'm very fond of.  I think they look great on the newer chassis and I'm a mega fan of the black/bronze combo.

Nice truck

Mega fan of the concave design on these. +1 for the wheels and +1 for the invidia, one of the most tasteful sounding exhausts ever.

Yup have every intentions of making it this year, planned on coming last year till a last minute work issue prevented it.

Nice truck

Always wanted the black/bronze combo.
Having access to the work truck does come in handy.

Could't be happier with the exhaust, been looking for a used one since I took the nameless muffler deletes off.

With the long weekend took a bit of time to get the lowering springs on.
Took me about 4 hours to get the old ones out and the new ones in... as well as about another 1.5 to take the fronts back out after I realized put a spacer in the wrong spot  :sarcasm:
 
In total it dropped the car about and 1.25 inches front and back. The ride is definitely a bit stiffer but overall still pretty comfortable. Forgot to take a before photo so and photo will have to do.

Before:

After:

Really wanted to install the summer rims as well but its just too early. so I tested fitted one just to see the color combo.

Decided To change up the badges as well to match the new rims better.

I dig the badges with the wheels, very subtle and classy.
