Post 52 Impreza 2.0GX - Any Mod Ideas?

Test Drove Car tonight and well enjoyed my introduction to Subaru

Looking to potentially purchase vehicle.... understanding is that it is standard GX spec with non turbo with WRX spoiler but has very low miles 31000 for 02 plate...

Initial thoughts are to update stereo system for something more modern and louder and get home comforts right at first then progress from there....

Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated?

Re: 52 Impreza 2.0GX - Any Mod Ideas?

Was looking at some mods to the lights at first.....then scoop on bonnet etc...

Quite like to get lights done first....had quick look tonight on web and have seen ads for angel eyes projector lights -see link below-- have you or anyone else had any experience with these or can suggest something that is still mot friendly (not Hid conversion)?

once outside has been finished then will work on engine and inside etc.....

Thanks

Re: 52 Impreza 2.0GX - Any Mod Ideas?

Funds currently will not stretch to a WRX.... looking to mod this car and enjoy for a year and then move up to bigger and better subaru then

Will/can these lights be fitted to this car as it advises that these require little or no modification as it uses original wiring etc....?

my initial thoughts is that this will improve on the std lights and make things a little more brighter and nicer to look at at the same time......

Also have been reading posts about quick and good mods to be done to car and think I will get new brake pads etc - thought about these Ferrodo 2500...

What are ur thoughts?

DS2500's are very popular and get good reviews so good buy there! Would save your cash on the lights imo

Yes, very safe and is easy to install and use,
would be a cheap alternative until you can get wrx/Sti.
