Where did you get the carbon fiber covers for the black trim around the windows? That is something I certainly wish to do with my 2018! Thanks

I dig it a lot! Where or how did you get dual center exhausts??
I have to know where you got the bumper and exhaust! I've been planning on cutting up my bumper and getting a custom exhaust.
The exhaust is made by STI and sold in the Japanese domestic market. It comes with the garnish and templates for cutting the bumper.

You can check it out here: https://www.sti.jp/parts/impreza5door_gt/muffler/STPKG40GH000/

I ordered it from RHDJapan here: https://www.rhdjapan.com/sti-stainless-steel-sports-muffler-garnish-set-gt2-gt3-gt6-gt7.html

Word to the wise, don't use RHDJapan's credit card payment processor. Just use PayPal for checkout. I had two fraudulent charges pop up after I used their payment processor. Other than that, shopping with RHDJapan has been great and I have two more items on order with them right now.

Thank you for the link, and does it sound any different from stock?
It's got a nice rumble on cold start, fairly quiet when warm. You can hear it while driving, but for the most part it's pretty faint. On a scale from 1 being stock and 10 being the Nameless muffler delete, it's probably a 3 or a 4. I'll post a cold start video later today and let it run until it idles down and I'll give it a few revs.

Car looks great.
Thanks!

Not sure if your talking about the 50th anniversary edition or the exhaust. No number on either though. However, I do know there are 500 of the 50th anniversary 4 door Imprezas and 550 of the 50th anniversary 5 door Imprezas.

Its a little expensive after converting it to USD, but what money does a college student have right? Haha. This is currently one of the best looking imprezas I have seen though.

Thanks! It was definitely a bit pricey, I won't argue that. It looks so good though, and it fits absolutely perfect! It even comes with brackets that connect the rear bumper to the heat shield above the muffler to reinforce the area you have to cut out.

Where did you buy the hood stay shocks? Bolt on or modification?
I got them from Redline Tuning. They have two different kits. The QuickLIFT Plus kit has black gas springs for a more oem look with a 4 year warranty, whereas the QuickLIFT Elite has stainless gas springs and a five year warranty. The install does require drilling and riveting, but the instructions are simple and very easy to follow. The instructions say to use a 3/16 drill bit, but I found that to be too small. I used a 13/64 drill bit instead and it worked perfect. I also recommend using a center punch before drilling.
