Nice and tastily update car... Finally more people with Gen V's to get a real understanding of what can be done to them.

Do you mind me asking where you go the rear roof spoiler from and what they are worth?

Also which LED's did you upgrade with and where? I have read through the thread on LED's but haven't worked out which ones to go with and which ones are exactly required. Needs a bit more research to know the path forward first.

Thanks

Mark

K2 spoiler is from japanparts. Talk to leo (hks180) about your led options.

Cheers mate. I was wondering how the grille would look with the oval Subaru badge. I'm not a fan of totally badge less, I may have to do some photoshopping.

I have PM'd Leo and he is looking at a list of what I need and prices was there many you had to do?

Can you let me know the part number? When I am looking I am not seeing much that looks like it is as big as the one you have installed or one that is much bigger than standard which I have now.

How much was it worth for the wing painted? Was it easy to install?

Is the Nav Hack the same as Garbo's cable hack. Did you use his cable? MY10 Nav Hack Cables

Thanks

You can replace as many or as few as you want. I did all internal globes and all external except high beams

Can you let me know the part number? When I am looking I am not seeing much that looks like it is as big as the one you have installed or one that is much bigger than standard which I have now.


Japanparts part number is 186-013-005

How much was it worth for the wing painted? Was it easy to install?


Talk to Phat GT about prices, he can organize painting for you also. Install is pretty easy, just double sided tape.

Is the Nav Hack the same as Garbo's cable hack. Did you use his cable? MY10 Nav Hack Cables


Yes, Garbo provided the nav hack.

Looking good Pips. :good: The rear window spoiler, wheels and grille are all excellent choices.
+1 on what Crusin said and perhaps investigate eyelid options also to mask off the upper 1/3 of the lights if that's possible.
I got this plan. It's called 'Save Ass'. And the way it works is this - I slip outta one of these windows and I run like a bastard!

Looking good!
I would get rid of the Carazon badge and the Liberty badge.
Nice to see some single pipes instead of twin tips.

I have a strange feel that the Gen V wagon might be making its way onto my shopping list after see this.

How are you finding the H tech’s?

Nice work Ben.
