These 2004 JDM 2.0 GT Spec.B was imported from Japan to Germany in 2016. I won the auction, the car was shipped directly to Germany and I do all necessary conversions to get it road legal in Germany:

- change position of rear foglight and reverse light (because Germany is a LHD country an the foglight has to be on the rear left side of ther car)
- change of headlights to Germany LDH ones
- replace all brake pads and end links to get German TÜV

So far the car was registerd in Germany in April 2017. It is a great fun to drive, really fast for a wagon. It's not my first tubo, I owned a Blobeye WRX and a Mazdaspeed 3 before. But this is the past... I'm back to Subaru...

I got my hands on a set of Motec Nitro 8x18 +35 in gunmetal. Seems a little bit too wide and I hope with rolling guards/fenders it will fit.

But I do not like the gunmetal at all. Let's going for gold... Color code is Dupont F9657

Well.... that looks better than I've thought. Great combination gold and black. Wheels are a little bit to wide so I've to roll and pull fenders but that should not be a problem. Your thoughts?

Looking good. What width rubber have you got? Should be able to slip in fairly easily with just a fender roll and some mild camber.
