My Subaru Build Progress

Had my car for nearly half a year. Heres a little back story on it.
Saw a friend had a 06 wrx silver hawkeye. Decided to hop on board with the subi. Didn't have as much cash as i just got into college and out of highschool, but didn't want to always rely on carpool and uber/lyft and all those other jazz. Got a good deal on this car for under $4000
Vehicle is currently used as a daily driver. Thinking of wanting to get a Manual Trans Forester XT 2004 later on in the year, or a imported GC8 WRX STI as in 2019 it will be legal in USA.
2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i Hawkeye
  • Obsidian Black Peral
  • Automatic Trans :/ Oh well. At least I dont get foot cramps in bay area traffic
Miles Obtained: 157k Current: 162k
At 120k, headgasket, water pump, and timing chain was replaced.
At 160k, power steering pump replaced along with all brake pads.

Rims and Tires specs.
  • Unsure if REP or authentic, but 5zigen Fn01r-C
  • Tires 225/45. rims are R17 with a 35 offset as far as i know
It may not be a wrx or a sti, but its a start for my first car first love with Mudered Hawki








Modding Begins:

Purchased and installed Rally Armor UR Mudflaps. Accidentally switched the clips for the front and rear, so had to backtrack and took extra time to put it on.



Front Lip and horns.
The car was in a fender bender, and from what i was told, the right fender was replaced, and the wheel well had no liner :/ bummer. The damage was also on the foglight covers, so i decided to go open foglight bezel.








Got a deal on used Tien lowering springs from a friend who had it on their 06 sti for a year.
Picked it up and slapped it on.





Swapped the taillights from 06-07 to 04-05

Had the car aligned at school. Never took alignment shop but learned on the shop.

The front camber bolts are a pain in the a**, so i just left the front camber as is. Tried to zero out everything the best i could :/




Sad seeing my car naked without headlights or a front bumper. But Demon eyes and black housing are coming up.





Car looks weird with exposed crash beam and liner

After 3 days of Murdered Hawki having it, She was put back together with demon eyes and blacked out housing.





And I present the most horrible camera quality shot of the Hawki







Red headlights Blue license plate lights... Whoops. Illegal yet looks nice

Summer is rolling around the corner and have couple of plans for the vehicle.
