Go look at some blue sti's with gloss black rims. Sexy
Gold is OEM. It looks just fine. Worry about strengthening that EJ25 so you can reliably boost 25psi with a 3582R.

Figured I would throw up an update.
Things done so far,
17x8 OZ Alleggerita wheels w/ dunlop direzza z1 star spec's
whiteline sway bars and adjustable endlink's
whiteline roll center kit
Tinted tail lights
Painted one remaining sti emblem on trunk lid black
Painted grill black
Painted radio surround with plasti dip spray (rubbery oem look)
Kenwood iphone compatable deck (cheap and works great for now)
Cobb Access Port running stage 1 map
BC Racing Coil-overs ordered (backordered) lowering car 1.5-2"

Next on the list will be a turbo back exhaust, still trying to decide on a setup and build the car fund up enough without blowing it on other things which I have been doing a good job of.

few new parts,
coilovers

heat shield for turbo/intercooler. Local guy who is in the Subaru club does sheet metal and makes these, had it powder coated red to match the intake manifold and a sti logo engraved. And less than half the price of a subaru spt one..

And another crappy Iphone pic!! lowered it quite a bit, a little over 2" i think, it was early and forgot to write down the factory height when i measured before, its a little impractical and the control arm has a bad angle so its going up a half inch all around.

Also have a dead pedal to match the other pedals and hood dampeners bought through a group buy that I should have in a few days.
Rally armour mud flaps and exhaust next

Thanks,
I forgot I also put a Perrin wing Stiffi in the big ugly wing to make it even more ridiculous, lol At higher speeds the middle of it flops around like crazy in the wind and these put a stop to it.

Thanks, I am getting the black rally armor flaps with blue letters. My hood shocks and dead pedal came in and got them installed, put in a k&n air filter and lifted it back up a half inch because it was a little too low and was scraping off of everything, and control arms were negative. Better pic of the new heat shield as well. Also made a grounding wire set that links the neg terminal, both sides of intake manifold, alternator, and both shock mounts. They are supposed to make them idle and run smoother in general, and does make the throttle especially when off and coming off the throttle much smoother.
