Sometimes change is cool just for the sake of changing stuff. I think some of the bits and pieces here look really cool, although since I'm not doing time attacks or track days, most of this stuff is wasted on me.

Sux that there's no engine work, but depending on the price, it could be a deal for those of us who want only OE/OE tuned parts.

because it's the off the shelf wheel. Japanese factory tuned cars are typically conservative in this.

Those recaros make my pants tight.

I think that the absolute best part of this car is that I will hopefully be able to get parts for it to put on mine. Some little details like the black instead of silver on the steering wheel, those fender garnishes, etc.

I really do like those fender garnishes.

Recaro seats, fender trim and STi push start are things I want. But the TRD vents are high on my list. The seats are probably too much and I already like my seats.
