    Agreed, 7 spoke.

    Im a sucker for 10+ spoke rims... Especially they look like OEM+ since they are similar to the BBS' that the STI's run.

    I prefer the twelve spoke wheels, especially on Subarus.

    +2 for 12 spoke. I think they look way better on that car.

    I prefer the 12, but only marginally more. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

    I prefer the 7 spoke myself, but maybe it is also the bronze color vs silver on a blue subaru.

    As mentioned, both suit the car and look great so it is a win-win. That being said, i prefer the 12 spoke. More difficult to clean, but look lighter and less "clunky".

    Vote for 12 spoke. The other ones remind me of early-2000’s go-to wheel for the ricer Civic - Motegi MR7.

    Small update, stock airbag looked like something out of the 80’s, and I wanted a central tach. I found a jdm forester cluster for $140 shipped, then paid $150 to have the odometer set to match the old cluster. I also found a guy selling a wrx steering wheel, so I grabbed that for the bag.

    Old and busted:

    I finally started to de-sti my car. Previous owners plastered the car in sti and xti badges. The car is not an STi, so no need for false advertising. First to go was the xti badge on the grill, I had to cut out some excess plastic that was used to hold badges in. I still have a badge to remove from the rear (I need a forester badge), and when I swap the wheels there will be no more external signs. The only two that *should* remain are on the intercooler and the jdm cluster (because I wanted a central tach)

    While I was in there, I also opted to swap the fog lights that a previous owner drilled into the rad support. In fairness it looks close to factory, but the metal is quite thin and it has more movement than Iíd like. Rather than remove the old ones and be stuck with two holes that are very visible, I grabbed some Hellas from amazon and wired them in. I will likely never use them as I have the adjustable headlights, but Iím happy with how it turned out considering the alternative.
