dwmilton VERY nice looking Foz you have there!

I'll *definitely* be installing the Sports Grill. The underspoiler, and lowering, I doubt. I want to maintain ground clearance and approach angle for driving in the desert. I will probably install a black Aries push bar, very possibly with some PIAA/etc. lights mounted to it. I'd like to take a little sunlight with me, when I go out in the dark, LOL.

Raszaron Here's a pic of my 04 PSM Forester with the Prodrives in Glitter Gold.


As for the new style Forester, I think gold rims would really look good on the White or the Dark Grey if they had the sport grille and sport front bumper, and obviously lowered.

I like the Konig Daylites, like Superacerc recently put on his DGM Limited. He's tinted the taillights, and plasti-dipped the door handles, though.

dwmilton I've always had a nagging question in my head re: gold wheels on the SH. Looking at the pics posted here of the older Fozzies, it finally hit me.

The Touring model has silver/gray roof rails, and chrome door handles. I'm not gonna swap that stuff out or plasti-dip it. I'm not a chrome whore, but I do like a little here & there (read: tasteful). This is just *MY* preference.

I guess I'm wondering how the "goldies" would look on the various color Touring models, with the chrome handles & silver rails.

My thought now is that SWP would "hide" the silver/chome the best, while looking good w/ gold wheels. Not sure on the darker paint colors though, and it seems most agree that gold wheels don't look as good on silver or Sage green.

Thoughts?

max6spd The only exception would be gold wheels on a gold colored car

Not to mention once the car is rolling, they might as well be steelies!
