Josh/Kaeo_15’s bugeye | Reinventing Originality

WHAT: It’s getting harder and harder to stand out from the pack with bugeyes these days.  This guy does a really great job of it.  This bugeye just doesn’t look like any other bugeye you’ll ever see on the road.

This car has things that just don’t see elsewhere like the frontend consisting of one-offed retrofitted HID projectors in OEM headlights, offset nicely by painted chargespeed brake ducts more common as of late (still rare), but you don’t see them painted often, and ARC magic front lip splitters which were never even made for Subarus (these were meant for a JDM Evo 6 GSR).  It rolls on Black chrome finish Work XD9 wheels.  Oh yeah, and the Prodrive lip?  It’s real.

side note:  I hooked him up w these ^^

I’m half tempted to censor out the fitment stickers but Josh = good people, and “the Supreme Court has roundly rejected prior restraint.” haha : D
