IMG_9718Over the years the Subaru Impreza WRX has become an icon amongst the automotive enthusiast community. Being such a potent package from the factory, many have chosen this platform as the starting base to unleash their inner enthusiast; with those that have slightly deeper pockets going for the factory upgraded STI model. We have seen the WRX platform excel in show, drag and time attack guise over the past 20 or so years. However if you ask me, they are by far the best in tough street form. Cue William and Julians STI’s.

I first spotted William’s ITSTI driving down my street surprisingly. As an automotive enthusiast, I’m always on the lookout for modified cars in anyway shape or form, so finding another like minded automotive enthusiast close to home is always a welcome surprise (I’m sure most of you know the feeling). After seeing this car more and more over the following days, I was glad to have some new eye candy to gaze on daily. Now the saying goes, that good things come in pairs, so when we found out that Julian and his NSFW STI were good mates with William we found it only natural to feature them together.

IMG_9423William has improved the front end aesthetics of ITSTI with the APR carbon front lip & air ducts, which are then complemented by the ‘Hella’ horns (which look like they were made for the Subaru).

IMG_9456Julian has gone a slightly different route with NSFW with the updated front bumper, subtle polyurethane lip and vented bonnet enhancing the factory front end.

IMG_9470One of the most noticeable features of Williams WRX is that awesome Varis carbon fibre rear wing, it dominates the rear end! Also note his homage (or should I say lack of) to his factory warranty; many enthusiasts wait until their warranty period is over before they begin to tinker with their pride and joy however, William is not like most enthusiasts and began modifying his sooby as soon as he drove it out of the dealership.

IMG_9473Julian has chosen a Voltex wing, piggy backed by the OEM wing as the centrepiece for the rear of NSFW.

IMG_9478The side profile shot of Williams STI show the wing in all of its Glory; it sure stands out! William and Julian have also made it clear which wheel design they prefer, both going for the classic TE37 design albeit, in different finishes. William’s STI rocking 18×9.5 +25 Te37SL’s…

IMG_9481And Julian rocking the white powder coated TE37SL in 18×9.5 +35. Julian also has a track set of wheels, which are Enkei NT03, also in white to keep to his chosen colour theme.

IMG_9487William’s STI has a slight hint of pearl in it thanks to the full body vinyl warp; those who have seen this car around would have noticed that his car was previously wrapped in a matte orange also. I wonder what colour William has planned next.

IMG_9697These 2 are almost a Yin and Yang affair; both different in many ways but complementing each other. It was a nice little cruise down to Wollongong for this shoot; an easy afternoon hanging around, talking cars and taking some snaps. We are looking forward to seeing what William and Julian have in store in for their STI’s in future but for now, in our opinion, they have created 2 quality, and not over the top daily drives with just the right amount of tinkering in all of the right places… Enthusiasts, take note!
