These will be my new oem 19 inch rims next year.

I have them powder coated high gloss black.
Now let's see what the best tire size is.

Noice!
you must have some damn nice smooth roads over there to even consider 19's on a Levorg :p

The roads themselves are fine here.
We just have a lot of speed bumps.

I must say that the first generation of the Levorg is a lot stiffer.
My MY19 with the modified rear wheel suspension is already a lot nicer to drive.

Sometimes you have to give up some comfort for an upgrade :)

Just cleaned the engine compartment.
The green wax was in several places.

Now everything is nice and clean :)








I also placed LED lights in the license plate lighting.

This looks a lot better ;)

I painted my calipers in STI pink.
Very cool combo if I do say so myself.

Also made the heart of the discs nice black again and the brake pads chamfered because they started to squeak.

Everything was coated with 2K clear coat, so let's see how long it stays beautiful.













Changed the red reflectors in the diffuser for a set of white ones. (White is not allowed I know )
I think it's a nice combo.

Ordered some nice stuff again from Japanparts and aliexpress.

A set of STI mirror caps in a nice color cherry red.
My calipers are already in this color and after some research I came across original subaru mirror caps at Japanparts
in cherry red.
It's a daring combo but I think it looks cool.
In combination with the front grill stripe and the brake calipers I think it is very successful.

-STI mirror covers
-S207 style front grille stripe
-Turn signal mirror indicators





I've been wondering for some time what that empty black box in the mirror housing was for.
Until I came across turn signal mirror indicators at SubiSpeed.
These ensure that the flashing light signal can also be seen by the driver and if there are other road users next to you
then you can see your turn signal better from behind.

After some searching I ordered the caps from Ali because they were quite expensive at SubiSpeed.
Luckily the fit was perfect and I think it's a nice simple and cheap upgrade.
Strange that Subaru doesn't install this themselves.







The installation is super simple.
First remove the flashing light with two screws.
Carefully break off the black cap.
Place the transparent cap back on the two black catches that remain behind.
I did put some sealant behind it to prevent vibrations.
After that it's a matter of putting everything back together.

















Then the grill stripe.

First of all, cut out the sticker as much as possible.
Then properly determined the position and stuck the sticker with painter's tape.
I applied wet with water and drift.
Part by part pulled off the back of the sticker and after pasting with the hairdryer everything is dry well
made for good adhesion of the sticker.

I think the result is really cool!

Isn't the light confusing you with the vehicle/pedestriant detection led? I'm asking because I've just received mine but they don't seem to be cut properly. Could you tell me... do you feel this spots are enough to catch the mirror cover?

The vehicle and pedestrian detection is done via the stereo eyesight cameras, and when they see something it lights up in the glass mirror not the black edge which will change to clear when you put these in. You can always remove them if you don't like them?

Of course it's not in the plastic element, but in my case I don't have eyesight but I have rear vehicle and pedestrian detection :p. I'm just asking because the led in glass is really close to the spot of transparent plastic and it has almost the same color as indicators. Also if I remove the plastic and change my mind then I'll have a hole, as black plastic is broken through the process of removing this, and the transparent one is a lottle bit scrapped.

I've precised the question. I'm suprised you understood the question this way:p
