Random Spotlight: WRX in Perfection

January 17, 2011


There are only a handful of WRX's that are cleanly modified and this one, owned by Anthony Heng, is probably one of my favorites as of today.


I classify Anthony's WRX as an exotic car because not is it only modified with quality parts, but has a purpose with its performance.


You'll understand what I mean by 'has a purpose' when you read the modification list.
Anthony's WRX pulls about 300HP, a number that's not commonly seen on WRX's.
Every single part on this car was chosen in depth, which is really how cars should be modified.


When I first read the mod list and compared it with the photos of Anthony's WRX, something didn't match and it was the wheels. Don't be disappointed because the Rotas are only temporary to get better wheels. It would be awkward to see 90% of the car equipped with high end parts and the wheels not matching.
