Default So what are your total plans for your car?

I have a long way to go. Seems like it'll take forever but I'm anticipating that most of these will be on by next summer:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aesthetics:
Altezza Lights (Just kidding!!!)

STI rear window with wiper assembly (gonna have to find one!)
STI carbon fiber wing
Stoptech or Brembo brake kit
Tein flex coilovers with w/ EDFC (slammed of course)
STI strut tower bars frnt/rear
cusco swaybars frnt/rear
18x8 SSR Anthracite Competitions
Potenza S-03's
STI UK headlights
STI lip spoiler
STI grille
Griffin sideskirts
Griffin rear valence
50% tint all around
Blue tinted Mirrors (not sure which yet)
Zendar Antenna
Carbon fiber hood scoop (maybe)

Interior:
Defi Gauge Pod (may get an a-pillar setup and leave the dash open for an 'iced' out clarion monitor setup for my stereo )
Recardo SRD Seats
Sound dampening entire interior
a/d/s or DA Hex components in front
audiomobile MASS 2010 sub mounted in trunk side enclosure
8" midbass' in kickpanels
Clarion HU
Precision Power Amps
STI Ver. 6 WRC shift knob
STI trim ring

Power (very tentative list):
STI TMIC w/ IC y-pipe
Vishnu Stage 1
*or*
GFB pulleys
godspeed up-pipe
godspeed downpipe
scoobysport cat-back exhaust (or prodrive axleback)
engine management
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not a huge power freak, so that's why I neglected to mention an upgraded turbo or FMIC. I'll wait and see what happens after Stage 1. I'm sure it'll be fast enough for me, I don't foresee myself being a huge drag fan either, though I may get addicted soon enough. If I eventually go with an FMIC, it'll be the black APS one from Cobb, or the big ass Blitz. hehe

So what are your guys' plans for this summer or next year? I don't expect to get even a quarter of my parts til close to next year. Most of the parts I'll get during winter, during dividend and an expected pay increase at work. All after August. Right now, coilovers and SSR's are my biggest priority, the sti body parts being the next, especially the headlights.

I can't sink every penny into my car because I have other hobbies as well, such as a deep rooted photography fetish and FISHING. Gotta pick up a wideangle lense, macro lense, flash slave and magic head to round out my Nikon stuff.

Not to mention I want to save up for a beat up 4x4 and used river boat, and make my WRX seasonal.

Anyway, sorry to ramble. Who else wants to share?
