Ok, I'll throw my car in here. It's an 05 STi that I bought in August of 04. When I first got the car, I told myself I wasn't going to mod it but clearly that has gone out the window. I immediately began doing small things, mostly suspension and basic Stg. 2 mods. I was happy with it as a street car and it was definitely fast. Except about 5 years ago, I began doing track days and that's when things started moving way beyond what I originally intended.

Over time, the car became more of a dedicated track car that can still be driven on the street, rather than the other way around. A lot of my mods are there because they have some use on the track. Eventually the day will come when it needs to be taken off the street, or at least severely limited, but until then I'm enjoying it on the road and the track.

My time working for RaceComp Engineering over the past few years has introduced me to a lot of people in the Subaru community, as well as expanding my knowledge about these cars a lot. Rather than just throwing parts at the car, I've tried to make everything work well together and I think it does. I've done all of my own work on the car (except the clutch install) and put a lot of time and effort into it. I plan on keeping it for a long time, whether it remains a dual purpose car or becomes a dedicated track/time attack car.

A stunning car, beautifully modifed. If i had a blob STI, it wouldnt look too dis similar to this. Also great to see that she's been built for purpose and gets used properly too.

Not ashamed to lose out to you Dan, youve done an amazing job on the car and i wish you all the very best for the future with it. Looking forward to seeing future updates.

Well done

Thanks, I tried not to go too over the top with the aesthetics, I tried to mod in such a way that everything serves a purpose rather than just looking pretty.

Yeah I've considered that. I'm 99% sure the window tint is coming off when I have time to do it, the taillight tint may go with it.

Thanks Frayz, I honestly think either one of us could have won this round. Your bugeye is one of the cleanest around...maybe I'll see you on the Ring someday

yeah, the warmup lap is usually pretty boring to watch but definitely necessary to bring the tires and brakes up to temp.

To everyone I didn't quote individually, thanks for the kind words.

Ok, I changed my mind. I think you should look at maybe lightening the tint instead so that it matches the colour of your car. Maybe photoshop it first. I might be "lightly" tinting my rears to match the PSM paint.
