Hi all! Some of you guys might see a similar post on the other subie forums, it's a just a bit easier to copy and paste my intro...

Just wanted to introduce myself real quick...

I bought her back in May and I absolutely love her. My husband is a die hard gear head and a lot of that has rubbed off on me. He personally owns an Evo IX and has always modded everything he can get his hands on - from his motorcycles to his phones. He's most definitely helped me get this car going. If it weren't for him, it would have taken me years to put anything on it just because I like to take my time to research stuff out first. I am very cautious when spending hella money on mods for a car so he did a lot of research for me to cut the time in half.

Not interested in world domination, just wanted a nice looking, semi-fast car. I truly enjoy driving and she definitely makes it fun. I like the occasional impromptu road race, but I'm more into taking the scenic route to go places, just so I can drive a little bit longer. Out here in Gwinnett where we are, there's a lot of nice backroads full of S-Curves and hills which tickles me fancy - ARRR!! haha.

Most of what I have are the standard bolt-ons.

Cobb Tuning STi SF Intake, Cobb AP, Invidia Downpipe, I just had this installed on Friday, New from Batlground: Subaru Impreza WRX STI 1.5 Scroll Manifold with UpPipe | Batlground Motorsports Blog and she's going back to BG tomorrow to get a pro-tune by Dan. ProSport boost and air/fuel gauges and short shifter.

The previous owner had the Magnaflow exhaust installed as well as the RA Mudflaps and had it tinted.

I slapped on some CCW LM20's in Teal, wrapped with Hankook love, and she sits pretty on Fortune Auto Coilovers...I bought the Double Deck spoiler from BlackTop Aero, but there's some problems with the bolts. The H worked something out for it temporarily, but it needs to be replaced. Not too happy about that. Considering how long it took to get to me, umm yeah. I also bought the Type V front lip spolier, but now that I've seen the car with the wing, it's going to be up for sale in a minute so I can get something a little more aggressive.

Anyways, here's a few pics of my baby girl.

Thanks!

You're from Sudbury? My husband and I are originally from Toronto, (Mississauga/Markham, respectfully). We live in a 'burb 25 mins outside of Atlanta now...

Ahh.. Welland - I used to know some people that lived there awhile ago but since moved closer to Toronto. It's a nice area from what I remember. It's been a long time since I've been.

She's my beast. The H owns an Evo IX. It's rather humorous for us to own both the Evo and STi because about 4 years ago, we joked that it would be a pretty cool setup to have.

I'm glad to be aboard!

Those CCW's are sick wheels... my buddy has some 20" 3-pc CCW's on his S4. Entirely too expensive for me to justify but they are good looking
