How was the installation? I'm thinking about picking one up for my 09 hatch, but i want to make sure the mounting points are mostly universal.

Didn't come with instructions but installation is straight forward: remove rear bumper -> remove crush bar -> install brackets -> reinstall crush bar and rear bumper -> mount splitter.

I have no idea if it will fit an 09 wrx though.

Did you redrill the Flapatax to stick out less? Looks identical to how I did mine.
I really like the Nameless, it is pretty quiet. I got the non-resonated midpipe so you could go even quieter if you get a midpipe with one. See these vids:
Right after install:

I did redrill the flapatax, like you

The extremecontacts (note, they are the DWS version) are nice, no complaints. They gripped well in all conditions I experienced this year, which included very little snow unfortunately . They are a no-brainer if you will see snow. I plan to keep these as a winter tire and will probably get the extremecontact DW for summer.

Quick pics of mine. Still a work in progress. I bent two wheels at the track last week so now I'm trying to figure out if I want to buy two wheels to replace them or just buy a new set. I was thinking Rota Grids.

I had those exact tires on the legacy. I felt they did a perfect job all around the year. I live in NH and the 2 winters the tires saw, they were flawless. Could drive circles around 4x4's with them. Handled perfectly when I took the car up to the Kancamagus Highway in the summer as well. However, the car (no turbo) didn't quite have the get-up-and-go to truly take advantage of them.

Here's the best picture I have of them on the Legacy, can't "see" them per se, but you can see the treads in the snow.


Right now I am running the stockers and they seem to hold up just fine for summer time. Come the fall, I will most likely pick up a set of these again because I loved them so much.

Looks good! I was considering buying Boost 2s but thought the spokes would look too thin. I wonder if Boosts have the same spokes as Boost 2s.. What are the specs?

The Rota Boosts look really good on your car.

Thanks. It does suck but it's life. Hopefully I can get them repaired.
