This car confuses me.

Its so simplistic. So clean. It boggles my mind that not more people do things this way.

Great job.

Thanks for the awesome comment. I really appreciate the feedback. I can't keep up with crazy parts and über jdm stuff so my goal has been a clean oem yet modified look.

I should have some new pics in a few weeks. Took out stereo stuff and gauges, detint, new seat, and a few other things to clean up the interior.

Update: Installed the RECARO pole position with Buddy Club Low Down Rail. Feels amazing- it's like being part of the car instead of riding on it. Feedback is awesome.

Stupid iPhone pics right now. Im going to reshoot the car soon. I also removed all the tint.

Looks great man ! Loving the simple, yet good looking stance. And I really like the wrx wing instead of the usual wingless or the stock STi wing, definitely original. Also I checked out the other pictures on your flickr and your license plate made me chuckle haha. Inspires me and gives me ideas for my STi.... when I get one haha

UPDATE
I ran out of time to go to a location so interior/driveway pictures are all I have for now. I took a few hours this afternoon and detailed the interior.

There is alot of scattered info about installing aftermarket seats so maybe this will help others:

INSTALLATION
I am using the Buddy Club Super Low Down Rail that is essentially a BASE, SLIDER, and SIDE MOUNTS all in one. Not only does it save you money ($140 per side) it makes installation very easy, provides tons of adjustments, and can ride very low. You can switch the front brackets with the rear, add spacers, use RECARO side mounts on it, etc. To install it I just loosely mounted the rails in the car, then lowered the seat with the side mounts attached on to the rail. Because the side mounts are 2 pieces I was able to lean the seat back with just the rear side mounts on the rail and bolt them down. Then you can lower the front and bolt those down. Super easy, and only took me about 45 mins total. Its important that everything is placed in the car loose and only tightened once all bolts/nuts are threaded and the seat slides back and forth. IT IS POSSIBLE to reach every bolt once the seat is in place.

For the airbag trick I removed the Seat Position Detector thingy from the stock seat and plugged it back into in the harness, and then used 3 x 10 ohm resistors for the airbag connector. That is all that is needed to clear the light. I read several threads where the resistor trick didn't work, but IT DOES WORK! I think people are just doing it wrong or forgetting the position detector.

I am 6' (LONG LEGS, SHORT TORSO) and 230lbs. This thing could not fit me any more perfectly. Its snug, but not tight, and very comfortable. I was also looking at EVO 2s and Bride ZETA IIIs.

DRIVING IMPRESSIONS
Being part of the car vs riding in the car is an amazing feeling. Driving the car now, I can feel the suspension more, the engine more, etc. Butt feedback from the seat is now a factor in driving. That's the best way to put it. It also obviously holds me in incredibly well but that is a given.

WHAT'S NEXT?
Definitely HTAUTO Skirts, then I want to finish bushings- Rear Diff, Engine Mounts, Tranny Mount. I am also going to do bracing, like the CUSCO Front Power Brace, and add 1 fog light cover to draw more air. I think both will make the front look more aggressive. New wheels and tires are on my radar but will probably happen next year.

I found a vendor that sells every BBS cap. They were like $39/each though. I felt it was worth it LOL

Thanks for all the other comments

The HT Autos skirts are meant for WRX skirts only, and therefore sit really low on STi ones. Are you getting some WRX skirts as well?
