Impreza WRX STi BATSTi 06

Hi all!
I just bought an 06 STi with 97k miles on it. It's pretty clean, bought it from a Subaru dealer and I hope I won't have any problems with... I'm a student in the Uni of Utah and buying this car was a dream come true. I recently moved to the US from Bulgaria.
So the car is pretty stock, just a SPT intake and I think that's all from what I can tell and see. I have kinda big plans for it, but I'm not trying to make it 400+whp in a month I'm gonna do it slowly and consequentially so that I can get used to the AWD and the torque, cuz I had a FWD Audi back home aaand it's pretty different.
So far I've bought new set of tires with wheels(Rota P45R Black with Red Lip 18x8 on Continental ExtremeContact DW 245/35/18). I have a XS TBE, kartboy short shifter, some fluids(tranny, rear diff, coolant), cosworth intake, RCE yellow springs and will be getting a GS boost solenoid in a few weeks with a pro tune from Ziptie Dynowerks.First stop at Solid was today to swap the wheels next one is on Thursday for the TBE, sshifter, fluids, springs and diagnostics. Most of the installations will be done at Solid Autoworks and will be tuned at Ziptie(before my first tune they're gonna install the intake and the bcs). For now this is what I'm gonna put in it until probably the end of Oct.
Here are some pictures from the first day I got it. Enjoy!

Just got it shipped from MA with brand new winter tires with the stock wheels.

Getting first carwash.

Closer look of the wheels.
I have a question for the Gurus I hope I don't get screamed a lot.... In time I'm thinking to replace some internals of the engine I was thinking either getting Flatirons Tuning's shortblock or just putting new pistons with rods, bearings and ringlands.
THANK YOU!

no rub at all, offset is +48 cuz for starters I did just springs and I'm gonna stick with these wheels until coilovers.. I dunno I haven't figured it out yet but no rub. 245/35/18

I love it! Looks very high quality and mine is the version2 which is the newer one(there's almost nothing different between the previous one and this one). Sound's really nice... pretty loud! I didn't notice a big difference going catless but you can hear the turbo spinning more clear some of my buddys at my dorm say that they hate me when I leave early in the morning and that they know when I go out or come back

Coilovers installed today! BC BR Series 10f/8r.

Not too low for the winter, at least it's an even gap front and rear.



Salt is the *****.....



Rear extenders.
Drove it for a while on the softest dampening option - pretty stiff(stiffer than with the RCE yellows).
