The Red Pinstripe from Autozone (most people use it on the grill) I went a little crazy. It's really easy to apply. I just did it along the upper edge of the trim because the bottom edge didn't flow as well.

I like it, bout as close as we will get to the traditional rally blue/gold wheels look.

Dark Gray Metallic, Sunburst Gold Metallic Wheel painted 2010 WRX wheels. Now I'm trying to find a set of 2011+ WRX wheels, when I do, I'll probably put these up, with a fresh coat of course.

Yep, the Mori minis with Philips bulbs. The Aftermarket bubls have igniting issues. Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Could be a number of things. I'd check the bearings and axle first.

Also keep in mind, the rack could possibly scratch your roof at the mounting points if you don't put down something underneath it. Other than what's listed above I love my rack
probably going to use it most of the one for the dead bodies.... tired of flopping them in the back seat and stinking up the interior and getting blood stains on the seat! what a pain!
are factory mounting points the little flap like things on the top on like the roof trim?
what brand do you suggest? do you know of any place that I can get one cheap?
thanks a lot!

a little too much info lol. I would recommend Yakima just because they look really nice and they have a lot of accessories. Although I believe thules square bars are a little bit stronger (less prone to flexing at heavier weight) you can get oem cross bars for cheap like $120+ used but I have them and they flex with my 40lb mountain bike

Not sure how much the OEM cost usually, but I got my bars for $40 and the side posts are painted DGM which matches the lower part of my car.

What's a good sway and strut bar? and are there any recommendations for short shifter kits or should I just piece them together with different brands?

Also forgot to tell you, whiteline is really good for sways. Strut bars it's really upto you. You can get a cheap gt-spec one for like $150, however the Cisco ones look really nice for $190ish. Ss kits-kartboy for simplicity, Cobb adjustable shifter is also nice. Depends on what you want really.

Got this exhaust of a 2012 STI Sedan, fits good and sounds way better than stock, had to do the usual trimming on the rear bumper and what not but for a $50 cat back I am very pleased.

My exhaust:



Will post videos and installed pix soon

I eliminated any muffler and run only a second resonator. Sounds good, will sound better with headers, and I may eliminate the first (factory resonator) later. Not much drone only around 60 in 5th gear if I accelerate at which I usually drop to 4th if I am passing anyhow, other than that I like it. Took my father on a trip (he is 65) and said it sounded fine (i.e. didn't bother him a bit).

It changes color in the sun just like pbp. It's just a bad direct sunlight pic on my part. Here's a better one next to an old wrb Mirra shirt.

Thanks

Mine went at about 38-40k and at a local repair shop it cost around $200 including parts and labor and a 'performance' alignment to my specs.

It would have been over $400 without an alignment at the dealer.
