Your car is seriously sweet.

Where did you order your side skirts?

Not cheap, but quality costs $$$.

Again Flex, love this set up. I just spent a few minutes photoshopping your wheels/brembos on my hatch and blacking out the roof. It's a solid setup and gives me an idea of where to go with my build. (Don't worry I won't copy too much )

Short answer: No

Volk/Rays are manufacturing 5x100. Mackin Industries receieved the first batch last summer then allocated a certain amount of the wheels to go to authorized distributors. Issue was a majority of the 5x100 were staggered setups for the BRZ/FRS. Apparently only 9 sets of 4 (36 wheels) in semi-gloss black 18x9.5 +40 came in last summer. Black, Silver, Matte Graphite, and Blue are all now showing up. It's locating full sets of 4, the color you want, and the wait for them can be irritating.

The places mentioned above by others are reputable options.

I don't know of it has already been asked. But where can I get the Subaru/Defi gauges you have. I am very interested in picking up a set. Thank you and beautiful WRX!

Thanks. The question has been asked. Based on references the best bet to use as an overseas vendor is japanparts. IWSTI members used jp for the gauges and had good dealings.

The gauge set is perfect if there's an OCD factor to the color scheme. Defis aftermarket lineup is top tier. Mechanically, I couldn't find much difference with Defi's aftermarket units and the red face is still a perfect match. The units, needle and SUBARU are the differences on the faces.

I think the Perrin one isn't as bad as the hard ones like the AMR or AP, still probably a tricky install tho

The air pump has been removed. Cosworth plates used for the delete.

is your VG an SPT part or another brand? In the pics it looks as if your VG goes perfectly from molding to molding. From other pics that I have seen of the product, their are usually gaps between the VG and the moldings

Reasons for this removal are commonly weight savings(~10lbs) or more often to accommodate turbos with larger compressor housings (Removing the secondary components on the passenger side). Only item retained is the barometric pressure sensor.

Since you are believing that it goes from molding to molding, then I have succeeded.

The VG is SPT. Color matching the VG and using the vinyl helped achieve this illusion of a complete piece.

The changes relevant to the pics above are the 3" Perrin inlet, air pump removed, COBB EWG bracket installed, and Process West standard compressor outlet silicone hose. All relative to the main upgrade...

That turbo sucks. I don't know why you would ever want to bolt one of those on your car.
