Picked up this genuine JDM STi keyring. Black with red stitching will go well with the interior!

New seats have arrived. I had JPM coachworks work some magic on them

In the meantime, I installed the COBB SF Intake and Maddad 3" TBE system. Car is slightly less loud than when I had an Invidia N1 Street CBE, but has full turboback. I think the noise level is almost perfect, just need to reduce cabin noise from trunk slightly. Aiming for the luxury feel.

I got a street tune so no dyno numbers, but the car runs great and pulls much stronger. I also installed launch control and flat foot shifting, sounds sick! Ill try to post a video soon.

Some pics;







My car at Chipracing in Switzerland, some of the best tuners in the country for Subies! Have a feeling ill be there more often soon... Already so used to stage II

The 2 front pieces are to clean the headlights, a requirement in Switzerland. The rear black pieces are back up sensors, which are useless and look like crap.

I'll be getting a new bumper soon anyway w/ sensors to go with the HKS diffuser as this one is pretty beat up.

Andy Or aka 'orwrx' on IWSTI made them for me.

I was talking to a friend of mine and he mentioned that now with the lack of badges and molded trunk the rear was looking a little bland.

I’ve been thinking to put an STi badge again on the rear, but have a few options in mind…

1) 08 STi badge
2) Black & silver STi badge
3) Red STi badge
4) Stock Pink STi badge
5) No badge

What shall I do?

Hey everyone, I havenít updated in a while, been busy with my summer project ☺

Some recently arrived parts have been put onto the car, I am slowly getting there with the look I want to achieve. Big thing missing now is the wheel setup. Ride height will not change, its already almost too low considering swiss mountain roads, especially with the new skirts!

First of all the Bride Stradia II Japan carbon backed seatsÖ. What can I say they are amazing. JPM Coachworks did a great job on them to change the stitching from original grey to red, to match the rest of the interior. I also clear wrapped the back of the seats to make sure they donít get scratches when loading skis onto the car.








Iím 6í2 with a small waist and they are a snug fit for me, just about right, a little tight on the shoulders/lats though. Getting in and out of the car has also become slightly more complicated haha. They completely change the looks and feel of the interior.

Apart from that I also installed the Whiteline steering rack bushings, Stoptech stainless lines, ferrodo DS2500 pads and Motul RBF fluid exterior wise the HTAUTOS FRP Sideskirt lips have also been installed, matching the front V limited lip.

I also added the STi glovebox latch


And fixed the Velocity Carbon trunk by using some rubber coated neodymium magnets to hold the trunk up in place. The trunk lines up perfectly now.


Quick shot of the car (dirty). You can see the HTAUTOS FRP Sideskirt lips.

I'm sorry about not getting back your PM wayy back about the trunk. I was kind of on a hiatus. I only got to my trunk now because of reading your thread along with others. I picked up some neodymium magnets as well but mine are not rubber coated. They need to be lined or something. Right now mine is next to the rubber stopper. I did not take it out. Also I had to drill out and slot the trunk arms to slide the trunk toward the rear more. Lastly I angled the latches with washers. I wish it fit better without all this work.
