I'm 6'3" and I have mine at the lowest it'll go and i still feel as if I am sitting too high. I guess I just like to be a low rider.

Has anyone here tried a rear sway bar thicker than 19mm? I like how the car handles now with the 19mm bar, and get along pretty well with the perfectly neutral steering, but tend to prefer a bias to oversteer, and was considering a 21 or 22mm. I'm not sure if anyone other than perrin sells a 22 though, since theirs is ridiculously expensive.

So, I noticed something. If you go onto Tire Rack and search wheels for our cars, no BBS's pop up. But if you search a BRZ, BBS's are on the list. Any reasoning? The specs for the wheels are the same as the stock Sport wheels, and people have run BRZ wheels on our Impreza's. So..

I was looking into a couple of them.. Anyone know anything? Might pick up a set of wheels before long. Probably as soon as the H&R's are officially released. lol

Whiteline has those braces for the rsb too. If you're going larger, you may want them.

I just ordered the perrin 22 rear and Cusco 24 front yesterday. I can update once they arrive.

Sometimes I feel like my Impreza is slowly transforming into a WRX with the stuff I've been doing to it. ...and the stuff I want to do to it eventually. Anyone know if 08+ WRX Seats will fit in our Imprezas? They're comfy and I like how they hold the driver. They're also pretty slick looking. Would they bolt-up to the mounting points on our 4th Gen Imprezas?

What is the part number on the Cusco front sway bar? All I see are WRXs and Forester listed. Thanks

If you go larger you probably will need aftermarket endlinks, so plan on spending 400+ to gain that extra few mm

Default 10k Odometer reset

this is probably a dumb question, but here it goes...

i recall hearing that once a trip odometer hits 10,000 miles, it resets.

so does that mean it just resets straight to zero, or does it stay pegged at 10k and just show a running average/statistics from the previous 10,000 miles?

i'm assuming the former, although the latter would be pretty cool

Goes back to 0. Happened to me over the weekend.

I was pissed, cuz I'd been using it to keep track of lifetime fuel economy, since the fuel economy readout in my car is quite accurate.

So I was looking to get a rallytek license plate delete. Will any license plate delete that fits the 08+ models fit our car? Do I need standoffs or any hardware to add it?

Anyone seen the jdm bottom door garnish on ebay? Very cool. But the price is intense.
