Default Great first meet!

Hey all, I certainly enjoyed my first meet with you guys/gals.

Can't lie, a little embarrassed to be there in a N/A car, but still good.

I'll certainly be back.

cheers (the guy in the cast)

looking like a good turn out

I'll make it there one week to meet you all.. replaced my fuel filter last night and it took longer than expected. Multiple trips up and down stairs to get boiling water to soften the hoses, living in apartments has its cons when trying to do work on your car..

In other news ordered some custom UEL headers from Oregon today. Borlas wont work since they're duel port and I have single port headers

Can anyone suggest a shop in town that can install the new headers i recieved today, as well as sell and install me either a catback system or an axleback and fabricate the pipe from the cat to the rear?

The only guy I know in town (Metchosin actually) does mostly fab work for old hot-rods and muscle cars, plus he's not cheap or particularly speedy. However his welds are art and I've caught people actually waffling from bitching about his prices to lusting over more work from him once they see his welds.

He was supposed to do my exhaust but I looked into the Magnaflow rebranded exhaust from RR and decided it'd be faster/easier/better to go with something RR is accustomed to. Course then I waited like a month for the exhaust to ship over to RR where my car was in pieces, the whole time I had to drive a beater around. ;p

I'm not worried about artwork welds, just a functional, well sounded exhaust to complement the UEL headers

Yeah I got nothing for quick and easy.. and cheap.

Oh wait, I do have an STI stock take-off exhaust system (turbo-back) from an 04 but I doubt that's what you are going for?

if anyone is looking for winter tires, I just picked up a set of Michelin X-Ice for $753 in 215/45/17 (163/tire + tax) for my LGT from Canadian Tire. They are on sale right now. There is also a $70 mail in rebate.

I called around and the best price at other shops was around $200/tire.

Also, a guy driving a silver LGT waved at me when I was driving by uHaul the other day, didn't realize what happened until after I drove by... so, hi.

Does anyone here take their cars to Cedar Hill Auto on Naniamo St? I drove by there awhile ago and saw a few STIs (2 blue ones iirc) and a WRX.

Good to know, I'll keep that in mind if I need some work done that I can't do myself. Getting Vic Front End to put in new Whiteline front lower control arm bushings tomorrow.

Joined the group, just waiting for approval.

Hey everyone,

Awesome to find you guys. I've been wondering about car meets in Victoria for a while and I'm happy I came across this thread! I just bought a 2013 WRX in the summer, and I'd love to start coming to meets.

Can somebody share the URL for the facebook page? I tried searching "Vancouver Island Subaru Owners" like Dsin said, but I didn't see anything.

I have soccer practices on Thursday nights so I won't be there every week, but I'll definitely make it when I can!
