Default spotted a silver WRX at Carlsen Subaru

...parked in the service area. It had a nice aftermarket dual-tip exhaust (M2?), some 17" wheels, and some bright red suspension bits. I noticed it right as I was pulling out of the parking lot, so I didn't get a real good look at everything.

Anyone want to claim it? =)

Nice ride! I think I might have talked to you briefly a few weeks ago when I was buying my car.

What kind of wheels do you have on there?

Hey, it's that Larry guy who done sold me my car! Heh...

Off-topic: Larry, how much would it cost to have the front lip spoiler and side sill spoilers added to my car, since it's red and would need painting?

Y'all,
I've got p7 wheels. The spt suspension only lowers the car 1/2 - 3/4 inch. Dampening rates are very well matched to the spring rates and the car eats bumps although the ride in daily driving is a little harsh. Cornering limits are higher but the stock suspension is in some ways more fun; more tossable and predictable.
As for painting the body kit, I would ask around and find a good body shop. A poorly done one will be flaking red paint in a year. Sorry I don't know who is good.
Larry

Our service department will install the short shift. Give them a call for pricing.

The exhaust is a Stromung I bought from Mike Shields at SPD Tuning. I've read on this board that he is out of commission ( I hope temporarily). It has a mellow sound and is not too loud.
One of the techs here just put on a Zeigen cat back on his WRX and it is loud.
You are welcome to listen to mine. Let me know if you are coming as I sometimes drive my GTI VW .
