Great look and performance mods added. I'm also from Vw Vortex and even though I love my Subaru, my weakness is still VW's.
Ps, we both have Obsidian black cars lol.

Custom Alignment today. Only doing -1.5 F / -1.8-2.0 R, which should be good for a DD and tire wear.

Review for FEAL 441 Coilovers to come after alignment is done.

I like the BBS's, but they're already getting a little pitted, so now it's time to decide if I go with a new summer set or some spacers and refinish. Also, the dilemma for me right now is whether to go gold on black or high gloss black on black.

These two cars show what I'm looking for - Either way I think I'll go with the R205 side badge as well.

Hella High Performance Xenon Blue Bulbs (fog lights)
http://fastwrx.com/herehabu.html

Rally Armors and Coil Covers installed - Trying to mitigate wear and tear during the winter. Fog Lights were cake, so those went in too.

Can't seem to find the DIY for the whiteline positive rear traction inserts... Hoping to be able to do 1 at a time so re-aligning the bolts shouldn't be an issue. Also hoping that the top inserts ("tall insert") can squeeze in there without too much hassle - Whiteline does list it as DIY difficulty, we'll see... Anyone know of a DIY write up for these?

Pictures to come soon...

Next plans are to paint/wrap interior trim to black, alcantara wrap A pillars, & new front lip.

Nice build so far! Looking forward to seeing how you like those blue fogs. I really don't like the oem fogs, especially with HID headlights...

unfortunately Mach V/ Fastwrx didn't have the orignal bulbs I ordered. They told me they had some Hella bulbs that were close, but they really aren't. Eventually, to match, I'm hoping to get some HID conversions. Here's what they look like in my winter wonder land.

Installed JPM boots, Engine bay dress up shields, and Goodridge lines/fluid. Brakes are a pain in the ass when it's 5degrees lol.

The JPM boots fit amazing and really tie the interior together. Totally worth every penny if your looking to make the interior nicer. Had to make sure to spend a little time on the E-Brake boot since it needed to be glued on.

The shields look great, especially with the AEM intake in red. Definitely need to make sure that belt shield is tightened down though. I found that one of the spacers had fallen out after a drive down to Iowa. Luckily the spacer was sitting down in the splash guard still.

The brake lines and fluid are amazing. I cannot believe how much better the brake feel and performance is. Obviously with it being winter, and having Dunlop winter sport 3d's, the tire grip is not enough to keep up. Regardless, the feel and control on the brakes has made such a dramatic difference. The power bleeder was worth every penny as well. I found that my back left and front right had some air in it when I was flushing, felt great to get all 4 corners fully flushed.

Next steps will be bushing inserts and rear sway supports. Will be going to a buddies shop to install these I think. Probably waiting for it to warm up though, no sense in stiffening up suspension when it's barely over 5 degrees. Picture to follow soon on installed parts once it warms up a little and I can clean things up.
