I just got a written estimate for my first major 3 year/ 30k mile service. It was around $700 but included cabin air filter, oil change, and engine air filter. I do the air filters and do oil changes on my own different schedule. Also it included a $200 automatic trans service. Mine is 5 speed stick.. So I figure it'll be about $450 or less when I have mine done at the end of summer.. or so.

Looks good! Once I'm not so poor, I'll be buying those too.

I went to some local car meet tonight, and I thought they were going to eat me and my poor 2.5i. I can't wait to get real wheels/do the (hybrid) intake.
Also, I shot a photo a while ago that I thought you guys would appreciate, I'll post it shortly.

Great find! That's where I got mine. Found a parts reseller parting out an wrecked OBP STI. Got the spoiler and the signal mirrors. Both mods I am extrememly happy with.

I left my 3rd brake light clear but I also haven't tinted/overlaid my tails.

FINALLY! After looking for over two years, I've finally found that damn wing in DGM! Rallisport headers are coming in two weeks, Tsudo N1 is sitting in my garage. Gonna be a fun month



Now I need to get some wheels.... Like ASAP. There's a nice sized bubble on my front tire which scares me, so I'll use that as a reason to upgrade haha!
