Not really a whole lot of upgrades, just appearance stuff on the outside, eventually getting a WRX, so don't want to spend a whole lot on this one.

I am putting headers on it with an exhaust, so that will be the big upgrade for me.
Nice car. Love the wheels too. Where'd you get the sticker?

Update mine
Retrofitted bi-xenons, clear corners + stealth bulbs, HD Lip.

The throw out bearing, it probably isn't the same squeak you are getting but mine used to squeak every once and a while then a couple weeks ago squeaked all the time and finally wore out. The only reason it cost that much was because it burnt my clutch when the bearing went

I'm in the same boat my car just started making a new sound a few weeks ago sounds like front drivers side... Idk if it's the cold weather starting, one of the many bushings I replaced lacking grease, swaybar or end link related, or the konis which I hope not because they're only a year old and when my car got hit it didn't seem to mess any of that up so I'm hoping it's weather or lack of grease related lol

Can't tell from picture, but is it blue with gold (factory?) wheels? If so, I guess you painted the factory wheels.

I like it, bout as close as we will get to the traditional rally blue/gold wheels look.

I drive with the radio off 95% of the time, just listening. When I think I hear something I have find a hill and slap it in neutral or turn the car off because I can't hear anything over my exhaust.

Sounds like I lucked out with my car. Heat shield pinging is what I always get though once I turn my car off.

Otherwise I dynamatted my front doors and underneath the center console just for the hell of it.

My dash was noisy on cold mornings, but if you take off a-pillar covers and put some electrical tape or foam tape on the bottom of the plastic edge of the cover and put it back together, the noise stops.

I get a clunking noise from the rear wheels too, but I replaced my suspension and it still does it, if I grab the wheel when it's jacked up and move it, it makes the noise too. I don't know what it is

Nice headlights! May I ask what projectors you went with? I know trs/lightwerkz has a morimoto mini d2s setup that requires little to now modifying (other than adapter plates). Either way looks great.

Gbkallday2.5i- it depends. If you have te factory mounting points then it's super easy to "bolt on". Do you plan on using it for something? I.e. bikes, Christmas tree, dead bodies, etc? It can be useful but it also can affect your mpg's if your carrying stuff all the time or on long trips. Also keep in mind, the rack could possibly scratch your roof at the mounting points if you don't put down something underneath it. Other than what's listed above I love my rack

If you won't use it, then no.
if you'll use it regularly, then yes.

Can you share your experience with dynamat. I will be doing it soon to the rear hatch and maybe the doors. It's pretty expensive though.

Easy to use. Make sure you apply heat with it as it will apply easier. Dynamat is top notch. I've also used Fatmat. Same concept but dynamat is of better quality. The price also reflects that. You can use a roller to lay it down but I just used my hands. Just avoid getting air bubbles. Not hard at all.

Dynamat is really easy to use and put on. For quality sounds its better to use a heat gun and a wooden roller or plastic roller. I have dynamat all over my car and its been holding two years now. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.
