Some random pics from over the summer and such. The last one you can really see the tint job that I gave up wrestling with after I finished the four side windows -__- I plan on getting it all done professionally within the next couple of weeks haha

Do you guys in the snow with coilovers run the same dampner settings as summer or do you guys run softer? Thinking about driving to the snow this break with a friend, and I'm pretty sure it'll be snowing fairly hard

I ran mine as soft as possible while not rubbing and left it alone.

09subi2.5i- I gotcha. I like it from far away but the black mesh really kills it for me. I would much rather have a Wrx grille or sport grille lol.

Just keep an eye on the classifieds. Or keep an eye on someone who has one and when they switch, ask. I noticed that a guy local to me got a sport grille for his '10. Almost immediately I asked him about his stock grille. I bought mine off of him.

I think the '10/'11 2.5i Grille looks fantastic.

Big snow last night.

Let me know if the vids work, first time doing this. I was kind of hard on reverse, but it was either that or shoveling 3 feet of snow that the plow left.



Edit: was using a crappy iPhone, and gf had her hand over the mic second time around.

Damn lucky bastard. Also you car sounds amazing. Anytime I know its gonna snow I reverse into the driveway or garage. I feel more comfortable going hard in first gear through the snow.

That's the setup I want to do. Did you do them both at the same time? If it was exhaust first how does it sound with the stock header?

I put both on at the same time. I couldn't drive around with just the exhaust. I find they sound like civics without the headers. No offense to anyone with a catback and stock headers, just not what I was looking for.

Question for anyone: What would you buy for your car if you had $450 to blow? I was originally thinking an OBX catback, but I'm unsure how well it will do in winters as far as corrosion. Any ideas? I was thinking of tinting my windows, but can only do rears in NH, so it sucks. Also maybe mudflaps. I've already done wheels and tires for now and headunit for stereo. Kind of want something external.

Front/rear sways end links etc...

WRX struts/springs

Save a bit more for Raceland coilovers

Rallisport exhaust header


If you tint the windows do 50% up front it's noticeably darker than factory but can see in/out no problem, even at night and it makes a big difference in keeping the heat out in the summer.

I like ISC I've seen them in the vendor forums for $875 shipped. They are often compared to the BC Racing coilover but the ISC's have a larger body, custom spring rates at no extra charge, and can be serviced stateside in Mass by AJW Performance.
A few people have Racelands which are about $550 shipped and seem to like them. They have mixed reviews and receive a lot of hate from the guys with $4000 wheels, who are also the people who have never used a Raceland product. They have a great warranty that can't be beat.

Edit: Check the 2.5i thread in the members gallery! A user with Racelands posted a photo and I asked him about his thoughts as he's been using them for some time now. Just waiting for a reply.

I got a straight pipe for the muffler delete instead of a while new catback and i love it. I'm planning on painting it in high temperature paint to ward off the rust. I have black, but I'm planning on getting some silver to keep it stock looking
