Sounds really good, nice and deep! Who needs a subwoofer when you have UELs?!

Personally, I would've gotten the wheels powdercoated in the same gray secondary color of your car instead of black. I hate black on black because you can't tell when the wheel ends and tire starts, and they look like a blur from far away. Just my .02

Hahaha yeah they sound especially good on a nice 80deg day. Got myself a new job today so hopefully I'll be able to mod some more or just buy a cbr500 for work commute.

Yeah, I'm a sub contractor in the summer. So summer is when I will be doing all my mods. I plan on getting rallisport V3 UELS, OBX cat-back system, front and rear sways with new end links and bushings as well as 2 sets of WRX wheels. One for summer one for winter. And wrapping them in some really good tires.

Sounds good ill be waiting for those sound clips! I never got around to buying my front sway but I did end up replacing my ****ty oem wheels with the BFgoodrich g-force sport comp 2 on my stock premium rims. Best purchase besides the rsb. Stopping isn't a problem, cornering is amazing, and the wet/dry grip is beyond what I expected. When it rains the tires make it feel like dry tarmac haha.

U can pick up a STi or wrx bar for cheap if u check the san diego subies fb page or nasioc sd page. The mounting brackets r cheap as well. Just feels overall planted for those short on ramp/off ramp delights.

I use this on just a regular hose and it still produces a good amount of foam.

Paired with this soap; washing takes half the time!

My car usually needs a touch of a sponge to be clean, occasionally a good wash during pollen season.

Hard to get a good picture because some of the foam runs off by the time I get my phone ready. You get the idea though. I usually foam the car let it run off then rinse. Then foam again except this time go over with wash mitt then rinse. Depending on how much solution I have left in the foam lance I may foam it again and clay bar. Maybe use polish If I feel like it. Remove as much water as possible with water blade and finish off with microfiber towel. Then spray wax and finally buff car with ultra plush microfiber towel. I don't remember the last time I used a bucket to wash a car lol. (rinse off mitt with hose)

Better than Bridgestone Potenza's? Cause I'm looking for a set of WRX wheels and was debating between the g-force sport comp 2 or the Potenza.
