Flew out to Agoura Hills, California from Arizona and picked her up from the original owner. Went off of a gut feeling I had from talking to the seller on the phone, only had two pictures before flying out to pick her up. Landed in California to meet the original owner who was in his 70s, and picked her up right away with 28,900 Miles on the Odometer, everything completely stock since Day 1 Only "mod" was that the trunk had been swapped for a WRX trunk.

12/19/13 Installed a front lip. No real V-Limited for me, just a Bayson-R Motorsports Replica lip with the Sti limited badge.




1/27/14
Up on the Dyno @ SRP Tuning for a baseline run




2/1/14

And the fun begins! Got some parts installed and a tune at Soulless Performance. New Spark Plugs, Invidia N1 Race Catback, Invidia v2 Catless Bellmouth Downpipe, Grimmspeed 3 port EBCS, a Cobb Accessport v3, and a pro tune by Travis Cooke @ SRP.

New wheels arrived! 18X9.5 +38 5X100 Limited Edition Gunmetal Enkei RPF1s




3/31/14

Wheels on! Went with 255/35/18 Pirelli P Zero Neros. 8mm Spacer required to clear the brembos in the front, fenders were rolled around with a decent pull in the rear and a slight pull up front. 05-07 STI Rear Fender flares and bumper to come to finish off the rear fenders, as well as going a little lower and dialing in the fitment

05-07 Rear Fender Flares installed to cover up the pull! Used 3m Panel Bond to put them on, worked out great and install was easy. Also adjusted the ride height, barely lower in the front but brought the rear down a decent amount. Got the car aligned, and Decided to dip the RPF1s white to see how it looks.

Took the plastidip off, got way too dirty too fast and the white got old. Visually, I have everything where I want it now!






4/27/14
Replaced the factory 6 disc changer with a Pioneer AVH-X5500BS Headunit. Makes the factory speakers/sub sound awesome

Gorgeous. You ever go to pavs? I just picked up a low mileage 04 myself, would love to grab some shots with you

Ride height looks great at all, do you rub at all?

Thanks man, yeah I make it out to Pavs about once a month! Ill have to find you out there next time I go, that would be sweet to get some shots of our cars together. Rears have never rubbed, and front rubs the fender liner every once and a while if making a u turn with the wheel fully turned, or if I go over a big dip.

I got them online, from Subaru Genuine Parts.

Link: http://www.subarugenuineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1245

My rear bumper is an 04 STI Rear Bumper, which is the exact same as the stock wrx rear bumper.

Love it man! The RPF1's really set it off. The white looks good but the gun metal color is a lot less loud.
