Default Joel's 2015 WRX Premium CVT Build Journal, Gallery, and How-to Guide

Proud new owner of 2015 WRX CVT. I've already made a number of modifications to the car and future items are in consideration.

I want to use this thread to share my work and also if you like my mods, to make your mods easier to install with my how-to videos.

Most recent pics - 28Feb2015










Purchase Details
I purchased my car through Liberty Subaru in Emerson, NJ via DJ Meola. Although the wait time exceeded 4 months, I have to say I'm EXTREMELY pleased with my purchase, Liberty's purchase process, and most notably DJ. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another vehicle through him and this dealership.

Hey ntuned

Anytime. Trying to make it easier for those that may like what I've done, to be able to do the same with minimal ease and issues.

Let me know if there is anything you have done that you want to share as well as maybe I would consider adding this to my list of upcoming enhancements.

Cheers

Thanks... I had to relocate them. All good now. I even added one more for the dual console.

Can you tell me more about the "Console box: Dual Console Box @ AvoJDM "

Do you have the extendable arm rest?

Hi there,

I don't have the extendable arm rest. While this would be nice, I much prefer the higher arrangement of the console as my elbow now sits just fine.

Installation is extremely easy and takes approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.

If you need more pics just let me know.

Awesome - thanks for the fast response.

Trying to figure out if I can get this to work with the extendable armrest. My elbow has trouble reaching the armrest, even at it's fully extended position.

I can't wrap my mind around building a CVT. Maybe the same reason why all the 500+WHP Civic's sit in a garage and never see a track. Anyways, Very nice looking car, congrats on the purchase.

Default HID low beams and Fog LEDs comparison

Hello all -

Below are some pics for you to see a bit more detail of my headlight combination:
1. Morimoto 5000k HIDs (I chose NOT to install their custom lens and use stock)
2. Morimoto 5000k LEDs (I chose to install their directional lens.. which works GREAT)

Coloring is not 100% same and I may consider yellow Laminex'ing the LED fogs later.... not sure yet.

The JDM extension works with the OEM USDM opening extension. I attempted a quick fit with mine as I had both the stock and the optional armrest extension and it mated up nicely. Problem is the extension moves forward and up. For me it seemed ridiculously high.

Can you take pictures of the arm rest open? I may get those but I am super short so not sure if my elbows will even reach since my chair is so far forward.

Are you talking about the USDM extended? If so he has the OEM regular armrest on the JDM extension. The JDM extension only lifts the armrest and moves it slightly more forward. There are no multiple positions with the JDM one.

Nice WRX, I also opted for the CVT but in the DGM color. Any pics of your lights at night, I need to get some brighter low beams, the stock low beams are too weak for me, I'm not sure if I want to get LEDS or HIDS???

I haven't seen any extended arm rests in person, and all of the pics of it that I have seen look like the same pics. Post them if you got them.

I just went with the same Weapon for my snow set up based on your pics for my 15WRB. I chose the Hankook snows though in 225/45. Thanks Joel!
