I'm an avid snowboarder so just took these pics for fun First one is after we went to Big Bear




Short Shifter and bushings went in shortly thereafter. The SS and front bushing was done first, which made a noticeable difference. I later added the rear stay bushing and the pivot bushing and everything is now very accurate with little to no slop



I also swapped out the speakers for some Rainbow Platinums up front. You can see the difference in the magnet sizes from stock



The next thing in line was getting foglights put in, which I really wanted when I bought the car but didn't want to spring for the premium! The HID's from my old car were the same bulb type, so I was able to pop those in as well to have HID lows and fogs! I also cleared out the headlights that day with the help of a friend

Then I went Stage 1 with the Cobb AP, but there's really no pictures of that That brings us up to the present where I had the first (I think) Stoptech BBK testfit by Stoptech at their facility. It is a 328x28mm kit that preserves the stock brake bias and has 4 piston calipers. I opted for the slotted rotors and also got stainless front and rear brake lines.






I went and test fitted my snowboard rack. I am using the OEM crossbars with a Yakima FreshSesh snowboard rack. The Yakima comes with everything you need to attach it to the factory bars so no worries. You just might want to pick up some SKS core locks to protect your gear! I opted for the snow camo theme

There are a few threads on how to attach a Wind Deflector (Fairing) to the cross bars since they are so loud when driving.

Nice job. Nice StopTechs too. I usually see a lot of people who start adding a bunch of horse power and never up-grade their stopping power.

Well if he curbs Rotas, it isn't as upsetting as Advans. I don't get spending thousands on something that gets hit by curbs, pot holes, etc.

Changing subject, I LOVE the sedans in WRB. The only thing I regret when I bought my sedan...getting it black

Could you provide a little more info about the speakers (i.e. size, etc) and maybe some info about the computer and what kind of screen you are using. That is pretty pimp. I like your style, very clean.
