I am really happy with my 08. Going to firm up the suspension soon, but keep the engine stock until my extended warranty is expired.

I haven't had a car in almost three years and told myself I wouldn't mod past the wheels, but I can't help myself. Replaced the hatch trim with factory painted and it looks so much cleaner.

Flaps are actually really good. However be careful when backing in a parking space. I ripped one off. I called RA and they wanted 44.00 for 1 flap. So I just repaired it. Just and fyi.

Yeah I'm going to leave my engine alone for awhile but need to do something with the suspension. I think i'm going to try '11 Sti springs instead of the RCE yellows, I think they are stiffer than I want for daily driving. Just have to figure out what struts to use (maybe the Bilsteins from GTWorx).

Why not just raise the car so the flaps don't drag and get worn down?

E85 is great. Only issue I would say is... prolly the mileage. That is however...my fault. When I drive her normally its great but when I get on it. I can definitely tell shes sucking the fuel. haha.

Also in the winter its a PITA to start but I heard if you dilute it with some 93...it'll be fine. It's been about 35-38 degrees out every morning and she starts just fine. I love it.

Yes. There is Tobz (he deals with a lot of EVOs)

Thought I had one with the shorty antenna instead of the R/C car one, but I guess not...and wow that second pic is a lot noisier than I thought it was. I should look for the cleaner one.

Sounds like you might want to get Konis and SPT STI pinks or Epic if you want a lower ride height. The RCE/Bilstein reviews are just too good. I think the tradeoff for wayyyy less body roll for a little harshness is going to be worth it.

Nice ride btw. Is that a Lachute Performance sticker on the side window?
