Default Kyls's 05 STi - work in progress

I bought my 2005 WRX STi on March 7th, 2011 after searching for one for months. I picked it up in Roanoke, VA and drove it home the same day. It had 62,000 miles on it (62,500 after getting it home) and it's extremely clean/well taken care of. It's never been in an accident, and I have detailed service records on it. I could tell the previous owner took good care of it (he had all 3 sets of keys and the owner's manual, something that some people can't keep track of haha) and was very knowledgeable about the car.

It runs great, drive great, and I absolutely love it. I could not be happier with my decision to purchase a STi.

That's one clean STI. Any modifications other than the mud flaps, exhaust, horns, cleared headlights, and v-limited lip?

Thanks man. First post edited to reflect current modifications. NASIOC doesn't have a "member's journal" section that I'm missing, right?

Not really this is where many people start their build threads. The car looks great and well kept!

Not worth it, the paint is already chipped to hell (note that it's freshly detailed in these pictures, not fresh paint). I just polished it and made it look decent. Someday when I buy a new STI a clear bra will be the first thing to go on though.

Well this past week has been interesting. On Sunday my eBay H brace broke and I went to the dealership on Tuesday to order a SPT brace (don't worry I paid less than I would have anywhere online for a new one).

On the way back from the dealership I'm driving along and as I get off the highway I start to smell coolant, I figured it was the car in front of me. next thing I see is steam billowing from the hood scoop. My friend and I pushed it to his girlfriend's house that was close enough to where I stopped. Found that the fans somehow cut into the upper radiator hose so I replaced it and all was well until the next morning when I went to go to work and my tire was completely flat. I pulled a pretty big screw out of it and plugged it even though these RE-11's are shot.



Now on to the good stuff:

The SPT H brace looks great and feels really solid. It cost about 5x more but it's built 100x better than the eBay brace. I Also picked up a SPT turbo heat shield, gotta keep that heat away from the TMIC!

Super clean 05 bro take good care of it... this your first STI?

I recommend doing a couple of the basic motor inspections like; compression, leak down
Shows if the motor is still running strong.

Good luck

Yes its my first STi, compression test was done before I bought it and everything checked out perfectly. I've only put about 4000 miles on it since going stage 2 but the car still feels as strong as it did when I first installed all the mods.
