Had some interior parts CF wrapped, and resmoked the headlights... Also, a while back put on a trunk lip spoiler, shown here as well.





I'll take better pics hopefully this weekend, when I can do a full shoot after a wash.

Went to R&H Garage, got Whiteline Rear end links put on, positive shift kit, and LED's on the front with independent switch.

No good pics of it yet, but try to take some later this weekend for whomever cares. I know the LED's arent for everyone, but given that i also dont have fog lights, its good secondary source...

Steering rack bushings will be going on next, but the package contents didn't include all the pieces

Fresh wash and wax, figured I'd go for a drive and find some various places to stop off and shoot:

Stage 2 today, whiteline steering rack bushings, removed spacers (in prep for wheels, and cause rubbing is lame), and fresh wash.

Boy does the car drive a lot nicer. Definitely much more noticable going from Stage 1 - Stage 2 for me than it was going stock tune to Stage 1. The pull in all gears is significantly better, regardless of where you are at in the powerband. Pulling even from 2k RPM it starts spooling up quick and just feels a lot more torque'y. Very happy with the upgrade and will even look to potentially upgrade to a Custom map (or protune should i decide to add some mods).

Removed the spacers because i was bottoming out with the H&R springs, and I do want to get some 18's at some point. Also given the fact that I have some good power behind the car now and some suspension mods, I felt it was extremely detrimental to have the spacers and rub while pushing the car around corners or over bumps. It is crazy how much better the 25mm spacers look on the car though as it completely removes wheel gap, and on the stock suspension setup, is fully functional without any rubbing issues.

Dim is the word. Usually those LED signals are very bright.

Explain the wiring?. How many LED per bulb?

60.. I got them off Fastwrx.com (http://www.fastwrx.com/coledtusibu.html) so I know they're supposed to be brighter. I'm wondering if it's just because of the powering i have for the LED DRL's too...?

I had the shop install when I got the Downpipe put in as well. I wanted it to be on an independent switch so I could control it solo, and I don't have close to the electrical expertise for that.

Looks good, I like the wingless look, and now the trunk lip spoiler look, but to each their own. Any future plans?

Aw man, send me your thread when you create one, always like to see others and get ideas. I think I'll try wrapping or Plastidip'ing my hood scoop this weekend, see how it looks with the other black accents I got. I know it looked pretty good on WRB and SWP...

Shall do man. During the winter I won't be doing many upgrade or visual mods because I am in college so I don't make as much. I'm ordering a shark fin antenna soon because some a** hole broke my stock one off. Hella's are also gunna be added very soon. How do you feel about plasti-dip on the front, rear and side WRX emblems. I want the emblems to be either red or black but I can't decide.

Also what parking lights are those, they look so nasty!! I also love the black roof. I want to do that as well

umm, it looks pretty good, if you search around, it's been done. For me I've been trying to go less is more. So removed the wrx in the front grill, used a paint pen to fill out the WRX letters on the side badge so they pop, and the debadged the rear except for just WRX.

The parking lights are just tinted, you can look into laminx sheets and do it yourself if you like, or i think there are companies that make them precut, but I wouldn't recommend that. Pre cut doesnt leave any room for error or compensating like the sheets.

I don't have the STI wing, but, they probably just did a trunk swap with someone who had an STI but wanted wingless look (without having to fill the trunk holes)

yes trunk swap is correct, its hard to find someone who wants to trade and in the same color. you ever thought about painting your side emblems black?

I was originally, and still might, but for a quick fix/change, I just wanted to see how it would look with just Emblems and I really like how it pops. The whole fender badge being black would look okay with overall accents, but I do like how you can actually read the WRX legibly...
