Well technically it wasn't today but last weekend. Replaced the radiator, timing belt, pullies, and pump. New plugs. Cleared, painted and polished the head lights. Painted that center grill support behind the badge black. Rebadged the trunk and polished the pipe.
Replaced my front end links with AP's and recentered the sway bar to get rid of that annoying thunk when going over bumps.
Tranny and engine oil change.
Then I washed and waxed.

It's the 2000+ bumper with the holes for attaching the lip. Bought it used from a member here along with the amber turns and vents.

You going with the JDM lightweight beam or the real one? I bought the real one so a 5mph accident doesn't crush my engine.

hay, I replaced the bushings in my windshield wiper arms today, was probably the biggest pain in the ass, but the best upgrade so far, especially being in this rainy state!

I guess this was yesterday, but I put new wipers (Bosch Icon) on the front and applied Aquapel to the windshield and the hatch glass.

Thanks, it somewhat a miracle that I'm still walking after installing the trans and engine by myself
I recovered the drivers seat yesterday and it really kicked my ass.
Those things have 4 motors in them and must weigh 80lbs
Beginning to think I'm getting old or something.

you're burning bridges before you even start?




Sounds to me like you know your exhaust is too loud (hence you mentioned that you would add the silencer when inspected) and are doing nothing about it. If a guy lived next to me with a loud car (subaru or not), I'd be pissed if I heard him leave every morning and come back every night.

^uh huh. What exhaust do you have anyway?


Back on topic. Threw my winter wheelset on for season #2 on my Pirelli Sottozero 240 serie II winter tires. I love these things in the winter but I'm gonna miss my sticky summer tires.

First and foremost HOA is a joke. I pay $45 a month for no damn reason that I can see except for them to send me annoying ass letters about the most mundane thing. If a neighbor had an issue with my car than I suggest they man the eff up and come talk to me about it. My exhaust is loud and I will take steps to mitigate this noise in the morning regardless of the outcome of this whole issue. And yeah ill burn that bridge to the ground if they don't have a system in place to take care if issues that arise then I guess they really shouldn't be running anything than should they.


Exhaust us an invidia n1 race. However I don't romp on it on my way to work I keep it well under 2k when leaving. Issue probably arise while I'm going up the hill after my driveway so ill just go down the Jill with no gas from now on. My neighbors wrx us just as loud if kit louder than mine and he's letter free

I've got this dick in a obnoxious Honda that moved in a few houses down. Leaving in the morning and coming back in the evening I could take. This ass comes and goes all day long. 6 times in the last 4 hours. Pretty sure he's dealing.
