I'm amazed how well that gold plastidip metalizer came out! Might do that to my stock wheels when they get dedicated to winter duty. I want to see them in person. Does it still feel like plastidip? Normal black plastidip is hard to clean. Interested to see how this holds up.

Oh, you're the guy that deleted your car's barometric pressure sensor so the ECU thought it was running at 12,000ft below sea level.

I have a nameless catback with the magnaflow muffler on my 2011 STi hatch. It's pretty quiet until you get on the throttle then it's throaty. I didn't want something crazy loud so it's a good balance.
