Looks great man! Quick questions, having the car dynamated do you notice a difference in road noise or over all noise at that matter?
And can take a picture of just the center counsel? Been wanting to wrap that for awhile now.

Congrats man! You have a beautiful ride there. I hope she brings you many years of joy. When I get back and get my STI up and running we should take a cruise with Flippy and others.

that's a burnout you had so much trouble with the bugeye (i'm obviously a fan of them),
but the 05 STI looks great! I really like the wrx/black interior over the factory blue, looks
less ricey to me, and how the car should have came from the factory.
congrats on your new ride!

Nice car man, congrats on the upgrade!

Only thing I don't like is the steering wheel wrap, looks stretched and tired in the photos.
