Hello y'all. Been a lurker on here for awhile and never had a Subaru till 4 months ago. I originally got a used 2k miles DGM STI from a sister dealer where I work for a great price but ended up buying the real color I wanted! The hyper blue STI! Here are pics how the last 2-3 months of ownership of the hyper blue came about!

Bride rep front seats
Wedge brackets
Carbon fiber wrapped instrument cover center top 5d gloss

Engine:
Grimmspeed DP catted divorced limited
ETS quietback exhaust
AEM cold air intake
Tomei ELH with uppipe
DW65c fuel pump
Accessport
EQ tune stage 2+ tune 300whp 330wtq
Perrin AOS
Intertek intercooler guard

Suspension/brakes:
Stoptech slotted rotors

BC BR coilovers
Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The day I got it!

That CF wrap looks fantastic! You hit all the rights areas to give the hyper blue some perfect accents.

But man, those seats would be a nightmare to get in and out of every day.

Thanks man the wrap was really easy to work with after a quick practice! I never wrapped before my first time and man it's a breeze now!

Seats wise it's not bad! Originally the seats that I got were these

May I ask where you get your CF wrap? They look awesome. When I checked your first post, I thought they are OEM.

lol yeah well it is what it is at this point. got a great deal on the original set posted i got which was

2 wedge brackets
2 bride reps

$600... cant beat that since even rep seats go for $700-800 a pair. I did it to save my hyper blue seats from wearing for value reasons obviously.

I did do my research and honestly from hard evidence, most japanese bride seats even today arent fia certified. Also they seem to to break the same way from reps as originals. This is just beating a dead horse to those oppose to rep seats but again it was the build I was going for! Later on ill go to Corbeau which ultimately is also not FIA certified...

My friend bought them for me but he told me just google/ebay 5d vinyl wrap carbon fiber there should be a couple floating around ebay but it was $60 for 10ft. Remember 5D is what your looking for.

hey it's your car. i just see that list of bricks you dropped on the car and automatically assumed you'd get authentic. good looking car nonetheless.

Lol! Thanks for the response guys! I personally like the cf hood. I end up doing the cf hood replacement sooner just so I can save my factory hood from rock chips etc!

I got some more mods today! Installed after work!
Bayson R CS style lip for $140 cash local pick up at there store!










Also got an OEM generator on also!

Please paint that hood. It looks so out of place and unfinished.

I don't mind the hood. It flows with the other carbon fiber and black bits. I just don't like the chrome Pep Boys mesh grille in the scoop.
