This might be a stupid question, but what grade of gas does the BRZ require?

~30K gets you near LS3 C6 category as well. I'd love to pick up another and DD it, but I think it would be a wee bit scary with snow on the ground.

I found 2- 2005 Forester XT's within 150 miles of here. I hope they are still available in a few weeks..

One Sedona red pearl and one white. Both have less than 80K miles.

Ha ha. You could always bring it by the house when I help Brandon install some parts. Maybe I will arrange a small install meet.

Considering that the car has 120k on it and it also needs wheel bearings I don't think I will be tackling it myself. I

Front lip problem solved. I had originally wanted the STi lip , but decided to skimp on it a bit to save $200. The JNA lip was on sale from $200 to $119 but they wanted $55 shipping. WTF????

I sent them an email about their shipping and they got back to me instantly and offered to waive all shipping. Wow, hard to believe!

Lip on the way!

Nice! Shipping is usually alot because of the size of the box, not because of the weight. I was lucky and got free shipping with mine.

Today was my first day golfing and I had a good time. I'm a little bit sore from the technique but I want to do it again.

Kai see you tonight at the movies

Before I decide on a brand (possibly Polk Audio db651) I have to come to a decision on these items:

1. Am I gonna break down in the future and get a sub?

2. Should I bother sound deadening the doors?

I hate adding weight to my car. Oh well, now that I have the new headunit, the OEM speakers just are not getting it done for me.

I have been really good about deleting weight when upgrading parts. It probably wont matter anyway.

Eh it's not too bad since you have replacement trailing arms. But the lateral link bushings could cause an issue. Why didn't you upgrade to adjustable links?
