Big thanks to JPM Coachworks, check out what I just installed!




Looks pretty good for my first time!

Thanks,

Looks like FRS climate controls.. Unless I missed that somewhere in your build.

We got the base model instead of a fully loaded, so no fancy climate control for our BRZ.

I THINK I'm going to get leather boots. I like leather shift knobs and the juxtaposition of a leather knob and Alcantara boot bothers me for some reason. Same thing with the parking brake. I did ask JPM if they'd rewrap the brake handle for a fee and they said that they would. I just feel weird getting rid of ALL the leather.

THANK you. That Alcantara looks nice, but I'm opting for leather, baby!

OE can buy the leather STI shift knob to compliment the leather madness.

Leather from JPM is amazing! So nice and soft. Will be a huge improvement to the stock pleather haha

You're starting to make me sound weird.

Ugh, I can't stand the feel of the vinyl they used. Touch the front of the head rest then the vinyl back...GROSS.

My apologies, OE. I'll stop... after you get your leather-clad knob!

Just got these.. Hot off the press from the in-house RSD media department!


First up we have the beautiful Carbign Craft Alternator Cover



This was a super easy install, took about all of 5 minutes and using normal hand tools using the OEM hardware. Plus, just look how gorgeous that looks in the engine bay. Rick recommended for sure!!



Next on the list are the APR Carbon Fiber Brake Ducts





Now these were a bit more involved to install, you remove the 2 under panels located below the stock "ducts", remove the 2 10mm nuts that go to the DRL's, pop out the factory units, pop these bad boys in, bolt it all back up and you are good to go! Please note, we did add some washers on the backside of the DRL studs to help give a more secure mount.
I really like these as it just gives the front of the car so much more character, granted we do not have any hoses going to our brakes, but that could be done easily in the future if need be. These are more than just for good looks!

You may also notice those beautiful Lamin-X headlight covers, now I did not install these so I cannot comment to much on the install. But just make sure to do it when it is warm out, or have a heat gun ready, also plenty of patience is key with any protective film. Don't they look amazing though? A bit of GT300 BRZ style right there!



Oh what shall we do next? I know! How about some APR Carbon Fiber rocker panel extensions.





Now this is what I am talking about, finally adding some aggression to the timid lil' Albino Rhino. In regards to the install, I do get nervous any time I hear the word "drill", I won't lie. Drill... On a brand new car?! Yep, but with APR's crystal clear instructions and the fact that these fit like an OEM piece, even I could not mess this up haha. Have a buddy help you with these, but if you have that, these are a breeze to install. Very satisfying as well once you are all done and you can sit back and see the way these have transformed the side of your car. So much better!!!!



Leaving my favorite for last, I present to you the APR Carbon Fiber rear bumper skirts.






Of course my favorite part was also the most timely for me to install. Now don't get me wrong, you will look at it and think, "pfft this will be easy, I mean you use the OEM holes and it just bolts right up!" All of that is true, but Subayota has blessed this area on the car with virtually no working space. Get your 1/4 10mm sockets and extension, and think small as you have to squeeze your hands in very tight spaces to gain access to the bolts. Even if you are blessed (cursed?) with small hands like me, it is still a tight squeeze. Even after all of the cursing...err I mean "nice words", I was absolutely blown away to see how amazing these made the rear of the car look, even the picture above does not do it justice! Also, a keen eye will notice something else new in this picture, and we will touch on that at a later date.


Thanks so much guys and please, let us know what you think! We always love to hear feedback! Also a big thanks to APR for making these beautiful carbon fiber products!

Mighty impressive! I hope you're enjoying that Q300 exhaust.

I would love a shot that shows the driver front, side and rear skirt. I wasn't aware there was a side skirt until you posted here, I only saw the rear and brake ducts.

Reading this thread did NOT help me in any way in regards to fighting the urge to trade my WRX on a BRZ.

Must. Wait. One. More. YEAR!

Beautiful BRZ, love the direction it's going.

HAHA nice! Glad I could be of some..err. help?

And it would be a tough choice between a WRX or BRZ, the WRX fulfills the part of my life that craves the feeling of boost, but with the BRZ being such a blast to drive it is a hard choice. I have an STi right now, but I would not hesitate to switch over to the BRZ if Subaru offered an STi version of it with a bit more power. Keeping my fingers crossed for that one, but I figure it is a few years out

Thanks,
Rick

TEIN Coilovers installed! But as you can tell by the ice on the front bumper its freezing cold! Once it warms up a little bit outside/no snow/no ice(black ice)/temps go over freezing we will take the car out for a test drive and do a full review

Pop POP! Nice video, sirs. Thanks for the update. That Tein coilover kit looks like a substantial drop. Are you worried about rubbing at all with your current wheel set up?

When setting up the suspension Rick made sure that the tires did not contact the chassis when the suspension is moving.
