DAMN! I **** you not that is the same choice I had made for my car after seeing it at the LA Auto Show in December. Excellent decision, can't wait to see it but now I must find something new because lets face it, I can't compete with the beast.

You really should replace all your speakers. with . I can probably help you make that decision. I'm a Copywriter/Marketing editor at my work. This was one of the best SQ system I've ever heard!

Focal UTOPIA BE KIT N7 /ACTIVE for the front with a Matts Audio Ultimate SQ HIFI amplifier


Focal Utopia Be Kit N6 /Active for the rear and a Matts Audio SQ Series SQ4100 amp.


And for the subs two Focal P33 V2 13" with a Matts Audio M1000.1D mono block amp

There will be plenty along with a video I have been working on for the entire time the car has been down. I am looking forward to it!

It really is insane how deep this color is. It is the best looking silver I have ever seen.

You painting the lip & skirts?
I will be glossing those when they come in to accent the matte. Should be a killer setup.

Wing, lip and side skirts. They are backordered right now and will go on the car once they get here.

I actually picked the color off of the press pictures. I hadn't seen it in person at all. It is coming out so much better than even the press pictures looked. It really is a special color.

Those are killer speakers but the setup I have put together is going to sound even better. I am a true audio geek at heart.

Yesterday before masking started. It really is amazing how thin the paint is on our cars. No wonder it flakes off if you even look at it wrong.

I've seen it at the Detroit auto show the past few years, it looks very deep. So what kind of if any top coat goes on that?

Have you ever seen a Balloon White Aventador? That is the top coat we are using.

I assume this paint will be much more durable than the OEM Subaru crap?

Yeah it's unbelievably pretty in person. One of the best paints I've seen, only the frosted BMW bronze/brown and Land Rover's Autobiography midnight pearl blue came close to stealing the show.

Can't wait to hear your impressions of the new midbasses. I've considered swapping mine out for some too. Not sure of the depth though. Do you have more than a 3/4" thick spacer?

How do you like your RCE swaybars? I have tarmac 2's on 400lb f/r as well and am looking at a good swaybar combo. What are your sways and coils set as?

How well does the jbl sound with a three way? I put one in a friends car and it was so quick and sounded good from every seat we tuned it to! Doing active on my p99 took forever and it only sounds good from the drivers seat.

I think that color is going to look so good with the curves of the car.
Not surprised about how classy and clean but still unique it is based on the rest of this build.

If I was in a position to paint my car, I'd never be able to choose. Were you always planning on a silver? (The lambo balloon white would've been spectacular as well)

I love the RCE sways. They went on the car about 2 weeks after I bought it. I am running 400 f/r too but I might up to 500 in the rear.

The JBL sounds great. I really just wanted the ability to tinker with a laptop which is the only reason for the switch.

We were sitting around the shop yesterday thinking the same thing. The front fenders and the line that runs down the body is really going to pop. I was always planning on silver and a matte version of it. Before the wreck, I was actually looking at doing a matte silver vinyl that Evasive Motorsports used on their FR-S. When the wreck happened...it went to painting instead of wrapping.

Do you feel like the 400 isnt enough in the rear? I kind of do. i set everything to the suggested street setting.

I had a audison bitone before the p99. I actually got tired of having to bring out the laptop to tune.

I'd love to see your car in person to check out every aspect of the car. I'd be happy with just a respray of the oem color with more durable paint.
If you don't mind, could you PM me what the paint job cost?

Awesome car. My apologies if this has been said, but did you have to roll your fenders/any other body work to fit the 18x9.5 11R's without rubbing?

I have the settings maxed out in the rear so I would really like to put on 500's and have the settings for rebound and damping more towards the middle.

I can give you a close figure later today. It gets confusing in my case because I am paying the extra over what his insurance paid.

You just need to roll the rears.
