Soon I'll be looking for 08-14 BBS' wheels. I think they look damn good on MrRich's car, should be a good set of winters.

Just wanted to say thanks to Element Automotive for the awesome work they did in swapping my speakers today! I always love coming to them for all my car questions and needs. I only want to make more money so I can make up more excuses to spend more money with them!

I always appreciate that they take so many things into consideration with every upgrade and alternation to my vehicles. They go above and beyond just doing the basic things you ask for, always erring on the side of safety first.

Thanks guys!

Don't lie. It's all about the simulator.

Yes, I cherish the moments I get to crash over and over again while you laugh at me. There was slight improvement today, though! Crashed about 5% less often!

Dropped the car off to CCA Motorsports this morning.

Contacted Rally Armour this morning and got a prompt response, unfortunately, not the news I wanted...

Thank you for your inquiry. Mud flaps for the 2015 WRX/STI mud flaps are currently in the early stages of development. Though we do not have a firm ETA on the launch date, we can update you periodically on our progress over the course of the coming weeks. We will add you to our contact list. Do let us know if you have any further questions.

Ugh, at least the state is brushing the roads early.

Yeah, you won't need the RA's until late Summer, early Fall. You're good.

Or even just a Subaru! I kinda want RA's and HS's, but... just makes the BRZ look like it's trying too hard. haha "Hey guise! I haz tones and flaps, too! Can I ralliez wit u?!"

After seeing my car with the flaps on, just flailing in the wind, AND after I had one tear off, I just kinda got over them as far as "must-have". I wanted the FR-S mudguards, but now I can't with the aero kit.

Rich, do you even want Supertones?

The nice part with the new 2015, is the discreet bumper design. I'm game for putting the super tones on regardless because I like using them. And yes, I'm THAT ***hat on the road that if you're in the lane next to me, and I think you're even swerving within the lane, I'll honk. The second I see a turn signal and I'm coming up and/or already next to them and you don't see me; I lay down on that horn. I put a set on the wife's Juke and she loves them also. She still honks at people just to show it off.
The rally armours were my priority since I've never had a car with painted side skirts...

Washed the exterior by hand for the first time since last fall. Cleaned out the interior. Also programmed my old 08 Forester FOB for the LGT. No more having to carry around a large remote starter FOB during the summers.

Picked the car up from CCA Motorsports yesterday after completing the tint work. Very impressed by the work and looking forward to being able to put the windows down again. My only complaint was I asked them not to wash the car afterwards as I had done it the day before and they did anyway ( which, it turned out it go dirtier than before I gave it to them ) and when they completed the tint work, all the door panels had shoe marks and the carpet looks like it was kicked around in dust storm. Guess this weekend will be cleaning the interior back to showroom status. That aside, definitely impressed with the product! The staff are extremely friendly as well!

Mavrik does good work! haha Actually I was reversing in really deep snow and it got pulled under my tire.

Rich, glad CCA hooked you up! They're a busy group, but they're always willing to take time to be courteous and polite to ensure your overall experience is top-notch. I heart those men. :wub:

As far as craftsmanship goes, definitely see where their reputation comes from. They offered me a pretty smoking deal on clear armor as well. I might as well take advantage of it at this point before they change their minds...

Do it! My car's front is dinged up pretty bad, but I'm confident it would look almost brand new if I just replaced the clear armor. I'm planning to do so this Fall. They say my car is a testament to the clear armor's durability. I think everyone should have it. If people have chips already, I recommend Dr. Colorchip to fill it in first, then clear armor over it.

Got the Sti stock muffler installed on the 2.5i. A bit deeper note, just what I wanted. Thanks ridestreet84 for the part.
