Hmm...What's this? Didn't I just recently read of your aversion to STI badging on non-STIs?

Cool shirt! I want to see where you ordered from.

Chano, I'm so glad to see that you're treating my next nice car as well as you are. Keep it up! :P

I think chano said something about because its not offered here in the USDM market its ok. Like a Bugeye with STi parts and badges. But a Peanut eye WRX with STi badges is rice.

But technically, there is no "Subaru BRZ STi". So is it rice? or is it NICE?

Isn't it supposed to sit below 0? due to negative vacuum or something? I could be wrong just something I heard.

i think they are talking about when the car is OFF. the gauge needle sits under the 0 mark. I thought it had to do with elevation? idk

Lost some weight in the back and went a little wingless.
I'll admit, it's difficult being such a different colour, there is no "trade". It's buy and paint )=

I need to see if this "Japanese XL" shirt will fit my American body. I originally ordered white, but STI said it was discontinued, so I went black instead.

Japanparts.com. Go on the left of the page for advanced setting. Select "Subaru" and your model and be prepared to drool and fap all day. You're welcome.

My car will be honorable for your receipt, Sir!

This exaccry. If there was a 2013 BRZ STI, I wouldn't make mine an "STI". What's the point of making all these nice parts if no one's going to buy them anyways? Plus now that the BRZ STI is a tS trim, I'm aspiring for that.

You guy! I got the gurney flap for the rear spoiler, so that my spoiler can have a spoiler.

Yo dawg we heard you like spoilers. So we put a spoiler on your spoiler, so you can down force when you down force.

Never met an accessory he didn't like... Pink or the initials "STI" are just a bonus

Oh yeah... Wet sanding... Wet sanding... Wet sanding...
