well its not STi with locking diffs however it went much better then i even expected.

i had blizzaks and only got stuck once but that was mid blizzard at 4 am in 4 ft of snow

otherwise as long as you're careful and are aware it didn't give me any problems. because honestly around here the roads are paved in a day or two and driving in poor weather wasn't bad at all.

it wasn't a paint at all. well sort of. you just have to be really onfident because once you make the first cut...there is no going back. the hardest part was extending the wires, becasue the wirres are so thin.

I picked up one here for like $50 plus shipping, doesn't have an interior view though. Watch out for fakes if you get one on eBay.

Also, the Russian dash cam videos are what finally drove me to get one. They are off the chain over there- saw one yesterday where a motorcyclist has a cop clinging to his windshield as he drives through traffic.

Looking good, man! I dig how the relocations came out. Makes me really think about doing something similar to mine, I hate the useless pocket and the start button takes up way too much space.

okay so i can't decide but i dont really like the stock chromy looking LED DRL's.

really want to do them in yellow...thoguhts? or other thoughts. i just want them to be less obviously not flowing with the front end. and they are the only shiny thing left.

Yea I like the idea of doing diff. Other than shiney. I got wrb and all about breast cancer awareness so my wheels are gonna be pink and I'm doing all the front lights with pink tint. I think it will look sick as hell.

Do black. That would be funny. Or something. I'm obviously not being helpful here. I'll be on my way now.

Your car looks great. I think I'm going to have to do some of your mods when I finally have the car.

Just wondering where you got some of your parts. Is the spoiler the Duraflex X-5? Searching for "ducktail" I get a bunch of stuff at ft86.

Also curious where you got the clear signals and armrest.

You might change your mind when you get the car. I said the same thing and started picking my mods before I got the car but now I honestly want to keep it stock for a little while. It handles and drives so well stock.

Not that it will stay stock for ever (or long)

Yeah I know what you mean. It's hard to not make a list of things to do. I'm only focusing on minor things though. I have my fingers crossed that they won't take forever on the BRZ STI and this should hold me over until then. So I *only* want to change the tails/wheels/tires/side markers right away
