Looks nice! How do you like the 6 speed so far? What ratios did you end up going with? Is it a newer model tranny? And what diff controller?

No reason to go into anything but the current gen ratios... New as new can get without really being new. lol. I will not be doing DCCD control. No true need when this is a weekend/fun car. Purely exploring the options for the center and rear diff. Ill take the summer to get a feel of what I want.

tc105N are some of my all time favorite wheels. The opportunity to get a set in gunmetal became the perfect time to also get the new Direzza ZIIs I wanted. The contrast of the gunmetal and no concavity, and overall specs make the car look more aggressive to me. The 2lb weight per wheel is also a plus.

There will probably be a mixed response of whats wheels 'looked' better. Never planned to get rid of the Xtreme setup, was going to switch based on mood, lol. Things happen, and in this instance it was an excellent choice to get those to on the

Some where close to equal. Hah. Probably ~24.8" front and 25.1" rear, using tire diameter to guess.

Your car is PERFECT! But I'm also a bias SWP 2011 WRX owner.

How is your roof vinyl holding up to scratches for washing, road debris, etc???

The vinyl does well. Its not exposed to daily driving, but I do make sure to wash very lightly with plenty of lather. It will swirl/mark eventually. A gloss black paint is still the best option.

First page has shots of anything worth looking at. There are a few nice additions very soon, but here are more that are somewhat recent:

Thanks Robb. We'll keep raising those standards, and that's the ultimate help.

tc105Ns have been my some of my favorites. They are somewhat common wheels, no reason not to ever consider them. When I saw the available specs, gunmetal color, I had to own them. Style and function... pluses.

The Weds gave me a nice reason to try the new ZIIs. They are definitely a wide 265. I do not have thorough driving feedback for you. Weather has been 45 or less, and not too many miles. Steering response, based on a few drives, will be noticeably better. Of course all the other aspects will be tested. Ill have some detailed feedback after a good road course day.

The motor is on break in too. That seems to be a forgotten aspect of the car. Tuning to be done, power to be made... then the ZIIs, and entire car will get to show their capabilities.

Bought the door moldings after I saw it on your car...I was very hesitant on getting them.
Thanks for the inspiration!

AV panel. The stock unit is nothing appealing. With the panel I'll be able to clean up the interior with a flat unit/screen.

Aside from the head unit, one other convenience is being added and the rest of the interior should be left alone. The focus will be on seating/ function and safety.

Similar items are left for the drivetrain/powertrain. Cooling/efficiency where needed, and other minor preference/ performance related items are all that may be left to address. Ill get it all completely dialed in soon enough.

I've had plans to remove mine. They do blend well, I just do not need them. They interrupt the smooth door panels a bit.
