A couple updates:
Test fit of ISC's adapter/spacers. They are BEAUTIFULLY made..really top notch quality and awesome customer service.
I purchased the 25mm version so I would have no issues with the stock studs needing clearance for most wheels.
15mm

25mm


Link to the spacers: http://iscsuspension-na.com/store/#!...=0&sort=normal

Nice hubcentric fit



Test fit success!




New rims:



Also sold the 4.3" Forester Headunit and went Aftermarket.

So far so good on the headunit. Kenwood's menus are a little bit of a pain, but once setup it should be good. Sound quality is improved for sure.

YES, I was on the .org
This was my car


I remember your name and after some quick research, remember your sig!

Looking good buddy! Love the headunit. I'm curious to hear the difference in sound quality. Also playing around with the controls and seeing how easy the interface is.

Kenwood's interface is a little confusing at first, mostly because there are so many options. I haven't spent enough time with it yet, but the navigation is cake like any garmin, radio use is easy. I especially like the volume knob over an individual button for up / down.

Following SVXDC's site www.ae64.com , I was able to get the steering wheel controls working all automatically programmed with his wiring harness and the AXXESS steering wheel controller. Only the pick up phone button did not get automatically programmed, but I will try to manually program that later when I'm not too lazy.

Haha, honestly I am just looking for a simple to use Navi and something with better sound to play my ipod/iphone through. I don't need all the other fancy stuff these aftermarket HU's offer. I was happy with my Dice in the M3 and everyone else hated it haha.

Let me know how the spacers work out. I debate getting those, but i heard too many horror stories with the weak 5x100 wheel bearings.

Here are some pics...I'm going to get a roll today. The hardware + quality of the spacer are excellent. From what I've read, it really won't do too much to the wheel bearings.

A couple of updates since april...
Current Mileage: 13,600
New Windshield.
Had a small shiner behind the inspection sticker and never noticed it. One day it decided to expand about a foot long.


Friend Borrowed my car for a bike tour...It became the official Bike Support Vehicle lol


Rolling shot with the new wheels. STI BBS in gunmetal this time.


Another shot of the rims with my funny looking dog


Washed both cars. What ScoobyFreak86's garage would look like if he kept his M3


Went 550 miles to pick up a new road bike...
No roofrack, under 70 mph.


test fit of SMY cluster...it fits :P


defi's in...need to figure out how people are making them stay in the pod.

Nice job with the STi wheels. I'm sad you sold the grids. I'm looking to buy grids soon. Are you going to lower the car to get rid of the ugly wheel gaps? Also you're going to love your car so much more after TP Stage 2 map . I've been running that map for about a week now with my Cobb DP and there is a big improvement in powerband. You should install that DP soon ;P

:megashifty: I see you still have my side gills in. BTW, I have some invisbulbs left over for the corner lights if you want them.


Do you have those rubberbands? I believe thats what goes around the gauges and holds them into the pods. Or use some double sided 3M tape.

haha soon...when I have the time to go to my buddy's shop to throw it on.
How much improvement over TP stage 1? Cause it really is more than enough right now.

haha yes, still have them. I kind like the amber, but I'd be down to give it a shot.

I didn't get those rubber bands, but I think it'll work to make them snug.

Small update, big results.

After installing eibach sway bars for my buddy Mark with the same car (12 wrx hatch) and then DRIVING IT, I knew this was a mod that I'd eventually NEED to do. I've recommended a couple people already these bars as they are a great deal and work very well. Well...finally put the money where my mouth is and I do not regret it at all.

Next update will be the installation of the Gauges and an oil change at 15000 miles (couple hundred left to go). I'll be using a Greddy Sandwich adapter to get the temps for the Oil temp gauge.

At 15,000 miles, I did my oil change and also installed my Boost/Oil Temp Gauges.
I chose this time to do it because I was going to use the Greddy Oil Filter Sandwich adapter. Its a very nice piece and everything is nice and secure, no leaks. For oil temp, I think this is the best place to get the reading.
Installed


At 16300 miles it was time to do the following:
Finally put on the downpipe! Flashed to Torqued Performance Stage 2 Map.
I feel more midrange power I guess due to the quicker turbo spool from the Downpipe. It feels nice Also I get more turbo noise when it's at full tilt at 20psi.
Install definitely was much easier on a lift. Glad I had access to one. The only complication we ran into was one of the top Turbo/Dp bolts was being extremely stubborn and was seized. Even with multiple applications of pb blaster, it wouldn't break loose properly. Finally we just decided to break it and get a new bolt later. I'll have to go to the Subaru Dealership later today I also used the Grimmspeed Double thick gaskets purchased from JSCSpeed in PA. For us Tri-state guys, They really are the quickest way to get parts as they are only 1 day away. Great vendors!



20psi


Also did a small lighting upgrade. Installed LED turnsignals with the Fastwrx led light module. Install was easy as long as you could find the turnsignal module. A Picture would have helped with the install instead of them telling you to listen for the relay.
