Default 2015 STi with Ohlins R/T and Volk SL's Installed

I am in the process of taking all of our go-fast-goodies off my 2011 STi and transferring them over to my new 2015 that picked up this weekend. This is going to be the mother of all parts swaps...stay tuned for more.

Wanted to share some pics of the Ohlins and Volk's installed. I am planning to lower the car a tiny bit more but I think she looks pretty good so far. Everything fit up without any issues. Once I lower it a little more and complete the BBK install and alignment tomorrow, I will post up some more pics.

Volk Super Laps: 18X10 +40
Tires: Toyo R1R 265/35/18

Looking to trade for someone with stock 2011 OEM wheels and tires plus some cash. If I don't find a trading partner, I will just put the 15's on the 11 when I put the car up for sale.

Cobb 3 inch Catback for the 20011-14 Sedan. For the time-being, we added a 1 inch spacer between the muffler section and the center pipe section to make the exhaust fit the 15. Aside from that, fits perfectly and sounds really good! It's been a while since I've driven a Subaru with just a CB and nothing else.

Negative...all clear.
Do you have a base STI or Limited? Depending on the rims I have a set of 2012 BBS STI rims and tires that I may be willing to trade. Send me a pm.

Do they come with the tires? PM if you are willing to do any kind of trade. I would possibly consider a trade if you are. Let me know.

Welcome...we have been waiting for you :0P

Other than for hatchback reasons, the new WRX is better than the old in leaps and bounds according to review after review.

It doesn't make any sense to me how your setup pokes less than

18x8.75 +33



Defies the laws of humanity! I don't even...

He has coilovers. Lowering the car will give you some negative camber. I'm sure he has front camber plates as well to dial in the camber.

So Did you have to do any modifications to the suspension to make it fit? I've been looking for suspension and don't know who offers them. The last STi I had was an 05 and I know for sure the suspension is way different. Any info would be great.
