Nice. GL with the rest of your project!

I should get a set of swaybars and endlinks for my WRX. The factory bar is a bit soft for me at higher speeds.

Replaced fuel injectors on the hawkeye, had some minor misfires after refueling sometimes. Changed fuel filter and still continued but so far haven't had any misfires since.

Dang.. where was I? LOL

Yeah, at least not bird crap I suppose. Can't wait to finish up my garage project so that I can park my WRX inside.

Woo~ nice. Would that get pretty hot in the summer/cold in the winter? I like that you changed the e-brake button too to match.

For me, cleaned up the WRX's inner glass when I got home after work.

Completely ruined my paint on the rear doors and put rock chips all over my rims! Still 100% worth it bombing through corn fields and dirt roads against my buddies Jeep. For months he talked about how Subaru is a fake off road car. didn't say much after I was doing 80 mph circles around him sideways.

Installed this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32857771015.html (CHSKY Auto Car Power Window Roll up Closer For Subaru Impreza 2009-2012 Car Alarm Systems DC 12V Remotely Close Window Closer)

Automatically rolls up the windows when you lock the car, lets you open the windows a crack or fully using the key fob, and makes all four window buttons in the driver's door have "auto" functionality. Pretty nifty for ~$60.

Install was harder than I was expecting since it's not just plug & play like the product page implies. It came with no instructions and there were three loose wire ends labeled in Chinese. After a bit of detective work I figured it out though. I might create a thread with instructions if there's interest.

I did the same while my son was doing my WRX's oil change a few weeks ago.

For me saw some idiot crash into another car about 20yards behind me. I'm so glad no debris flew and hit my WRX as it was a pretty significant accident.

I would've been very pissed.

Got any pics of the buildup? My 2015 WRX has an identical amount of miles on it and I'm curious how bad the buildup on my engine is, but I haven't had a chance to pull the intake to check it out. I realize the amount of buildup won't be identical, but it might give me a rough estimate.

Nobody asked but I did it anyways while I was fresh in my mind:

I tried to get Mirrorlink working on my STI and failed. Learning point: Mirrorlink is in the car, but supposedly is non-operable.
