I'll preface by saying that this is merely a thread for me to track progress and post photos along the way.

I've been a member on here for a little while and finally pulled the trigger years later. I come from a Volkswagen background but currently own an array of different stuff.













Delivered on September 1, 2019 at Sheehy Subaru in Springfield, VA.

Option Package 03 (Recaro Seats // Keyless Access w/ Push-Button Start

Thanks to Internet Salesman Sameh Alrayes, Salesman Bill Enkhbold and General Sales Manager Chris Barr. I highly recommend Sheehy Subaru. We drove 120 miles each way for this car. Also want to give a shout out to my fiancee for the support along the way and driving me all over to purchase cars over the years.

I initially wanted a Crystal Black Limited but finally settled on no moonroof and no premium sound. Other than that, Recaros, the wing and Crystal Black were a must. Manager Chris Barr was able to cut me a deal I couldn't refuse.

I will end by saying I love cars and I love photography. This will be a very modest commuter car that I don't plan on doing a ton to.

Thanks man, appreciate it! I wanted one back in 07-08; it was between the Evo X, STi and R32.

Finally decided to do it years later. Always loved them.

Did some simple cosmetic stuff today.





I actually ordered the window visors and vortex generator before I even purchased the car.







Still sticking to cosmetic stuff for a long time. No ambition to modify anything else for now.

The R32's are cool and fast, my buddy has one and it has earned my respect. Glad you made a fitting choice in the end, plus you can't beat the rumble IMO.

Thank you, sir! Both are definitely cool cars and unique in their own ways.

That's classic! LOL. Small world!

Climate control rings:



JDM armrest extension:



Door striker covers:





JDM coin pocket:



I installed the correct fuse layout sticker on the back. Was hoping my EZ Pass fit in there, but the pocket is too small.

Nice build & great photography!

Where did you purchase the intercooler cover from? It looks like AVT cover, but I'm not finding that for sale on ebay anymore.

Thank you, sir.

And you’re good.. it is the AVT cover! He posts them every once in a while on eBay. When this popped up, I snagged it right away. I just checked and none are listed right now.

I wanted to keep it OEM but also wanted some weight added to the notchy shifter so I went with this:









Overall, I like it. Removed some of the 'notchiness' and still flows with the interior. I personally like the look of the red one better but the new one feels better. It's a bit smaller and definitely a noticeable weight difference.

When I was researching, you'd never guess it but the red knob also has some weight behind it. I think it was 199g vs 277g or something minor.

Albeit pricey, I have to say that, in my humble opinion at least, the tweeters really livened up the sound. Before I installed them I really listened to the audio and it seemed to me that a lot of the sound came directly from the tweeters.
