The F1 style has the ability to flash when you brake rather than having a solid illumination.

I have the JDM OEM version installed on my STI:

Many moons ago I adapted a fog light to improve reverse lighting in dark areas, so there's a chance I might actually do this.

Subie Bros sells the on off switch for $5.

Well after 7 months of ownership. Iíve decided to keep my 19 STI. I just bought a new set of wheels and stage 2 Cobb kit. The reason I was going to trade the car in the first place is that it needed more HP in my mind to make it more fun. Also in that same thought cars I was looking at with more HP are having all kind of engine issues and values of them are coming down. My car is not a daily driver for more of a toy and something fun for me to work on as I have time. I do really like small sports cars and the STI is a good value for the money.

Paid $4.49 per gallon for 91 octane in the lovely state of California

I really need to start saving for a flex fuel conversion for my STI since E85 is ~$1 cheaper per gallon.

I have had a few buddies that had experience with them and I also purchased a short block through them for a customers 09 wrx last year, they definitely do great work as far as I have seen and if I ever decided to go stage 2 or 3 would be using them for pro tune also.

Just dropped her off at a reputable, local Subaru motorsports shop to commence with the intake, exhaust, egr, aos, and tune work that I've been planning for a few months now. Can't wait!

I can't say enough good things about Nameless... I literally emailed them asking if they had any 4" mufflers with 4" double walled tips in stock. Within five minutes they confirmed they did. I placed the order right after and they provided tracking within minutes.

The mufflers sound great. You can tell the exhaust is not stock anymore, but it's not overbearing. Nice, bassy rumble with no drone at all. Sounds great and the throttle response is much more crisp. Feels like the car isn't restricted anymore. Almost like you gave someone oxygen or took a mask off while you were working out.

The huge tips set it off. Install was too easy. I did it with my car parked between two cars in the driveway. The only reason I even lifted one side of the car was to give myself more room since I am a big dude.

The TMPS light came on today. No big deal, it's been a little cooler lately and they were all down a bit.

What did catch my eye was that with the TPMS lamp lit, turning off VDC then illuminated a lamp next to the 'A' lamp for the tripmeter which showed a lower case 'i'.

So I got out my little 12v pump and started bringing all of the pressures back up. As I was filling the fourth tire, both lamps went out, which was what I was expecting.

Does anybody know what that 'i' lamp indicates? I couldn't find anything in the owner manual, though I did not read every single word in Section 3. I'm guessing it stands for 'information', but that really doesn't tell me very much since I already know about the status of the TPMS.

How bout you all?
I took the sparkplugs off on my 05' sti, and did a compression test, the pressure was pretty good, but I have a misfire I'm working out.
