Let us know how you like the pitch stop brace/mount. I have the Group N trans mount and Whiteline crossmember bushings like you, but I've noticed some more sloppiness and jerking lately compared to when I first had it installed a year and a half ago. I'm thinking maybe some of the other OEM mounts are starting to deteriorate now, and am thinking of doing the pitch stop and motor mounts next.
OEM fit and finish is so worth it. I got it for $330 from the dealer and ya thatís like twice what a knock off costs but money well spent.

So far the pitch mount doesnít feel all that different other than maybe smoother at lower speeds... but weíll see as I get more miles on it. Still waiting to dial in height perfectly so I can get an alignment.

STi lip installed!

The new front ends looks great, so much more aggressive, it's like a new car! Is your black section glossy on the front bumper? Mine's a matte black finish, just wondering?

Well guys, I picked up an Ascent after all BUT I kept my WRX

2020 Ascent Premium 8 passenger, ISM with Black Cloth, pkg 12, cargo tray, and rear bumper protector.

Lots of things on order for the Ascent so it will take priority for the next few weeks

Can't wait to see the wheels on the Ascent. What tires and size are you looking at? I'm also a two Subi car family, my combo is 19 STI Base/18 Outback Limited. Tires on the Outback are ready to be replaced to so I'm starting to look at some wheels too.

I'm usually not a fan of blacking things out, but the chrome on the Ascent would look nice if they were blacked out (especially the front grill). Those wheels are killer.

Is that how close the cars normally are next to each other in the garage? How do you get into the WRX?

Thanks! Iíll take your suggestions into consideration... I was also thinking about blacking out some of the chrome. Weíll see.

Itís funny you ask that about the cars being close. The Ascent was so much bigger/longer than our old Mazda I had to spend a day moving the whole garage around. My tool box and other stuff ended up next to the WRX now. Itís tight but I can get in and I typically drive the Ascent anyways so I leave more room on the left side.

My poor WRX stuffed in the corner of the garage now

Hey guys- way overdue on an update.

We moved late last year so I finally got my 3 car garage and had the floors epoxied

I have also added a few things
- iDoing Headunit
- Dark Grey OEM Shifter Surround
- Recaro Speed (2)
- Recaro Sliders
- Planted Technology Brackets
- Planted Technology Hardware
- OEM Occupancy Sensor
- OEM Occupancy Pad
- Resistors to cancel out Airbag light

The seats feel amazing, and the lower seating position is so much better...

The Ascent also got a new plate

Awesome plates and frame. Those Android headunits look nice but I always get a little wary of them as they're all Chinese and a lot of them seem to crap out after awhile. Hoping yours works well for you though.

Also congrats on the bigger garage

I felt the same way until I looked into it more. I use it for wireless Apple CarPlay and it's flawless. Connects right away and has a seriously beautiful screen. Worth the gamble

Thx!

Hey Jeff, which wireless Apple carplay dongle did you buy? The Atoto? I have an android headunit and the constant hotspot on/off gets really old. Would love to upgrade to a wireless carplay setup like you have if you are happy with it.
