I love it. I hate this wing without the riser though. I really don't plan on changing the wing ever. Sometimes I find it online in carbon too. I might grab that sometime.

As far as the skirt, maybe it's a JDM stock. I know my friend never modified it, as for the owner before him, I have no idea. But I'm pretty sure it's all stock.

Honestly Prue, it's a joy. It was a dream car for me too before I got it.
It does suck that it got roughed up, but now my friend is going to hook me up with a body shop. So I guess the good I can take away from it is making that kind of local connection.

De nada! Do you know some Portuguese? Nice!

Sorry to see this damage on the passenger side of the car

If I were living in Japan, I would buy a lot of "dream cars" lol

Please continue to post more nice pictures of your car and the place where you live!

Yea, I know a few words. My family comes from Portugal, so I grew up with it. I'm forgetting a lot recently because I'm studying Japanese so much.

It's almost the cherry blossom season, so look forward to some photos in the coming months. I'm really excited for it.

Been neglecting this for awhile since work's been a bit busy.
Here's an update:
Next week taking her to a body shop to get the door replaced (found a good one on Yahoo Auction) and the rocker hammered out and painted.

Looking to buy some coils next month. Looking at BC Junior Spec, Cusco Street Zero A, and Blitz ZZ-R. Any thoughts? Personally leaning towards BC, but I'd like some opinions. I've heard mixed reviews about Tein, but they're also a consideration (street flex is in my budget).

Some pics;

Is it not so on non-JDM? I've never been in another STi (passenger or otherwise), so I only know JDM.

They're all three points in the US. It is interesting to see how deep they differ. There still is no middle pass through in the US variants of the STi either. Something about keeping the seat rigidity.

On another note. I hate that I could have bought a JDM Bugeye STi in Japan with the difference in money I have spent converting my WRX Bugeye front end to JDM spec.

Got it back today. Great body work.
But the door paint has to be redone. The putty he used is lighter than the primer coat, so some spots showed up lighter. Taking it back on the 19th.

My friend Nishimura behind the door. Body guy on the right.

Well it's definitely going to take more than a few months.
