Didn't do anything to it, but my Grimmspeed TMIC and charge pipe arrived yesterday. Going to wash her tomorrow. Parts + tune coming next month.

Upgraded all of the speakers in the 18 WRX, installed a 12" subwoofer and amplifier, and ordered the Invidia R400 Titanium Tip Exhaust.

Took it to price the install of Sti trunk spoiler and ceramic tint installation. Bought vortex generator and Invidia R400 exhaust arrived. Depending on weather, will install exhaust and vortex generator within next couple of days.

Default Always do research

Subie was drifting to left, took it to a car franchise mechanic and they diagnosed it with two front control arm bushings cracked and one rear strut leaking. Quoted me a ridiculous $1400 for control arms to include labor. Told them Id think about it and left the hell out of there.

Did research online, found cheaper parts, and made appointment to go to a private mechanic for a second opinion. Car is over 100,000 miles so ordered new control arms anyway.

Default Changed my wheels.

Took the wheels from my 98 Legacy GT and put them on my 98 Impreza L, replacing the 15 inch steelies and God awful hubcaps with the 16 inch factory mags made me feel like I almost had a WRX....... almost.

Finally installed my group buy Crawford AOS.

It was way too cold in the garage to undertake that project, what a PITA.

Installed an ETS Intake and Air-box, flashed to COBB Stage 1+ ETS 91. Sounds crazy good, pulls nicely throughout the RPM's.

Not today, but last time home i finally got around to adding a bunch of Cusco goodies, Eibach sway bars, coilovers, some superpro bushings, and managed to strip out the piece of junk McGard wheel lock key, thankfully got a new key ordered the next day and changed all the lugs out for spline drive so I don't have to worry about it again.

Oh, and changed out all the bulbs to led to match the factory led headlights. And the rear to tail to turn. Can't make my mind up on whether I want to pull the headlights and install c-lights now.

swore at it profusely; it's 12 years old and things are failing; but I'm such a cheap SOB that I will fix it and swear at it every weekend while repairing it until something comes on the market I'm willing to buy.

Don't give up on it man! My drag truck makes me want to drown it in a can of gas and a pile of matches some days, but those 8 second passes make it all worth it when she's working right!

The real struggle is that it's my daily and I need it to function M-F to get me to work, my son to and from daycare, and be the weekend trip wagon when we go on a distance trip.

Were it purely a toy I'd give it a much bigger pass, but it's a daily driver and needs to function daily.

swore at it some more today, will be underneath it tonight; livid.
