I purchased a pretty clean wrx back in June. Car was previously owned by the service manager of the local subaru dealership in town. Car was originally purchased in Billings, Montana. Spent 80,000 miles there and then came to Washington. I have all the maintenance records for the car. Even have the original window sticker. Have the original bill of sale. When I got it the service manager owner had done some modifications to the car, all within the last 20k miles. When I got it, the following mods were done:

-New OEM Short block/ heads resurfaced/ new gaskets completed at 100k miles by Subaru (over 4500$ in receipts)
-BC Racing Coilovers with camber adjustment
-2015 WRX Performance package wheels.
-Blouch TD05H-16G-XT Turbocharger
-Indivia Dump pipe/ mid pipe
-SPT Axleback exhaust
-Cobb turbo heat shield
-SPT Intake
-pioneer touchscreen deck, pioneer amp, pioneer 10" subwoofer

That's all I can remember right now. I have since done some more modifications and will post some pictures.
Modifications I have done:
-sti fog covers
-sti splitters
-sti hazard light button
-New OEM cluster lens
-Cobb adjustable short shifter
-Cobb front and rear shifter bushings
-17" 8"wide rpf1s in silver (raised suspension)
-Hella super tones painted white with Perrin bracket from my 98 forester (RIP)
-oem subaru floor mats
- v limited rep lip (RIP)
- 2006-07 sti trunk w/ sti wing
- headlight restoration
- full paint correction and hydrophobic ceramic coating applied professionally
- Sti strut bar front
- Gorrilla Off-road company mudflaps on all for corners
- Ralli-direct OEM style shift knob w/ red stitching

As I bought the car. First picture.


More pictures of the progression:



More pictures of how it was before I did anything:



Fog covers:



Then I got a whole sti trunk setup:



Mudflaps were the first mod I did, here you can see the lip and the sti spats:



Girlfriend sleeping:



Generic Snapchat picture, right before paint correction and wheels:



Rpf1s:






I need to pull my camera out and shoot this car.

Out in the PNW:







Before paint correction:



So much forest fires this year that ash fell from the sky:



Car before height adjustment and wheels:



And after adjusting height:



I haven't done that yet. Let me know if you guys like the car! It's one of the cleanest wrxs I've seen in awhile IMO. My whole style is light modifications that would appear OEM style to the untrained eye. Like keeping the shifter same style but weighted and adjustable short shifter to keep the oem height.

Looks great. Personally I prefer those STI wheels over the RPF1's though.

I like the wheels but I don't like black wheels on cars with dark paint. I think it would look great on a white car

Oem styled with red stitching. Nothing like new leather to make a car feel fresh.

OG owner sent me this picture of the car after the motor blew at 99k miles due to bad decisions by the mechanics who worked on it. He was heart broken and said he’d love to see the car someday so that might be kinda cool to set up.

I took it to a detailer to have them correct the paint and do a ceramic coating on it, it looks amazing for 12 year old paint

Im sure it will continue to evolve. I might get a different axle back. Gonna do some vinyl on the interior cuz the plastics are a little scratched and the interior is so mint I want to keep it nice. Im sure as trends come alone ill want to mod it accordingly. Nothing immediately. maybe an apple double din radio setup for a more oem look.

I like things looking oem but when theyre improved
