2010 OBP WRX Hatch

Here is my car to date, I will update this as I add things to the car. I know, I need to lower it soon.

Current Mods:
SPT CBE
SPT Short Shifter
SPT Boost Gauge
35% Carbon Tint All Around
Cobb Shift Knob
17x8 OZ Ultraleggera - Matte Black
Tail light overlays

Planned mods:
Rallitek Sways+Endlinks
Lowering Springs + Shocks/Struts
Stage 2 (downpipe + tune)
CS Style Lip

I'll get around to a proper photoshoot sometime in the future, but for now, sorry about the cell phone pics and my crappy picture taking.

Thanks! I've had no complaints with the SPT parts. Boost gauge works well and matches the dash. Short shifter shortens the throw but will need rear bushings for a more precise feel. The exhaust is great. My main concern was not being loud and the exhaust fits the bill. It opens up at WOT and is quiet during idle (nice low rumble) and while cruising.

Overlays. The guy that did my tint did mine w/some Laminex, supposedly better than average material.

Is it me or does it appears to have crazy positive camber on the front?

Looking good though, lower it a bit!

Thanks. The crappy picture angles/lighting gives the illusion of the positive camber, it really isn't.

Yeah I know, it looks like a lifted truck for now. Suspension will be next.

Looks good. The only problem with black cars is you see the dust and dirt on the paint pretty easily in person.

Yes, it it one of the best colors when clean and the worse when dirty. AND it seems to be more dirty than it is clean lol.

I seem to be constantly washing it. Worse when you live in rainy Seattle like me too.
