Damn, that all sounds very nice, I'm sure it does literally. How much do those headers add? You get a protune? How many miles you got on her now? It does look better I must say. BBS's will look dope, and those tires will be good from what I hear. I'm still praying for that huge snow fall and all of the salt trucks to breakdown so its only AWD on the roads.
Yea I always wondered about all the hype about the STi. I was searching for over a month, it was between that and 02 S4. But, I just couldn't leave the Suby family. I finally found one down in Arkansas that was just too good a deal to pass up. Although, I already am do for a new clutch and front brakes, but I guess you gotta pay to play.

And yea, give me 2-3 years and I'll give ya a good deal on her and then go after that 2011. (Sedan of course)

Hello- 05 stage 2 STi

Painted the lip a while ago just haven't got around to updated the post. I like them better now, but still not good enough to have them powder coated this color...

Oh yeah! The solid colored wheels look much better than before with the silver lips.

That's by far the least ugly car I've ever seen with red wheels. Seriously, I did mean that as a compliment.

As most of you know, mosc usually dislikes any wheel color other than any shade of silver, so that comment is indeed pretty huge

I'm inclined to agree, though it's not only the fault of the wheels. It looked better in the previous picture.

yes the low is actually coming this weekend...and in desperate need of a scoop, the turbo xs tmic would love to be able to breathe better. And as for the tires, I am going to take the advice mosc gave me...I would have already if I wouldn't have found those for the price I did.

No I wanted them initially, but I found an older guy that wants to trade me his kyb gr2's with tein springs straight up for my oem's. so I figured I would go through with them and if I'm not happy with the ride I will sell them and go with a coilover setup.

Diy

I figured this wasn't worthy of a new thread, so I will just post these on my existing one...I got bored today so I figured I would fab up some covers for the radiator and battery...did not have time to paint them black because of work in the morning...let me know what you think.
