This will be a build thread for my 2017 WRX. Some of you know already but for the rest I drove a 2013 WRX for 4 years, When I traded it in I had the suspension completely rebuilt, Suspension bushings and braces, Feal coilovers, Stainless brake lines, master cylinder brace, Catted downpipe, Short ram intake with intake box, Engine and trans mounts, a few thermal managment add ons and a Stage 2 E-tune from Eric @ Torqued Performance.
I traded the car in because my daily commute is 36 miles on one of the worst freeways in the united states. The 405 freeway has an average speed of 11 miles per hour and it is wash boarded more than overalls in Alabama. The harshness of the 2013 suspension with all my added stiffness was jarring. I put up with the ride for 6 months day in and day out and I finally realized there is another way. I took a 2016 for a spin and found it to be quiet, quick and comfortable. Nice low RPM spool and it could hang out around 10 mph in 1st without bucking. I was sold, so I traded in my 2013 and grabbed a 2017 from my trusted dealership and Im never looking back.
This thread will contain updates that dont warrant their own write up, Small stuff or non-performance stuff where an instructional wall of text and photos wouldn't benefit anyone. Not that it stops me from photographing every part of the process but some things dont need to be explained.
To get this thread started heres a few photos.
