Thats what they say. But I have replaced bulkheads with mortars falling off in the distance, I have spent 16 months (on one occasion, 15 months on another) in a war zone. All by choice, or volunteering I understand. Filing papers and making phone calls would be a welcomed change of pace for me.

I sparked OT conversation. That's my fault...but, it was funny.

It happens, I aint mad at you. If you look back through the thread it gets off topic a few times. Thats one reason I put my new stuff up in here.

Just an update to the car. Finally getting to order some more "performance" parts. Just ordered the Cobb front and rear sway bars. Now I pretty much have everything from Cobb I want

Well some more sadness to my build. Not really just a minor set back. I guess I wont be running the Cobb bars after all. The place I order from, after charging me, sent me an email saying they dont have them anymore. Still waiting to get money back from them so I can order up some Rallitek bars, mounts, and enlinks. I have spent the last 2 hours calling and searching for anyone that would have the bars still, but to no luck. Guess thats what I get for waiting so long.

Cobb has cut a lot of their products for the WRXs... The place I go to doesn't even have the cat back system anymore, and it's not even on COBBs website... Add that to the fact that they're moving out of Salt Lake City (30 miles from me) and now I'm screwed on tuning possibilities too.

They're starting to tick me off.

I better buy my downpipe before they stop making that too.

I would I were you Chris. I got so desperate I called my tuner Tim Bailey, who works with/for Cobb now. He said they are moving to Texas and should be re-opening and re-making some of the parts again. I honestly dont feel like waiting that long, and dont want to get my hopes again/anymore.

Reliable? As in keep making the parts that started? Or what, just some people might get the wrong idea about a blanket statement like that.

Thanks for the link. But finding the endlinks isnt the issue. It was finding both the front and rear sway bars. I have thus given up and will eithe rbe running Rallitek or Hotchkis sways/endlinks.

Ok not really an update on the car (still working on it), but an opinion on the car. I already have a few small things picked out for when i get back (hood dampers, and probably the Zerosports splitter). But Im now getting tired of my car looking so "plain". I like the sleeper look, but came across this when searching around:
CVR Motorsports - Subaru :: WRX STI :: 2006-2007 :: Exterior :: Lip Spoilers & Canards :: Bottom Lines Type-2 Carbon Front Lip
CVR Motorsports - Subaru :: WRX STI :: 2004-2005 :: Exterior :: Lip Spoilers & Canards :: Bottom Lines Carbon Sideskirt Set
CVR Motorsports - Subaru :: WRX STI :: 2004-2005 :: Exterior :: Lip Spoilers & Canards :: Bottom Lines Carbon Rear Caps
Just wondering if anyone knew someone running them or seen them in person. I think it would set the car off just enough, but not enough to draw too much attention.
