    Are you able to open your rear hatch with this on? I have a Thule Evolution box from when we had our Jeep, and it looks about the size of this, but I was thinking it was too big. Your giving me some kinda hope!

    Yes i can still open the hatch. However, not 100% open. More like 90% open. The hatch spoiler hits the back of the box. I padded it with bubble tape.

    How did the car perform on that drive? the drive to oyster farm with this car is what I think about day in and day out once my car is here~! Plan to do one trip stock and another with customer tuned and sways installed.

    Really well, considering the car is 100% stock. Out of the box these cars are a ton of fun. Add sways, shocks, springs, and better tires i'm sure it will be 1000x better.

    Where do you plan on going for your tune? LIC, EQ, GST?

    You can save you some money by finding an alternative Downpipe and having it protuned or e-tuned (with much better results than OTS Stage 2) instead of the AP.

    not sure yet, I want to find a reputable and knowledgeable one. all though my mods are very basic. let me know if you preferred one over another or know soembody.

    nice list there~! please update us with your progress, it's a beautiful thing when everyone share their experiences. I felt like I know so much about this car already, and I haven't even test drive the car. but I think that I've made the right choice to order it a month ago, haha...

    BTW, elk grove subaru called me that they had the exact car I was looking for landed last weekend. I didn't take the offer because I think there might be issues with repairs and maintance through local dealer if I didn't get the car from them. That car was sold the next day when I called to tell them I didn't want the car through them.
