    My 2012 Wrx

    Well just and update took all the little LEDs off my car. I felt it was a little overkill and I like stuff to look oem and try didn't. I also found that I never even used them but maybe twice since I put them in. Just ordered some tanabe lowering springs they should be in tomorrow and have them put on when I get some time at the end of the week

    My 2012 Wrx

    Another update. Took my car to speedworlds drag strip last night for a 9/11 memorial event and my first time with my car an just first time period at a drag strip. I did a total of 6 passes half against my freinds stage 2+ meth injected 2010 GTI. And surprisingly to him I would beat him by a half second every time. Bet time of the night was against a 12 mustang GT with intake,cat back and chip. I kept up to the 1/8 mile mark and then he pulled away. I ended up with a 13.9 @ 100mph . It was fun experience even though I was very scared for my wrx transmission haha.

    My 2012 Wrx

    On monday installed some tanabe df210 springs on my car. So far they have the same ride feel as stock and I do notice a little less body roll in the corners. Took me a total of 1hr to install and was advices to rent a spring compressor from autozone. Was not needed compressed it enough with my hands and did the job just fine. Getting and alignment on tomorrow. I have read that it is smart to get rear camber bolts, do most alignment shops carry these or are they something I need to order?

    My 2012 Wrx

    ]So an update. I had a d&@$-ss moment and when I was leaving a steep parking lot and got a gnarly chingadero on the front of my car. So I went to a hobby hop got some primer and pearl white that is close to my color just to offset the black chip to white paint. Fixed it up pretty good and then to top it off the lip I bought off eBay came in the day after I nailed the asphalt. So lesson learned there are painful consequences to lowering your car and don't get ballsy because you will scrape. Here's a pic of the car with the lip before and after.

    Before
    After
    I will post better pictures later when I find them

    The car looks great! The drop from the shocks look perfect in my opinion. Two months ago I installed Bilsteins shocks / Racecomp springs and I dropped about an inch all around. Three weeks ago I pulled into a spot and the curb was all jacked up. Long story short were are/were in the same boat.

    How easy was the ebay lip to install? Do you feel it compliments the car and also covers those horrible scratches?

    If I didn't get the red wrx I'd be driving that gorgeous white.

    keep updating, I'm interested where you take the car.

    Haha it sucks but the eBay lip looks really nice for only $120 an really easy to install. Just pull the front off and get a handful of tech screws and she's installed. Haha funny thing is for me it was between white and red love the red on black.
