    Figured I would start a build thread for myself to track my progress as I go.

    I had the STi Short Throw Shifter included with the purchase.

    I then added the SPT cat back exhaust.

    I purchased the Lamin-x gun smoke tail light tint and applied it myself.

    I purchased the cargo liner and organizer which helps a lot keeping it tidy and in good shape.

    I bought the Cobb red shift knob. $70 for the knob was a little much but it ended up being a nice quality knob. It is resistant to hot and cold temps so its a nice feel.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yeah I'm thinking so. I'm going to throw on some Rally Armor UR flaps for winter. I have General Altimax winter tires with steelies I'm about to put on now that winter has set in. Then I may just get Open Source tuned to stage 1 maps. I'll then be looking to purchase a Grimmspeed DP and go stage 2 maps. I talked to my dealer and they told me if I put a down pipe on, it only voids the down pipes warranty. Nothing else!

    won't the tuning void the drivetrain warranty?

    My dealer said no. This coming from a salesman who drives a modded new wr's. He said flash stock maps and no issues

    General Tire Altimax with 16" steelies for the winter set up! Should be on tomorrow if I can get the centering ring situation figured out!

    Sweet ride man! I went to that dealership to look at a WRX myself. I ended up somewhere else since they didn't have what I want, but they were really cool for sure. Congrats!

    I put mine on in November because there was a forecast for snow the next week. That definitely didn't happen... I'll pray for snow for the both of us/anyone else that likes the snow.

    Not at all. I just made sure that they did what was suggested in the tires/wheels thread I started. Tighten the lug nuts in a star shape and have them do it while lifted so it is centered properly. I also made sure they torque wrenched the lugs and not done using the air wrench.

    Had the SPT boost gauge installed. Very nice quality and quite responsive and accurate. i don't have anything to compare it to but I am happy with it. The fact that it matches perfectly with the interior lighting makes it pop!
