    Yep, 25mm hub adapter...gave the stock STi wheels a great looking aggressive stance, but I wasn't impressed with the drive quality...getting these TSP6's at a +45 offset still look alright (and drives great) but I do miss that look. Will probably go with a wider tire eventually.

    Yeah those STI wheels are heavy as hell too...I test fitted a set on my old 05 STI when I put my coilovers on just because a buddy had them laying around in his garage.

    No kidding, didn't know at the time, but they're like 26.6lbs...new wheels are 21.5...I think taking 20lbs of weight away from the wheels is a good thing

    Finished installing my Hella Super Tones today! Got a good deal on them used from another member with the subi-mods bracket and wiring harness included. I painted them black and combined with de-badging the grill I'm satisfied with the stealthy look. I hear a lot about how obnoxiously loud they are, but I don't really think so. I park outside though, so maybe in a garage they would be deafening...although my hearing is pretty terrible, so that could have something to do with it also

    Maybe I'm getting out of control with the Alcantara, but I figured if my access port is going to be mounted, it may as well match the rest of the trim

    Well, my Brembo kit is all ready to install. I debated on the color for a while, but finally decided to go with my initial thought. I tried mixing some satin pearl paint mixture in, but it didn't come out (instead it just made the paint bumpy). Lesson learned...I'll probably repaint them Silver or Red next time. They look OK, should look really good once installed.

    Still waiting on time/shop availability to get the brakes installed, but got some custom carbon fiber fender badges in. They're awesome quality, and match the OEM SPt pieces. Also got a new steering wheel emblem from them to clean up my interior a bit. Installed:

    Wow dude, spt side garnishes look nice! And I think the new rotors look great as well! They color choice, IMO, will look great on the car! Cant wait to see them installed.

    Oh, forgot about my new boost gauge location. Got a single gauge pod that sits just left of the cluster hood and wrapped it in Alcantara (of course, lol).
