    Yep. He would have the updated map back within an hour usually. He is also really helpful on answering any questions on parts of other Subaru related stuff.

    Process was super easy. I got mine done for $250. I got them done when I was getting new tires so I wouldn't have to get tires remounted or anything. I have some pics in my "build" thread lol you can take a look at. It actually looks pretty similar to the finish on yours. I got 20% gloss black.

    Over the past week or so I have done a few things to the WRX.

    First up, the wonderful present from my wife. Rally Armor Mud Flaps:





    Next was the OEM Black Fender Garnish with the Red vinyl inserts:







    After that I decided to polish the SPT Exhaust since it was FILTHY.
    Before:


    After:





    During the next few days I'm deciding what I want to do next. Definitely going to get a short throw shifter and most likely a Bayson R CS front lip.

    Hey Chief

    I got mt 2014 at Heuberger too they're awesome. Have you been to torqued performance yet? What did it cost you for your pro tune? Did you get an Access Port too?

    Scratch the previous wanted items short throw and Bayson R front lip. I have pulled the trigger on a set of Swift Sport lowering springs. I got an offer I couldn't refuse.









    Im excited to get them installed but from what I hear it is a PITA to do. Should have nice weather here in Colorado on Friday so Im hoping to get them done then. Ill for sure post pictures of a before and after when complete.


    Just for fun a photo from the other night while waiting for a buddy at the Denver Airport.

    Dude your car looks sick man. I wanted a silver STI but ended up with a white one because the wait would have been too long. It took six weeks to get my white and that was long enough

    What did those springs set you back?

    Happen to catch a steal on them, picked them up for a cool $180. SWP is a great color, I believe it opens up more options for wheel colors too. With silver some wheel colors dont look as good.

    Where did you get them? That's a great deal for sure.

    >>SWP is a great color,

    I'm from the Bay Area: I like Silver and Black

    Good luck in the playoffs this weekend--

    I happen to know a guy who had them on his car for ~2K and then changed to coilovers and just had the springs laying around.
