    Enkei

    If you don't mind...keep an eye out for used wheels as well on Craigslist and forum classifieds. You can find killer deals for that kind of stuff.

    I will second Michelin Pilot SuperSport summers all day long. Best tires I've ever put on a car.

    If you want more of a budget tire though, Cooper Zeon RS3-S.

    What type of Enkies should I get? Performance or Tuner? I am definitely going to by a quality set of tires though and was planning on getting the SuperSports. $800-$1000 is for the wheels.
    Installed the SMY ClusterMaker today and it looks incredible. Matches the dash pattern perfectly and the boost gauge looks SO MUCH cleaner there. Will try to upload a picture tomorrow. So next up is new wheels and tires along with winter tires for my stock wheels.
    BTW I'm setting up a meet for the Lowell area over on NASIOC for anyone in the area. PM me if you are interested. Want to get a nice brigade of Subies and other nice cars together.

    The SMY ClusterMaker is just incredible at retaining the clean stock look while providing the ability to sport two 52mm gauges. They even sell blanks so you can fill in one of the holes in case you are just running one such as myself. The pod also comes with perfectly sized rubber bands to allow for a snug fit while giving you the option to easily remove the gauge at any time. The pattern of the pod matches the dashboard perfectly and I can't tell you enough how perfectly it matches. The machines is amazing with perfect edges and no sharp parts. Takes about 1 minute to install. Just lower the steering wheel and pull the old one off. Take the SMY and snap it in. DONE! HIGHLY recommended!

    Sitting at tint king right now getting my Windows tinted! Decided to go with 35% all around except the windshield to keep it legal.Will post pics when it's done! From what I hear this is the best place to get tint done. Definitely pricy compared to some other places, but I'll pay more for quality product and installation any day!

    $250 for the entire car excluding the front window. Even the sunroof $250 is for the cheapest option which is still great quality tint. I believe it's Formula One Comfort. Ceramic was $400.0 They laser cut everything and are the only people I would trust tinting my car. Here is the finished product!

    Looks great. I'm going to do it at some point.
    I like the window rain guards, I just got some and I'm doing my car and my moms.
    I really like the look of your car. Where we live in MA you should get rally armor mud flaps.
    They help keep it clean and stops tires from throwing rocks and tar all over the sides.

    I highly recommend the window chrome delete now that you have tinted the windows. Completes the "tinted" look in my opinion. You can get vinyl overlays or do plasti-dip.

    Yea I'm going to DEFINITELY get some Black Mudflaps with Blue RallyArmor logos as one of my next purchases. I don't LOVE the look on the sedans, but it definitely is necessary where we live. The paint on this car has a tendancy to come off easily. Also, thanks for your kind words! We should cruise around some backroads sometime. I'm trying to get a meet together over on NASIOC. PM me when you are available if you are interested.

    DEFINITELY my next purchase right there! Also going to get the 3m Vinyl Roof wrap. Loving how that looks. Also what I told him ^ also goes for you. If you are interested PM me your availability. I'd like to get a nice meet scheduled. I'm actually going camping in Maine next weekend. Don't know if you are going to be available to meet then, but I'd love to meet some of you guys as long as you don't kill me hahaha
