    Strudinox's 2015 WRX Premium

    Today I just broke 1000 miles so I figured it's time to let the mods begin! So far this has been an amazing ride. Driving to and from work is pretty much the highlight of my day! The only mods I've done so far are purely cosmetic, ALL LEDs to replace factory bulbs (inside and out), HID 6000K lowbeams, RokBlokz mud flaps, 10% tint (5 rear windows. Damn you CA!), and other minor changes. Now that I broke the 1K mile limit I'm going to start focusing on the engine/suspension. I just placed an order for a Cobb AccessPort which should be here by the end of the week. I'm really interested to see how the Stage 1 map runs on stock.

    The next thing I want to do is a headlight assembly mod. I've researched this to death and I believe at this point I feel comfortable enough to do it. I plan on painting the reflector assembly black and adding some LED strips inside of the C-light or boomerang light. I noticed Subispeed sells a wiring harness which will let me use the C-light as a DRL. I also plan on blacking out the squirrel finder inside the low beam projector assembly since I'm running HIDs. I think my neighbors/other drivers will thank me for that.

    Nice!
    I'm sure that thousand miles didn't come soon enough.
    You'll like the Cobb AP, only downside it gets the mod bug to bite you.
    Then you just keep going and going, until you've created a monster.

    It will be a slow process for me as I let funds trickle in. It's just tough convincing the wife that I NEEEEED a TBE....etc

    Trunk interior lighting got you down? No longer with a simple DIY LED strip replacement mod! The LED strips have a super sticky 3M self adhesive backing so they are not going anywhere. I wired them into the bulb socket using a homemade plug which resembles the original bulb's footprint.

    BAM!

    Have you thought about adding one under the engine hood? I think it needs more light up there too, but have not looked at what it might need.

    Good idea. It should be easy enough to wire it into a 12V source and turn it on and off with a switch under the hood.

    I have the RBs on my '15 and I love them. I tossed around the idea of RA but I couldn't justify the price... and I'm not a fan of the glossy finish. The RBs provide great protection from the snow and salt.

    Thanks! I also had Rally Armors on my 08. I liked them, but I'm not crazy about the floppy-ness. The RA mounting hardware was probably slightly more durable, however the RokBlokz hardware is still really good. No way these things are going anywhere. I love how thick and durable they feel!

    I'm actually planning on doing it next Friday! I'm excited/nervous about it since it's my first time doing it. I'll keep you all posted.
