I introduced myself to the forums early January of 2014, shortly after purchasing my 1st WRX, a 2011 Lightning Red Hatchback. Here are some pics of it, along with our other toys:
And of course the necessary snow pic:
I'm starting this thread to keep track of any modifications and/or repairs that will take place during it's life in my possession. The car is currently only being used for daily duties mixed in with some spirited driving so that's where most mods/upgrades will stem from. I've only installed the following since I got the car:
- POWER STOP K4490 Z23 Evolution Sport rotors and pads
- K&N drop-in air filter
I've been eyeing up some wheels for it for quite some time since it's one of the best upgrades you can throw at your car. I was torn between the ROTA Grids, MXR-Rs or the very popular Enkei RPF1, all in gold of course After some serious internal debating between my conscience and myself, I've decided on the Enkei for 2 reasons: build quality and resale value. I finally pulled a trigger on them today and ordered them in 18x9.5 et38. They'll be wrapped with 265/35ZR-18 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2. I also ordered knock-off Enkei center caps and aluminum hub centric rings for the wheels. I'll post some pictures once they're mounted and installed
I do have a couple of questions for you guys:
1. Which TMPS sensors can I run with these wheels?
2. What's a good re-programmer to buy for the TPMS so this way I can avoid trips to the dealer?
Thanks ahead for the replies!
Next on the list: anything to reduce the annoying bounce and body roll!
