    Last time I counted, I was at $8900 in mods.

    I just spent another $1700 in the past week on swaybars, endlinks, tires, and a stoptech stg 1 brake kit.

    over 90% of what I buy is on eBay... after shopping for hours. I'll shop for 3 hours to save 10 bucks.... thats how cheap I am--LOL

    Retail???? EASILY $15K... probably more

    Thank god I do my own labor--LOL

    You're right... my wife is SO going to leave me--LOL

    Honestly... I spoil her too though... we're actually looking at picking up a 4th Subie for her to use as a commuter. I have no idea if a baby seat fits in an SVX.... but I hope so

    Gettin all hot and sticky over here



    Haven't had a chance to "really" try them out yet.... funny..... the tires are actually pretty quiet...... except every little piece of sand, pebble, dirt, etc gets picked up by these things...... So I hear this constant rat tat tat tat tat from my wheelwells.

    Kinda cool actually..... cause I know why it's doing it

    You're about the 1000th person that has told me that--LOL

    I HATE, despise tinted windows..... I can't see out of them at night. They look awesome on cars from the outside... I just can't stand driving them.

    The Tribeca is tinted from the factory.... I hate driving it at night.

    Next up... Stoptech stg 1 brake kit (pads, fluid, steel braided lines).... supposed to show up Monday from UPS.... I'll be doing it next week sometime

    Sorry man, I guess I just get so used to the tinted look it just looks strange to me without it

    One thing I like about tint/window film is it cuts down on the heat, the UV rays beating on your dash, etc, and really helps out the glare on a bright day. It's like sunglasses. That's why I got it, but that's just me.

    These things are crazy!!! I've never owned a set of tires like this before. It's amazing... the sidewall is damn near bulletproof..... feels like it's made out of kevlar or something....
    Nice those Nittos are sweet. Gonna have to factor that tire in as a possible choice now. Ahhhh, damn decisions! I want an easy answer and the best price, lol.

    I hear on the ebay thing, I am a deal finder. If it takes hours I will spend them, and if it takes weeks, I will wait. Haste makes waste. I shop through CL too. Found my scooby on ebay and went all the way to Portland to get it. Drove it back in two days, Cannonball run style.

    Metallic Silver 2004 STi with 17K for 17K, ahh geah.

    If only tires were more affordable... I just found out yesterday the nice $675 Michelins I had on last year before the winter are now junked, and can't put them back on again for this summer. Looks like I'll have to drop another $675 on some tires. Faaaaack.

    Aye. Funny thing is, with my "performance" alignment I have now, absolutely no tire wear. Junk alignment I had before, or lack thereof, that's what caused my tire wear, I'm guessing....

    Man I swear the alignment is so sensitive on STis, I have about 1-2 32nds of tread difference in my two front tires and which ever side has the smaller size...the car has a slight pull to that direction (i know cuz I switch the wheels on front just to prove t to myself). Might also be that my 070s are down to less than half the tread. Think the only resolution is four new ones...ahh more scrilla.

    Love these cars to death, but what with tires, fuel, and upgrades, they can deplete the wallet just as fast as they launch off the line.

    Stock rotors? Bet if you grabbed a pair of Brembos drilled/slotted and had the setup you have you would stop on a dime and give 9 cents change back.

    Yeah I have the Brembo cross drilled and I want to get the braided steel lines. Even with stock lines, my ride stops real nice...can feel the grab more as the brakes heat up, kinda crazy, you can check yourself if your not careful, lol. Downside....brake dust ahhhhh. Thats why you get black rims

    You can get 4 brembos for the price of 2 stock replacements, at least thats the story for the STi.
