    My first mod :)

    here's my first mod- it's not a triple adjustable set of Motons, but it's a start

    All this beautiful red stitching in the interior and nothing on the shift knob- so I picked up this beauty from Jon at Flatirons.com

    genuine STi knob (same one that was on the 22B )



    the stitching is absolutely spot on



    the oe knob is OK, but kind of meh



    installed

    Oh yeah, we can do that. Did I ever send you the excel spreadsheet for it?

    Nice! Glad to see the white color isn't some sort of off-white cream color like I was fearing, but a real honest to goodness white. Congrats. I would be very interested in 2 things:

    -What kind of mpg's you're getting once it's broken in.
    -Does this car need a rear lsd or not really.

    Does Rimrock have any '09s on the lot, or are they all order-only still at this point? They don't have any here which I find odd; they're going to be discounting the heck out of the 5 '08s they've got collecting dust I suspect.

    Good luck with the mods, let the hatch action begin.

    my first tank was just shy of 25 mpg- that was w/ quite a bit of varied driving (mostly interstate though)- I think my days of 28-30 on the highway are over

    my initial testing says not really on the lsd- I'll have a better idea when I start dodging cones next springs though

    I think Rimrock has two STi's is all

    the 09's are coming in at a very slow trickle (maybe trying to clear out the 08's????)

    ^

    I "fixed" the tail lights- clear wasn't going to cut it





    I also cut the "fully monty" VentureShield ( VentureShield ) treatment- mirrors, front fenders, hood (w/ a custom strip on the scoop), full bumper cover, door edges and hatch ledge.

    guy did a great job (said it the front bumper cover was a pain- I believe him)- it's very hard to see- you have to be looking at just the right angle

    Love the tail lights Mike. That right tail pipe is looking a little lonely

    not lonely, just feeling a little inferior hope to help w/ that soon

    found another possibility for a Stock class strut besides Koni

    Nice, the only thing I truly dislike visually about the 08/09 is the taillights, and that is easily remedied. Looks world better.

    I like those AST's with their piggyback reservoirs on the rear shocks. Are they 2-way? And what's that clamp or bolt below the spring perch on the front struts?
