    You're still a hypocrite. With all those mods you can't buy a Subaru or WRX or just plain frame? lol

    You know... I've thought about it overnight, and the reason I refuse to advertise aftermarket brands on my car is because 1) None of them paid me to do it, and 2) Cars with "laundry lists" of stickers on the door repulse me. No different than the idiots with gigantic stereo system logos on their front windshield. "Hey everybody - look how much money I spent on my car!! I'm a douche - come steal from me!!"

    Then there's the guys that cover their cars in sponsorship stickers..... naming parts that aren't even on their car - LOL Don't even get me started on those guys.

    With that though..... both the guys at Cobb, as well as the guys at Rallysportdirect I know personally..... and they have done a LOT for SLCSubaru.com. Showing up/sponsoring meets, handing out T-shirts, and just being an overall great supporting entity. Perhaps not necessarily for "me" personally, but that is because I would never use my position in that club for financial gain (although they have both treated me extremely well when I shopped there).

    Yesterday..... Kirill at Rallysportdirect sold me an Exedy Stg1 organic racing clutch kit, for less than I could get it on EBAY.... and then shipped it to me at no cost. I certainly don't mind giving those guys a bit of a shout-out. That was pretty cool. Last year, when I had an emergency breakdown in the middle of BFE, Wyoming..... they gave me a Walbro at THEIR cost, and had it ready and packaged up for my wife to grab it, and drive it out to me. THAT is kick-ass customer service.

    Cobb gave me a tour of their facility when I first arrived in Utah (before slcsubaru even existed) - they were super-cool to me. When I bought my sways and mounts from them, they gave me an awesome deal... and then stayed late waiting for my wife to arrive and pick them up.... and then loaded everything in the car for her. They sponsored BBQs, handed out freebies at slcsubaru meets....... good people.

    With that... Both the Brat and the Tribeca have RSD license covers on them.... and the WRX has Cobb license covers on it. I'm cool with that... they are both great companies that have treated me, and my club quite well.

    Buying new license plate covers isn't exactly a huge investment....... But I think I'm going to leave them the way they are.

    I can't believe I put this much thought into this - LOL

    Haha I apologize for the mental anguish I have caused you!

    I agree with you though...cars with tons of stickers just look tacky. I personally have a large Analog (snowboard brand) "AG" sticker on my car because it is my initials. I also have a small Cobb sticker (because they're white and they look pretty on my white WRX with dark tint) on each side of my car on the little rear quarter windows because they came with my AP and I love my AP. My only worry is that someone will go window smashing sometime to get at my AP, even though I don't leave it in the car.

    Either way, I generally agree with you when it comes to putting stickers everywhere on the car...but a couple of favorites won't make you a tool

    ^^ Yea... you're right. I think there's a "line" that shouldn't be crossed. No worries on the "mental anguish" - LOL Believe it or not, I did spend quite a few hours thinking about it last night though - LOL

    Personally, all my stickers go on my "book"

    here's my book...... the original sale paperwork all the way down to the tags the factory put on the airbags when the car was new. Over $20,000 in receipts (after the purchase).....every piece of paperwork, every receipt for every modification, every oil change, every fluid change, every trade and every purchase ever made....... listed in chronological order, documented with the corresponding mileage at the time of the event...... all in separate page protectors - LOL

    Yea.... I'm kinda neurotic - LOL



    I have one of these for the Tribeca and the Brat too... this one for the WRX is just (by far) the biggest.

    The books I had for the SVX went to the new owner, as did the last couple Porsche 914s and Trans Ams I built. It all boils down to resale value. Buying a used car is risky business, especially WRXs and STIs that are brutally abused by idiot kids with rich parents. I wouldn't buy one if I didn't know the history (thats why I bought this one new instead of used). Whenever I decide to sell this (or any) car, the buyer will have absolutely no worries about what was done, when, or whether or not it was done right.

    Plus, EVERYONE "says" that the oil was changed every 3000 miles with full synthetic. I have the chronologically-dated receipts to prove it

    Impressive...I kept my window sticker and the dealer receipts for the car as well when I purchased it new...I was too scared to risk buying some poor used and abused car.

    Sadly, I can't write myself a receipt for the oil changes I Perform myself, but I do keep every receipt for the modifications on my car, as well as all of the original parts to return it to stock if necessary. I think you're right...nothing helps resale value like documentation.

    ^^^ Naa, I do all my own fluid changes as well. I document the mileage, and save the receipt for everything I bought, and staple them together.

    I suppose it "could" all be completely falsified... but I think overall it just gives a better impression of the overall quality of the vehicle, you know?

    So I just updated the first post with a new engine pic.... and my new (completely pointless) blue Samco hose kit.

    Doesn't this start tomorrow? Do I need to do anything?

    I think it might just be the angle of the photo? The fenders have never been off.... Came from the factory that way.

    No..... not at all.

    Thats not entirely true..... if I'm cruising 70+ mph on the highway, and hit a HARD dip or bump..... the rear will touch for a split second.... the fronts never touch though. I couldn't stand that.
