Hey guys. I got inspired by Ninefourteener and decided to put toghether a progress thread to kind of consolidate everything I've been posting on clubWRX since September. So...Here goes!
I live down in Newport Beach, and got my beautiful new 2011 WRX Sedan in Satin White Pearl on 09/17/2010. Over 9k on the clock now and I'm loving every minute of it. I also have a 1970 El Camino, but the Subie is my first foray into smaller displacement motors and let me tell you...I'm in love.
Anyways, without further ado...some photos to bring you up to speed:
When I first got her:
Then I tinted the windows, debadged and did the "RA-R" Mod. The tint is 20% on the sides and 5% on the rear. Original thread here:
I added my favorite sticker:
For those not familiar, Analog is a snowboarding company and I'm a pretty avid snowboarder. But the real reason I have that sticker is because AG just happen to be my initials.
Next came my Hella Supertones. You can find my install thread here or in my signature:
From there, I began my performance mods. The car has a Cobb AP installed with the Stage I+AEM map and, obviously, the AEM Cold Air intake.
The car pulls amazingly now, and feels a million times smoother. Feel free to check out this link for more discussion of these mods:
I also added my Kartboy Delrin shifter, and will be doing the shifter bushings shortly. I absolutely hated the stock knob, as I felt it was too tall and awkwardly shaped:
Then I added something I've wanted since the first day I got the car, my Perrin 2" Shorty Antenna! I was so excited for this and it looks amazing IMO. I took a couple of photos at a random spot I found with my girlfriend. The last one posted here was a hasty photoshop I did to try to bring out some more color:
So anyways, glad to be here, and feel free to flash me the deuces if you see me around. You know I'll be giving it back. The Subaru community and especially ClubWRX has been awesome to me. I'm looking forward to owning this car for a very long time, and look forward to sharing any new mods with you folks via this thread.
