    I started reading some of the stickys and there is some much info its hard to grasp it all at the same time.

    I definitely going to put it on my wish list.......


    The first thing i was planning to do on my WRX was to clear bra the front and hood. Do you think its a good idea or not?

    From what I've heard they don't look great, they don't protect all that much, and they're a huge pain to remove.

    Hopefully someone who's done one in the past can give more info.

    You can set a rev limiter on it.....thats very cool!!
    I have the AP for my 2009 wrx. And yes it is very cool to have those features. I sometimes threaten to put it on valet mode when my brother-in-law drives it. I have used the anti-theft device. I tested it one time and it really works well so I"m assuming the valet mode works the same.

    Yeah for sure... your car is brand new and you might as well keep it that way... next id do window tint then some stereo upgrades if its anything like the stock 06 stereo it sucks and you'll love it that much more to drive...

    Yeah the stickys are great to help put together a mod plan, just a suggestion id keep it moderatley to low modded till you get close to paying it off to protect the warranty... if you got the AP you can easily unmarry it to the car putting it back to the stock map just incase you have to take it in to get fixed...

    Especially if you let your girlfriend driver your car limit the revs to 3500 rpm just below the turbo kicks in.....lol

    Hey, I just realized you live a few miles from me. If you happen to see a dark grey 2009 wrx hatchback on the 10 freeway in the morning/evening... feel free to wave!

    I was talking with a friend that has it on his BMW 335i and he really loves it. He said one of the nice things about having the clear bra is when you are washing the car. The dirt and grim wipes right off.....and prevent the paint from chipping!!

    MSRP for the SPT Exhaust and the Finisher was $1,100 but I got it for $800.00.

    At first i wasn't going to get the exhaust finisher but i'm glad I did it adds a little something to the look...

    Oh, by the way how are those leather seat worth forking over the few extra bucks for?
