Always found myself ending up here while doing searches so I figure I just as well sign up! lol Already a member on a Nasioc, IWSTI, and another local one.
I have an 05 WRB STi that is a work in progress, just bought it back in March and it was pretty much stock besides a Greddy recirculating BOV and Ti shift knob so there was (and still is) a long to do list. It is also my daily driver so needs to be kept fairly drivable and reliable so nothing too crazy yet.
And a few fairly recent pics
Quick list of things Ive done so far until I get around to making a project/build thread are, swaybars, endlinks, coilovers, roll center kit, cobb catback, AccessPort stage 1 (until I get around to getting a downpipe), red powder coated turbo heat shield, grounding wires, painted headlamps, tinted tails, perrin wing stiffi, OZ Alleggeritas w/ dunlop starspecs, and a few other odds and ends that I'm too lazy to list out, all the work I did myself (besides do the alignment and the heatsheild which was custom made).
Look forward to meeting a few people around here and doing even more reading about our cars! lol

Congrats on the 05 Sti!
I love the clean look.
Headlights look great their nice and clean no amber.
Also I like the tinted taillights, and the rims look sweet!

Hello and welcome to the Club Kenny!
Great pics ... the first one is my top pick.
Not digging the tail light tint though ...
Thanks for the compliments guys, I was trying to keep it as clean looking as possible while standing out a little.
I am still in the air about the tail lights,, looked really good on my truck so I thought I would see how it looked and hated it at first. Its grown on me a little but I think I might sand it off and just leave the clear signal/reverse section tinted and re-clear them before I get a ticket for it, almost got one already at a checkstop!
First snowfall today as well so I am putting my winters on tomorrow, stock BBS's I painted gloss black and Blizzaks. Also have some Rally Armors ordered that I should have by the end of the week! going to lift the front end a little bit as well but only a half inch or so to try and get away without getting an alignment every winter. If it's still too low I will lift it another 1/2" as well as a 1/2" in the back and leave it there year round so I don't need 2 alignments every year... Thinking a skid plate will be a good idea as well for the winter.. there is a local guy who made my heat shield that is making some up that I am going to pick one up from. Going to be a fun/interesting first winter with the car.
Beautiful WRX, Great pics as well...just amazing
2007 WRX STI- Stock 13.8@102
BC Racing Coilovers with a 2" drop in the rear and little over 2 in the front,, was 2.5 but the inside was rubbing a little on the top of the wheel liner when at full lock or cornering hard.
Alignment is 0'toe all around -2' camber in the front about -1' in the back and as mush caster as they could get cant remember exact numbers. I have the printout somewhere but cant find it at the moment.
Got some Rally armor flaps and took it out in the dirt!! But a fail with crappy Iphone pics and not action shots
just signed up today myself... car is looking good
all killer ..... no filler
Buying an invidia divorced catless downpipe now in the next few weeks, was going to already but had to buy injectors to replace mine as 2 are crapping out and starting to cause misfires.
