    Noooob

    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

    Welcome aboard!

    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!

    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.

    Which model/size Blizzaks?
    How much drop with the C/Os and which ones?
    What alignment?

    Blizzaks are the 225/45/17 WS60's
    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.

    Thanks! Think the tail light tint is getting axed this weekend, I decided I like it better red and would rather avoid a ticket for it.
    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.
