    Proud new owner of a 2007 WRX! Many mods to come!

    So I just picked up an Obsidian Black 2007 WRX TR. I've been wanting this since it came out and finally picked one up. I've had it for a little over a month now and have been working on it since.
    So far I have:
    - upgraded to Stage 2 (Divorced Invidia catted down pipe, Turbo XS up pipe, Borla Hush exhaust, Cobb Accessport 2 tuned)
    - kart boy SS with new bushings
    - front lip
    - reupholstered the car with a Katzkins leather kit. Took about 11-12 hours with my dad to help. Also added heated seats
    - tinted windows and smoked all the lights
    - App radio 2 (upgrading to 3)
    - Soon to be installed- 18x9.75 flat black wheels BC Coilovers. Perrin anti sway bars and end links. Vortex generator, STI Limited rear spoiler lip. Side skirts , rear diffuser and lip. I have an amazing sound system I'm about to install next week can't wait. My cousin builds for Audio competitions and he is hooking me up.

    I'm still trying to figure out what I should do next. No turbo swaps or anything at least for a long while. I want to enjoy it and have it be as reliable as possible. It's my DD. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Click image for larger version.

    welcome. good job on the seats! i have a TR as well and thats my #1 pet peeve.

    i just recently installed BC's on mine and i love them. the handling is like night & day over stock. the sti limited lip will also look amazing

    as far as suggestions,i'd honestly skip the diffuser. it might look too cluttered with the limited lip & take away the simplicity of it. look in to an aftermarket shift knob. i have a WC lathe werks piston knob and absolutely love it.

    desiree

    Thanks guys. I'm holding off for now on the diffuser. But I still like it. For now I'm just going to install the side and rear lip pieces. I'll post update pics when I do more work. What else could I do to boost HP?

    Hey nice car man! and good choice on the TR. I just bought a black 06 and the guy before me swapped the interior for the STI interior which I really like. Keep up with these posts, Im looking forward to seeing the progress!
