    Old but New at the same time?

    My name is George. Last year i got me a 2013 WRX swp sedan. I came out of an 2006 Audi A4. The Audi was near perfect except for when something when wrong is was a lot to fix even a simple censor was triple the price. BS man. So I decided to get into to the Subaru world. I came to Subaru because a lot of people I know have great experience with reliability and performance. So on Memorial day weekend I drove by Subaru just to look at the options. We looked around the lot, they had a Dark gray wrx base wagon they were trying to move. As we walked inside the had ’13 SWP Limited sedan looking amazing. I turned an said “I want that one”.. He laugh and said they all do. lol So after a few days of getting stuff settle thru the bank and getting the deal i wanted, It happened So on June 1, 2013 I drove what is now my favorite of them all .. It has now been a year, 16k miles, and endless fun.

    thank you

    Yes i have mods a few things, mind you I havent done much becuase i dont want to completly destroy my warranty. Ive been burned before so Im playing it safe for a few years.

    High Flow air filter.

    Nameless axle back - I love the sound.

    Tint - 15%

    Tein springs - I think they are just fine for daily use, car will never see a track so I just fine with them.

    Shorty Antena 2"- Ebay works just fine. Dont understand why people spend brand name money for an antenna? I had mine for a bit now, thru good and bad weather and long road trips and its been perfect, great reception and all, even bought a nice lunch with the money i saved LOL

    Ebay front lip - Looks good, saved a bunch of dough on something that will break soon, I live in NYC, so lets see how long it last LOL

    Dynamat the doors and trunk - did that out of habbit becuase of my old car audio years. It def needed it though. Def recommend it

    20mm hubcentric spacers Ichiba, something you dont wanna skimp out. I think it brings the stock wheel perfect to the body and with the slight drop it looks perfect to me and no rubs even on a few hard turns or pulls, and again they been holding up just fine for a while with being only a daily driver.

    So are these spacers pretty safe to run?

    This is my forth car running spacers, 2003 accord sedan, 2003 accord coupe, 2006 audi a4. In the 6 yrs total including a few months with them on the subaru, i have never had a wheel fall off, never had my bearings go bad, and never had any minor or massive issues. I just check them once a month and retorque them. Keep in mind i have taken long road trips and alot of city driving. No track or rally racing, just everyday normal driving.
