    ERr there's a lot of black plastic push pin type clips that hold various pieces on to various other pieces. Might be one of those. Some of them have a screw that you turn and it pops up, some of them you just gotta pry. They hold the splash guard in on some spots, hold down fabric in other spots, etc...

    Is that waht you mean?

    Are some of them broken? I think fastwrx.com sells them.

    I just talked to Tristan on the Phone, He's the Man! He actually knows the guy who owned the car before me, his name is Bill. Anyhow, the thing has an Up-Pipe already on it, Plus Accessport, Downpipe and Up - Pipe. The dealer is removing the Downpipe and Exhaust and replacing it with Stock, along with reflashing the ECU. (So I can get the warrenty). I am happy to hear a ClubWrx member owned this car before me, its alittle more reassuring + the fact it has an Up-Pipe already. Tristan is hooking me up with the Badages, Splash Guard Plastic Screw, and an SPT Short Ram Intake. He also talked to me about the car, since they did everything there at Fred Beans Subaru. He said that Bill bought the Hood Scoop like a few weeks back. Oh well, I am happy.

    Well ... here is an update:
    The dealership didn't get the exhaust and downpipe in time on Tuesday. So I had to wait through the Holiday, and "apparently" it will be completed today and I can pick it up this evening. It's like torture I swear, I was all excited to pick up my car Monday, it didnt happen, i was cool with it. Then Tuesday I was like, "Today's the day" and BAM i get knocked down. I really hope things pull through today I really want my Subie. Anyhow I'd like to thank Tristan( King of Parts) from Fred Beans Subaru in Doylestown. For hooking me up, and being the ONLY person who knows how to do their job, during this mess.

    I HOPE to get my Subie tonight and start moding her with the help of our one and only King of Parts

    yuppers - that was Bills car allright, very suprised he traded it in, he was just in looking for a VF34 on that particular car.

    sorry you didnt get to see the car on Tuesday - Im at Subaru so i cant really see whats going on a Nissan. In their defense though - Jon (my buddy who supplied the downpipe) didnt get it here till after lunch time and on a shop with turnkey hours i admit they might of had a schduling problem ---- but the good news is THEY SHOULD PUT IT ON TODAY !!!

    badges and push pins sitting on the shelf with your name on it when your ready bro -- good luck

    I would rather have them spend the day doing things RIGHT, then if they rushed it on Tuesday an hour before they closed for a Holiday. So I am dealing. And YES, the suspense is killing me Tristan I appreciate everything you have done for me so far, and if you have the e-mail address or website of your buddy Jon, let me know it. I'd like to send a Thank You his way. As for the badages and push pins, it looks like Monday is going to be the day. Sorry for the delay, things have just been really hectic. Oh Tristan, have you heard from Bill about if he has the stock hood scoop and what aftermarket company the up-pipe is?


    About the Silver and Black, I am going to be taking care of that

    I PICKED IT UP

    THe car looked great, Tristans Stock Exhaust was thrown on there, to get me the warrenty. Looked alittle OLD and rusty but whatever, I am going to throw an aftermarket system on there shortly :P So they swapped out the nice aftermarket downpipe and TBE, and threw on the stock. They also didn't get the chance to reflash the ECU. So they say I need to stop by and have them redo it at somepoint. Right now its got an Accessport Cobb ECU setup lol. I am tempted to not bring it by, and see if they even remember or notice. Whats your thoughts? ONly downside is, i am running a stock exhaust and stock downpipe. Will that mess anything up?

    So basically right now I have
    Invidia Up Pipe
    Accessport Cobb (Not sure what Stage, Tristan might be able to confirm)
    Stock Exhaust

    Thoughts?
