    Hey guys-
    I'm looking for wheels -- 17"s .... again. Let me know if anyone knows of anything.

    Also, where did you guys get your tint done? I'm shopping for that also- Eclipse quoted me 250 and Pristine quoted 260. Will any place cut a deal if anyone else needs it done?


    ....jeeezus VVVVVVVV a $7000 Toolbox? Thats nucking futs.
    Don't you bring that weak tot action

    Took both of ours to eclipse and he gave us a 2 car discount, not much though. Did an alright job on mine, no bubbles, but the tint has got some funky ripples in it in a couple places. Seems like a defect in the film to me, more than an installation defect. It hasn't bothered me enough to have him redo it.

    haha 7 grand when you work out of that box every day isnt much. Im pretty sure that wade will back me up on how sweet it really is in person.

    As for tint. I will ONLY go to Doug at Sun Scape, not because I have had bad luck somewhere else, but because he is an awesome guy, he competes on a world tinting circuit and he has done every one of my cars I needed tinted. You can tell him Bo Lillich sent you down, he may cut you a deal.

    Car is getting aligned at Expert Tire today.

    Specs-Front-1.25 degrees each side, 0 toe. Rear -1.15 degrees each side 0 toe.

    I had to use an SPC camber bolt kit part number 81260 for the rear to get that -1.15 degrees camber I wanted. The front is working with the factory cam bolt.

    I just looked at the factory specs and what I wanted my car to be.

    I got the front too -1.0 deg and the rear to -1.5 deg thats as close as I could get.

    Whats wrong with em wade? Should I change something?

    I dunno, it really depends on the rack and how they did it. I got -1.5 on the front with factory bolts, and -1.0 rear with the aftermarket camber bolts at Les Schwab. But Big-O could only get -1.1 all around when I took it to them a couple years ago.

    Most of the threads I've read recommend -1.5/-1.0 and 0.0 toe. But people seem to be all over the map with what they can get with basically identical setups.

    ...and I don't know if the numbers I got from LS are legit, because they show a massive change in before/after caster and that's pure BS, the caster isn't even adjustable on our cars. It feels good though, and that's all that really matters.

    hahaha yea my caster is good. I have some other issue with my car so I will be looking at a replacement craddle and new struts. It isnt really a big deal but it looks like it was bent and never fixed. My car is aligned good and all but I just dont want to go out and autox it with a bent up craddle..

    Depends. What's going to be the deal with the 09? I actually like the look of the new 08 hatch body style for the STI. The WRX hatch and sedan look pretty lame, but the wider fenders on the STI makes it work for me.

    As far as the 07 goes, great car, still not a fan of the "tribeca" style nose on it though. And will be more parts available for mods than with the 09. (And since you have a Tribeca, the noses would match )

    HAHA well actually if I waited for the 09 the interior is supposed to be a mini indentical.

    HELL YES!! Shoot me a PM!

    I dont know about the headlights anymore, but I will deffinately get the accessport. I will need to get a brand and how much for the exhaust.

    Haha... I had asked if that was your wagon I'd seen over there a few pages ago: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showpo...postcount=2241

    I walk to work on the gravel path above those houses.
