A couple more overdue pics of the batmobile. Still need to post dyno results. Currently running a conservative tune, but trying out a more aggressive map this weekend in preparation for my first( and possibly only) track day. Paying for an instructor and need all the advice I can get from you guys. Posting a new thread (below) so please help me out. Super nervous
My car got hit for the second time in six months last week. I literally just got my car fixed less than a month ago from the last person that hit me. Neither were my fault, and the one that just happened was a hit-and-run. I was parallel parked on a busy street. This young blonde girl broke my mirror and I have dash cam video of the whole thing. She hit my car, parked in front of me, got out, looked at my car, then got back in her car and drove away. Filed a police report, so she will be getting a $1,000 dollar fine in addition to three different tickets and it will go on her driving record. I heard from her insurance last week, they offered me $300 based on the pictures of the damage. I said no. I went to a Subaru dealership and received a quote from them totaling about $800 on Friday. The girls insurance has agreed to pay that amount. If I get it fixed with OEM parts at the dealership, the check will cover it. I figure I can get it fixed for less than $200 if I don't do OEM...parts and paint. Just need to see if the aftermarket piece I ordered match’s the OEM one before I go any further.
Unfortunately, there is no way this is going to get fixed before my track day, so my car is going to look like garbage in the pictures
I am finally getting around to an aesthetic mod
I’ve wanted for some time. I spent quite some time trying to find a not-so-aggressive wing. I really wanted something that looked OEMish but didn’t want an STI wing on my WRX. FINALLY found one at a decent price-point. It took a hot minute to receive. A friend helped me set it on today to try it out. LOVE IT. Also- more importantly, it doesn’t obstruct the view out of my rear window. Doesn’t look like it from this picture but it really is pretty low-key. Which is exactly what I wanted. I need to have it sanded, primed and paint-matched to my car. I will be having this done when I have my replacement mirror painted. Then install I will also be removing the little trunk lip that came with my car when I install it. “After” pics to come eventually...
