Thanks!


Not much new on the brakes. I plan to spend some quality time with them this weekend though. I'll post any pics/updates I can. We picked up this life mod last month so she has been taking up most, all, of my free time when my wife is gone.

Rears are primed and drying. Fronts are soaking in degreaser.

Today I finished painting the front calipers. The front and rears are painted. I need to spray the logo stencils and then clear coat them and they'll be done. I'll get some pics up when I'm done.

Today I also swapped out the BBS/Direzza summer combo for the v7/Potenza winter combo. Man, the BBS are beat! I'm not running spacers or anything but man, they have taken some serious wear and tear the last couple years. I washed, waxed, Klasse'd them in March but no that's no help against rocks. They're going to need a full on refurb in another year or two....sigh.

The clutch from the drivetrain I bought was shot; not too surprised by that honestly. I picked up a new clutch, pressure plate and bearing last week. I got a flywheel too but it's not supposed to be in until tomorrow. The Brembo seal kits are ready at will call too so I'll pick them up when the flywheel is in. I also ordered a DCCDPro last week so that should be here this week or early next week. Man...the bank account is taking a beating!

Brembos are all painted (2007 cell phone pic FTL); still need a couple coats of clear though. Once that's wrapped up and the DCCDPro is here it's game on.

So you're the one who got away with this beauty! I'm endlessly jealous.

I went for a ride in the car and went to the bank the next morning to get a loan for this car. Ended up being about a grand short for it. (Damn the NADA) And because of that, I lost it

One of the biggest regrets of my life not buying this car. It seems you're enjoying it and putting it to good use though!

Sorry, I haven't checked this in a while. Thanks! I remember there being quite a few people interested in it. I've been happy with it. It looks like you have a nice RS too!

Yeah for the price and the amount of time/money put in to the thing I'm sure a lot of people were. Had I another month I would've had it.

In comparison my car is hardly a thing to yours. It's nice, but not quite halfway to the same quality/value as yours is. Haha, sorry. I just get disappointed when I think of what I missed out on.

No worries man. Heck I see cars on here and nazicock all the time that I lust after. I've had an 04 STi, 01 stock RS and now this one. Regardless of what you have there's always something "better." I've learned to just enjoy what I'm in.
