New STI Exhaust, A great upgrade for cheap ($100) beats my cracked RS exhaust, onto bigger and better things!.

Nice car! I was wondering about your clear turn signals on the bumper, how's the fitment on them? I had a set before I think they were "depo" brand and it was very loose/wobbly after I mounted them.

Thank you! They aren't loose but they do move around a bit. I'm not sure if they are depo brand or the JDM ones, but the clear corner lights and side markers are because I grabbed both of those off ebay Lol. Also Props to you for your clean white RS, very detailed maintenance records too, glad its working out better than the FC.

Relaxing fall day. Also new Injen CAI installed this week, and finally picked up a mint RS front bumper (BRP too! =D).

Lookin' sweet. The sedan with the coupe wing in back looks perfect imo. Great color too.

New bumper is on, with an ebay replica STI lip. One of the clips is broken on the bumper from previous owner, so ordered some quick release fasteners for it as well.

Next operations paint/rust repair, and tire balancing.

Tribute to Paul Walker, it's a sad day to see him go. Like millions of others, the Fast and Furious series started my interest in cars. Brian O'Conner was a great character, if it wasn't for him and the rest of the crew I would have a normal car, and a lot more money in my bank account (but sadly no fun).Thanks again Paul for some great films and changing the lives of car enthusiasts everywhere, May the skyline be as nice as your R34 from the 4th movie, Rest in Peace.

After getting the spark plugs, fuel filter, and fuel pump replaced my car still won't turn over in the cold mornings. (-9 F). Battery and alternator are good and everything wants to turn on. I'll try throwing some premium gas in it again, definitely made for an easier winter start the last couple weeks.
