Default Justin911- 2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS

Hey there everyone... In case you haven't realized it yet, my name is Justin. (See user name! ) This is my member journal about my 05' 2.5RS

History: So I got my car on Presidents Day of 2007. I bought it from Subaru of Santa Monica in LA. I looked and did research on my car for about 6 months before we pulled the trigger and found the car. So after looking on Auto Trader for quite some time, I finally found my car that I own now. After 2 days of negotiations, and plenty of battling with the Dealership, we finally walked out with my car at the price I wanted. It had just over 9k miles on it and we bought it for $17,500 out the door! Pretty fair price from the dealership with that low of miles on it.

Here's a picture of the car when it was completely stock:



Here's how the car is sitting now:



Mod List

Exterior
- Prodrive P1 wheels w/ Nexen N3000 tires (changing the tires after they ware out a bit more)
- Rally Armor Mud Flaps
- Subaru Rally Pigs
- RS25.com Sticker :P
- Tyler Slack Memorial Sticker

Interior
- iPod FM transmitter!

Engine
- Stromung Single Tip
- Borla Rep. UEL Header

Suspension
- ISC N1 Coilover (Sport/Street Spring Rate)

Future Mods:
- FSB and RSB adjustable
- Strut Braces
- Better Tires
- Hella Supertones
- Debating on getting Supers Cali Legal HFC
- CAI

This is what I've got so far. I'm also open to other mods to the car, so bring on the suggestions.

Thanks for looking everyone! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to POST!!!

-Justin

Beatuiful car my man, the "peanut" front end is easily the best looking grill out there I'm really diggin the wheels too. What is your frist suspension upgrade going to be? i think i'd like to start with the sway kit seems to get the best response from users, and its cheap enough on the SPT website just under $90 bones. Beats the Rallytech at 280, I wonder if its that much better for the price difference....

Hey man.. Thanks for the compliments!!! As far as suspension mods go. I'd like to do a RSB... I may do that first, just to stiffen things up a bit. After that, I plan on either going with struts and springs, or coils. I haven't quite decided yet.

So a little update. Today I went over to JWalkers house and we decided that it would be a good idea to do the JDM tail light mod to my tail lights. It was a really simple mod and definitely gives the back of the car a different personality! LOL

I'll try to get some pictures posted up soon.

So here are the photos of my exhaust with before and after shots...

Just got to my house!! Time to install


Here's the old exhaust when its off the car.


Side by side comparison shots



And now its finally on. Let the good sound begin!


I've had my exhaust now for about a year or so. I'm really happy with it. It sounds great, it doesn't drone, has a full sound, but not too loud. I'd love to get a HFC to really make it a bit deeper sounding, but for the time being and living in CA, I don't want to get busted for exhaust. That would be a pain in the ass. As far as the headers go, I didn't get any photos of the headers, but who doesn't know what subaru headers look like! I went with the Borla replica headers from ebay, and they couldn't be any better. I'm extremely happy with the headers and the headers combined with the stromung is a perfect combo, IMO.

(Please note that I'm a little behind on keeping my Journal up to date. All these photos are pretty old. I'm going to start keeping it more up to date so I can show my scoob off! haha)
