01/06: Bought the car around January 2006 for 1000 from an old lady. % speed and FWD. Stayed stock until the end of the year.





12/06: Purchased tires for my rims i bought a few months back, 12 dollar fog lights, and Rallyarmor mudflaps.






1/07: Mounted my tires and put the new rims on. Soon after i realized i needed some sort of drop.

2/07: Fog lights broke off after taking a driveway to fast . I didn't mind considering shortly before 1 stopped working and the 12 dollar price i paid. Purchased and installed 2.5rs springs on my car. Got them for a good price and the drop made the car look alot better. I also painted the chrome window trim around my windows oem black.







4/07:

Bit the bullet and purchased:

Whiteline rear sway bar 20mm
wrx lateral links
rear endlinks
swaybar mounts
whiteline front endlinks ( since my L comes with 19mm sway anyway)
Rear WRX Brake Calipers with Brackets
WRX Rear Rotors
new Rear Stainless Steel lines
new Rear AXXIS/PBR Metal Master Pads

Installed them over a week since i bought the wrong lateral links the first time. Pretty painless with the exception of the swaybar. Also took 2 pictures that made my car look ok looking.

Wrong lateral links:


Right lateral links with wrx disc's installed(never mind the date on the pics).

6/07: Ok, ok it's a small update. I bought the recent Super street since a NASIOC member's car was featured and got these!



Points if you identify who's on the cereal box in the background of pic. 2.

6/15/07: Perry Subaru delivered the parts this morning. Still waiting on the scoop and vents i bought from a member here.





6/28/07: Well, i got the vents and scoop a while back and sanded them down and put some black primer on them. I don't think I'm going to put any of the parts on until I'm ready for paint.


Cell phones rule. .

Looks like you have a poop load of old classic looking cars in your driveway. What are they?

Lower your car and it will look a hundred times better. lol! Really it will.
