Well I got tired of a never ending project so I went out looking for a car......any car, something that just ran. I promised myself not to get a subaru :diaf:

after a short search for a car I found this RS so I went out to get it. I havent told anyone that I bought it and my family thought that I went out to get an suv. :lol:

well here some mods/pics (the one's with a front plate are from the previous owner)

Tein SS coil overs
Slotted and Drilled front and slotted rear rotors
25mm front sway bar
Whiteline 24mm rear sway

Even though it needs alot of attention, I'm very happy with it and I'm probably the only one thats drooling over my own car :)

Will the carbon fiber scoop bump you out of STS?? I know a carbon or aluminum hood will. I am sure that some nit picker may call you on this.

Hope to see you at the Tire Rack next year.....(maybe 2010 Subaru Challenge ) I get over there once or twice a year for auto-x, too long of a drive for more.

and Dan I highly dought that it will. they wheigh the same. and if its a problem i'll put stocker on before the event. I hope to get my other P.O.S. out to tire rack and subie challenge next year. I might actualy save up and have a dedicated auto-x only miata. but thats a slim chance that will happen.
