3. Finally, no pictures, but I purchased and installed the PST Carbon Fiber driveshaft. As the advertisements say, it is about 14.5 lbs compared to the OEM 28 lbs. It isn't mind blowing, but it does feel like a worth upgrade so far.
Nice so you just bought a WRX CVT leather console? I was just gonna wrap my console with a gloss black over the silver trim. I already got the piano black vents and HVAC buttons and also got BLack HVAC dials on mine. I'm still contemplating if I wanna do custom wraps over the carbon pieces. Will have to update my journal soon. lol

How you like the drive shaft? I'm really on the fence with it.

No pics, but I might be able to get some of the waste gate to the bc.

Yeah. It was just the WRX CVT jdm unit. It looks great in the car, and I haven't had any issues with shifting (have the OEM STI short shift kit). I believe all of the faux sprayed on carbon fiber is removed from my interior now.

Driveshaft: I do like it. Is it a crazy, mind blowing change? No. I think throttle response is improved and I think there is less noise in cabin. It's probably similar to going to stage 1 from factory. Slightly improved and noticeable, but not like going from factory to turboback exhaust, e85 etc.

Hey do you have any part numbers on the interior Trim piece? The Crosstrek silver/black piece?

Thanks!

Car is looking really good! Need to order some parts one of these days.

Thanks!

Default Rear Strut Brace Installed

Installed the Cusco Rear Cross Strut Brace last night. Very simple to install.





Obviously removes the usefulness of the rear fold down seats, but I have a truck for a daily driver so I don't need that functionality.

UPDATE: removed it since it made a lot of noises when it was cold. A lot of creaking noises and made it not worth it.

Default Joseph Subaru Meet

I went to my first Subaru car meet yesterday. It was the Joseph Subaru meet in Florence, KY and I had a great time.

There were a lot of cool Subies there and the event was amazing. They raffled away Subaru gear and I left with coasters, glasses, chairs, and even won a few trophies there which was awesome.






Handmade trophy for best wheel fitment and won 3rd place for 2015+ STIs.



Spectacular event and had a blast. Free pizza, bunch of give aways, and was fun seeing Subaru fans in on place.
