Talking STi Sold bought BMW back to STI 2013 Sedan

Hello, recently joined this site to learn about my car, and the community. I happen to buy this car by chance was set on a Evo ix mr. But I am rather happy about how things fell into place. I am coming from a 2007 Honda Fit sport and a 2004 VW GLI with a few mods.(no I am not a typical vw ricer kid that can afford a sti/evo. I just happen to fall in love with evos and sti and I matured into the adult I am today. Currently I am a 25 year old working professional with a wife and newborn.
Before buying this car I was considering options for about 5 months. Lots of research reviews and person preferences(for family). Top five choices came down to Evo ix mr,08 bmw 335xi,08 Audi A3,08 Audi A6. Than came along a old friend who had a STI currently a member here Damstr, refer to link damstr's 05 WRB/Gold STI: New detailing pics page 11!
I have never really been as big on sti as I was on evo, so I said why and had nothing to contest about. So he hooked me and with a "friend price" and the rest is history.

So I noticed the car had a great deal of swirls in the paint . So we took a day to detail the car and get rid of the swirls! Took over 10 hours of work, but worth it! The paint now feels silky smooth almost like baby skin! Just amazing what two focused people can achieve
enjoy the pics!
P.s
All buffing and expertise of a women pretty cool !

The whole car was covered in swirls from its previous life rather sad. Also two rust marks o e from fender rolli g another from accident. Will be fixing ASAP.

Enjoy photos from hours of hard work!

Prep



Some cool person wrote <3honda on my hood
Had to be buffed out!

Nice gift from a neighbor


Down to business!




Results!

Awesome pickup man the car looks great! I've seen JTI's but I've never seen a Golf front clip on a Jetta. That's neat, any more/color pictures of that MKIV?

Default Re: oh no a fender bender :( 3.3.12

So last night here in MD it rained like crazy, and my stupid self hydroplaned into curb over a sidewalk and hit a small tree. I was 3 blocks from my house -.- very unfortunate. Damage was mostly to drivers side. I noticed damage to fender,rims,tires,front bumper,headlights,hood. I check under that car the exhaust seems fine. I noticed a slight bend in the can, but hope that will not be a issue.(anyone have any experience?)

This morning I went out and check the car and looked under the hood noticed a good bend hope this won't be a problem. I filed my claim last night and am having the car towed with in the hour, so hope everything is gonna be a ok.

2 days before






The only positive things here
New hood finally get rid of 2 nasty dents
New front drivers side fender, when fenders were rolled chipping and rust followed(done professionally:confused)
New head lights current ones starting to fog up
No more rock chips in bumper/hood.
2 new rims original owner rashed them a great deal
