Hello, my name is Phillip and I am currently living in Minnesota. I currently am a teacher teaching at a small charter school. I own a 2005 impreza sti. I bought it on 11/03/2015. When I bought the car, it was in pretty rough shape. Dead shocks, paint chip, scratches, and some rust in places where I didn't even notice until a year after. When I bought the car, it came with a wrx trunk and spoiler and was on a 93 octane stage 2 tune on open source I believe. First things I did was bought some BC coilovers, an accessport (which hasn't even been taken out of the box yet), some new spark plugs, and received a sti spoiler for Christmas. It sat like that for the past 2 years and finally this year I bought some rims and I was able to save enough for a full body restoration and repaint. Although I loved black, I hated the fact that it was impossible to keep clean. I decided to go with a super red since it was the next color I like and I also wanted to look a little different from the subies in MN. The plan for the next few years is to slowly collect parts to prep for power.

Mod list

power:
Catless Invidia Down pipe
Spt short ram
Exhaust (forgot what brand)
stage 2 93 octane tune

Suspension:
BC Coilovers
Rims

Future mods:
Not quite sure yet and am still researching and saving!!
