Those pics are amazing! I noticed you have the standard STI rims like I do but you have the fog lights. Did you get the fog lights installed at a later time? they look like they are HID lights, did they come standard with HIDs?

How do you like the sways so far? Iíve only gotten the steering rack bushings but sways are on the list as well as springs.

Great shots.
Sways are great and springs are great. I finally got my summer set up now Im loving it.

The wheels are sick. I also went the cheaper route on wheels. I knew I would get pissed and upset if I got nice wheels and got them dinged up and scratched. I do drive this car like a mo fo everywhere so I figure I wont get as mad if they get some scratches here and there. We shall see

I am working on pics now.... will have them up in a jiffy.

Looks great as always! its funny, sometimes the new springs/drop is noticeable in the pics, others not so much. I can't wait to get mine, but am wondering how the end product will really look (and perform of course).

I just added it after I purchased the car. I just highlighted or enhanced the color of the pic so it looks HID. I wish it really was HID. hahahaha.

Awesome car!

What do you think the weight of the Rota Rims is without tire?

Nice job on the car!!
My hold up on getting mods is the fear of voiding the factory warranty. I know SOA acknowledges mods to intake, exhaust, and suspensions...do you know if they are OK with flashing the ECU with AccessPort?

So far I just dropped in a K&N replacement filter in the air box...and I am getting 23.8mpg HWY!! (average 70-75mph)

My plan:
Cone intake (brand unsure)
AMR catted exhaust system
AccessPort stage II
Maybe coil overs....(debating with ride quality, curb clearance, wife's approval)

If I remember correctly I think Dan from wheeldude said 18lbs.
