Volk SL's are hot on PBP but Volks in general are expensive. Most expensive wheels I've ever owned were Vossens 20's that ran me about 2g's without tires. Volks are like 3g's and no tires heh. I'm still waiting to hear back from my salesman and see what they will give me for my trade in, I'm so ready to get into an STi.

I'd definitely like to go with all suspension mods at first since I won't be able to take advantage of engine mods unless I go to the track etc.

Naw, the base '11 doesn't have auto climate control. TBH I didn't look at the differences between the base and the sport tech package close enough. Had I known I wouldn't get fog lights, HIDs, and auto climate control I probably would have gone for the sport tech package instead.
*gasp* NO HID's? i thought those were standard, PERIOD. looks like it'll be sport tech for me then. i'd like the basic creature comforts like HID's, fogs, auto climate control, a half decent stereo and a sunroof (basically everything my 05 wrx has in it stock) plus the car, i dont want the BBS wheels or the leather.

Yeah, I think the think the things that bug me the most about this car are the lack of heated mirrors, motorized seat adjustment, and HIDs/fogs. I knew I wouldn't be getting a sunroof and nav but I didn't really pay attention to the other options

Does anyone know how much of an improvement coilovers are over the RCEs? I'm thinking of delaying the other suspension mods so I can put coilovers on instead.

Really depends on what you use them for. I have coilovers but have never messed with the height after I put them on and got it at the height I wanted. I mess with damper settings every once in awhile but that's about it.

I guess if you don't plan on tracking or autocrossing etc .. coils are probably not worth spending the money on. But that's my opinion.

ive always been on the fence about coils....especially living in NEPA with these winters....hard to get that perfect drop without coils too at the same time.

When I was buying mine there weren't any PBP at any of the local dealerships so I had the fleet manager from my dad's company get me one from the east coast. Sticker price was around 38k and then I spent around 3k worth of options + the installation fee.

I'm thinking of going back to my original choice for springs, Tanabe DF210.



I like the look, but I can't find much info on the ride quality.

edit: Oh, btw, just found this fog light kit for 2011. Ordered the kit and I'm going to order a HID conversion kit from import image.
