Default Mikes '12 OBP Limited - Long overdue update....426whp/412wtq

My name is Mike, and I bought my '12 STi Limited in May from Subaru of Gwinett outside of Atlanta. I live in Charleston, SC, and this was the closest STi in the color and features I wanted, but it was totally worth the drive. This is my DD, so for now my goal is to slowly upgrade the suspension, then wheels/tires, and finally save a bunch of money for power upgrades down the road a bit. I am open to suggestions, and am still very new to working on my own car, but thusfar I have done everything myself (except for the tint). When it comes time to power mods, I will more than likely take it to a pro shop to install and subsequently tune.

That's sick dude. Nice color scheme. Your car looks really good. The black SI knob is bad ass. Does that just snap over the current one? What'd you pay for the shifter and ebrake boots? I'm seeing them on rallysportdirect for close to 70 bucks each!!!! OUCH!!!

Thanks man, I appreciate it! It just sits right on top of the stock one, and has a couple adhesive pads on the inside to make it stay put. The boots were not cheap, that's for sure, lol. I had a bunch of deployment money saved up, and just went for it.
