[Latest updates]
I've decided to spruce up the journal again, this time focusing on organization and a generally more pleasant place to be. One of the reasons I haven't updated this in several months is because of how terribly unorganized it was, gave me a headache just to look at. Hopefully this update fixes that.

Shortly following the re-organization update I'll be posting the results of the installed performance items and the first day at the track with the 08.

So I've wanted to do this since I picked up the car May 31st, but I just never got around to it, til now. Here we go..

Intro:

This is my first subie, 5th car over all. So far I'm really lovin' the car, I'm probably one of the many '08 owners that never thought they'd ever get a wagon, but here we are! At this point I've owned the car for slightly over a month now, and the car was completely stock for probably a week. I tend to like to 'personalize' my cars however possible, and that usually means at least one ore two mods, subtle or other wise. I never really kept the car stock long enough to take pics, so I'll just start with the first few mods. I did a good deal of lurking and decided I liked the look of the 'pin strip' lip stick look on the front grill, but I couldn't get the strip on straight for the life of me, but my girlfriend didn't seem to have any trouble! Next, I really decided I didn't like the busy badge look on the rear so I removed all badges except the sti.

Anyways, pics as of this point:









Since then, I had 30% tint all around and a clear bra installed. Here she is as she stands now:











Here's a list of current mods/changes:

Factory options:
STI short shifter
iPod connector
Cargo Tray
Autodim mirror/compass

Exterior:
Front grill pin strip
Debadged
30% tint all around
Full clear bra on bumper/hood, partial fender

Interior:
Hardwired Valentine1
Kenwood DNX8120
Kicker components fronts
Kicker Mid-bass rears
Kicker amp
Kartboy shift knob
Defi Racer Red boost gauge

Performance:
Cobb APv2 Stage 1 ACN91


And.. I have these sitting in the living room:




Near future plans ( 3-6 months):
KW v3 clubsports
Brake pad/rotors/SS lines all around ( haven't decided on setup)
Cobb downpipe
Perrin EL header
Perrin CBE
Water/meth injection
Tune at GST



That's it for now! Hopefully I'll post updates with each major addition.


And just for reference, here's a quick list of past cars and their major mods:
94 Prelude -
Jackson Racing Supercharger
Crower stage 2 cams
Crower dual valve springs
Supertech titanium retainers
Supertech flat valves
Stage 2 port/polish
~260FWHP

94 RX-7
T04S single turbo conversion + all supporting mods
~380RWHP @ 14psi before *BOOM*

2007 RX-8
Intake/cat/exhaust
Endless 6pot calipers
Endless/zeal Function X coilovers
Tanabe front/rear sway bars
Mazdaspeed front/rear strut bars
18x8.5/18x9.5 Volk racing CE28's

Pic of last car:



Welp, that's all for now! Thanks for looking!

Those wheels go well with your car. After seeing what you have done with your last couple of cars, I look foward to seeing the outcome of the GRB.
