Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Accessport came in yesterday. Installed the stage 1 93 map today. Nice little difference. Car just feels more smooth now. Can't wait til next spring when I really start to get the good mods flowing.

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Bought some RA mudflaps. Not too sure if I really like the look. I'll be keeping them on for winter, not sure about full time.

Looks great, I am loving the small things that just make it look so much cleaner! Love the wagon for the functionality as well. Makes me want another one :)

Thanks, glad I ordered the R205 badges from you guys, they make a great difference. & I agree about the hatchbacks. It's perfect for what I need right now out of my car. I can fill up the car and take it to work and it's also as a fun quick daily driver.

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Just 2 random Instagram photos I took of my car. About to put on some winter tires this week.

Planning to order BC coilovers & Invidia Q300 exhaust within the next few weeks.
Also, trying to decide what wheels I want for the spring time. Right now I'm leaning towards some 18x9.5 Work VSXX.

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Got a few parts over the past week so figured I'd update this a little. Exhaust will be getting installed soon (hopefully). Coilovers will be waiting until Spring time when I get a new set of wheels.

Rain visors


BC BR Coilovers



P&L Exhaust

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

I must say I have always been a sedan fan on the sti, but the hatch has def grew on me. I think I need to find myself another sti as a daily driver, and this time around im gonna go for a used hatch!!

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

I was/am actually quite opposite. I was a big fan of the hatch, and something about the sedans didn't sit right with me. Now after seeing some of these beautiful ones posted on this site, I'm starting to debate if I made the right choice.

Either way, can't go wrong with whatever you choose as long as it's a Subaru.

Are you still shopping for wheels? I ordered some 18x9.5 +35 Work Meister S1R's in bronze a while back and I should be getting them very soon. However, I am now leaning towards a 10" wide wheel so I'd like to sell these instead of mounting them.

Hit me a PM if you're interested and we can discuss further.

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Installed the P&L exhaust today.... and this thing is loud. I'll keep it on for a few weeks to see if I get used to it. Otherwise, I'm taking it off and it's going up for sale

Re: My first Subaru. 2010 STI hatch - WRB

Just installed the rain guards. Probably the easiest install yet.






I'm thinking about picking up a short antenna... what do you guys recommend? Perrin Shorty antenna?
