Hey all, been on IWSTI for a few years but never did a build thread so here goes..:

My 2011 OBP STi Sedan
I started going the "track/autox" route..like everybody else...
(random event photos)

My autox attempt

Everybody was doing the autox thing, all the same mods were being installed as everyone else..so I decided to go a completely different route and went show..

Mod list:

It all started with bushings.. to keep the warranty, then an AP, cus y’know, it’s like putting just the tip in.. then…warranty is over rated…? uckfay it, I’m goin’ for broke!

Kinda hard to see but you get the idea

These do not emit coloured light, therefore technically they are legal. You will only see the red if light is shining INTO the projector as just the front of the cutoff shields are painted.
TSXR lenses, flattened squirrel finders and washer mod

JDM Rear Fog Light


Originally, I wanted black EVERYTHING. Including these:

But, price played a bit of a factor (Volks right?..sheesh), and after months of googling pics of black on black, I found that unless you get the EXACT same black as the body color it wont look perfect in my eyes. So I opted for the matte bronze instead. And in my opinion, it was the way to go.

I’ve also painted all the silver trim in the center black. I wanted more of a uniform color.

After tint:

The tint was a uckfaying nightmare. uckfay you Clear Choice Auto..

I like it loud..Orion amp shown here but that one kept overheating, so in went an Audison amp.
I know there’s more mods but I can’t remember them. Ill update as I remember..

Parts sitting around:

Custom diffuser from Evilsubiecustoms
A crying credit card

I’ve done all the work myself, minus the dyno tune and exhaust install. Had that done in one shot at Lightspeed because I don’t have a dyno. And the trunk setup was done by Powersource Performance.

Had a bit of a bum fight to get this plate authorized.. I put in the request and received a letter a few weeks later stating that they had denied my application because of what I wanted..Im assuming they thought it was some sort of sexual reference haha. I emailed the DMV twice and plead my case, assuring them of what the acronym stood for.. they eventually overturned their decision and sent me the plate!

And for shits and giggles..
