Re: Flatbooost's AW 04 STi Mira *Proper Photoshoot Finally* (youre gonna wana peek th

So for the past couple weeks, ive been gathering parts and planning a new exterior look.

Ive already purchased

Rota Torques 18x9.5 +35 Titanium Chrome
3mm and 5mm spacers
OEM Wingless Trunk (still needs paint)
OEM WRX sideskirts
Bayson-r Aero guards (need paint)
Bayson-r Rear Strakes (need paint)
Mature Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser
Gold NRG Extended Lug Nuts

Now im just waiting on a few of those parts, still need to buy an OEM rear window vane spoiler, paint a few parts, buy tires and have all of this put together by sometime around mid july is the plan.

I think it would be fun to do it all at once, so thats what ive decided to do :D

Just more progress pictures, out of order for some of them.







Only thing that really turned me off to my 04 was the interior, the dash specifically. Thought about swapping it with an 05, deemed it not worth it. Decided to try plasi dipping trim pieces and making it a bit my own.

To be honest, I think it looks better then a 05 interior, more unique anyway.

Got a full screen head unit so the picture is now outdated.

Re: Flatbooost's AW 04 STi Mira *Completely new look* take a peek

Got the new bc's in and the new wheels on. slightly higher than before to improve function. drives like a dream wow, no rubbing, AT ALL, EVER :D

Ill write a review for the coilover setup i have later since its a bit different than most would order.

In the mean time, enjoy.

I will be adding small details back to the car soon to give it a little more character.

Car looks amazing! Everything you have done to it has been an improvement.

Where did you pick up the rear difuser?
