Introduction and Previous Vehicles


I sold my 2015 STi at the end of 2016 and have regretted every second of it. I have had numerous vehicles before and after, but the Subaru was my favorite of them all. Which leads me to this thread. I have purchased a brand new 2018 leftover from my local dealer and got a great deal on it. Follow along the build and see where this one takes us. It is going to be slow for a while until I decide exactly which route I am taking this time around.

New picture after some exterior product installs! Still need to put on my rear aero splash guards that I bought with the car, but I am happy with how it sits for now.

July 2019 Update

Picked up a set of used (one month) MAPerformance axleback muffler deletes from one of my friends 2018 WRX. He is parting out and trading it in. Couldn’t pass up the deal for some sound change on the car. I’ll get my nameless exhaust soon enough but this should hold me over until then.

November 2019 Update

As I imagined, I enjoyed the car too much this summer to go through with my intentions of building into a lifted/rally looking STi. I have changed the build title and updated the current expectations for the modifications list. It is going to be my fun weekend and track car. It is stored away for the winter in my garage as we speak. I have to change the oil still and I have a few parts I am going to be ordering this weekend to install as well. Should be some more pictures soon.
