Thank you, I am in the process of editing some pictures of the exhaust and some other items to get up here. Started a mod list as well.

New all purpose rims

OZ 18x9 Ultraleggera Black w/ 245/40ZR18 Continental ContiExtremeContact

Went with all-season over winter because I am going to have a dedicated track rim and want these tires to cover all year, including winter. So far I think they are very smooth tires with great grip for every day driving. The treadwear should be better as well than the DUnlops.

Unfortunately the tint has to be removed next weekend because of the local cops... I have had 15% on all of my cars since 1998 and have never had an issue until now. Oh well, the law is the law and thats the risk we take.

Yes, yes we did :)

I am growing bored with it honestly. It looks like I will be keeping it however, going stage 2 and coilovers and picking up an AP1 s2000 me thinks :)

Re: Law's 2008 AW STi - Pewaukee, WI

Great choice. I sold my AP1 to buy my STI and I greatly miss my AP1. Don't get me wrong, I love the STI and it is a much better daily driver, but I miss having as good of a driver's car as the S2000. I plan to get an AP2 when I pay my STI off.

I think we are going to have Julie's 08 Protuned my Jorge. He is doing some amazing things with SI-drive and it would make me feel better about the longevity of the engine. Otherwise I am pretty sure it will stay stock since mine is the race car. My car was tuned my Jorge and he does such a great job.

I end of behind the 08 a few mornings out of the week! I have thought about a protune but can probably live with the OTS perrin stage 2 tune once I get my DP on.

I was thinking AP2, but I really love the higher revving AP1 better (I have driven both). That and you can easily save 6-8k just going with an AP1 and still have a car with under 75k miles.

Hopefully I can find something in April.

I am sure you will be able to find a nice one. AP1s are getting very cheap. I sold mine with 80k on it with a lot of new parts and a few sets of wheels for 15k I think, and that was a year and a half ago. I did love my AP1, but I just think I want an AP2 next time, more for the look of it than anything else, I did love 9k rpm though.

I think the only time I see you on the way to work is when I am going to be later than I would like to be. I get there on time, but I cut it closer than I would like to.

Protuning it really only an extra $150-200 and it makes all the difference in the world in my mind.

Re: Law's 2008 AW STi - Pewaukee, WI

Yeah, it all depends on my cash level this summer. I might wait but the good ones seem harder to find these days.

I had my 03 WRX protuned Stage 2 and it was a huge difference. I have been impressed with my Perrin stage 1 ots tune though. It will eventually get protuned since I am hanging onto the car, when... who knows :) Maybe if I find time/money to start tracking cars again.

I need to fix the pictures in this thread of these days :)
