08 STi - Tanabe CBE + invidia catted downpipe on Vimeo


NEW PICS!!!!!

I took these last weekend.








































































I recently bought a beater~95 miata and it has kept my attention away from the subie.

Anyway, here are some rig shots I did for BC racing.


\

Couple print ads - BC racing and falken tires. I took both shots, I edited the BC racing photo and Falken post processed their ad.






my "new" beater - black 95 miata:
















IWSTI license plate frame =D

here's my old 95 miata - RIP







I took a few pics yesterday with Archie...AGAIN! :lol:






















some pics I took last Sunday.








I went for a cruise and took more pics of my tanabe CBE :)

















I finally was able to take some pics of my Tanabe CBE. I test fitted for them a couple of weeks ago and I received this CBE in return. I can now hear the boxer rumble but it still is quiet. I even passed a cop on the freeway and he didn't even looked at me :lol: I'll try to post sound clips when I get a hold of a decent video cam.

Re: Luis3rd's 2008 AW STi

I first saw an 08 STi in LA autoshow last November 2007 and fell in love with it. I finally decided to get an STi when I bought the Rally armor mudflaps 2 weeks prior to getting the car :lol:

I used to have a 02 civic SI but since it already had 105xxx miles, it's about time to upgrade.



Anyway, here are some pix the day I got the car.
12May2008

I still miss my old EP3.



More pix :D





17May2008 - Venture shield clear bra and RA UR flaps installed







21May2008 - I tried to install Blue Bat's red overlays with cutout but I messed it up. I'm still waiting for my new film.


I bought a 10yd roll of red film and got it right :D


parklights turned on;


brake lights;


23May2008 - OEM foglights installed








23July2008 - hella supertones




26July2008 - installed bc racing coilovers + whiteline rear camber bushings








23Aug2008 - painted TMIC




29Sept2008 - rig shots/v-limited replica

canon 135L f2.0 - pix 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15
canon 10-22 - pix 11, 12, 16, 17

Re: Luis3rd's 2008 AW STi

wow really? I thought surely you were in the 1.4-1.8 range with the field of view you achieved on for example the shot of the STI embroidery in the seats.

I should be able to obtain those numbers I gotta try it again ;)

Thanks!

I think you mean "depth of field." Sorry! Had to be a smart ass... :D But I agree, those look more like 1.4-1.8! Great pics!

thanks jimmy, I'm planning to get an accessport soon - I'm just waiting for the wife's approval :rofl: I'm also thinking of getting the BC coilovers.

I was finally able to install my red tailights film a couple of weeks ago but I still need to redo it coz they have 7281972891 bubbles.


Very nice, how hard was it to fit the oem fog lights on the car?
I had the dealer install it for me because I ordered them when I bought the car. It shouldn't be that hard since you can remove the front bumper in less than 10 minutes. The tricky part is running the wires into the dash (i'm not sure, might be easy too). The turn signal/headlights switch has to be replaced with the one that came with the foglight kit.
