Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

spl stage spec suspension? need to drop it like its hot.....

wish I could find a DGM. I spent 4 hours cleaning and polishing my car and the swirls are still there!!!!!
Stock suspension, I'm waiting on paikman to take off his coils and give them to me. ;)

I have done the same, I don't know what is up with the paint on these cars. I detail cars and I did a full polish on mine a few weeks ago to get rid of the holograming on the doors. The scratches and swirls came out, but not the holograms. I'm going to have to do it again, it seems it's only on the doors, nothing on the fenders or bumpers.

OMG!!! What a beautiful car!
Thanks

whats the specs on those wheels?
I hate you.

Advan RS 18x9 +29, stock STI tires

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Yeh i know, can't wait to get this car lowered some.

what polish do you use? Im thinkin I'll try the scratch x crap and see if I can get the swirls off with that. I haven't even had a chance to wax the ish because the swirls are so bad.

damn black cars.....

I used SIP and 106fa (Menzerna products), I might just have to work it in longer but it still looks terrible. You gotta get some wax on it!

There is a member on the forums here that will be or is selling it. I'll have to check on that and send him some business. Wax will still protect the paint and give you a little protection.

When you're in the need of a detailer, let me know. :) I've done about 20 or so cars from NASIOC.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Installed Perrin 22mm RSB, White Line 22mm FSB, Magna Flow catback since my last update. The tail lights are pretty faded, I intend to respray them in the next month or so.




You can see how faded the tails are here.

Looks great Matt! I'd love to hear the exhaust one day if you're still working in the Chantilly area.
