Hey guys... my name is Kevin and i currently own a 2010 Subaru STI in white.
This is my 3rd car and my previous cars were 2006 Mazda 3, 2008 Civic SI and now the STI. The Mazda 3 was my first car and was unfortunately automatic but it didn't stop me from modding the car. Then i saved up some money and sold the 3 and got the SI then started modding that as well but soon after i needed a power upgrade and turbo is always the way to go so i went with the STI.

Those wheels are going to look super good. What color lugs are you planning on doing with them? Just simple blacks?

Re: Subierooo's GRB.....Takata Green>>Defi>>HKS>>Alpine>>

The HKS exhaust is freakin awesome. Sounds amazing and no drone at all.

The CEs are 18x9 +35. These were the last set of brand new CEs in takata green that I could find. I was thinking to put it on first then see if I want to put spacers on.

I will be putting project kics R40 lug nuts and I don't know how to describe the color. Its not quite black and its kinda bronzish

How are the Hipermax? Too stiff for a daily? If you could share your experience as I'm in the market for a suspension setup.
Thanks.

The hipermax is a little too rough for everyday driving. I have the damper set to 20 turns (max is 30) and its already killing me. I'm waiting for my camber parts to come in so i can do some adjustment. Right now i'm rubbing a little bit in the back even after rolling my fenders so i have to set it to a little stiff

Do you think it'll be different on my car as it's an 06 STI, I mean, for the drop?

Re: Subierooo's GRB.....Takata Green>>Defi>>HKS>>Alpine>> (April 30th 2010)

Well the drop is really personal preference. I'm apparently in the lowest setting in the back and the front i can go a little tiny bit lower. I'm planning to raise the car back up another half an inch since its a little too low for me. If you want a little comfort do'nt get the sport version, and just get the hipermax 3

Your car is a 08 and the spring rate on them should be 12kg/10kg. For the 06, spring rates are 10kg/7kg, do you think it would make a little difference on the stiffeness ?

It will slightly make a diff but the 10k will still kinda kill ya. And i believe the 10k for you is inthe front and you're sitting in the front so you will feel every crack you drive on. Or just set your dampers softer.
