Re: 2012 Subaru STi (FWDSUK)

Nice ride btw. I do hate to burst your bubble just flashing it with an AP just at stg1 for example voided the Warranty. I knowingly did it but I don't care. If the dealership you take it to is strict for warranty repairs your warranty is done.

Very nice car. I have the same wheels on mine.

After you put the 18x9.5 +38, did you find it changed your alignment at all?

Re: 480whp STi Build (FWDSUK)

A little update. Car is at IAG. Theyre getting ready to pull the heads. I just put the new wheels on.

Fitment is not 100% complete. They were just slapped on to remove the old wheels for a sell.

Car looks great, while its at IAG you should have them debadge the rear except for the STI logo, too much going on back there with decals.

Re: 480whp STi Build (FWDSUK)

So sick :tup: I wouldn't trust any other shop out there other than IAG to do extensive work on the car :D
Thanks man!! the wait is excruciating but it will be worth it. :D

Your car is shaping up to be quite a beast however I will admit I thought it looks pretty damn perfect with the Works. Look forward to seeing the progression of this build.

Nice ride sir :)

Noticed you have the HT Auto rear diffuser.

Am thinking of getting one myself.

Now that you have had it awhile, what are your thoughts on then piece?

Are you satisfied with the quality/look? How has it lasted over time?

If you could post some closer pics of the diffuser that would be awesome :)

Build quality is nice on it. I went with a single exit exhaust so if you have a quad it'll look a little better. I did hydro dip it in carbon fiber so thats why it has that glossy look. When you buy it from HT Autos, it will come in this flat black look. I love it and never had fear of breaking it. The only problem i had was it collects little rocks inside of the diffuser.

Heres a few pictures of the diffuser. :tup:

Awesome. Thank you for the feedback and additional pics.

I like what you did hydro dipping it in carbon fiber, whatever that means lol
(I will look into that, never heard of it before)

Was thinking about getting it painted obp to match; what you did, however, gives it a nice look.

How much did hydro dipping it cost you?

I know getting it painted to match will likely cost around $200

I paid i think around $120 for the hydro dip. Painting in my opinion will probably cheaper.
