Finally after about 4 registration attempts I can post! (Stupid hotmail)

Hi guys my names Brodie and I've just purchased an 09 wrx.

No pics yet but here's a few details.

Current:

White
Leather
Sunroof
Full TBE (norm butler)
55,000 kms
Unsure who/if tuned. Will be throwing it on a dyno ASAP to check afr's.
Owner has sprayed stock wheels yellow which looks horrendous!

Have already ordered all the vinyl bits to replace the ugly chrome boot and window surrounds.

Will be ordering:

Rota titans 17x8 +42 in matte black
Ultrex lip
Ultrex VG
Epic springs
White line f+r sways

Mods will come gradually as I've just finished building a house and saving for Europe for xmas!!

Look forward to going on some cruises!

Welcome. Glad to hear the yellow wheels and chrome trims will be seeing the bin.

There are a few of G3 owners around here now, so plenty of build threads etc to get information from. Throw up some pictures when the horrendous wheels have been removed

Yeh mate had eagles plates. They traded it to a dealer before I could buy it private so ended up paying a bit more.

I saw the one you recently bought at Ozzie park as well

Welcome. One suggestion - get 18's!
17 inch aftermarket wheels look horrendously small in the G3 arches. Well done for choosing a sensible offset though.

17's are lighter but aside from looking a bit small they will limit your brake upgrade options if that is something u r considering down the line.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

I'm not really into the 18's look, I like a bit of chunky tire

Plus I'm getting black wheels without a lip so that always makes them look bigger as opposed to a dished wheel

The missus is an accountant, enough said.....



These are 17's and I think they look ok?

Let me know if pic didn't work
