Default Not Another Bugeye!!!!

Hey everyone!

Well as a few of you would know, i have finally got my STi.

So to cut a long story short. I saw a article in fast fours 8yrs ago detailing subarus "new line of imprezas" and hiding amongst that was the 3 cars they test drove back to back: The RS.25, WRX & WRX STi.
Clearly the STi was the favourite. I remember looking at that article and saying - that looks shit hot, i want one.

Well 5 years pass, i find the magazine again. Realize how good it looked, found the RS2.5, bought one of those and now 3 and a bit years later i get an STi.

Anyways i picked it up from bunbury and drove it back on thursday night and this now is the first chance for me to upload some pics ( too busy driving :-p).
The Car has 137xxxkms on the clock.
Mods Are as follows:

3" Diff Back Exhaust with Cannon
GFB Blow Off Valve
Shiny Front Strut Brace
J Style Tuning Silver Carbon Bonnet Struts






The 2 Bugs



Alrighty, So plans for the bug.

Near Future:
Front and Rear Whiteline Sway Bars
Anti Lift kit
Lowered Springs
New Stereo
Varex Muffler
ECUDatascan
CAI
Powdercoat Rims In White
Drive Lots And Lots.

Not So Near Future:
New Coilovers
3"TBE
18" Rims & Use 17"s as track rims.
Slotted Rotors - Front & Rear
Tune

Drive Lots and lots.

Remove orange bits and replace with clear/silver and delete the front orange reflectors, looks heaps better
