got the prodrives installed. its running 245/40/18 DWS06.

i pulled my back in the process though... i was done with only once side of the car. now limping like an old fart.
i didnt injure my back while i was handling the wheels...but when i went to picked up my little 3lbs air pump.

my wife and kids helped me install the other side; even cleaned the STI wheels and stacked them up on my tire dolly.

despite the limp i was determined to go out on a test drive.
will run these for a few months and as soon as temps are over 50F going to run the STI wheels and tires.

50F? no today it's like 35F. lol

yep, xpel ultimate for the bumper. the WRX's nose is pretty high so i decided to just to get the bumper done for now. i might do the hood later on my own, but too cold to do it in my non-heated garage at the moment. tint is getting applied today as well. im just hoping my car dont get dinged while parked at their shop..

if the guy does well, going to bring my G in later this Spring to get her tinted too.

I usually tint cars the first month I own them. Wherever you live it must be cold, definitely not here in Florida. I have one of those half bras on my 370z and I have had one or two rocks sneak past the line and chip the paint! I will not make that mistake with the STI, it has to have a full bra covering the entire hood!

Well, show us some pics whenever you get time!

i got the clearbra and tint done yesterday. guy did great. i need to wait for it to dry a few more days before i wash the car, then ill take some snaps. it's about 30F this week where im at going up to maybe upper 40's by the weekend.. but then going back down for more snow next week.

next on the list are matte black stainless plate frames coming in tomorrow, hopefully.. followed by getting a blendmount for my V1. im still thinking about getting some sort of cradle for my iphone6s. the HK stereo sounds decent and nav is convenient, but the whole starlink system is slow and meh.. id still get the nav and HK if i was to buy again, but if you're thinking about upgrading the stereo, might as well just get the base STI and a nice cradle for your phone.

alright, placed order for the blend mount and mirror wire thingie for my V1.

also got a KENU sp? phone mount thing for the vent on order. while the HK sounds fine, starlink imho is a pos and i rather just have my iphone6s out to do my calendar appointments, quick tasks like check weather radar, and go through music albums.

Time for those pics, we had a great weekend here, cant belive this week is going to be March and the rumors of any new changes will be known by the NY Auto show at the end of the month. Very stoked, I will have to get my order in ASAP. Your out there modding up a storm and I just ordered my baby seat for our future son for my car, a Recaro baby seat haha It should be here in a few days but with the Babies R Us massive sale, we just traded in a 12 dollar used baby thing and got 30% off of anything new. They had to order it as they don't carry Recaro in stores but super pumped, got it in blue too

thats cool. sold our recaro young sports since our kids out grew them, and the younger kid is almost big enough to out grow his recaro vivo booster.

definitely get the infant carrier stroller. those things are SUPER handy. just locks into the stroller like it does in the reverse facing infant seat base for your car.

i opened up the STI a little more this weekend (still break-in mode) and this thing is fun to drive!

hope to get my blend mount today.

I can't find a seller who has a smallish STI decal for my center caps. i see dat there are folks selling 56mm metal caps but those are too big. i just want a red "STI" sticker about 40mm in width since the cap is 54mm diameter. but even without the decals the wheels look SO much better with the plain black caps vs the prodrive silver caps.
