Howdy nice looking ride I could see how the colour grows on you just after 5 minutes of reading through the thread and looking at pictures it decidedly grew on me haha.

Thank you good sir and I shall! Many goodies to come, I think one of my road blocks will be the IPT Trans upgrade, I'd do the six speeds of fun like you but I already sold mine off of my STi to a fellow forester owner on here... Love the work on yours as well as I'm sure we all do! :)

Thanks brother. Honestly I have always wanted a built auto to DD and race. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

HIDs installed!




Now, before anybody tells me how stupid it is to install HIDs, just stop yourself because I don't care what you think, I like them, i think they look nice, i will deal with the good and bad that comes with them and my lenses are adjusted so I don't become that blinding ******* on the road.

Now that is said... There will be more suspension goodies coming soon :)
