Talking Fresh as Fresh can get

Hey everyone! I'm new! I bought my BRZ almost a month ago broke 1k a week and a half ago. I love everything about it. I have read as much of the posts on here as I can for information so I figured it was time I start talking

Tinted today! 35% MD legal back and sides. Ordered 2" perrin stubby antenna, and LED lights (interior and license place) today.

I'm torn on if I should Debadge and go clear on my side markers. Before and after pics would be awesome. Also I would love to meet up and see some of the BRZ/FR-S mods in person. Pics just don't do our ladies justice. Exhaust in particular! Perhaps this weekend at the Annapolis Cars and Coffee???

Thanks Everyone!

How are you working around the window rolling up and down automatically with the door? I fear that would damage the tint while it's still drying.

And debadging is fantastic. Just did mine. Really cleans up the rear. Now I just need my Tom's lights and GT86 tips to get here to finish it off.

Clear corners - Every car for the last decade has been black and I smoked or color-matched the sidemarkers. But the clears look so good on WRB. I think I would want black sidemarkers with a black BRZ.

Not BRZ-related but maybe this will help show how good black sidemarkers look on a black car. This is my previous ride.

I talked about this to the shop. They were cool about it and said there were a couple of cars out there like that. Told me to bring it back in 3 days and he will check it out. If it starts bubbling in those areas he will strip it and replace (no charge).

Black on black looks great!

I think I'll be debadging later

If you only did the 35% for legal reasons, then I hope you had 40% put in vice 35% or its already too dark to pass the scanner. I did the same thing though and haven't had any issues. ^_^

@jaylion1 I heard this about 35 minutes after I picked it up! Guess I'll just hope for the best. Until it gets some more love from my wallet (which is empty at current time) and has stock exhaust I don't think I will have any trouble.
@TheseColorsDontRun $174 with a can of tint safe glass cleaner for $5 extra
@Marcoscrdo I live in Annapolis, MD however I grew up in MoCo. Heading to Fitzgerald in Gaithersburg today to pick up my plates in about 20 minutes (be there around 2:30)
@Darryljr11 Yes'sir right on the water. I'll be in Starbucks right there by 7:30am wearing Redskins gear haha.

I'm having a hard time finding good video/audio of the various UEL header choices out there. I've seen some beautifully TIG'd headers on the forum, but the only videos I've seen aren't matched up with a Perrin full exhaust or any of the other bassy STI-like options. My goal is to get my car sounding like my 05 STI. How does the full Borla sound?
