Chuckls' BRZ tS

Figured I'd make one of these. I don't do a whole lotta mods, but I do take a fair amount of racing / trips!

Picked it up Aug 2018 from Florence Kentucky. I am the only owner of it. Ended up being #086/500, so lucky me.

Currently it's at almost 30k miles. I've taken it to Florida. Then to the Dragon, back to florida, and then back to Indiana. Lots of highway miles.

First mods were a GReddy EvoGT catback and tail light vinyl.


Then the VLANDs were introduced to the US. First set of smoked.



Installed a Dezod Motorsports catback and then Moved to Tampa Florida in February 2019 and had the car ceramic coated.



Installed the Verus Engineering front canards/rear diffuser/Slanted Hood Louvers



Took a trip to the Tail of the Dragon for Boxer Takeover, where I met up with another tS owner.

Moved back to Indiana because Florida sucked (June 2019)

Installed some Fortune Auto 500 series coilovers as well as the Verus Engineering front splitter and endplates.



Car in its current form.




Installed a set of JDM Toms tail lights:

Picked up the BRZ STi exhaust that seems to be rather uncommon in the USA

Your car looks great. I’ve got the STI axle back on my car, looks and sounds pretty good. It has 13% lower back pressure apparently, but I didn’t notice any difference.

PS - I saw in later shots you have different wheels. What are they?
