So here's the story so far.

This is my 5th car and 3rd Subaru.
I started small and with 90s cars
93 Nissan Sentra
92 Honda Civic
95 Legacy L with AWD
06 Subaru Outback Sedan
17 Subaru BRZ Limited


I drove from south central PA to NJ (which I will not do again, no offense people from NJ).
This was a dealer demo car but never registered, I am its first owner. Even got a Subaru extended warranty for 8 years.

The next day.


First Mod, LED reverse lights I saved from my outback.



Also gotta rep the #SubaruAmbassadors, I’ve been with them since May of 2015.


Second Mod - Ordered a Green Air Filter as I have ran them in all of my Subarus.


Registration came in so bring back my old plate. WRXLESS is back!!!


Third Mod - Sound Generator Delete. Why is this needed. It's not. A quick stop to Lowes to get some caps to plug it up till I can get an intake thanks to a guide I found on here.



Forth and fifth mod. LEDs everywhere (minus and sidemarkers) and installed a Perrin trunk handle




Just another pic, Sun was on the wrong side to make this epic.

You get an ATTABOY for removing the noise generator right away.

Looking good so far, keep it up!

Thanks @Clipdat.

Buddy of mine got me a new car gift, he finally caught up with me today.



My Green Filter didnt come with stickers so I reached out to them.
Starting my sticker collection.

I do plan to add other Perrin parts aside from the trunk handle.

Updated engine bay shot (5/16)

Moved my 3rd brake light with the goal to get some more visibility out the rear window. Not sure why the factory one is on stilts.

Wired up the new light.


Edit: Next day

Neat night shots. Also, windows are tinted.
