Good choice. One of the lightest 17x8 wheel available. Did you buy another set of Primacy HP? or just swapping over the stock ones?

Just gonna swap over the stock ones. No point in paying for a tyres with a brand new car when your not going to use the tyres. It will be a good litmus test to discern how easy it is to break traction with the 215's(this being my 1st RWD car)

I'll be switching up to the Pilot Super Sports when the Primacy HP's wear out though. Maybe go up to a 225 width.

OK, good. I wouldn't recommend the HP when the time comes for replacements since there are so many better options for the price.

You'll definitely want to go up to 225s. 215 is already a little stretched on an 8" wide wheel.

Missed uploading some other pics. This is the hub centric ring for the WedsSport TC105N's

56.1mm bore, AL hub centric ring, fitment


Slowly planning other mods..

Cosmetic
Side Vent (in DGM aka 61K)


SCION Front Badge


FiveAxis Rear Spoiler(in DGM aka 61K)



Mechanical
TRD 86 Tower Bar




TRD Door Stabilizer(14000 JPY = $174.45 AUD)


CUSCO Oil/Air Separator (9,000 JPY = $112.20 AUD)


TRD Sports Air Filter


TOP SECRET Bonnet Damper

Hopefully PF will get back with me for prices for the Mechanical stuff. Trying to keep each order under $1,000 AUD to avoid GST.

If you don't kind me asking, why the Scion badge? Scion seems to be fairly looked down on in the States (just look at all those badge swap threads!); is it cool in Australia?

And I'm sure some US guy would love to trade you Scion badges for your Toyota ones...

I don't think the majority of people here in Australia are even aware of the brand Scion. I was aware of the brand but did not know it was some what affiliated with Toyota though.

I'm thinking of getting a Scion badge because there aren't any Scions here in Australia. A minor exception is the Scion xB which they call the "Toyota Rukus" here.

If people ask me, "what car is this?". I could just say, "Oh.. its the new _Scion BRZ_" trololol

I'd probably put the SCION badge on the BACK though since I will probably be removing the OEM bootlid spoiler and replacing it with the SCION/PINK STI/TOYOTA badge(honestly haven't 100% decided what badge to go with yet, but Scion badge would definitely be amusing) and then getting it repainted(if the badge holes don't match up) - just less hassle with the badge on the back I think.

w00t! Just got an email back from PF

"For the badges, unfortunately we couldn’t find any of those oval types in your attached pictures in current TRD/STI product range…
Also for the Side Vent, unless you can specify the details of the items such as brand name, part number, etc…, it will be too hard for us to locate it. If you are after Subaru/Toyota OEM parts, we can quote them only if you have exact OEM part numbers for the parts you are after.

Below is price information for the other parts that you are after.

CUSCO Oil/Air Separator (9,000 JPY = $112.20 AUD)
STI Oil Filter (Part Number: ST152084S000): 3200Yen(= $40.0244 AUD)
STI Oil Filler Cap: --- Please specify part number for this as we couldn’t find it in current STI parts catalogue.
STI Radiator Cap (Part Number: ST4511355010): 4200Yen --- Please note STI has not been confirmed weather this item fits BRZ or not. (= $52.528 AUD)
TRD Front Strut Tower Bar to suit Toyota 86 (Part Number: MS324-18001): 28000Yen(= $350.186 AUD)
TRD Door Stabilizers (Part Number: MS304-18001): 14000Yen(= $175.105 AUD)
TRD Sports Air Filter to suit 86 (Part Number: MS155-00009): 8400Yen(= $105.063 AUD)
TRD Member Brace Set to suit 86 (Part Number: MS300-18001): 55300Yen(= $691.62 AUD)
TOP SECRET Bonnet Damper to suit 86/BRZ: 24800Yen( =$310.171 AUD)
"


Just need to find out a PN for that oil filler cap.

Dude, I'd be glad to trade you Scion badges for Toyota badges!

Must say though, those pink oil filters and caps are pretty sweet lookin', even though they probably have no advantage over regular black Subaru ones right?
