Unfortunately, I don't have a garage either but really, you can do it without a garage.

Unless you are running a square neutral alignment it's a non issue.

Wow oddmanout were actually quite rude when I told them you don't need to remove fender pieces or wheels like you do on sti's and he's still charging the same fee, so I definitely won't be funneling 95$ an hour plus supplies for an hour and a half with these guys. If anyone wants to lend a garage and some advice/helping hand I'd be happy to pay a cheaper fee.

With just springs it is hard to fit (need camber bolts right?) that is all. I think FRSbaby is running coils. He should be ok to buy those beauties.

but you are right the first time. I ordered some rebuilt STI Brembos for my fronts - so now I need to upgrade rotors, pads, rims and wheels! (plus lugs, hence the number jump)

I needed bigger wheels anyway, hoping to order an AVO kit this winter.
Let me know before you jump on the AVO Kit, maybe we can get a better deal on two and shipping

Hey guys, thanks to @SkAsphalt I have found someone to paint rims, I plan on buying new rims in the summer so I was going to pain my stock rims to drive around in as soon as the snow melts then purchase new winter tires for next year in 17" to try them out since my winters will be 3 years old after this year.

Do you guys think i should go all black or try out a colour? I saw a bunch of pictures of black cars with gold colour rims, but I feel like some people hold a stigma against gold rims, what do you guys think?

Regina Wheel Works does awesome powder coating, they're located in White City. That's where I'll be taking my stock rims to get done

Black would look great on lighter painted cars. Bronze would look great on your black. I wouldn't go any darker than graphite or gun metal with your paint

I just dont like the spoke pattern with colour, thats why I wanted it black initially, for buying rims I will most likely go gun metal.

Got these today! I always feel like I've won a prize when I see a parcel left behind in my front porch, because that means NO brokerage!! In fact I've never had any brokerage charges ever with BaysonR

Very happy with the skirts, they came packaged in a huge 1ft x 1ft x 7ft box. They are identical material to that used in their matching rear spats and came with all installation hardware as usual. Unfortunately they won't get installed until spring, but the goods news is no drilling required!

No they will not void your warranty, unless of course your service dept. can prove that your mod caused a specific failure.

They do frown upon mods and may refuse you service or warranty coverage if they decide to be assholes. It's hit and miss, some service departments are not as touchy as others.

An intake is easy enough to remove if you need to go in for service for a specific problem. If your just going in for regular maintenance, I wouldn't worry about it.
Pulley is questionable on whether it's even worth the investment, same can be said for aftermarket intake.

Best mods on our cars are a drop-in filter with stock intake and a tune. Headers and catback would also net you some nice gains.

What could I add to my TRD system. I figure there's no point in removing it since I already paid for it. And do you mean the K&N drop in filter? I read that the pulley added noticeable throttle response. But then again I enjoy mods that increase driveability over power. I'm all new to modding so thanks for the advice guys!
