BRZ STi x TRD "BSTiRDized"

Proud of Boxer

I envisioned modding with an OEM+ theme. Though it currently doesn't look stock-ish, it stays true to having primarily OEM (Subaru, Toyota, STI, TRD) mods with a few OEM-related mods (TWS wheels from TRD Griffon 86, Edelbrock which supercharges TRD edition Toyotas and Toyota-powered Lotuses from the factory).

Initial D viewings with buddies kept us sane through the rigors of college. As an ode to the anime, I took this spiritual successor to the AE86 and applied the blue/gold WRX STi scheme from Bunta's car. Toyota + Subaru = 1 + 1 = 3

The STi bar seems to be a blanket design adapted across all Subaru cars. I wanted a bar designed specifically for this car from scratch without added weight of unecessary material (particularly in the mounting). TRD's lightweight optimized design does just that. And a bit of LFA bleeds into the CF choice of material.

I love almost everything about this car. The stickers however just don't fit with my tastes. It adds a little bit of tacky to an otherwise super clean, OEM build.
