Have you noticed any vibrations with the project kics hub adapters? I want to buy them, but the ďSubaruĒ version lists a 56mm bore instead of the 56.1mm that we actually have. Iím sure it canít make too crazy of a difference, but I am paranoid about that kinda stuff

Nope none at all, it's been good so far. Yea that confused me as well when I was buying them, but it seems like just list the whole number instead of putting the ".1 etc" for any of the sizes. It fit just like any other hub ring with no issues.

Month-long ownership updates

Got my 18 BRZ about a month ago, and it wasnt long until I started throwing money at the car like a horny 18 year old soldier, at the strip club, straight out from basic.
Last week after a long wait on parts I ordered, I got a K&N drop filter, Perrin Inlet Hose, Perrin Rear Shifter Bushing (Amazing), Changed LSD/Trans fluids with Motul, Invidia Q300 catback with a HKS double Resonated Frontpipe, and finally got my OFT Stage One tune.

I decided that I can't know that I'm broke if I don't look into my bank account. Do I regret it? Absolutely not. I'm in love with this car.

Installed a fresh set of friction rings on the front. Got 3 years and a bunch of track days out of my stoptech 328x28 setup. Also installed new gopro mount, that mounts to the bar of the headrest. Seems pretty sturdy, hopefully the new angle works out better then mounting to the back window.

A friend of mine spent several hours across the past three days doing a full detail, paint correction, and a couple layers of ceramic on the car. I figured after a little more than 3 years of ownership, the car was due for a more thorough cleaning than I'm capable of. Especially important since it's a 24/7 outdoors, daily car so it gets shat on and whatnot every day regardless of how recently I've cleaned it/wiped it down.

I've got a couple different external parts going on tomorrow, which I'll share photos of later, but I took a few photos this evening while the car is still pristine:
