Shoutout to @F R YESS for the TRD Trunk Mat!

Been searching for this part for the longest time.
It may not be much but it's the little things for me

Arrow UPDATE

Happy New Year!

Got a couple things for Christmas this year



TRD Dash Panel

I received a few gift cards and was able to buy myself a little Christmas gift.
I think the TRD Dash Panel goes really well with the other TRD parts I have in the interior.
Really nice quality and it makes the interior much better imo.
I still find it funny that I got this from a Toyota dealership, shipped in a Toyota/Lexus box, and
has TRD on it but has Subaru stamped on the inside.











OLM "Nur Spec" Style Rear Bumper Lip

I've been wanting to get the Nur Spec rear but can't justify spending $700+(shipping not included).
My girlfriend surprised me with the OLM rear kit that I've been wanting for the longest time.
I believe I mentioned it to her maybe a couple times.
The rear is definitely my favorite part of the car hands down.
She also helped install it with me. I'd say I'm a pretty lucky guy.

Arrow UPDATE

Located a set of dream wheels that I've wanted since the beginning of this build! (/◕ヮ◕)/

RAYS Volk TE37 OG 18x9.5 +36 5x100 (Bronze)
Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 255/35/18

I believe there are <10 sets world wide in this spec. Trying to find this set was somewhat close to impossible.

They were discontinued for quite a while and I was close to giving up on them.
Been checking my usual sources of parts for years: FB, forums, yahoo auctions, etc.
However, by the grace of the car gods, these came up in my local FB group.

Definitely a serendipitous encounter.

Ain't she a beaut (づ ̄  ̄)づ

I was in a similar position as you. I had always dreamed of getting a set of bronze anodized TE37s. I got the car in July 2019 and by that time System had sold out of the 18x9.5 +36 OG bronze TE37s. I thought I would never be able to get a set.

I found a brand new set still available on Import Monster out of Australia. They claim to have had 5 sets of OG bronze TE37s in these specs. I think System claims to have had 10 sets, so there are at least 15 sets total in existence.

I went with 245/35 instead of 255s like you. I was worried the 255s would poke a bit. I think I will probably go up to 255s for my next set.

What did you do with your TC105n set?

Ah, thank you for the correction. System Motorsports is not that far from where I am. Their website states it's an exclusive set but I guess it isn't?

The wheels did come with 245/35 when I got them. Not a big fan of stretched tires even though 245/35 isn't that bad. Michelins tend to run a bit smaller than what they claim, so running 255 wasn't too much of a worry.

Showed a few friends and they asked the same thing, "So what about your TC105N's?" They were sold before I even put the TE's on.

Your car looks amazing!

System Motorsports claim the 'System Spec' is exclusive to them. I was under that impression as well until I got in touch with Import Monster. Maybe the 18x9.5 +36 batch was exclusive to System in the US?

LOL, I was going to inquire about taking your old TC105ns off your hands! We clearly have similar tastes. There is also one more user on these forums with the same wheels, @Z06ZN6.

Your car looks great too! Love those Brembos!

I was so stoked that these were in my local area, about 10 mins away from where I live. Also turns out, the seller and I have mutual friends, which made him more than happy to sell me these wheels among the 5-10 others interested.

I've imported my front lip and side skirts straight from Japan and the prices were outrageous. I can't imagine what the shipping costs were to get the wheels from Australia to you.

The brembos were also a serendipitous encounter. Found them via local FB group. Always wanted a BBK but also wanted something OEM; definitely checked both boxes on that.

Nice wheels and definitely difficult to source (only second hand i believe) due to discontinuation . I am one of the originals that purchased back in May 2018 for this TE37 OG spec from System Motorsports and still have my set even though i don't drive the car anymore. I should've also purchased the +22 but i slept lol. Never parting ways as the wheels are going down with me . I am running them on 265's squared
