ztrevs 2017 BRZ Build

Hey guys! Super excited to be finally putting out a detailed build of my BRZ.
Took delivery of it Sep 2016, sitting at 10,000 KMs as of posting.

The goals I have are simple, I'd be breaking it down into phases:

2017 - Phase I: Aesthetics

My goal for this year was just to get the car how I wanted it to look. Now that I'm super happy with it, 2018 is the big year!





Current Mod List:

Cosmetic/Function:

LED Dome Lights
LED Reverse Lights
Trunk LED Lights
Door Sill LED Lights
License Plate LED Lights
Sidemarker LED Lights

JDM Clear Side Markers
JDM Frameless Rearview Mirror
BaysonR STI Replica Front Lip

JDM Exhaust Tips
Rallyarmor Mud Flaps


Performance:
K&N Drop in Air Filter

Exterior/Body:
Opti-Coat Pro Ceramic Coating (OCG Detailing)
Grimmspeed Hood Damper Kit
Titanium Bronze/Blue Shift Knob

Wheels & Tires:
Work Emotion D9R 18x9.5 +38
Michelin Pilot Super Sports 245/35/18


Suspension:
Greddy x KW Coilovers

2018 - Phase II: Function and Performance

I missed out on tracking season in 2017 so I will be making some changes here and there to get better power and handling!



Current Mod List:
Tomei Expreme UEL Headers
Open Flash Tablet V2
Perrin 2.5 Resonated Catback
Volks TE37SL 17x9.5 +36 Double Pressed Black
Hankook RS4 255/40/17


Planned Mod List:
VIS SS Race Trunk
Enkei RPF1 or 720form GT1 (track wheels)
Michelin Pilot Super Sports

2019 - Phase III: FI????

Hard to say if i'd commit to it... ill have to figure this one out in 2018 after my performance mods.





SHOPS THAT I PURCHASE FROM (have to give credit where credit is due):
RED = Alphamotorsports
BLUE = Nextmod
GREEN = Diodedynamics
ORANGE = WC Lateworks
PINK = FT86Motorsports
Purple = Forum Member (unless otherwise stated)

Great looking ride. How do you like those coilovers? The wheel fitment looks on point.

Great set of coils. Build quality is fantastic. I don't have experience with others so I can't really compare ride qualities, but they sure do handle a mean corner nicely.

Welp, spring time has rolled around... even though its still snowing I couldn't stare at these parts sitting any longer. The Subaru rumble is addicting!
Looking forward to the first track day in May!

We are back baby!!
The sun is out, and track day in about a week.

Tune + UEL + Catback are matches made in heaven. They make the car sound fantastic and make the twins so much more powerful!

Next up on the list of mods... shred through my OEM pads/OEM tires and buy some good bits!

Had a great experience at the track this past weekend! My biggest limitations were definitely stock tires/brakes.

Currently saving up and will invest in a track set up soon!


shoutouts to @Dougboy for the shot!

Form works for street cars and drifting..but for grip driving you hit your limits really quick.

Please tell me you're gonna join the meaty tire crew!

Yes sir! 255/40/17 RS4s at the shop waiting to be mounted. Currently waiting for the ceramic coating to cure and then they're on the car!
