I recently installed a red STi push to start button. I ordered from a dealer locally, but through their online parts department, for $93.


I think it came out really nice, especially with my red reverse lock-out.

Got new tires last week, decided to get an alignment/corner balance today, and raised my ride height about 1cm all around. Was tired of scraping the front lip; plus the new tires rubbed a bit going over dips in the road.

Installed a set of mud guards, so I took the BRZ off-road and into the swamps to test them out.


The guards kept all the mud off, and the horsepower gain was especially useful in when climbing the bank of a stream.



They also protected against alligators biting my tires.

I'm hoping that you washed the undercarriage and wheel wells thoroughly after your off-road excursion? Whilst climbing the stream bank you may have inadvertently picked little critters that will grow into little monsters with an appetite for steel..... Mud guards have a habit of containing all kinda of shite that normally would grace the side of the car...

You are brave taking BRZ through that , i bought a zook gv/swb rock crawler for the pleasure of where the road is not and keep BRZ for the road.

Judging by the size of that exhaust tip, I donít think loud sounds bother this person

I added sound dampening mounts to the compressor. I'll see how it is when I get everything together and working.

Had to rinse her off after just washing it like not even two days ago. My neighbor has this POS tree that stains my car with some orange stuff. My paint sucks as it is Then once fall comes along, it starts dropping pecans and shit. I can see tiny dents in my roof and trunk from last year.

Donít want to be the tool with the car cover and Iíve accepted the fact that the paint will never be perfect so Iíll just touch up and detail once and be done with it I guess. Still...sucks

sounds like me. I have these obnoxious pink trees and bushes in my yard. They look nice when they bloom but they spit sap like crazy. There are times I wash it almost every day to get the sap off, but I've almost given up. If moving wasn't such a pain in the ass I would.
