My Wannabe JDM Type S

Finally time to start the car journal, due to jetlag.

I have a 2013 BRZ Limited in Satin White Pearl with package 1B.
Being the JDM lover from before JDM was cool, I've been in the process of JDMing it out. It's my first new car, (but not my first Subaru, had a GDA WRX and a SG9 Forester XT Sports) and something that I hope to keep to pass down to a younger relative, just like my cousin passed me down his one owner 67.5 Datsun Roadster, which I'm in the process of restoring.

Here's some pics from when I picked it up at the dealer. I was lucky to find it for less than MSRP, and only had to wait a month to get it!



Still had all the plastic on it, only 6 miles.



First mod was opticoating it. I haven't taken any pictures since buying the car, because I've been traveling a lot for work. As of today it has 5xx miles on the chassis.

Mod List (with pictures eventually)

Opticoating



STI Push Button Start



STI Battery Holder



STI Leather Access Key Cover



TRD Door Stabilizer



JDM S Exhaust Tips
Debadged SUBARU lettering (JDM style, yo)
STI Gurney Flap

Ichiba Spacers 22mm, 32mm (to get the wheels flush)



JDM S Knee Pads



JDM Toyota 86 GT Rear Console Silencer



JDM S Full floor undercover



On STI Pink Springs
JDM Clear Corners

TRD Sound Changer
Gimmick Racing hood struts

Much more to come soon.

They're fine. Bolts right on. No change in sound, just a cosmetic mod. Just installed JDM 86 GT Rear Seat Silencer and JDM Knee Pads!

Spacers look good. Apparently it's only like 9:30pm in SF right now so hurry and get the springs on.
