    Well i finally got the time to post my journal up.

    This should show you a little bit about the life of my car since i have owned it.

    I purchased this 2002 WRB WRX in June of 2005. It was nearly stock and looked like this.

    I first started with the stereo system by adding:
    2 Rockford fosgate P1 subs in a box i have had since my first car.

    i next added a head unit a kenwood 628, and a sirius sat radio. Well after saving money and waiting patiently i bought a 30 gig video ipod and a new head unit with ipod connector. I upgraded to an IWS-200 ALpine double din.

    i also added a autometer carbon fiber series boost and volts gauges.

    After a couple weeks and my first wrxatlanta g2g(mountain run) in july i decided it was time for some new wheels/tires and exhaust. I then went out and purchased a set of 17x8 Oz superlaggeras and 4 brand new Toyo Proxes Fz4 tires in 225/45/17s.

    The exhaust i ended up purchasing was a 3" GP moto turboback from Tray up at topspeed.

    Then came some other mods and things.

    I ended up getting her dynoed at Topspeed at the first big dyno day we had. I put down 219awhp and 229awtq.

    Well after having a spoiler for a good amount of time i decided i was tired of the look. Went out recently and did me a trunk swap.
    I also had added Eibach springs.

    Can I still get the badges when you do take them off?

    I'm getting my trunk painted this week so it'll match up better.

    Journals looking good.

    If you see Scott Sanders up at SOG he can probably give you some pretty good tips on removal. All I know is use a blow dryer to warm it up then use dental floss to separate the glue. But there are probably better ways.

    Is it possible to take off the Oval Subaru Badge? It has the holes behind it, so the only way to get it off completely is to do some metal working to cover up the holes huh?
