    I have a 2017 WRX I'm slowly building. Anyway I have a few cosmetic things done so far next is stage 2.

    Current mods

    5% / 15% Tint

    3M black wrapped roof

    Front lip, I got it off amazon for $100 it took some heat gun work and the hardware was horrible I still need to put some better screws in it.

    Invidia N1 dual catback It sounds pretty decent no drone or anything but its still sort of quiet so depending on how it sounds with the catless dp I may switch the mufflers for some muffler deletes.

    Swift spec r springs

    Te37 reps, 18x9.5 et35

    Cobb non res J pipe

    Cobb Big SF intake

    Dioide dynamics C lights

    OLM Alpha HD LEDs

    S4 fog bezels

    Process west verticooler

    In the works

    E85

    Thanks man, I saw a few 15+ subarus (white STI, Silver WRX) today in the lilburn area. I waved but was ridding shottie in my GFs corolla. Also I snagged a n1 dual seems like it sounded good and the price was real decent. Also had to order a perrin license plate relocation kit. My disabled vet tag requires I run one in the front and rear which is kinda lame.

    Invidia N1 sounds good, I have the single exit paired with their catless downpipe.

    Nice man. I'm pretty excited car is to quiet. I think I will end up with an access port and downpipe next. But who knows car only has 477 miles on it atm.

    Got the catback on super easy longest part was UPS didn't show up until 9pm so I had to do it in the dark solo with cell phone light. I ordered my access port from MA performance and got their "pro tune" stage 1 tune. Pretty excited its supposed to give it a nice bump in power. I will be happy to get rid of the awful rev hang.

    I saw that today. I get a pretty decent deal going through Cobb directly so probably just going to go that route.

    Couple of more recent photos of what the car looks like now.

    . 20170216_180451.jpg 20170216_180506.jpg

    Parts still to be added that I currently have are JDM S4 fog bezels, Diode Dynamic C lights, JDM front grill, also debating wrapping the lower front bumper under the grill gloss black.
