So in December last year I had the chance to 'upgrade' my 04 STi to a blue facelift 05 STi, so I jumped at it... so here's the new whip:

I always think that I'm not going to modify it much but I probably will, and will just document things here along the way. I also note that all the pics in my old thread are gone due to Dropbox changes, but I've figured that out now so my pics going forward will all work.

Well I'm in NZ, they a bit more plentiful here than over your side of the ditch. It's been owned by a few people before me but it's in great condition.

Pretty factory so there's not a whole lot to report at the moment, except for:

Suspension which I believe is WRX STi with lowered spring, hence the very-low stance;
Rims: Rota Grids 18 x 8.5 44et fronts, and 18 x 9.5 18et rears;

Audio: Pioneer AVH-X5650BT headunit. Nothing fancy on the speaker side of things yet

Some kind of exhaust system but I haven't looked too closely as to what it is.

First items on the list to remedy:

Find out what suspension / springs are in it to figure out what I can change to get less bounce and more comfort factor;
Change rear rims to the same as the fronts, so they are the same all round;
Get front speakers / amp / small sub installed

Sti Front Black Lip finishes off the front end nicely...
