After 6 months of research, 4 months of searching through OzFoz and Rexnet, and 2 months waiting I finally picked up my MY11 Pearl XTPM at lunchtime.

Choices were:
- 2006 Audi RS4 Wagon - Favourite Car - V8 Twin Turbo - $80k (from $160 new) - Fuel/tyre/maintenance/insurance costs :cry:
- MY11 WRX STi - 3 kids and a job as a sparkie put a stop to this one, also can't put a tow bar on it
- MY11 WRC Blue S Edition - Loved the colour but test drove it and hated the auto
- Dazzz168's MY09? Pearl XTPM - Missed out by a few days - would have saved a packet over this one.

I'll have it for a few days before it goes in to Autotech for a $10K tuneup (needed to do it in the lease), so the gear I got off Subaru was:
- Subaru Alarm
- Thule Roof Racks (they'll be coming off until I need to put a ladder on!)
- Towbar
- Weathershields
- Floormats, rear step protector and cargo area protector
- Subaru Mesh Grille
- STi Lip Spoiler (with a 20mm x 5mm STi badge :o )

First DIY mod will be to fit the 2 x OzFoz stickers I've had sitting at home for a month :evil: while waiting for the car to arrive, then the front window tinting and probably a short shifter (waiting to hear from Ultrex).

It'll go into Autotech in a few days for the following:
- Whiteline RSB, FSB and ALK + wheel alignment
- X Force TBE.
- HSD Coilovers



Then I need to decide between (a mix of) tune plus:
- Front and rear slotted rotors, ceramic pads, braided lines (and maybe brembos and rims to suit - Rotas?
- CAI, Upgrade Turbo and Intercooler

I'll post some pictures as soon as I get them and the photo hosting site up and running

Mate I've been waiting for that long it was sort of an anticlimax after thinking I'd have it at the end of every week for the last 2 months.

But yeah, extremely happy and can't wait to get the mods done and finally go on some cruises / rally etc. :drinks:

Awesome, congrats mate! I've got my Forester booked in to see Spiro next week :) However it's just to complete the rest of my exhaust (currently sporting hitech muffs) and for a tune.

I've read on numerous occasions that the induction system on our Foresters are different from that of previous years, and changing to an aftermarket CAI doesnt really yield great results. Now this is probably dependant on existing mods but there may be money saved there if you're looking. I would thikn probably not worth doing until you do the cooler and upgrade the turbo.

Not to take away any business from Spiro but I had my suspension out at wholesale suspension in Penrith. Maybe worth a call to get a quote on? Not sure if autotech do alignments in house?

Rowie - I think we'll have twins mate, except for the year model and rims - I've got the same colour, grille and spoiler as you.

XT666 - I need to take a photo of the engine bay for the brake cylinder bracket - do you have any left?

Nolz - yeah I might drop the CAI as I've been hearing the same things - $500 odd to put toward something else. Apparently it does nothing for the stock engine but will help an upgraded turbo. Plus I want to get all the engine work done in one hit so I don't need to go back for another retune.

Regarding front tower bars, does anyone know if they do much in an SH9, and where to get them from. The genuine STi part is expensive.

Avoid the pedders, they suck ass. You will hate them. Get something decent that does not bang and crash like a drunken wharfie ;)
