I already posted this in the "what did you do . . . " thread, but thought I would share it here too.

I clearly need some meatier rubber than the 225/40s on the rims right now. Goofy gap looks aside, they under drive the speedo and odometer by about 10 per cent.

          Have you checked speedfactor? I recall them carrying motul and redline products.

                      Just managed a quick wash.

                      My 2017 DGM Base WRX, 'mods' that's I've done:

                      - Plugs for the front bumper JDM license plate holes
                      - RallyArmor mudflaps
                      - Tint
                      - Plastidipped badges on the back and sides
                      - Smoked tail lights

                            In the next month or so I want to hardwire in a dash camera, I already PMed Colin about it. I also want to pick up the JDM armrest extension from SubiSpeed because the factory one is really only useful if you are 4' or shorter.

                            EDIT: Almost forgot that I want to put on a color matched STI Wing / do a trunk swap, but I feel like that will be a long time out as I don't want to shell out the $850+ to buy it from Subaru and finding a salvage STI or someone to trade with will take a very long time.
