Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

i wish i would have taken a before picture of the cobb springs that picked up from a cat on here but i forgot to before i dropped them off at the powder coater to get reblasted in the same blue. they should be done in about a week or so. I got my machv motorsports (fastWRX) 1/4" butt spacers today. they look solid and i cant wait to drop it.

3000k fog light HIDs look sick and im just waiting on adapters for the D2R bulbs which should be in soon!

on another note, my buddy (with the silver wrx wagon) and i both have to reseal our valve covers as they are starting to leak oil. that will be done soon.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

are those VW wheels the correct offset? I realize they were on when you got it but was there spacers or anything involved?

Really like the red interior lighting. I'm thinking about going white.

yeah but i looked at how they did it and it would be easy or me. i thought that they would use flatpack LEDs but they didnt. i looks sweet though but i could have done it for a lil cheaper!

This, and thanks for actively updating the thread. Lots of things I was curious to see how they'd look,, now I know.  Car's looking good.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

it does:

BHP
MPG
AVG MPG
GPH
VLT
IGN
TFC
TPS
CPM
°FIA
°FWT
FPR
LOD
LP
MAP
MPH
RPM

half of which i have no idea what they are. It can do more, there are codes to unlock other functions. I unlocked the BHP one!
