    Just wondering. Was in at a subaru garage today to get a part. The old UK reg and vin showed up on the invoice but said its a spec d. Wondering if this is just a mistake or was it originally a spec d? It's a hawk sti type UK. I'll attach a pic.

    i hadn't really pushed the car up to now. Didn't notice a huge difference immediately but drove out to Conemara afterwards and much smoother once revs go above 4000rpm or so.
    The car really flies up to 6500-7000 now
    fair play to Aonghus, he's a sound man

    Must say I'm lovin the car now.

    Fuel was from Circle k

    power delivery of jap engine is magic. Engine seems very sweet to me, lots of evidence of oil changes by previous owner should have helped

    What did you do to your car today?

    Gave her some love time by plastidipping wheels.
    Here is a photo before (while preparing wheels):

    And here is final result. 8 coats of gold Matt plastidip and 3 coats of shine lacquer on top of it.
    Not ideal as it was my first time plastisipping anything but I am more than happy with result. Took me whole day today to get it done.
    Hold my beer. 'll show you how to do it :-D

    I know but I couldn’t do it that way. My lock nuts on all wheels are made that if I will screw them in, they would rip plastidip off. That’s why all was done on car. But I hear what you are saying.
    Thanks for kind words.

    Haha, it’s as low as it’s possible on Eibach springs. Keep in mind that this photo was taken 30s after taking it off lift so probably didn’t settled yet :-) there will be no coil overs in this car, for sure:-)
