    Default The white subaru/toyota/lexus thing

    So after waiting 6months+ (placing order on 11th June - 1 week after pricing and 1 week before official release) I picked up my 37J GTS 6mt on 21st December. Best Christmas present EVER!

    Tracked the boat and watched it dock (was off sick from work so had nothing better to do haha):


    That same weekend went on a cruise to freo and found it:


    5 days later (including a very well planned fremantle port strike) Delivered to me Dock Fresh:



    Just fitted in the garage with the tezza:


    Didn't have time to wash or drive it really until the Sunday:






    Then fitted the rear diffuser (first piece of the puzzle)



    Then took it for a drive and got the compulsory 86km photo


    Mods so far:
    Red TRD sound changer
    Aero kit diffuser
    Satnav start up screen (cuz it's rad)

    Future mods
    5AD rear lip spoiler
    TRD door stabalisers
    Cusco front strut brace with bms
    Beatrush rear strut brace (mounts invisible under boot mat - flat floor is usable)
    Chargespeed or similar lower skirts (front, side and rear pods)
    Eibach Pro kit springs (pickup in next few days)
    Rays Gram Light 57Xtreme 18x8.5+33 18x9.5+40 (or just 18x9.5 all around)
    Airaid MXP intake kit
    Some sort of catback system
    Probably some window tint cause no window tint in summer sucks...

    Post warranty:
    Coilovers
    Mechanical lsd
    Twinscrew charger....

    Got my oil filters from subaru since they are half the price for the same reboxed filter at toyota. $17 vs $35....

    Don't forget the sump washer/gasket (seem to be a crush ring type).

    There seams to be quite a few in WA...

    I bet the wait was worth it and thanks for the good tip on the filters being half price of the Toyota item..

    Nice, I didn't know they were selling TRD door stabilizers separate?
    On another note I can't see for the life of me why the owner of the blue GT86 would
    Do the lip and skirts a different colour, it makes it look tacky IMO

    My guess would be he had just received them and fitted them whilst waiting to arrange paint

    I've seen it like that for a while, so I assumed that was the look he was going for.
