I am not sure how much anyone has seen elsewhere on the web for the car so I figured I should bring it to scoobynet as well, the last year has been very busy with getting the car imported, and networking with everyone so without further delay I give any interested readers, the Story so far....


In November 2010, while on a vacation from sunny Tucson to Las Vegas, I found a car I simply could not leave on the show room floor. The car was a 2011 (my favorite color) Satin White Pearl STI, clad in CUSCO vinyl from its debut at the SEMA 2010 show, and while the car was "in your face" it had a running parts list of every modification I figured I would eventually perform. Built as a collaboration between Subaru of Las Vegas' Mike McGuinness and CUSCO Japan to be featured at SEMA, the car had the latest and greatest featured suspension and several other "goodies" added for the show.

Remarkably, I ended up with a car I never thought I would own, finding a new home in my garage in Tucson. I participated in a few shows to gauge the interest of the vehicle and decide if the vinyl party pack was to stay on or be peeled off. Luckily for her, she brought home a few trophies and was well received by many fellow enthusiasts. The vinyl pack got to stay and I was soon on the road to do more; More Power, More Modding, more....Everything.

The time came for me to move and our destination was a new home in the United Kingdom. After a safe journey from the bone dry desert of Tucson to port in San Diego, it arrived at final destination in Brandon, U.K. ready for the U.K. debut.

From one side of the world to another, the car continues modifications to show for the U.K. circuit....

I can't wait for my ARK Exhaust to get here, APO shipping is a pain On another side note, Look whats new for the car and on the way


Braille Batteries released a limited edition STi carbon fiber battery and special aluminum mount kit for the Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Only 500 will be produced, featuring a Carbon Fiber B2015C battery and Pink Mount kit weighing 50% of the stock battery weight! Time to lose some weight

Thanks! JPM Coachworks does AMAZING work, best thing about them is if you have any shift boots you can send them to JPM and they can remake them in Alcantara/Leather/Half-Half with pretty much any color threads.
