i agree, itís like a gunmetal grey , very clean all over , only been in the uk for a month , the one itís replacing is getting a bit tatty and mileage is high , a few mods due on new car , tracker a remap plus pump and a uk stereo with bluetooth , it has a set on 19 inch rims with 245 profile on them i did not even expect that would actually fit on it did not think there was room

Rays sportec 10 inch rims 245/35/19 , car is spotless thereís no rust , my main worry was the engine , it seems to have a sports cat but still running standard boost , the boost controller is only showing one bar , bit itís getting booked in for a tune , blitz suspension , under sealent ordered , new
cd player will be added and lots of little jobs , the fsti iím breaking is donating a few parts including a cat back which has a hks back box and a centre delete , i will probably take off the dump valve and boost controller and put back to normal

nice, do you know what ET they are? i have prodrive gc01e 18 inch on my foz, those 19s make the car sit abit better. i might be tempted to get something similar in same size, mine is on coilovers so can be tweaked to suit.

It's just missing a resistor.

well story so far , boost controller removed and put back to standard , and looking to get it mapped in april with Richard at FB tuning , new cd player in now with bluetooth , iíve removed about half bin bag of wiring from the car i could not believe how much there was , i had to repair a few wires around the ecu that had been plumbed in for something , so spent the last two days carefully cutting out wire that was added for stuff like speakers boost controller and other bits , tracker now in , it has an immobiliser and alarm but iím getting a cat 1 fitted any way , sti steering wheel back in , iím going to raise the rear coilovers slightly as with adults in the back it rubs some times, which will hopefully cure the rub , repaired cigarette wiring on both sockets , i think itís got a sports cat in it not sure if itís bern mapped i think it may have been it seems to boost to around 1 to 1.1 bar , itís a very clean car all over only slight issues is the arch bending to make the alloys fit , itís not obvious from the outside of the arch just the inner edge so dinitrol spray ordered , when thatís all done time to break my old fsti , which will be a challenge , i will update as and when if people want to know what iím doing to it ?

I think lower profile tyres on the 18 will help , to be honest iíve not noticed the 225 v 245 width difference , and both cars are on the same brand of tyre , i have put a boost gauge in today , im not sure what boost itís running yet , iíve also put back on original boost control set up , took it for a spin after that , it seems even quicker than the other fsti thatís running 330 , it must of been mapped , i just wonder what boost its running and if itís running ok , map check due on the 02/04 , i left hks dump valve on it does sound nice even through i have not really been into having them , rear suspension also raised , tomorrow tighten hand brake a bit more , put some pagid front pads on convert it from kph to mph and put a splitter in the bonnet scoop , upgrade alarm now due saturday
