Little update:

 

Clutch and tyres have arrived :).

 

Clutch is getting fitted monday and my wheels have been shipped from Italy so the wheels and tyres should be on the end of next week after the wheels get ceramic coated by MKDetailers.

 

Also ordered a decat pipe and a sports cat as its cheaper to modify the decat pipe than buy a downpipe with sports cat.

I am going full out ready for my trip to the ring in 3 weeks time, can not wait to get some laps racked up in the Subaru.

 

Another little update, due to the high volume of thefts now happening ive decided to get a tracker fitted so this will be done next week :)

 

Thanks for the comments guys, need to give a shout out to Unit18 Automotive in Milton Keynes though they have been incredible supplying and fitting the parts and you should check them out as they are a supplier for all the parts i have used :)

 

Especially those KSports Nevell they offer free fitting on most packages ;)

Thank you, So many people have commented saying nice things. Not bad to think two months ago it was completely standard.

Salsa-king i have already bought a set off of you and i asked a professional tinter to fit them who then put a hole through them :(

 

Tidgy iirc these clutches are for up to 400bhp which is my goal. Remap next week hopefully once the garage i use receive his ecutek stuff so hopefully pushing low 300s.

muppet, how did he do that, cover heated it? you only need a warm hair dryer.

 

soapy water, a vinyl squeegee and hair dryer is all you need.... and a bit of patience. I did mine ok. trimming the edges are the tricky bit ;) I whipped my clusters out to do that. but fitted while on the car.
