Default lolfunction's Never Ending Build Thread

Figured I might as well finally make this. I've been putting stuff on and swapping it for other stuff and it basically never ends. This'll help me keep track of it, but the best way to see updates is to follow my Instagram @lolfunction

Currently:
2012 Headlights (AFS light taped, woot!)
2014 LED foglights
Wald diffuser
Molded Wald trunk
Paint matched OEM rear-reflectors (Wald reflectors are DOT approved)
PPE headers
Joe Z exhaust (2nd one, need something loud again)
Joe Z intake
AFE drop in filter
Eibach lowering springs
Gloss black OEM '08 wheels
Blacked out trim
Megan rear lower camber arms / toe arms
Apexi Smart Accel Controller

Future?
Respray calipers
H&S Exhaust
Meaty setup (maybe)

Past:
Auto Couture front lip
Work Meister S1R wheels
Project Kics lug nuts
KW v3s w/ top hats BNIB never installed *SOLD* for bags
Airlift struts / Accuair management, got half installed, then decided to sell
Megan front upper camber arms / rear upper camber arms, never made it on the car decided to sell
TE37s
1st Joe Z
RR-Racing muffler deletes on Joe Z midpipe
ISS QES
Blacked out headlights
HIDs in fog lights

WANT
2012+ red interior - someone swap me or help me out!

Latest pics (****ty framing, sorry):

Thanks! Same to you, I'm jealous of your under-hood burnt titanium goodies.

I have brand new in box KW v3's sitting at my house with top hats, but I'm really really itching to bag it. So maybe soon, we'll see if I decide to sell those in favor of bags haha. Loved having my last 2 Suabrus on bags. The 1st one was on air and that sucked.

As you'll notice, I'm addicted to blue cars and Work Meisters. The first Subaru I had below was the only one not on Works.


Side note: Brendan (in the watermark) is my buddy that does killer photography work. Not me.

The molded wald looks great! Got any more pics of that (maybe showing the top portion of the trunk lid)? I wish there were body shops out here that wouldn't try to rip me off to do something like that. I'd have it done for sure.

Thanks! I wish the F was shaved, I prefer the badgeless look. When I inevitably go back for some other body work I'll probably have them fill it.

I'll shoot you some pore pics later or upload them here. I was never quoted anything really outrageous for it, sorry to hear that.

Yea I grabbed his TE37s a while back and quickly tradeded them for the Works. Luckily he let me buy his '12 lights / already molded trunk, and then I bought the '14 fog lights from a dealer on eBay. I have KWs sitting here but he's starting to wear me down and I might have to buy his airbag setup. Will have to find a buyer for the KWs if that's the case lol.

Thanks! I'm still looking for a louder exhaust since you can't help me with the H&S exhaust
Luckily, I seem to have found someone else with a loud exhaust that will trade me for the Joe Z in a couple of weeks. I'm excited for that!

And you're totally right, the lights changed the whole front end and it looks like a new car. The trunk really sets off my rear as well.

I've had a few blue cars over the years, totally loving it.

I have watched Chase build this car since he first got it. He purchased his first modifications from me, and continues to do so! Constantly chatting with him, I'm even helping him build his 3gen IS!

Just wait for this car to be finished. GAME OVER!

Yes, you sure have. Those Wald parts were the first thing I got before an exhaust even haha. I'm sure I'll have more purchases from you in the future. Thanks for all the support.

It'll never be finished, but I'm excited for what's in store for both your car and mine!

Can you share the cost and where, you're going to get your calipers done? It is surprisingly difficult to find a shop.
