I didn't make the video, obviously. I love his camera holder thing though - it's electronic self-leveling doodad that makes all his videos seriously good quality. I think he's got a go-pro on it.
Actually the subaru group I hang out with doesn't have any of the stance/herrafrush bruh-bro's in it. All are a bit older. We actually use the term "bro" as a joke/jest, as you can see by my comment "i-club power, BRO?"

Mine is the white hatch.

17x8 6UL 5 Lug

I'm thinking bronze? I'm always thinking bronze, I'm a ***** for bronze.


(stock tire is 25" tall 205/55, the 26.6" 225/60 to the left is what I've got right now. 16" rims are stock dimensions)

Pushing out another 11mm might be a challenge with the wagon. It'll fix my low speedometer though!

I'm seeing guys with wagons running +36 9" wide rims and 245s that are "hella flush" in the rear with an aggressive fender roll, so I think I'll be fine. Subaru be crazy with that oem +53 offset. Hopefully they are still in stock when I have room in the play money budget to do it

you'll be totally fine with a x8
in fact I'd say that's the perfect size for a GD wagon

I'm sure my "aggressive fender roll" helps

335i is a lot like the wrx, I dont know how people can stand to drive ones with the stock tune. Canned stage 1 seems to be a about a 100ftlb increase in torque and about 70hp increase.

Why no 17x9?

9.5" and 255 on the BRZ, no roll necessary.

is there a good source for body fasteners? like the screw type clips for fenders and liners?

i need to replace a few and want ones that fit are intended to be there.

I have had good luck on Amazon. Bought them for a coworkers truck, my wife's Tracker and the Miata. Be prepared to sort through hundreds of types to find the right size. Bonus if you can find a part number on an existing fastener.

About 6 months ago I went through the whole car and replaced all the broken and missing clips. It only took 3 parts numbers for my 05 LGT, which inclded the under tray, oil access panel, fender wells, "mud guards", and some **** around the engine. One of the 10mm ones is perfect for the miata bumper skin as a bonus. I can get the part numbers I used off the boxes if you want, if its relevant to your baru. They also publish the oem crossed pt no. in each listing which helps.


They are fairly good quality, not chinese.

So I was just about to replace the miata with this. Today.




tell the guy I'm on my way to pick it up with cash. Texts me back 2 hours later saying he sold it anyway.

Ugh.
