Thanks man. Can't really beat the price point of the wrx. I got the heated seats, short throw shifter, all weather mats, some roof spoiler thing(vortex generator), and license plate bracket(can't believe they charge you for this).

got it for for 1k over MSRP with the options OTD which I think maybe isn't the greatest deal but it certaintly aint bad. Seems to be a market demand thing honestly there were people coming in after me wanting to buy them so I just gotta capitalize.

You still got a good deal man. You're going to love that car. For a daily driver, that's truly an amazing ride. It can go in crazy weather conditions, it's a 0-60mph champ, gets great gas mileage, is dependable, has 4 doors, plenty of space, cheap to maintain, and affordable. Before I got my Camaro, I almost bought an STi because I wanted to make it monster, lol. I love those cars.

Yeah man just been driving the car for the past week or so . Its awesome for sure. I was in a mad dash today to get snow tires though everywhere sold out around here. Ended up getting a sweet deal on some hankooks. I'd say overall about 75% of summer tire traction.

I also got a GOPRO Hero 3 Black Edition! Tons of mounts and the LCD Panel for the back. Thing is wicked sweet. Stay tuned for videos of shennanigans of 1000hp roaming the streets!

I like it a ton man. I couldn't wait so I took the camaro out for a spin today I tried to make some videos but the only thing I accomplished doing was fishtailing down the highway LOL. I figured maybe if I dropped it into 3rd and hit it from 65 it would spin a little. Fishtailed thankfully nobody was around me LOL . Its pretty awesome takes 12mp photos, wide angles, 1080p, and I love that it has a little remote so you can control it without touching the gopro. I'd get one!

Project for today is to clean up both the cars. Took the camaro out got dirty a bit, re-clean it and put it away again, worthless on the tires even more so in the cold.

Anybody thinking of ever getting a WRX or STI. Please do it. After getting back into the camaro today WOW i felt like I was in the titanic. I felt like I really felt the weight of the car. WRX feels so nimble and quick, I think i'll be spending most of my time driving it! Just put some winter tires on I'm ready!

Thanks man! Doing some mods to the wrx after the holidays. Got a touch screen radio incoming and a front lip. Tell me if I'm crazy man but after driving the camaro again today I was just like, "this is a freaking animal" like in a bad way. Its just not possible to hookup all that power on the street, takes some enjoyment out of it when your dropping it into 3rd gear to pass some people and your fishtailing down the highway! Makes me nervous that when I do need to get out of my own way all i'm gonna do is light up the tires. Debating getting it de-tuned and then getting a handheld so that I can switch the tune at will.

You aren't crazy at all. That usually happens when the car transforms into beast, and it usually isn't as fun on the street as it would be on the track since it'll need slicks to hook. The WRX stock or modded will hook like a mofo with its AWD. They are fun year around. I know exactly how you feel man, trust me. You aren't crazy at all.

Yeah man it HOOKS. Like it feels so fast man, honestly I drove the camaro and got back in the wrx and was like wow, I love this car LOL.

Here man just showing you messing with the gopro a bit on my way to pickup my dinner. 1080p @ 60fps. Just a light launch still under 1000 miles . Heading out in a bit to try get some on the camaro, sliding my way through the highway and all lol

I really.........should...........get DRs. Sad thing is I only really made about 7lbs of boost and I can't hook it up, still got another 8lbs or so to make to redline LOL. On another note the video shows the ultragauge doing its thing! And the gopro is ****ing sweet success.

You're very welcome man! I was hoping it would turn out good and just kept blending a bunch of different pictures into eachother until the whole image came out the way I wanted. I was hoping you'd like it. If you need anything updated or changed in any way let me know and we'll modify anything, the background stuff, new car pics, an engine pic blended in also, etc.

Also, on your screen name on the sig, I only put "Vanquisher" instead of adding the "SS" at the end, but I'll add that in if you want. Just let me know. It just looked so clean with the word Vanquisher by itself!
