lancer's 2013 IOM 2SS/RS Build Thread

Let me warn you that this will be a slow thread.

I ordered my 2013 2SS/RS on 10/16/2012.

I got the IOM interior, navigation, Hurst STS and NPP exhaust.



Tried to cancel my order the next day (to get a 1LE) but had to wait till the following Monday and by then decided to keep what I had order

TPW was 11/5/2012 and car was built 11/9/2012.

Finally took delivery on 12/13/2012. Dealer called and told me that they had installed the front license plate bracket due to a failure to communicate my desire to leave it off. The miscommunication was between the shop foreman and tech that did the work. After speaking with the salesman, shop foreman, and owner of the dealership we determined I would accept the car provided that they obtain / install some parts on the car. The next week we decided on a 1LE splitter and strut tower brace. Overall, it is my opinion that while the purchase experience was pretty horrible, the dealership did their best to make me happy after delivery.





At work



Dealership installed the splitter and brace today.




Upcoming Mods:
RX catch can (on the way)
Paint engine cover IOM
Blackout several areas on front and rear bumpers, taillight bezels, and IOM / black on the bow ties
Black on hood (except for the cowl) with hash marks, all painted

Goals:
Supercharger, long tubes, cam, 500+ hp
Better suspension

This is my first brand new car, so I have to come to terms with losing the warranty (plus i bought the extended warranty for some reason) before I do the motor stuff. I'm sure it won't be very long
