Hey all. Lurker/Occasional poster here....thought id share my build since everyone elses' seems to help so much.

I bought the car on 9/9/14 after weeks of hunting down an IS ST3 spec'd exactly how I wanted it. Recieved it with less than 100 miles on it and that new car smell. This is my first new car, ever. I owned a Jetta and an Outback prior to this. As a recent college grad who got a job in his field, I thought id treat myself :)

I'm not fantastic with photography or documentation, nor am I mechanically inclined(IT nerd) but I'll do my best for the community we have here as so many have helped me along my decisions of mods.

What I have done:
20% tint all around. Including tailights and rear reflectors
De-badged the "Focus"
RokBlokz Mud Flaps
Shark Fin Antenna
FSwerks ShortThrow kit w/ Aluminum Bushings
Custom WC Lathe Werks Hybrid Piston Knob
Blizzak LM-32's on stock wheels(winter setup)

The real fun will be once winter is over and the big boy stuff comes out. Thanks for tuning in!

All finished.

Thanks guys. Once this terribly cold and white winter goes away she should look like a brand new car. Appreciate the kind words.

Finally! The last piece of the puzzle has arrived. Fortune Auto 500's with Swift Springs and Radial Bearings.

Things start to get installed saturday, the rest that cannot be installed that day will be done 2 weeks after with the alignment after the coilovers settle.

Are those bronze burst F14's? I was thinking about either that color or gloss gunmetal myself.

Also, offset? My guess is +48 on 18x9.

7k front, 5.3k rear.

Love this setup. Cannot compare it to anything else, aside from stock. But i have no regrets at all. Rides like butter and is just point and shoot with the steering.
