Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake: 2015 Subaru WRX STI Build, Part 2 Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake

Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake The Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake is officially the first performance install for my little-ole 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. And, thus far, I’m quite happy with it. Like I said in my first build post, while I’ve done pretty much every repair you can imagine on a car, this is my first real performance wrenching. So, I decided to start with an easy upgrade that may...

2015 Subaru WRX STI Build: Part 1 I've Finally Started the Build on my 2015 STI...

I’ve Finally Started the Build on my 2015 Subaru WRX STI… About 6 months ago, I bought an Ice Silver Metallic 2015 Subaru WRX STI with an STI Short-Throw Shifter and upgraded Kicker sound system. Since then, I’ve made a few cosmetic changes. By that I mean red RockBlokz Rally Mud Flaps, OLM LED high beam and daytime running lights (from SubiSpeed.com), Lamin-X yellow foglight covers and a bit of plasti-dip on the...

2015 Subaru WRX STI: Yep, I was right… I want one. [NAIAS, Video] (UPDATE: Pricing)

As I’m writing this post, I’m watching The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.  I can be said that this is not the greatest of films.  But, there can be no argument that the cars featured are a bit inspirational.  I’m seriously a hairsbreadth from grabbing the keys and being very, very irresponsible.   I recently sold my 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, and since then I’ve been aching for another fun...

2015 Subaru WRX STI: Leaked Photos of My Next Car (Hopefully) [UPDATE]

As a car and watch blogger (and moderate-t0-severely obsessed individual) I love leaked photos.  LOVE THEM.  There’s just something special about seeing a car before I’m supposed to.  Most recently the automotive world was graced with leaked photos of the Lamborghini Huracan ahead of its official unveiling.   And now, today, thanks to the Mexican automotive blog Terra Autos, I am happy to present leaked photos of the...

2015 Subaru WRX Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Subaru has officially won the road-going rally-car war.  With Mitsubishi retiring the Lancer Evolution after the Evo X’s run is finished, the Subaru WRX (and WRX STI) is the undisputed king of the hill.  So, think of the new 2015 Subaru WRX just unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a victory lap. It seems almost sad the the best Subaru WRX thus far is losing its sparring buddy.  But, be that as it may, the 2015 Subaru WRX...

Subaru WRX Concept: The Future Is Bright… and Blue [Video]

The current Subaru WRX has been around since 2007.  Which means, it’s about due for a next generation, especially since the gen-four Subaru Impreza hit showrooms in 2011.  So, it’s a good thing the Subaru lifted the veil on the Subaru WRX Concept yesterday at the 2013 New York Auto Show.  At this point, the WRX Concept is strictly shown a design study that is long on looks and short on facts.  Subaru did give us a few...

How Much Car Can I Afford? How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway?

How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway? We all want a nice car. I mean, who doesn’t want a Rolls Royce or a BMW or a McLaren in their driveway? Hell, at about $35,000 a MINI Cooper John Cooper Works and Subaru WRX STI are lofty goals in their own rights. But, that begs the question, just how much car can you afford? Or, put another way, how much money do you need to make to buy that new BMW M4?...

Subaru Forester STI (Techically Forester tS) The STI SUV We've All Been Waiting for Is Finally Here... Sort of...

The Forester STI SUV We’ve All Been Waiting for Is Finally Here… Sort of… Christmas has come early this year for Subaru fans, more so for Subaru fans in Japan. For about a decade Subie aficionados everywhere have lamented the lack of STI treatment on any car in their line up other than the Impreza. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the WRX STI, especially the 2015 Subaru WRX STI I have sitting in the garage (that...
