The TSL Motorsport Group N exhaust for the Subaru Impreza is quite a revered choice when it comes to ‘standard-looking’ backbox options. Not too flashy, and not as antisocial as something like a Nur Spec or Afterburner exhaust.
Although a genuine STi model, my Impreza was unfortunately missing the most important visual thing – in my opinion – that the STi variants feature. That huge high-rise rear wing STi spoiler.
Here I finally get my hands on one.
The Winter weather and many cold starts have really taken its toll on my old standard battery. Being such a vital part of a car, why skimp on cheap battery? I bought myself a Bosch S4 024 battery to really bring the Impreza to life.
Always a fan of Osram branded bulbs, I decided to swap over my old tired headlight bulbs to a set of new H1 Osram Nightbreakers.
New Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyres; quite an expense, but one of the most important features of a car. Tyres are the only thing that provide contact with the road, so you need to make sure you’ve got good quality rubber at all times – especially on a 4WD Subaru Impreza.
Following a recent service by my local Subaru specialists Zen Performance, it had been recommended that an upgrade to decent silicone hoses makes a very worthwhile upgrade, both in looks, performance and preventative maintenance measures.
Known as one of the highest quality aftermarket part producers in the UK, HT Autos have a reputation of providing some real nice bolt-on kit for Subarus.
And I couldn’t help but purchase one of their newage Front Lip splitter kits.
Just a small thing I like to do when exploring a new car is to check the oft-forgotten cabin filter. This is the last line of defense between you and the outside world when it comes to having a pleasant interior.
At the closest opportunity, which naturally meant on a dry weekend, I did what any new-car-owner should do and gave the Impreza a thorough clean! In credit to the previous owner it was already in a rather tidy condition, but there’s no better way of getting to know the inside and out of your new car than getting up close with the polish.
Subaru WRX STi Mods & Blog
The latest happenings with my 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Modifications, photographs and day-to-day running of my STi. I built this site to become an informative resource on the 2003-2005 'Blobeye' Impreza models. Hopefully you'll find something worth reading!
My car is my daily driver therefore you won't find anything too crazy here. My intentions are to keep my STi somewhat stock, but upgraded in the areas that matter most.
My ultimate intention is to have a well maintained, performant but above all reliable vehicle I can use to get me to work and back - with a smile on my face!
Please do reach out in the comments sections on any post if you need some help or clarification, I'll try my best to help you out.
