Well, since I just got my new 2011 LGT I have driven about 1500 miles. I just changed the oil to synthetic and installed my first mods.

Mods so far are:

Blizzak LM-60's on the stock rims - I love these tires now that it has started to snow! They make driving in snow nearly like driving on dry pavement

Window tinting at 35% done by Autopia in Glendale Heights, IL. - Love the tint, not to dark and is good even at night. I think 20% would have been to dark and very annoying while driving at night.

Clear Bra (3M Film) on the front bumper, 18" up the hood and on the mirrors also done by Autopia. This was a custom job and took a long time. They did a pretty good job, cost me about $400. There are a couple of bubbles that worry me so I will take it back and have them work them out.

Invidia Q300 Cat-Back exhaust - It is much quieter than the Magnaflow I had on my 2008 Spec.B. Though I think the magnaflow sounds deeper and meaner I like this Q300 as it doesn't get to loud and doesn't drone as much. You really notice it at start up and when accelerating or down-shifting and that is exactly what I wanted. I don't think I will do a DP with this one as that means a Protune (for me) too and I don't feel like taking this one as far as I took my B. Got this from

19MM Rear Swaybar - got this bar after reading this post:

You can see the bar installed in the cat-back pick above ^^. Haven't driven enough to notice much of a difference myself. Probably feel the difference when I put my summers on and get to have a little more spirited driving

WeatherTech FloorLiner DigitalFit - if you are in a place that has snow (salty roads) or you might get mud all over your shoes (and therefore your car floor) these floor mats are awesome and I highly recommend them. The Subaru all-weather floor mats are pretty nice but these DigitalFit mats are 20x better.

Lastly (for now) are the Hella Supertones. I was browsing this thread:
and decided it was time to let the other idiots (drivers near me) know that they are trying to get into my lane when I am currently occupying the very spot they want to move into. Got them from and did the horns, bracket and harness - only way to do it. I posted a before and after vid on youtube. You can barely see them in the pic, which is good but you certainly hear them!

That's all for now.
