Well done, that is one of the nicest SG9's on here I reckon.

I'm running my VF48 at 1.2 - you wouldn't want any less once you've experienced it. :D

Update 24/04/2015

Front 2005 WRX Seats (with Airbags) installed. STI seats are way tooooo snug for my sideways build. Had some cat claw damage (on the passenger seat) from the ex owner's cat.

Notes on install:
You need to remove the female connectors of the seat belts - don't know the technical term
The rear Forester seat bolt covers can not be reused

August 2015 Update,

I recently got the Foz back after an OEM rebuild: new pistons, piston rings, bearings, valves, valve stem seals, head gasket, head skim, thermostat, coolant caps and new hoses.  Work was done at Subaru Cpt. Why OEM? because of warranty. 
Don't want to jinx it,  but after +1200kms, she didn't use any oil... so it seems that this sorted out her oil thirst.  Great work done by the Subaru Cpt Mechanic ;)

I am two weeks into the run in and I need to do another 350 km.
First impressions, she runs awesome, deep exhaust tone and very difficult to keep her under 4000 RPM as per run in instructions.  My compression must have been totally screwed to affect her this way.  Anyways... pocket is lighter and I can now put this behind me.

The rear lights are working on my nerves, it is just toooooo blingy...need to do something about it :-\

Nope, replacing them and giving the old ones to a guy to spray the insides black. There's a 30% chance that it would be successful as you need to cut it open with a dremel.
