Installed My APR CF Front Lip. Might have to pick up a CF rear lip or an HKS or other Brand CF canister Muffler.

Pulled all the lining in the trunk, cleaned everything out. Sanded down the paint and sprayed a sound deadening material that is similar to truck bedding in my STI.

Tightened the bolt on my negative battery terminal. Tough shiz, will probably take it to a shop next time to avoid the trouble.

I took the day off to do exactly that today. It's super super easy. Last time I did it without the kit (on my 2003 WRX I had before). This time, I actually got the V1 hardwire kit because I am lazy, and I want to also use the concealed display.

Anyway, you pop out the map light thing (pry out the lens with a flat screwdriver, then two screws hold it to the ceiling) and there is a plug just sitting there for the powered rear view mirror (my car doesn't have this, so I am using that connector for power). You can use a volt meter to verify that you have ground and a switched 12v, and then use the supplied connectors or make your own. It's a great project to start with because it's pretty easy, and you can't really hurt yourself or destroy anything.
