Taking notice was therefore unavoidable when our latest customer showed up in a very special 2010 GTR. This GTR […]

FLI’s Project 08 FXT

I would first like to start off with a little background on myself. I purchased my first Subaru back in 2001 when the WRX first hit the showroom floor in the United States. Coming from an Acura RSX, my stock 2002 WRX felt like a rocket ship! After thoroughly modifying the WRX, which you can […]
