2014 was a wild ride that ended early for me. Excuse the Instagram photos! It was an accurate timeline of things that happened.

Winter time and I had my white steelies rocking snow tires.


While still during winter, I received my long awaited Work Emotion XD9s. I always liked the XD9s, got it as a sick deal through work(Work wheels through work lolz). Very rare to see JDM wheels on a Euro.


It was winter and I liked the look


Bring it on Spring weather!


At Golden Gardens meet with Calbeee


I loved the JDM mismatched wheels but really wanted a colour scheme, like my distant distant VAG cousin, the GT3RS. So I got them finished in red.


At spring meet with Calbeee


Friends started getting bagged left and right!


Then there's the "Latest pic of yo whip at the Cypress waterfall". The photo that started the short trend:


Went to Stancewars 2014 at Bellevue College, photo by insomniac ft Calbeee in person.


Hung out with Seattle/Texas/Cali friends, it was a blast


When things go smoothly, something just goes horribly wrong. A man gets dumped by his gf, goes on a GTA spree stealing multiple cars and crashing them. I was the last car caught in the hijack spree. He crashed "Miley" a few kilometers away from my house as I got hijacked at the end of my block. Thanks to Cho for giving me a ride home, I swapped my Euro tail lights out for stock ones as I knew it'd be totaled.


Drove around the block in my friend's R34 GTR V-Spec. That definitely put a smile back on my face.


Dealt with insurance for too many weeks, they lost the paper work for Miley and my car just sat there. September rolled by and I got a new mk7 GTI. Much more refined, but too refined for my liking.

Will I bag it? No I don't think so. Will I modify it in any way? I doubt it. I bought springs and just lost the motivation to put them on or tinker with the car. Just going to go with the flow and save some money now.


Thanks for reading

TL;DR - improved on my own driving - was able to get 7 seconds faster just before my tires heat cycled out at the ridge

In June I bought a new 2014 sport tech BRZ



Man was I ever exited! So exited that after only 10 days my spitfire was taken away from me.



While she was in the impound I had some time to reflect on how I was such a bad bad boy.....After many seconds of refection I snapped out of it and decided to order car parts.



Ohhh it was like christmas came early
Went from stock 17x7.5 to 18x9.5 wrapped in 255/35/18 PSS



Coilovers are a must



Stock exhaust is really hurting looking so I picked up a Tsudo



Then finished up the summer with a trip up to Kelowna

Long story short, went from basically a stock run of the mill Element to one with most of the mods I've wanted to do for a long time.

ST lowering springs
Ingalls Stiffy engine torque damper
Gibson catback
DIY SRI
RBB intake manifold
OEM R32 GT-R wheels
Upgraded all the speakers
OEM SC tail lights
OEM '07 head lights
OEM '07 grille

Didn't track my progress in 2014 very closely, doesn't help that most of the photos I took magically disappeared...so here's a couple photos from the EOC meet I attended.






Upcoming mods for 2015:

Coilovers to upgrade/refresh my entire worn out suspension system (probably Ksports as they have higher spring rates and front camber plates and more adjustability than what TEIN offers for the Element)

Install front compliance poly bushings which I already have and purchase Function7 rear LCAs

Hopefully getting started on taking steps towards rebuilding my engine, either a full K24A2 motor swap or a K24A2/K20A2/K20Z3 head swap of some sort, with new pistons and cams. I'm craving A LOT more power than my current give or take 140ish whp. I'm aiming for at least 200whp but I'll probably have to strengthen my transmission at the same time. Probably won't bother with boosting as tuning will be a nightmare with an auto trans, will have a lot more issues than a swap or NA build.

Short and sweet. The Mazda3 stayed the same throughout winter and spring, and I realized that I missed driving manual. After getting thoughts of lowering a Tiguan to lower (was going to be auto) I was informed that a freshly traded in mk6 Golf TDI had arrived at the dealership that ticked all my boxes (manual, not out of warranty by mileage, no accidents). Got that instead, and the work will begin in 2015.
