RCouchh's 2019 M2C Build Thread

Hi all, I'm @RCouchh and welcome to the build for my newly acquired 2019 M2C, 6MT in Hockenheim Silver. I picked up the car 9/30/20 with 9300 miles.

Figured I'd keep it stock until next season.

Well, that was a silly thought considering the Subaru I came from







Pics I took of our first week together












First mod was window tints, I did carbon 20% all around. Will probably do the windshield 70% at some point.

Ordered a Remus Race exhaust with the black/cf tips, as well as an AA midpipe. Should be here within the next week or so.

Next thing was a CF rear spoiler






Will continue to post updates as I do a more mods over the next few weeks.

Plan to order some painted front side markers, honeycomb rear bumper inserts, a CF diffuser/front lip, maybe front canards. Few other small things for now.

Next year wheels, possibly wrap. Slight drop

Remus race axleback came in, AA midpipe coming tmrw

Unfortunately the car will be at the dealer next week (they're repainting my rear bumper bc they scratched it), but will install the exhaust as soon as I have it back.

Can't wait to hear this thing!

Great stuff! very eager to hear your thoughts on the remus paired with the AA, did you go for the equal length mid?

Thanks, I can't wait to hear it myself

I was going back and forth for a while, but I actually went with the unequal for a few reasons.
1 - It would probably take a while to get my hands on an equal-length, and I'm super impatient
2 - Unequal is quite a bit more $, and I got a great deal on the normal.
3 - I'm hearing a lot of mixed opinions and people returning the equals
4 - I plan to go catless downpipes down the road and would want non-resonated now, but apparently it sounds bad non-res with catless dp's.

Should have the car back tomorrow or Friday hopefully...

Then will be installing the exhaust.

Picking up a used set of winter wheels/tires on Saturday as well. So much for the car being immobile this season


Some AA midipipe weld porn in the meantime. Funny how these are significantly better than on the Remus, yet its so much cheaper.

My winter setup has some rash so I figured it was a good time to change em to black. Went the DIY route and got some DipYourCar's Hyperdip in shadow black. 4 cans of dip and 1 of cleaner ran me about $60.

The product I must say is much much better than traditional dip. Significantly smoother spray (goes on like spraypaint), satin finish and feels much less rubbery/grippy. It is very thin so it can drip if you spray it on heavy. I had to be very careful and still got 2 drips in total. They're barely noticeable since they were probably on the 4th-5th coat. Did about 11 coats in total so it should hold up great.
Overall very happy with the results.






1st light coat (50%)


2nd light coat (50%)


3rd normal coat



Lost count of coats, used 1 can per wheel was probably about 10-12 all in all.
Finished product

Yeah I've had some bad experiences. My last car the purple dip looked amazing, but once I went to remove it I realized they used so few coats it was an absolute nightmare.

One thing I will say, as long as you prep and use the right amount of coats it is always easy to take off. For thinner areas, using dip dissolver w/ a pressure washer makes it really easy. I didn't know that last time around either
