"It is my daily driver. Although after SEMA it will spend most of the next year in a shop for an entire makeover," mentioned Barkley. " [I plan to] Do a complete overhaul on the Subaru and start on a new project. Mercedes Benz C63 AMG or a Nissan GTR [they] are my top two choices right now... but I change my mind a lot so who knows!" When asked about K&N products Barkley replied, "K&N products speak for themselves; they are a well known name that has always proven to be a better product than the rest."
