    I picked her up 2 days ago and she had only 4 miles on her, she now has 150+ miles on her. She's a little filthy because yesterday it was raining, so tomorrow i'm going to wash and wax her. I can't wait until I get to 1,000 miles and she's broken in :big grin:.

    nice!!!

    i hate that the US get the 2.5L models. australia gets stuck with the 2L... for now :p

    anyway im not a big fan of scoobs, but the STis are nice!! congrats

    tell me, do subaru supply the car from factory with the semi-slicks? or did you put them on?

    Very nice, I'm sure you'll love it! One thing I would personally change, though, is the taillights, I hate the Altezza look. You could swap in tails from any 04-05 WRX, direct swap, and I bet you could find someone willing to do a trade. Unless you like these better, then disregard, it's your car.

    thats pretty good!! certain types of semis are illegal here in OZ :( you're quite lucky you can legally have them on your cars from factory!!

    nice car BTW :) i meant to say that before

    Thanks.

    I'm actually getting rid of the tires tomorrow, while they're awesome high performance tires, they're horrible here in Florida because it rains very heavily literally every single day during the summer and these tires are terrible when the roads are wet. I'm going to be getting some Eagle F1 GS-D3's. I'm going to see if I can trade them in for the Eagle F1's, but if worse comes to worse i'll just sell them locally or put them on eBay, they've only got 150 miles on them so someone will want them.

    id buy them. but shipping to australia might be a tad expensive :p

    go for a less slick semi-slick. something with an advan sticker on it will do you for all round the year.

    I hate the front end of the new STis so much. As well as the wheels.

    Fun car, none the less.

    You need to see the new front end in real life, it never shows up well in pictures but in real life it's the most aggressive and sleek looking thing out there. I absolutely despised the new STI's when they first came out and pictures were starting to pop up of them, but as I started to see them in real life I fell in love with it.

    My favorite color Scoob!

    Nice looking ride minus the front end (hate to say it but they remind of the front of way too many korean cars). My buddy has a silver STi, 04 very fun to drive.

    Watch out for anything hitting the body panels... very thin metal.

    Oh , the first time I saw it was in real life, and on a few different cars in Phoenix. I thought that the first time I saw it. I think they look like the round side of a titanium driver.

    You should have gotten the gold wheels :p

    Sweet car!



    Do the STI foglight covers come stock or did you have them added?

    nice I have a legacy 2.5GT. The STi imo is much more fun to drive... more sporty.

    Thanks

    I didn't like the gold wheels.

    The STI foglight covers came stock.

    I have a wrx, you'll love it, just be careful, because the faster you go the better the car feels (hard to explain). :big grin: enjoy

    Man they really fucked up on the grille and bumper....the headlights and fenders have a good shape to them though so maybe the aftermarket will address the front end styling.Too bad cause the 04-05's were teh sex...Anyhow
    enough negativity, very nice car, better then anything I got.:bowdown:

    You need to see it in person.

    I absolutely hated and despised the new 06 style when I first saw the pictures, I thought it was hideous and disgusting. Then I began seeing them in person and wow, they're absolutely incredible. In person they're extremely aggressive and very sleek, for some reason it doesn't photograph well.
