So, a little late for introductions but I did want to say hey first.
Got my 2008 STi Hatchback a year and a half ago and it's been a blast. Came from an 08 350z. I had never driven or owned a Subaru before and I was definitely won over by the brand. It was a really nice car to own and the Subaru people I dealt with at the dealership or my mountain run acquaintances were really good chaps.
That being said, it has been my daily driver the whole time and I've been fighting myself off on modifying it this whole time. Since the '11 bumpers came out, they've really grown on me and I can't stand not having one on my car. However, I really don't want to spend the money on doing that swap so I'm going to stave off my modifying lust and part ways with this car.
Anyways, looking forward to owning one again soon! Maybe a GC8 would be a nice plaything that won't break the bank!
