Default 2007 WRX STI Limited (293hp) - Merged

From Automobilemag.com
http://www.automobilemag.com/auto_sh...x_sti_limited/

Limited to just 800 units, this U.S.-only STI variant is aimed at the shy, quiet wannabe banzai rally driver. The transformation from wild-child base STI to the business casual STI Limited was achieved primarily by swapping the regular car's gargantuan rear wing and roof-vane spoiler for a far more subtle, single decklid spoiler. The Limited also gets foglamps, a front air dam, unique Enkei wheels, and black Brembo calipers in place of the usual gold grippers. Inside, heated leather seats, satellite radio, and a sunroof improve the livability. Of the 800 cars, half will be painted white and half will be gray.

Looks like a nice V-Limited Lip (as said above by Senor).

Also, is that a little side-skirt flare in front of the rear tires? Niiiiiiiice.

These things are going to be in high demand. They should be building more than 800. I love everything about it except the wheels. But they'd make great winter wheels.

well the 800 units are most likely just to test the market. i kinda like it, less boy racer and more upscale.

I really like this. Looks much better. The only thing I'd like is gold brembo. You gotta show those puppies off.

Please clarify if you know.

hmm. interesting maybe if they decide to sell these as standard they will start selling a real Spec C Type RA in place of the regular STi!!

hopefully people buy all 800 of these in the first week.

OK...so they go ahead and add the JDM V-Limited lip, take off the spoilers and add fogs... if you ask me, they're making stock what many do aftermarket! Can't wait to see the markup on that.

unique Enkei wheels my ass... those look exactly like the stock BBS's!

i am however very jeleous of the leather and sunroof. i cant afford those mods.

wtvr, can't wait for my lip and wingless trunk to come in - then i'll have my modified version that will now be considered a "limited" knock-off

those wheels are like the type RA

I want this car. I seriously think I just found my next ride. Now to scrape together a big fat downpayment because of the poopy interest rates.

If I can't swing this I'm just getting a supra TT.

looks hot.. My question is.. What is the weight of those Enkei wheels? Are they forged? BBS wheels were tops, this might be a downgrade...
