Default Wow, I got a new car. How'd that happen?

Long story short, I no longer have my 04' STi. After running into some issues with the running gear, I'm the proud new owner of an 06' STI in some sort of grey color. As far as the differences, the 06' is a lot more confortable. I'm sure the wife will inderstand once she starts talking to me again.

anyway, it was a hell of a day.
So here's a few pics.





time for sleep.
cheers

I suggest you put two beef slices of beef on either side of the hole in the middle to complete the look of it being a flying *****.

The '04 STi had a level of coolness that was uncomprehensible to Steve. The constant erections were inexplicable especially since amarpauld wasn't around.

(Congrats on the new car )

How come you were selling the wheels? Don't match the new ride, or wife says you have to keep it stock? Regardless, nice buy. I think you made a good decision.

bigger hubs mah man. The Slips won't fit on the 5 x 114.
I'd love to run these, and my old cf hoodscoop but neither fit.

kekeke, I still swim in these seats. The new material does hold better though.

I am not only happy with the change, but a lot less stressed.

Richmond Subaru ftw!
They bought it back from me after listening to my sob story of the last 4 months.

It has a new motor and clutch/flywheel combo, but there's some little issue with detonation now. I just lost interest in the car. I was so frustrated with it, but I know that they'll have it fixed before the end of the week. I just got tired of dropping it off in service, and driving a courtesy car while making payments on an STi.

That car, once working, will make someone very happy. I left the Prodrive springs, along with the Optima battery. Plus, it's such a sexy blue (yeah, I know I never liked the blue in the past )

On that note, I can't say enough good about Richmond Subaru.
Barry, Dustin, Pety, Alain, Angela (she's hot ) and even John were such good people to deal with that I won't hesitate to send anyone I know to them. They are truly good people to deal with, especially when buying something as $$$ as a car.

I hate to admit, but after seeing 06WRX (kris) car I really fell for the 06' style.

Is it the same color as yours?
Kind of a champagne/silvery color?
I think that's CGM, but I'll admit ignorance on this one.

Dude, me too.

Just to set the record, I am not a baller. While the kids food and milk won't be affected by the purchase, the wife and I won't be doing too many nights out for the next few months. McDonald's take out ftw!

I had this conversation with a buddy yesterday. He says "I thought it was grey?".

It is grey!
Crystal grey metallic.

I'm going to request a new custom plate.
"pv55y" or "p555y" or maybe just go literal with "vaj 555"

btw, Dave says that my car looks way cooler than yours plus I get a bigger discount.

nyah, nyah, nyah.

young fuka, follow your heart and you can't go wrong.
If it means now getting an 06', and an Italia-plasty surgery (to look more italian, of course) then so be it.
See if Penphoe can arrange for a screen name change to hypamoto. I'll throw in $3 towards that.
