Default Got my New 2011 STI

I bit the bullet traded in my 2009 WRX for a 2011 STI. All i have to say is that it's a night and day difference.








I am aware of my Photagraphy skills. Sorry they are not better I tried!

Well jumping out of the 09 WRX into the STi there is the obvious power difference, but most of all the suspension is much stiffer then what i am used to. The Sport Intelligent and Sports Sharp make a huge change in the cars performance. But i have not really tested the motor yet, it only has 45 miles on it and the brake in period lasts till 1000.

Congratulations!

How do you feel about the short gearing of the 6-sp vs the WRX's 5-sp? How 'different' is that from your last car?

Looks great man. But I think the new "break in" period is 1500 miles.

I stand corrected. Was actually just researching what the real "break in" period was.

So you still felt the obvious power difference even though you haven't really tested the motor yet?
