Default STi Owner Once Again!

Hey guys! Apparently I just can't stay away from turbo charged rumbles!

Came from and S2000, but it was getting impactical driving a 2 seater daily so I was looking into other cars.

Always been into Evos and Sti and one day found a great Hawkeye with a great price tag.

Unfortunately after a week a CEL came on the Sti and couldn't figure out what it was. Local tuner said it's a generic code and he was able to flash it but the car just didn't feel right...
Came across a beautiful Evo X at a dealership and couldn't resist...

Then about a month the car started acting funny! Would bog real bad at high RPM and boost felt flat. Just my luck, went in for a compression test and turns out there was a leak on the 4th cylinder A rebuilt and everything would've cost me at least $8K including r&r and I would be out of a car for a month which would've been impossible for me... So I took it back to the same dealer and traded it in for another STi.

I was had a local shop do a full inspection prior to purchasing and everything was perfect this time around. Fell back in love with Subarus all over again.

Here I am... willing to trade my WRX for a S2K and a winter beater. The WRX/STI offers best of both worlds I suppose.
