Zak, I'm so proud of you. You're growing up so fast and stalking subies like I did back in the day. *tear*

Hey, is there anyone on here with a blue LGT with bike rack on top that lives in Ames? My first guess would have been Danny hanging out up there, but I am pretty sure I remember the car having Story County plates on it. It was parked next to my at Walmart Friday night. Very clean looking car!

That was my second guess, but wasn't sure if that deal was done yet or not.

Speaking of which, any updates on the new car?

He has had the car for a few weeks now. He works at Bike World (along with Sauer) so it didn't take long get the rack on there.

I haven't heard any updates on the new car yet...it sucks.

ed, even I can't wait any longer!!! wtf mate?

Also just to answer the question a page or 2 back, i'm not sure if new tires means I'll be goin to marshalbahn yet. They will certainly improve my chances of being there! We'll have to see how work/life/junk/crap all stacks up.

I'm guessing that you can do WAY better than $19,500 for a 3-4 year old WRX with 66k miles. Seems pretty overpriced to me.

It sits soooo much nicer now and rides a LOT better, I would almost say it's the best $270 I've spent on this car...

So, who has the silver Hawkeye STi that was in the Urbandale/Johnston area today. Saw it heading to the McDonald's on 86th Street in Johnston. Looks like it has a little dent in the trunk lid... Sounded nice!

yeah let me know if you hear anything about it. I like the 08s but I love the 11's. Way more aggressive look where as the 08 is kind of lacking.

Not as dirty or low as some of the recent pics lol



There's a slight sag in the rear, and I'll probably get spacers for it someday. The handling is crazy good, especially comparing them to my stock springs or S-Techs!
