Thanks! I did coilovers, swaybars, and endlinks. It wasn't cheap, but worth it to get rid of the wheel gap and improve the ride and cornering. The car is on rails!

Got any pics of your STI baby? I often question whether I should have bought an STI. I am going to Cobb Surgeline Portland in about 10 days to get a turbo back and AP tune. I'm turning out to be a whore to this tuning she-ite.

I do back on the first or second page I think.

I wouldn't stress the wrx vs sti thoughts. Sometimes I honestly wish I bought a wrx instead (I know not many people will say that) when I start to think about pulling the sti parts off to replace with aftermarket. Then I realize there is no sense to think about such things and just drive it and enjoy it for what it is.

This guy I know with a PBP STi is convinced that this color is rare and limited edition, I on the other hand am not so convinced. Sure it's not common, but not rare. Any clarifications?

From what I have read, it was STi only in 2011 (Canada got it for the WRX that year). 2012, it was available for both models. I don't think I'd call it rare; my car has a doppelganger at my work... granted, that's in a sea of 8000 cars, but still.

I would be interested in production numbers for each color, though.

I think Lightning Red would be more rare. They stopped offering it this year.

Edit: my buddy's neighbor has a PBP, too. So that's 3 I know of in just Columbus, OH.

I thought it was rare until my friend moved and I found 2 in the same apartment complex. Still the STi hatch that parks there I wave to perpetually to, even has the same mudflaps as I do lol. I know of a 2011 PBP STi hatch in Chicago in the Midwest as well. Other than that not sure, I'm really more in Denver now, I see STis all day mostly WRB, PSM, or OBP, occasionally PBP. I really wanted Lightning Red but I was told it wouldn't happen in a hatch without waiting 6+ months, this was in December of 11 though.

It's pretty much impossible to find a wingless trunk. A had a couple offers for a WRX wing pretty quick. I ended up giving in and taking the wrx winged trunk to get rid of my spoiler. I'd still love to go completely wingless though.
Here's a better shot showing the wrx wing...
