Huge congrats
Thanks for the help!

Thank you everyone for the kind words and helping me keep track all these months. I put my gopro on the roof during my 200 mile drive yesterday. Once I cut the boring parts out I'll post it up.

Also, for those of you getting the SPT exhaust this thing IS NOISY! I love the grumble, but I wish it wasn't so drone-y with the windows up. I'll have to figure out how to better sound proof the cabin or trunk.

Up to 100 miles now. Loving every mile a little more than the last. Paid invoice @2.90% for anyone interested. If you are in the Phoenix area, I would HIGHLY recommend Power Subaru. It was by far the best dealer experience I have ever had.







On a side note, it had 8 miles when I first climbed in, which seems to be a common number. Anybody know why it is 8?

Beautiful car. I love the white. If I didn't go WRB I would have gone with your color! When it came time to sign my paper work my car had 13 on the odo. Hmm, 13 miles, in 2013, and its a 2013 model. Some people I know wouldn't buy this car , but I would and I did

6-10 is what I see on all the Japanese built Subaru's by the time they get to me. Lowest ever seen was 5. They do test ride the cars at the factory, plus loading and unloading off boats/trucks/trains.

I didn't get there until about 5:00pm. Apparently a couple people test drove it before my salesman called me. The guy who came in before me put ~20 on it and said he needed to sleep on it. He came in the next morning to buy it and I had already snatched it up

I'm hoping I hear something in tomorrow. If not I'm going to expect it to be another week or two. I'm so ready to jump out of my truck, it's time to get back to a nice "practical" car.

Yes sir. I'm coming from a WRX. I wanted to upgrade the WRX, but why put STI parts on the WRX. It will still only be a WRX. I would rather start with an STI base and go from there.

You forget about it after awhile, so don't worry. Did you get the boost gauge?? If not..you should think about installing one and a EGT gauge just to see what your car is doing.

Nah, I didn't get it. Once I start(or decide to) the upgrades and get into stage 2, that will be on the list of things to get.

I decided to increase the warranty to 6 years, mainly for the roadside assistance(because I know I will lock my keys in the car at some point or do something stupid), but I'm going to do a few things here and there.

It's okay, you signed for it in 2012. Only be worried if you picked it up on January 3rd, 2013

This is one good looking Sti due to it's identical with my not-yet here SWP base.

And from your post I decide not to sell my S204 rims for now, save it for the future, or till subaru change the base rim to Canadian double-7 Enkei style.

Congrats!
