Default Adviceeeee!

I'm going to be financing a 08+ Sti in a couple of months. Heres the deal.. My buddy has a 2011 Wrx limited hatch, I drove it and I fell inlove, also the fact it has a sunroof.. I never really liked the new sedans because they look too big to me for some reason. The new Sti hatches don't come with a sunroof but the new Sti sedans do.

Is there anyway I can maybe special order a Sti hatch with a sunroof? Or do I just have to pick. I will not get the Wrx limited because I want a Sti already and I've had my Bugeye for almost 2 years already. Help meeeee lol

No choice. I wanted a sunroof becaused i missed having one so i jumped to the limited sedan. Remember only the limited sedans have them. So theyre more pricey

Exactly, I don't really wanna spend crazy money here, especially I'm not inlove with the sedan like I am with the hatch.. Think it will be expensive or void warranty to get one installed?

That's going to be a **** ton of money and it might void the warranty if you did have one installed. Its just a sunroof, you don't need one. Or get the limited.

I don't think they're too expensive to put in, and what could it possibly void? Maybe electrical issues if it's wired in, and if it leaks your interior should be taken care of by the installer.

I can't see spending the money on a new STi and then hacking the roof up. That is just me though. If you have the money and don't care there are aftermarket kits you can buy and have someone do the work.

If it were me I would just go with the Hatch because that is what you really want. I would never buy a whole different body style just for a sunroof.

But then I think why go through all that risk.. Maybe I'll just throw on some roof racks

Well, on the home screen there is a bunch of topics. General discussion, technical, interior, exterior, etc.. Click on whatever u need.. What kind of car do u have? There is a technical section for 2.0L and 2.5L along with many other helpful things.. On top of the page of what to click on, on the home screen there is a "stickies" button, that u can type in keywords and threads will pop up. If u need any help shoot me a message and welcome to the Subaru worldddddd!!

There were 2 clamps missing on the pass. side of the engine. you have two lines connecting to it a breather and oil line. clamped them down. my oil feed line was hand lose so i tightened it. turned it on ran it until it heated up and took her for a spin. It was a bad mother for about 3 miles and then oil started coming out the exhaust every time i hit boost. Also whenever the car sits for about 30-45 min and i go to turn it on, i cover parking lots in smoke. Its not sweet smelling and there is no milky oil or oil in the coolant. Recently it has started to, well it looks like oil is just shooting out of my boost controller.
