Default My new unmolested 2006 STI

A few Pics of my new whip.
I will be doing a build thread soon!!
The car is a completely stock 2006 STI with 30,000km, or 19,000miles on the clock. It was purchased from wolfe subaru and it has about as good as a history as you could get. No accidents, scratches dents, nothing. The previous owner was 55 and he rarely drove it. The only parts I've put on the car are new brake pads and 20mm spacers front and back to give it a bit more of a flush look. Next I will be taking care of that nasty fender gap
With out further a due, here she is!!

Thanks!! I know what you mean. I've been torn now for about 4 months. If and when I do purchase any go fast goodies I'm planning on keeping everything as close to stock as possible! As far as power goodies I was thinking full exhaust (something quite,maybe cobb, with a true 3 inch DP), Walbro 255lph, DW750cc's top feed conversion, Access port, Process West top mount, Koyo aluminum Rad also i would be relocating the Intake air temp sensor to behind the IC,and porting the stock wastgate to take care of any potential boost creep. As far as handling is concerned I'll be installing some KWV3's with new top hats front and back, adjustable sways front and back, anti lift kit, subframe lock bolts, and steering rack bushings. As far as my brakes go I will be installing DBA 4000 front and rear, stainless steel brake lines front and rear, master cylinder brace, ferodo ds3000 pads, and Ate blue dot 4 brake fluid. I've done a ton of research and talked to a very reputable tuner and I've been told I can have this setup for just over 12k, Cheaper if Install everything myself, which I'm planning on doing, minus the wastegate porting and IAT sensor relocate. This should be a fun and fairly reliable setup. Whatever I do, it will stay within the spirit of the car, nothing crazy
or I won't do a thing and I'll just keep it all stock and sorry for wasting your time haha

Honestly an Sti with such low miles. I wouldn't modify.

04-07 sti's hold their value pretty well. Especially 06-07.

just enjoy it. The ride height is that for a reason. the suspension is designed to ride at that angle. instead of spending money on mods spend it on quality oem parts.

Dang, son! That's a pretty extensive list. It sounds like you've done your research that's for sure. Best of luck with and make a buikd thread when you start all the mod'ing!

Wow that thing looks clean! I'd just do a DP and tune and be done! Although it's outside of warranty anyway..so why not mod the **** out of it haha

That looks a lot like Steve Romaniuk's car. I think his is quite modded though. Gorgeous car though!

Nice find!

What kind of spacers are you running? I'm assuming they had lugs built in, and if so did you have to trim the stock lugs?

Beautiful! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for yours? I bought by 2006 in March 2010 for $28500. It came with a few extras but relatively stock too.

Thanks for all the support Nasioc!!
To answer all of your questions. The spacers are hubcentric and yes they came with studs. I realize that subaru has the suspension geometry/ride height set up that way for a reason and It does work great from the factory!! I guess I just feel like the car is a bit loose under hard cornering/ It wonders around just a bit to much. As for the power the stock tune leaves you wanting just that little bit more. I'm sure you guys know what I mean. I do agree with the people that say keep it stock and just enjoy it because it is definitely going to retain it's value better than a modified car. This is another problem that I'm positive a lot of us on this board struggle with. Hens if/when I do modify it I will try and do it in a way that will leave the car as stock appearing as possible. If I had any motivation for how to do this it would be the Mines r34 gtr. The car would be all about responsiveness and handling well appearing as stock as possible!! I figure that with the above suggested mods add a clutch and maybe down the road a marginally built motor for insurance and you could achieve this with a good tune. $$$ I know King, yes your right I was playing around with my camera a bit to much when taking these shots!! Black I surprisingly hard to shoot during the day!! oh and I paid 27k for the car. The dealer wanted more but I grinded them as much as I could which felt awesome by the way!! Effing Dealers lol!
