Default Well guys & gals.. I finally totaled my sti.

We moved out to the sticks to be close to the lake and well.. I took her for a joyride Monday night and hit a turn too hot, powered right off the damn mountain. I launched her and I down a cliff. I got a concussion, belt burn, and major back pain, but once again Subaru saves my life! So now I guess I'm looking at a 2015. Guess it's time to part her out. I'm gunna miss my baby though.

Not in a tree but I took out some cedar trees, and it came to a rest on the passenger side with the roof against an oak.

Glad you are okay. I recently came into a similar situation that places me back into a Subaru after last car totaled a week ago. I had ordered an STi as well a few weeks back.

That looks like a dangerous cliff.

With EVO line ending and the new look of the WRX/STi, I would get a 15'. Although I like the EVOs, I am not very fond of the interior. Also the new WRX/STi comes with back up camera and Bluetooth standard.

which are both very handy in the event of another accident.

I actually had forgotten about this. I remember awhile back, I read somewhere that the WRX/STi had a built in roll cage.

Looks like it's even more safer now with the back up camera and Bluetooth, haha.

You'd think that after a bad accident caused by hooning around, a person would learn something.

Stop driving like an idiot. Or keep driving like an idiot. The 'roll cage' will not protect you one of these days and your txic obituary will read "she loved covering her cooch with roses, and drove like an idiot".
