It's fast, got a six speed, the DCCD is cool, the intercooler spray looks cool but useless. There's had a radio. He wasn't really allowed to beat on it, but it was sweet regardless. Sounds NICE, rides a bit rough but it's ok.

I have seen the JDM style wheels on almost every "USDM" STi but the show cars (even the website shows the 5 spokes in their press shots). I wonder what the deal is?

The two white test cars use the JDM STi wheels with lighter RE070 tires from the Spec C. They have also been debadged a bit.

(I don't know what the secret third - or should I say Number 0 - test car uses....)

Apparently there was a change (to reduce weight even further) and the press and production cars get the forged BBS Spec C wheels.

Some of the older pictures will show the JDM STi wheels, ignore that. We're getting the JDM STi Spec C BBS wheels.

I dunno. I'd imagine either someone gets fired or SOA isn't forth coming with test cars in the future.

Hey, I still get anonymous info and have to sit tight on the contents....

Knowing info and not disclosing it is tough.
