It Better


The STi is a great car right out of the box. Exhausts that are legal (cat back) give you zero performance gain. They're simply annoying noise makers. Intakes are similar except they often reduce performance. I tend to go by the question: What's wrong with the car? If you don't have a clear answer, then leave it for now. Some people like short shifters. There are some great ones out there. But I'd recommend you find someone with one who will let you try it out. Personally, I don't like them at all, but plenty of people do like them.

Welcome to NASIOC. I can somewhat relate to your purchase as my son (also named Jonathan) just bought a 20 STi base and I've been able to drive it a bit and like it a lot. If it were mine, I'd change the 19" wheels to 18's with taller tires. It's an impressive car.
