Ported my stock sti TMIC Y Pipe to help sell the TMIC on eBay. I will say there's actually some room for improvement on the stock y pipe.

Sold my 2017 WRX STI on Saturday for a 2014 WRX STI Hatchback. Found one stock with 20k miles on it and talked the dealer $4,600 under the listed price for it.

I have been going camping a lot more and the ground clearance and cargo room of the 2015 Impreza hatch wasn't cutting it. I have tons more room and clearance now. The gas mileage around town isn't great but it's not terrible, 17mpg.

I only have my coupe.. The tetris games I play to fit things is annoying

I'd love the 4Runner just to have the capacity to drive people comfortably and for my future dog to "ruin" it.

I grew up watching Travis Pastrana back in his motocross/supercross days when he was a teenager. When he signed on to Subaru back in the early 2000s, I followed.

The third generation of WRX STI is what I remember the most from my rally exposure. Things like watching him jump 269 feet at Red Bull No Limits on NYE, setting the Mt. Washington Hillclimb record, or dominating in rally during the 2008 era. That body style was just what I was used to seeing.

I'm a fairly active guy, so buying a hatchback just seemed to be an obvious, practical choice with the things I like to do. Hockey bags, bikes, boxes, etc. I just saw added utility with the extra space of a hatch. I first bought a 2012 WRX Hatchback because it fit my income better at the time and frankly, there weren't any new WRX STI hatches on the market in Maryland. To make a long story short, I ended up trading the 2012 WRX for the 2017 WRX STI after my career developed a few years later.

Every time I drove that wing around and saw a hatchback, a part of me longed for the hatch again. Don't get me wrong, the performance of the 2017 WRX STI is fantastic, but something felt incomplete. I suppose the 2017 purchase was really just a power move to sell it for the car I really wanted.

A 2011-2014 WRX STI hatchback.

Randomly found one online at West Hills Honda in Bremerton, WA. Did some research for a few days and negotiated an amazing deal with a trade.
