So an update on the car, as I have put on about 330miles on it the last few days.
First the things that I like.
Suspension and Chassis out of the box is amazing! Having had an EVO X before, I am not afraid to say that apples to apples the new STi will outrun it. The new steering rack will also make this car great for autoX! The stock interior is fantastic compared to the outgoing GR, I dont like it as much as the GD personally but its leaps and bounds ahead of the GR. Stock tires are amazing, but are a little loud. The new sound system, is very good for Subaru standards (if that means anything). Last is the look of the car, every time I part the car I cant help but turn around and look at it. Some thing the car is very plain, but that is not a bad thing as I have yet to have a single cop look at the car
Things that I hate.
Stock seats are terrible, I mean they are THAT BAD! Yes they look nice, but do not hold you in at all ( I am 6'4" and 230lbs). The noise tube is driving me NUTS, it makes the car sound cheap and I on purpose have the stereo loud enough so that I cant hear it. The car has a big blind spot on both sides around the rear 1/4 panels, I find myself checking them 2-3 times before I change lanes. Reverse camera is a big "small", yes its nice but I wish it was a higher quality lens that had a wider angle.
That should cover basics for now
, we will have more info as we get more miles on the car
