Impreza WRX STi AlxSTi's 2006 Aspen White STi Journal

Thanks for checking out my STi. A lot of you guys already know me and my car, and hopefully this thread will allow me to meet some other enthusiasts. I've owned and modified a few other cars and have been on many different tuner forums, but I gotta say that the Subaru community (NASIOC especially) is easily the best part of owning one. I hope you like what you see & always feel free to make suggestions or ask me a question here or thru a PM.



I owned a couple Hondas, BMWs, and Nissans, before becoming a proud Subaru owner. I heavily modified a '93 300ZXTT and then moved onto a '98 Integra. In 2005, I purchased my first Subaru from a private seller in Philadelphia. It was the first Java Black Pearl STi in the United States, which was purchased by a Subaru employee, and then sold to me. I happily daily drove that STi until March of 2008, before finding Sasha. With only 9k on the clock, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to fly out to Chicago and purchased her from a private seller.. which was immediately followed by a long road trip of bonding back to Delaware.

Below is the current mod list and will be updated as things change. Every single mod, maintenance, and detail have been done by myself and with the help of a couple close friends. These cars just feel so much better when your own blood, sweat, and tears are put into 'em.

I already have a thread in the Proven Power Bragging section that I made after getting protuned at Agile back in April '09. I figured it'd be a good idea to start a journal where I can post recent pix and discuss new and upcoming mods. If you are curious about the tune, that thread is still located here.

Did you get it on from the actual seller or at a place on consignment?

Thanks man. I'm a big fan of your photography. I'd love to get some extra cash together and get a good camera.

Will do.. we still need to get some legit rolling shots of us together. Maybe on the way to the Agile meet in a couple weeks.

I bought it from the private seller. It was listed on eBay. IIRC, it was female owned.. she got it in the divorce and it was sitting in her garage, not being driven. Lucky find IMO.

Finally replaced my worn RE01Rs with some new Potenza RE760s. Unfortunately, I need to replace a worn wheel bearing on the front passenger side, which will be taken care of ASAP. No matter, I'll be heading down to the Agile Auto open house tomorrow morning.. hope to see some of you there! I should be coming home with some updated pix to add to this thread.

Thanks guys - I ditched the gold BBS for these new wheels in March. It took me ~2 years to decide on a style/color combo and I'm very happy with my decision.

Also, a friend of mine got some decent rolling shots yesterday. I will probably post some up later today. Oh yea, I am taking donations for the "Alex needs a good camera fund!"

Ha, thanks man. Yea, there was a 350Z next to me for a bit, then I noticed your white STi there after I got back from lunch. I wasn't modded much at all for my first couple Agile meets, so I know how you feel.

Agile had an excellent turnout! The lot was packed and cars were lining up the street outside of the shop's lot. Lot's of cool cars.. I'll be posting some pix in their thread sometime soon. Also, I (well my gf) won the raffle for the JSC turbo inlet. I'm debating on installing it or not.. we'll see.

AlxSti: Great looking car. A while back I came upon a couple pictures of your car with the SVNs and from those pics I decided to get a set for myself. So, I'd like to say thanks for posting your pictures and in case you ever wondered what your STi would look like in black, here you go:
