Exclamation To all STi owners!

Hey guys,
I just have a question for those who have been so blessed in owning an Sti. Is it extremely fast or what?!?!
I was lucky enough to catch two STi's at my local subaru dealer (a blue and a silver one), and was able to sit in one (before the salesman was able to lock it), and I heard the silver STi slowly pulling in from outside to be showcased to the proud soon-to-be owner. The man barely idled the car in so I didn't get to hear much of the exhaust...but could hear more of that sweet engine instead. Sitting in the blue one was exciting enough. The steering wheel is smaller (or at least feels smaller) than the WRX, and it just feels like your sitting in a very fast car. Anyway, I've heard little things about how fast it is, and of course have seen all the tests against the EVO, but haven't heard from someone who actually owns it and drives it as an everyday car, probably spanking everyone out there as well. What is the lag like and what does it feel like when that turbo kicks in? I've heard it's extremely strong. Also, what are some of your guys best stories on the road so far...racing etc? Thanks,

Ever hear of the expression "If you have to ask you can't afford it!"

Well with the Speed and the STi it like this: "If you have to ask how fast it goes, then you can't handle it!"

your new here.

please dont dodge the swear filter. Im sure you can ask your question in a more mature manner.

ill let it slide this time, cause im a nice guy

street racing is frowned upon here. So leave those 'stories' out of this thread.
