The end of an era

Well it finally happened. I sold my pride and joy. I had an 06 STi. White, extremely low miles at 35k. I traded it in on an Audi A4 Convertible. I know everything about my STi as I have been researching them since 2004. I know nothing about Audis however though.
You guys have been a fantastic group to talk to and have provided such a great knowledge base for me over the years. Thanks for the great memories!

Doesn't mean you gotta leave Dan.
Your knowledge will be well needed with all the newbs.

Only advice I can give you about the Audi....SELL IT NOW and buy something else.. You may say what you will, but you are going to have numerous electrical, suspension and various other issues with that car.

Nope unless it's new that is one car i will never own used. I've seen at least 7 of them locally that all had those same issues. Sad because they very nice cars.

I know doing some types of maintenance yourself can be stupid hard. I've heard you have to drop the front bumper to do an accessory belt.

I know you have to remove the front end to do a timing belt change. Don't get me started on the twin turbo models....gah....
