Well, I am still getting use to the differences from the Rex to the STI, but so far I like it. It's ALLOT stiffer then the 08 suspensions. Not a big surprise since the 08 are sprung like a Legacy. I do miss the comfort over uneven pavement and drainage gutters. I am still getting use to the gearing since I spent all my time on the freeway so far. I like the tranny better then the Rex. The gears are crisp and fast. I'm a little slow on shifting on fast take-offs because I'm use to longer gears. I reprogrammed the shift light for 6100 to give me a little more time to get it into gear. All the red and pink STI lights are kinda cool at night.
On a side note, the hatch is easier to see out of. It's easier to back up then the sedan. At least I feel more comfortable.
Although my sig says I am stage II, I haven't installed anything yet. It's all on the garage floor, but I want to drive it a bit stock first. So far so good.
