The only cure for STi envy... say hello
I thought I loved my WRX. It turns out I didn't. I couldn't handle all the constant problems of a heavily modified second hand daily driver. Everything was done so half hearted on that car, I could fill a page with the crap that broke or annoyed me. It had to go.
I checked into Legacy GT's and almost bought one, but several of my friends helped me dodge that bullet. They are quick everyone says, well I want fast, not quick.
I got it earlier this week, a 2004 STi with 42,500 miles for $16,500, with a clean title. A great buy if you ask me. I've been looking nation wide for 2 months, and in this area for 4 months. This is by far the best deal I've found. I wanted white because blue is so common, but I love the color, my wife says it's me.
It came with an ebay catback, SPT short ram, and downpipe. I swore not to buy modded again, but it was light. My tuner inspected it and said it looked great, the intake is so close to stock it doesn't matter, and the fuel trims were great. I'm amazed at what a difference there is from the WRX. It doesn't have the same top end, but the handling is incredible, the transmission is so smooth and it has so many awesome things the WRX didn't. DCCD, not sure what it is yet totally. Little RPM knob by the odometer... who knows? I'm excited to read up and find out though.
Thanks for all the help deciding from you guys too!
