Yup... after 2 amazing years and so much fun.. it's time to sell my beloved STi. It's pushing 308 whp 320t/q..My wife hates the wing and it's not the most practical for me with teh baby and all.. even tho we have a volvo s40 for my wife... Also.. I can't have a daily driver that needs to much attention to maintenance like my sti did.. Monitoring oil contantly , always checking the Ecu for CEl..I love this car and I will really miss it but I just need somthing abit more refined..especially for my work (image is alot) so I purchased a 2006 Volvo S60R in Sonic Blue with Navy interior. This car is sick! It feels just as fast as my sti and handles about the same. It has options of Comfort /sport/advanced susupensions..
It's abit heavy and big fut I can get use to it.. also it's pretty rare here and the colour(sonic blue) us a young colour.
I opted for the 6 speed auto with gear tronic ( i know your all laughing!!) but I do alot of city driving and for the 2006 models.. the auto is jsut as fast as the manual due to a revised trany and the tourqe kicks in at really low rpms 1500 so u have NO lag,
I did drive the 6 speed and the clutch felt weird alsp it wont let u launch it so I thaught what the heck?
I looked at the E46M3 but you cant squeeze power out of them without BIG $$$and my Sti raped them all day..lol I also looked at the Audi S4 and I dunno it didnt really impress me..The S60r can be braught to 375 hp with just a chip /downpipe and exhaust,,
so I am picking up my S60R tomorow at noon I still have the STI for one more night...
Maybe just maybe I'll make one more video for you guys..lol
I'll miss everyone and hope I am still welcome in this forum and to keep in touch,,
atleast I stuck to AWD ....
