    Cool usdm 08STI /my 1st impression

    Here are a few pics of a 08 STI which I also had the opportunity to drive!

    The car definitely looks more awesome in real life than even official and unofficial photos seem to do it justice.
    I have personally owned in order a 2.2L,98RS,02 wrx,04STi,06STi and now a engine swapped '01RS,

    The interior of the new car is definitely nice and pleasing to the eye with a nice combination of grey and titanium colored trims.
    The new seats are softer and yet still supportive, although having also sat in the pax seat and the rear while been driven I think they could have made the rear seat more of a dip than flat,as when your driver enjoys cornering and trust me it corners very very well you have basically only the grab handles to stop you from sliding around!.

    Once sat in the drivers seat my only gripe was the position of the ebrake been closer to your thigh/edge of the drivers seat and made me feel like i needed a slightly shorter right arm to be able to grab it properly (i'm sure living with the car it would be something i'd get used to) but is definitely noticeable coming from owning previous imprezas.

    As for driving the car (in traffic on a 2 lane hgwy) it definitely puts the power/performance down even better than the previous generation STi's, and again it has that inherent feel of please please plant the right foot in every gear and through the whole rpm range









    Intake on it (i know nothing)

    Interior is very well done, noticed no more STi on the IC, Very nice car, still not a fan of the rear end however. Guess i'll wait and see how the sedan turns out.

    So the first USDM STI owner I have seen thus far puts on a cold air intake and goes searching for pudels to drive through
