    Hihihi, new STi owner

    Sup guys.

    Been registered here for years but never really posted. Just traded in my 03 350z for an 04 STi. Found her at a nissan dealer and ended up paying nearly nothing. I'm coming from a pretty long line of previous awd/turbo cars (3 gsx's, and a 420awhp evo8) so i'm VERY happy to be back . the z was way too impractical for me and what I needed.

    my old 03 evo (419 awhp)
    my old pos 350z

    and my new subby

    Your "POS" Z looks pretty nice to me. I wish I got a Z instead of a wrx.

    Anyway welcome and read the stickies

    Welcome! A 350Z is no POS. I seriously looked one over before getting the WRX. One reason I choose the WRX because it snows around here.

    those pics are decieving, it's before all the damn body work i needed. i had like 10 dings, my ex keyed the whole driver side of the car, needed a new hood, bumper was ****ed up, the paint was in terrible condition.

    not only that but
    -the gas tank was huge and it ate gas like no other
    -i live in nj and driving in the snow wasn't too fun, even with decent all seasons
    -modding that car is a waste of time and money. parts are expensive as **** and i didn't trust that motor running f/i unless i built it. lots of time and money that i didn't want to have to deal with
    -didn't like the visibility
    -needed space. you don't know how much you miss having back seats til you don't have them

    bunch of other stuff. basically, the z is a fantastic car, it's just not for me. i'm an all wheeler

    Yep, I thought the outward visibility was downright dangerous. The storage space was laughable and the car is not very modable. Considering what I have spent on the WRX, maybe not modable would have been a good thing.

    I considered a Z before the WRX. Visibility was bad, but in hindsight I think I could have gotten away with less storage space. (which was the only reason why I got the WRXover the Z). Oh well maybe if they make a 350Z replacement someday I'll trade the WRX for it.

    i can't count the number of accidents i've almost got in with that car cause of the lack of visability on the sides.

    oh yeah, the whole 2 seater thing kinda sucks when you can't trust your idiot friends driving. i swear to god, i'd rather be behind the wheel than some of my buddies half of the time

    Welcome, congratz on the new Subie. Your Evo is amazing. Cant wait to see what you do w/ the STi.

    You should talk Turbo Trix into doing Subie work. I have a friend from home (New York) who has a 2G GSX that knows them.

    Pure hatred? I just explained the reasons why the Z wasn't the car for me and even said it was a fantastic car.

    TTX actually just bought an STi a couple months ago and already begun work on it. http://www.turbotrix.com

    Welcome to the club.

    If you live in NJ I would strongly suggest you get some damn good security for the STi.
