I could proudly say that I'm finally a part of rex community.
Like many of you, I've been visiting this site for a long time to gather all the info I could get on purchasing rex. I've decided to join the site recently (I should have joined long ago) and making my very first thread! BTW, you could tell from my ID that I live in Japan now.
Anyway, I was thinking about buying a WRX WR Limited 2005 first, so I went to dealers to see the real thing. After talking to a sales person, my choice was naturally shifted to a STi due to unpopularity of WRX in Japan. I did notice that all I see on the roads are STi's and hardly see any WRX's in Japan. Matter of fact, all I could find on used car lots were STi's... so now my choices at this point were STi or Spec C (not RA). After considering its resale value and comfort level of a passenger (my wife), I have decided to go with a STi.
I wasn't planning on picking it up so soon but the sales person gave me a great deal, which I couldn't refuse!! So after waiting for just 2 weeks, my mistress (my wife calls it) is here for me to play.
Hope pictures come out, I used my cell to take pictures so there're in a good quality...
