I got my 08 sti at 50k miles. Thing was squeakin like a mug the first time I test drove it. If I didn't want it so bad I would have let it go.
Going over a speed bump is like a musical. The suspension is singing to me or something? Struts, sway bar...what the freak is making all that racket. I can't even ride with my windows down cuz the noise gets so loud and annoying like nails on a chalk board.
Love the crap out of that car though.
And shifting, will I ever get good enough that it won't make that "thud!!!" almost every time. I'm starting to figure the "thud" out, my shifts are a little smoother. But, i'm still battin like %30. Is that just me. Or is it good sometimes to get a nice "thud" when it drops into gear??
