    Just joined: 08 STI Spec.R (EDM) - Warning: Loads of pics!

    Hello all

    I've visited this forum before but never registered until now (bored at home, sick). Glad to be here!

    Been a die hard Subaru fan for a long long time and I've owned a few of them. Got my drivers license in 1998 and my first car was a Honda CRX 1.6i but straight after that it was a brand new 2000 Impreza GT 2.0. Had that one for about two years and loved every day of it.

    Subies I've owned:

    2000 Subaru Impreza GT 2.0 Silver
    2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi 2.0 Crystal Gray / Gold
    2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2.5 Pure White (Aspen white) / Gold
    2007 Subaru Legacy Spec.B Urban Gray
    2008 Subaru Impreza STI Spec.R Lightning Red / Silver

    Other cars I've owned:

    1989 Honda CRX 1.6i 16v Silver
    1984 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth (Built as RS Cossie in 1998) Blue/Gold
    2006 Mazdaspeed 6 Pearl White
    2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X SSS Aero package Wicked white
    2006 Audi S4 Quattro 4.2 V8 DTM Silver
    2007 Jeep Cherokee SRT8 Blueish.. don't know the colorname (Current daily driver)

    My 2008 STI Spec.R is a Euromodel. To be honest I'm not sure if that's the real name for it, but when I was ordering it the package was titled Spec.R on the list and by the salesman, so that's cleared!Got it on April 31st 2008 and so far only has about 2000 miles on it. It's my little darling I guess..

    Spec.R includes:

    Recaro leather/alcantara bucket seats (hence the .R)
    18" Multispoke BBS wheels (silver for Lightning Red)
    Fog lights
    Push Start
    Keyless entry on doorhandles and boot
    Privacy glass (tinted rears)
    DVD/Navigation touchscreen

    No serious mods so far and propably never will be as long as it's in my posession. Only thing I've done so far is adding a frontlip, sideskirts and rear aprons... oh and RallyArmors! Well, and a red pinstripe on the grill. Thinking about getting yellow overlays for the fogs and the tails will be painted red with clear center.

    I love looking at nice pictures of cars, so I've taken alot, ALOT of pics of this red little thing. Lots of different angles, closeups, tilted ones and stuff. If you don't like looking at alot of pictures that don't necessarily show lots of different mods or stuff, just click the Back button haha!

    Anyways, I've got ALOT of pictures of it, but here are some I selected to start this thread... they are still ALOT... and I have ALOT more, but these are "the best" of what I got I think:



















    With the Evo X I had...





































    Temporary ovarlays on the tails, to see if I liked it. I did. Will be painted red over the winter sometime.



    This is how it is currently














    And no the Autobots badge isn't on there, I just placed it there for the pic

    I will post pics of my other Subies as well, but the first post is LONG enough. If you want to see some of my other cars, I'll post pics of them too. I don't think I have any pics of the CRX on this computer though... or the Cosworth for that matter.

    and the only UK spec 08/09 STI that has that is the Prodrive 330S or a Litchfield import from jpn

    Yes I knew about that and I find it so stupid. Don't understand why US owners don't get the seats and push start. It's not like it's banned in the US.

    No plans on modding, no. I'm not really into that but I do want to upgrade the exhaust and intake.

    Dude, I both love you and hate you right now. Love you for having the taste you have and caring enough to show us some pics of the beautiful cars you've owned. And hate you simply because I'm jealous .

    Very, very nice pics, and thanks.

    THIS.

    I've actually seen your STi hatch on some other forums and was wondering whose it was. The car is amazing. Thanks for sharing!

    What kind of camera set-up you got going for these pics? Looks like a DSLR with the depth of field you have going for some of this. Nice shots for sure!
