    Newbieee






    Hello all... just dropping by and say hi to all. I just picked up 2011 Wrx Sti Limited couple days ago. Looking to learn more about Sti's and such. Im coming from a 09 Nissan Maxima S. Maxima was sweet car but not as sweet as the Sti though. Im really new to turbo'd car and im actually wanted to know if there is any tips for a newbie.

    How do the cars compare in terms of comfort, fit, and finish in your opinion?

    Congrats on the STI!

    Similar to you, I swapped to my '08 WRX from an '01 Nissan Maxima. Though the Maxima's got power, the overall experience can't compare to the WRX. Seeing that you have the latest STI (i'm so jealous!), I'm sure you'll have even more fun!

    On top of that, the more you drive, the more fun it gets....

    I have the '11 limited too.... I love this car. Hold on though - if have similiar luck to all the other '11 owners, you will start hearing rattles like crazy.

    I've got two rattles so far within the first 1000 miles. Which reminds me, I'm past break-in, time to get the oil changed. I'm not climbing under the car with the temps we've had around here. No thanks!

    Its too early to tell. Had the Max for about 2 years and had the STI for 4 days now. With the weather here in Jersey, i only had one good day ride with the STI.
