Pics? It's stock right now, so just a grey hatch with an exhaust finisher and foglight. I'll take one when I get a chance!
Basically, that is what open source is. There are forums where people share their maps, which you can load using a Tactrix cable and a laptop. There are also programs (that are free) that you can use to datalog and tweak you own map, if you want to get into that. It is much cheaper than the Accessport. Furthermore, you can purchase tunes that you can flash this way as well; for example a lot of people have bought Torqued Performance maps that they then flashed with the Tactrix cable. Ends up being less than $200 compared to the accessport at what, $600 or more? But of course not as convenient since you need to use a laptop.

Congrats on your new car and obvious research you've done! The shifter bushings will make a big difference in shift feel (but add a bit of noise/whine).

Thanks for the welcomes!
The more I read this, the more I want to open up my shiftboot and check for the bushing! Does the STi/SPT bushing have a unique stamp on it? So I can check by looking at it?
