    New STI Owner Here!

    Hello all!

    I just bought my first Subaru, first new vehicle, first vehicle under 100,000 miles on the ODO, first vehicle with all-wheel drive, first vehicle with forced induction, first vehicle with over 200 hp, first vehicle with a 6-speed, and a few more firsts as well. It's a 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 5-door in Satin White Pearl!

    I'm in the Rocky Mountain area and I bought the vehicle from Grand Junction Subaru in Grand Junction, CO (a great dealership) over the phone without even test driving any cars. I did plenty of research on the vehicle, and I know that I made the right choice. This car is FANTASTIC.

    I have been researching future mods, and I plan on doing a 'clean rally' look. On the exterior, I would like to get a light bar with lights, aftermarket gold rims, and tint. Under the hood, I want to get a FMIC, aFe CAI, a catback exhaust, and a tune. This all will take a long time to accomplish for fiancial reasons, but I will have periodic updates on the transformation. I plan on participating in rally-X's, winter-X's, auto-X's, meets and track days. This car is going to get used like it should be.

    I hope to see some of you around the area!

    1. Day 1 at the dealership :banana: :


    2. Day 1 at 9434 ft in elevation:


    3. Day 1 in my backyard (essentially):


    4. Day 1 having fun:

    Awesome car and welcome. I have a 12 STi as well and I am really in love with my car. I get up every morning for work and I am excited about the drive. It's just a great driving experience. Wait until your first snow. I am from upstate New York and when that snow comes and your passing trucks stuck on the side of the road.... yeah that's awesome.

    Congratulations and have fun with it. I've really enjoyed mine (WRX) through the mountain passes during the winter.
