    Hi - New STi owner

    Hi..

    I got a 2013 Silver STi 4 door a couple weeks ago and like it very much. It sure is different than my other car which is a 06 MINI Cooper JCW GP #0220 of 2000. Both cars handle flawlessly but when it comes to power, there is no comparison really even with the MINI producing 220 FWHP. I have plans to modify the engine and suspension at some point. Hope to learn more about the STi.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    Yes I do. This MINI is a special edition model from MINI. It came from the factory with only two seats. Some material was removed to help reduce weight. The modifications it has are: reduced supercharger pulley, stage 1 camshaft, ECU Tune, I/C Diverter, adjustable rear sway bar, adjustable rear sway bar end links, autopower race roll bar, passenger seat delete, cobra suzuka driver seat, schroth profi ii asm fe harness. I have KW V3 coilovers but they aren't installed yet. Currently it has the JCW Suspension setup which provides a stiff setup. I plan on modifying the cylinder head this year while at school in TX. I also got extra heads for the STi to modify as well. I attached a pic of the MINI. The wing on the MINI came from the factory.

    Nice STI! You don't see all too many sedans in that silver.

    That Mini looks like fun too!

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    When I got the STi, there wasn't many available in the New England area and I had asked several dealerships, many of which didn't have any on hand. Was told it would take 6 or more weeks if I wanted to order one. I like the color silver so it's all good. I attached interior pics of the one seat MINI... Will have more photos of the STi soon which I'll upload to the galleries on here.
