    new from LI, NY

    Hey guys I recently traded in my 2012 Camaro SS convertible for a 2012 Sti sedan. Reasons for trading in ofcourse was one the gas milage sucked on the camaro was getting about 13mpg, and spending $70 every four days for gas. two it was my daily driver so during the winter time i got stuck plenty of times ending up late for work and almost smashing into people. three i needed more room and the four doors definitely help. i always have my friends in the car and this car is just perfect for what i need. anyway i already bought some mudflaps, a vortex generator and did a muffler delete with some massive 3.5" quad exhasut tips. here are some pics of my camaro i traded in, had it tuned to 450hp with bolt ons. and pics of the new sti...

    Two exceptionally different cars. The Camaro is an impressive performer in it's own right.

    Yea definitely happy with the sti. It's the best handling car I've ever driven and even tho the Camaro had more power it's not that big of a difference to me because i don't really drive fast. But I couldn't be happier with my decision and definitely excited about meeting up with some of you guys to check out your progress.

    I'm curious what your gas mileage is. I'm getting like 15-16 MPG in my 2015 STi. I do primarily short-distance city driving so I know that's hurting my average.

    Hello and welcome!

    Amazing looking Camaro, especially with the debadged front and smoked rear lights, looks very mean. A buddy of mine had a similar front but kept his red "SS" badge to show-off to others haha.

    With that said, nice switch, and glad you are liking the new Rex dude!

    Hate to bump but can you please let me know what is the name of your Vortex Generator (99% sure it's the SPT one but just wanna double-check) and Rear-Bumper Diffuser good sir?

    Also, I can see your side-skirts are from Cobb but what about the front lip?

    If you can post links or just give me the names that would be greatly appreciated!

    welcome to the club. Nice STI and that's also a beautiful camaro. How are you digging the switch from rear to all wheel drive so far?

    Even as we become a more global society every day, it's amazing that architectural preferences vary so widely from region to region. We don't have houses anything like that here in the Bay Area.

    But we can all agree on one thing...Subaru!
