    another new guy

    Just wanted to say hi. Bought an 06 STI about 6 weeks ago. Traded in my 03 stage 4 WRX with smokey turbo stealth mode to get it.

    When it was unmodified I was kind of disapointed with it. I have a Perrin downpipe with a HKS High Power exhaust and PdxTunings base AccessPort map now. Stock my old car would have out ran it now it feels much closer power wise.

    Thanks, I really wanted to keep the bugeye but I needed a 6sp r180 diff ect. I was going to do the swap this summer but then my turbo decided to die. I started to think about costs and went to the dealership and talked to the internet sales manager. He offered me a deal I couldn't refuse.... trade my bugeye in for about 3,000 less than I paid brand new and sell me the STI for invoice. Obviously I went for it.

    Very nice. How did you like those UK300 lights on your old bugeye?
