    Post Hello all!

    Well this is my first time on this forum, its actually my first time on any forum for that matter. I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. I've been a guest on this forum for a while and I'm bored right now so I figured it would be a great time to actually become a member. As you can probably tell from the name I drive an 06 Saleen mustang supercharged. To be completely honest it scares the piss ouf of me. For this reason I'm hoping to sell it starting in september. I've always been a ford guy, but I've kept an open mind about anything that can haul ass. A friend of mine had an 03 wrx wagon and i've been interested in subies since then, but never thought of owning one. Long story short i'm hoping to buy an 05 sti before the end of the year. I'm pretty new to import cars so any advice will be appreciated. The little bit that I think I know about subarus can always be improved upon.

    Welcome! The WRX you can have fun in all year around! Saleens are nice cars, though.

    Welcome! Very nice car you are getting rid of there. You have any pics? I am sure you will love the AWD of the subie though.

    I'll try and get some pics up in a few weeks. Man I love that car and hate to see it go, but its insanely responsive on the gas pedal and I'm looking for something with a lil more control.

    A good choice! STI is another beast on its own... there's none like it! I drive a 2005 WRX with popular mod path and test driving an STI still speaks for itself. It sounds like you're looking for power and control... it's exactly what you're looking at!

    It's also a good time to buy cars (any for that matter) since the 06 models will be pushed out of the lots, to bring in 2007 models. You may be able to cut some deal.

    Good luck and welcome!

    I might be back in the market for the new STI sedan!

    Since they'll likely deny your warranty on your first visit, make sure to take that into consideration while you're negotiating a price. Or look for a used one.

    There is a used black 05 im looking at, at the moment. Its only about an hour from home and its only had one owner with a lil under 6,000 miles. The guy is asking for 29,800. Is it worth it?
