Whats up guys??
My name is Daniel and I live in Dallas, TX. I'm in the process(the loan people love taking their sweet time) on buying a 2005 STi!! The deal is done but the loan people have to inspect the car. They said it will probably be until next week before I can pick it up. I'm so excited!
It's actually an interesting story. I currently have 1992 RS convertible and I love it to death but lately it has been giving me way too many problems. I then moved on and looked at the VW R32 and I loved it...until I saw it in person...NOT my style. I looked at all kinds of imports and for some strange reason I forgot all about the Subaru and the ...evolution*cough*. I'm not going to lie, I looked at a bunch of Evo's first until I almost bought one but the deal turned sour because the owner lied to me about the price and the transmission was going out. I was really pissed. Then, I saw a Subaru WRX and I fell in love with it. I went all out and looked up its history and I loved it. I looked at regular WRXs first and never thought about the STI. Until I got my new job! So, I knew I couldn't afford a new one so I got a used one. I jumped on this one quick because I found some other ones but 2004 and they sold quick.
I thought it was an excellent deal. It was about 24000 for the car which ended about like around 25000 with taxes. It's an 05 and I was in the process of buying an 04 for about 25K WITHOUT taxes until I came accross this one.
I haven't even test driven it yet. But the loan people are going to give it a good throughout inspection before I get it. I live in Dallas and the car is in Houston soo...
I'm also really nervous. This is going to be my first stick(not counting the stick truck I drove for a while). I test drove one at the agency and I stalled it all the time on stops but I ran smoothly while shifting gears. Hopefully it won't tear up my transmission with my newbie. I'm sure I'll pick it up quick.
What do you guys think?

BTW: Do all STI's come with a short-shift? Does it seem like that one has it? Doesn't seem like it IMO.
