    New owner of #38/800

    I just picked up #38 of the 800 ST Limiteds.

    there just simply isn't a more prefect car made. Beautiful interior, no whale tale, understated looks... it just will blow everything else under $50,000 away.

    The best part is that the colorado springs dealer did NOT add 1 red penny in the price of the car over MSRP - meaning that it was cheaper than most of the 2006's on their lot... so, i had to ditch my original plan to pick up a black 06 and go with the 07.

    The other nice thing is that they put in little things - like an outside air-temp guage, a freaking hockeystick/ski passthru for the back seat.... in short - its the STI done right.

    I am very lucky that i held out and got the last one in south colorado.

    Hope to see you all around!

    If I knew this car was coming out last year I would have saved my pennies another 12 months and just got that. Those cars are truly stunning. I am ultra jealous of you right now. Hopefully they will continue to make these next year and hopefully they will keep it as a limited producation vehicle so the market isnt flooded.

    Congrats on the new car, and that's the lowest # that i've seen so far.

    They really do look absolutely amazing. I would rather have cloth seats than leather. Also, the wheels on them look good, but I would try to get some of those 18" BBS wheels off the S204. That would be sick.

    Very nice pickup.

    I am REALLY glad that Subaru decided to introduce this car and I am hoping that in the future they offer more of them. You cannot really argue with your typical STi performance of power, braking, and handling and on top of that now get nice heated leather seats, more sound deadening, a more classy look, and a moonroof all for under $35,000.

    I think if I had money to spend and was looking for a car in this price range, there would be no doubt I would get this. You just cannot mess with it for the price IMO.

    I think an STI Limited with protuned Stage2 is the perfect daily driver.

    Congratz! A SWP STI Limited came to our meet, great looking cars. I think the STI Limited is the perfect choice. All the performance + leather, pass through, front/rear lips.

    I think next year when I get my pay raise this will be my next car. I've tossed around between that and the Spec-B but I want something with a DCCD not a set split. I've already started to price them and if you find a dealer not wanting a huge markup on the car the are a bargain. I plan on keeping it stock menus STG-1 to work kinks out of the DBW system.
