    is your spt exhaust kind of quiet? i've never heard it from outside the car because im always driving it, but it seems quiet compared to when im riding in my friend's 06 sti. is it louder on the STI or is it because i have a moderate exhaust leak? haha

    yeah, and yours might sound either a little quieter or a little bit higher pitched because your displacement is .5 liter smaller than me. i dont know, i think its jsut me being picky, but yeah i get my leak fixed on saturday and hopefully it'll be louder then

    I wish I would have gotten an STi also, I would love to be able to trade my car in but I bought this car a year ago and have a good amount to pay on it plus grad school won't be over for 2 years. If the parents would love to jump in and help out that would be amazing but I don't see it happening so in two or three years I hope to make it happen

    i went to community college for a business management degree, and i'm climbing the ranks in a bank - im only 19 so im still living at home for a while, so i'm def paying this car off ASAP. then i could either mod this car out or get an STI...but i would rather mod this car and get some econobox for a daily driver.

    haha Well I am hoping to make the big bucks but there is a lot I will have to payback after 6 years of college so that is a big trade off for the amount of debt school puts most people in.
