    nick,

    you need to learn how to read, it said someone to work on my car, not put parts so whos the idiot, second i went to williams to test drive the new STi because i will be buying one in the spring and they said no because i "wasnt buying today" people that treat me like **** do not deserve my $. I have never had any trouble at any dealership and have owned everything from a ford to lexus to a caddy. So if you cant help, learn how to read.

    Thanks

    Walter

    looking forward to meeting all of you the next time you get together.

    Just an FYI....

    I have tried several dealerships and not one will let me drive an STI. Because of the car that it is, somewhat rare and very fast, you will not find a dealership that will let you drive one. Not to mention way too many people would drive them given the chance.

    Besides what does them letting you test drive a car have to do with them being an idiot. If it was my dealership I wouldn't let you drive the car for fun either. Go to a dodge dealership and try to drive a viper or an srt-10 ram. It won't happen unless you have the ability to and plan to buy that day. Or for that matter try to drive a corvette.

    If you are not planning on buying then what do you need to test drive for? Sorry for ranting, and I hope you get to test drive one, but it is not likely. Just being honest.

    hey,

    All i want to know is if anyone here knows anyplace that can tune my wrx, the fact that i got treated like SH*T at williams has nothing to do with me looking for a local car shop, i used to work for a dealership in NY and we had faster and more expensive cars then the sti, buyers would come in all the time and drive cars and buy even though they wanted to buy month from then, the fact is im not a punk kid out for a drive after all im a subaru owner looking for upgrade, i have been back in NY since and driven the new sti great car more then i expected, i have also talked to people that work at williams who told me that their abilities to tune a car that has upgrades is not at all there, Im not here to start fights, the fact is the manager would not even talk to me and thats unherd of from where i am, i have since purchased a suburban for my parents from shaheen and they turned over the keys to a 50k car and didnt even go with me on the test drive, can you agree with me that a porshe driver can drive up to any porshe dealership and take any car on the lot for a drive, i bought a lexus brand new no problem, i bough an caddy sts (300 HP V8) no problem, i bought a F-250 v-10 no problem, and i test drove the sti in NY no problem, because of my current financial situation i cant just buy a car but i am in the spring, and i explained this to the sales person before i went in to look at the car in the first place. enough about that i love my wrx and i dont belive, based on my limited experiance, that williams is the place to take it, if no one is able to point me in the right direction then i guess this isnt the forum for me, after all i thought that all wrx drivers looked out for each other, if im in the wrong place let me know. if i offended any williams employees my fault i do know one of them there and he is a good guy, SO IF ANYONE KNOWS A TUNER SHOP LET ME KNOW

    Thanks,
    Walter

    I have no idea about a shop to tune your car. I would bet the search function just might find some things.

    And really a bit less anger in your messages will get you alot farther.

    If you didn't like the way williams treated you, definatly stay away from the dealer in GR. They are horrible. Williams has the best service for subies in the country that I have seen. I am basing this from 4 dealers in MI, 2 in PA, 3 in Cali, and 1 in HI. Nobody will let you drive an STi, when I picked up mine, there was no shot that I was going to be able to drive it before purchase, anywhere. I ended up going to PA to pick up the car.
    For tuning I would say go over to www.nasioc.com and look up a guy by the name of jeorge (it is spelled weird). He is outside of chicago and well worth the drive, otherwise you can go over to godspeed and hope that dan gives you an ok tune for the buck.

    thanks

    I wrote subaru about not being able to drive one and at least they responded they say it's a dealership choice, I come from NY and a dealership that went all out to treat their costomers like gold, meybe I was suprised because i have never encounterd anything like that, I think it's an outrage that an subaru owner or a customer can be denied the basic option of a test drive, from my experiance thats what sells the car, especially a WRX, thats what sold me on the car. Anyways i appreciate the feedback, hows godspeed i wrote them an email havent heard anything back yet. Im having the cars computer acting up and the tein suspension is getting killed by all the potholes Im woried that the suspension will fall apart on these roads, Is anyone running it on a tein in MI if so how has it held up?

    I suggest not going with Godspeed. Jeorge from riftswrx.com (also on nasioc) is one of the best tuners in the country and is outside of chicago wich isn't too far from mid michigan.
    chad1043, welcome man. I am over in Allendale.

    Thanks for all the feedback

    It's so tough coming to a new state and looking for all the things one had back home, thanks for all the advice i appreciate it. Now if anyone knows about any twisted back roads I can have fun on around lansing also a nice big open area to have fun on when the snow comes that would be sweet.

    WEST SYYYYYYYDE Subies.

    I live in Muskegon, but work and commute every workday to GR. I have only seen a few Subies in my trips. Theres a silver one I seem to meet up with occasionally in the morning heading to GR just past the nunica exit.

    There are a few STI's in Muskegon, both Blue. One of them I know and the other guy NEVER waves...

    There's also a few silver wrx's in town. As far as GR I have met up with Nate from Nasioc and I believe he's in GR also. I would totally be up for some summer/spring cruising.

    Keep me in the loop!

    Not trying to get overly personal, just curious in what area of GR you work
