my first time behind the wheel of the sti, (WRC Obsessed's ride) .

all i can say is HOLY CRAP

i was so totally impressed with the raw attractiveness of the WRX, i was completley unprepared for the STi.

this is a true driver's car. unbridled, fun, overwhelming... i'm pretty much speechless. it reminded me of experiences driving the overpowered 540, and modified v8 mustangs.

sorry for bouncing off the rev limiter bri. :D the gearing was so different, i was unprepared for the insane drive through each gear. it's so short i was shocked.

i guess i'm way behind the times here, but just thought i'd share my experience.

Yes, it was nice seeing the rev warning light blink a few times. :)

I told you the thing is a beast. Glad you enjoyed the drive. Any time.

I got my first ride in an STi a few days ago and I was amazed by how powerful it was too.

I really have a bad case of turbo envy now. :(

:rotfl: Oh sniggety!

I got to ride in a 300+whp STi and it was great fun. :eek3: :)

I can only imagine what it would be like in that guy's 536hp Rex. Sheebus.

Don't pick on the non-drinker. He may have very valid reasons. I never had a drink until just a couple of years ago... :)

I've purposely avoided the STi test drive. I don't want to feel the sensation of the superior low end torque, 6-speed stronger tranny, DCCD, etc, because I need to hold on to my car for a while yet. :wiggles:

Only in his dreams. :D

It's nice to be in the passenger's seat. Driving the car now for a few months I have gotten used to the power and it doesn't feel like anything major but sitting in the passenger's seat has brought back the understanding of how bad ass this car is. :D

My monthly payments are only $30 more than my WRX and I have a 4 year loan instead of a 5. :)

Well worth it.

Did you get a great interest rate, dump a bunch of cash in, or what? Nice job with the financing...

I got a great deal on the car (I bought it used) and I dumped the insurance money that I got from my old car into it. Crappy interest rate though - 6.5%
