hi guys I am a new convert to the Subaru family. i just placed my order for a new '08 STI in mica blue with the nav. system and silver BBS wheels. i am also a VW enthusiast and plan on staying in that arena as well as the subaru lifestyle. i do have some questions and would appreciate some recommendations.
1. i read that there are already some aftermarket upgrades available for the '08s
2. what ECU upgrades are recommended
3. i'm also interested in getting an exhaust, short shifter, and smoked taillights for it too.

~~here are some pics of my GTI in case anyone is interested:

thanks.. i've been a VW fan since i was 16. this past Fixxfest was the last show i've been to. i've been doing my internship for the past two semesters and dont really have time to attend the shows much lately. i will be driving it out to the 12 hours of sebring and it will be in the Porsche stable if anyone happens to stroll by. (don't ask but i've got some friends that agreed to let me hang with them)
and i will be posting some pics of both cars side by side in the driveway.

Greetings and welcome to the club!


I have always loved the Rabbit / Golf. I had a serious look at the 2004 R32 before I bought the WRX.

hey I had a tough choice deciding between the new R32 and STI. VW dropped the ball by only offering the DSG. I want a fun car to drive with a stick.
