Default How long does the excitement last?

I am sure everyone was extremely excited and desperate to get their STI. My Question is, how long does this excitement last after you get the car? When do you start to get bored of the car or you don't feel it as special as before? Does it last for one year / two years? Or does this excitement stay there forever (i hope)

Everytime I see my car I get excited. Everytime I look in the rear view and see my big wing I get excited. Drive in 'i' mode enough to where s# makes me smile still. Rev matching pops and crackles make me smile x10.
I love this car!

It'll be there forever. I wake up everyday excited to drive mine to work. Once you start making it your own then you'll fall in love with it even more.

Default Re: How long does the excitement last?

I've had my car for 6 years now. I bought it brand new back in 2011 when the sti sedan came out again. To this day, i still do a double take as i walk away after i park it. I am still happy to get in and drive it. Power wise im pretty content with it, stage 3 is more than enough for daily driving and spirited drives.

I think if you ever get bored of the car, then its time to upgrade the suspension and up the power. That should keep you happy for years with this car.

It's subjective. I know people who get bored after 1-2 years. Me, I loved my 2013 STI especially after the mods. After 4.5 years it was still a joy to drive.

Depends on if you liked it alot. My 08 STI I had for almost 6 years, but got bored near 4.5-5 years.

My 15 I'm bored after 3 years so switching to 18. I felt they didn't give enough good options for the 15 that's why. 18 should suffice at least 3-4 years.

To me it's about the lifestyle you lead, I just started a mobile detailing business and each year I bring more people/gear on my camping/cottage trips. I'm thinking of trading in my STi and get a midsize pickup because I need the tow/cargo space and ground clearance. If I can financially afford two vehicles, I wouldn't get rid of my STi and drive it every chance I get, but I've outgrown it as my only car.

I denno, every one of my cars I enjoyed up until the very end. If you get bored of your car, you bought the wrong car? Very subjective topic. My pop still gets a kick out of his 911S - and he's owned it for 8 years.
