Default 2006 WRB STi Wannabe limited

Ive always been a fan of the limited STi. When the time was right for me to get into another Subaru i searched long and hard. Living in Alaska my choices where slim. I came across a 2006 STI on craigslist that was WAY over priced but i decided to go look at it anyways. The owner and i stayed in contact for a few weeks negotiating on prices finally agreeing on a number we could both live with.

Heres the first picture i have of it:



When i bought it it was stock minus a Cobb catback, 2005 tail lights and Compustar autostart

Redoing the interior!!!

I hate blue carpet



Fixed:



I found a local guy selling his 2006 WRX limited interior so i picked that up:



The seats are low milage & heated!!! (great for Alaska)

I wanted a double din that was low key, had no buttons or anything gaudy. I choose the Pioneer AppRadio and got a killer deal on it at bestbuy



Doing the whole limited STi theme I bought the Limited STi center console from subarugenuineparts.com



All put together

Looking good man. Why did you change the I/C to a '12 one ... any significant improvement over old one?

You should give the engine bay a quick clean man ... would look so much better

Congratz on the purchase and keep her between the ditches!
