There's a chance I might just drop out of the JDM scene though, it's just not what it used to be.

Either way, I believe I should've spent a little more time on this board, as opposed to Nasioc.
this car is way too good to sell, it is something you would pass on to your kids

I followed your first build thread on here and I loved every aspect of it. Bummer to hear you're selling it though I look forward to see what you do with the '13. Maybe a Varis widebody?

That is an exceptionally beautiful car. It exudes not only the pride that you have in it, but that of the many talented, creative and obsessive people who developed everything that went into it. Your goal of a car that truly is a statement of purpose and pride is supremely fulfilled. So well executed. I can not help but echo everyone else who has chimed in, you should not sell that car. At the least you should not part it out. There are people out there with similar mindsets and appreciations of quality and purpose, I am sure you can find someone to give you a good price on her. Granted, no-one will ever appreciate the car the way you, its builder does. But to disassemble engineered art is such a pity. Let her live!

Thank you, I really appreciate all the kind words you've had to say about the STi.

It's definitely hard to take the car apart and there's a large part of me that just wants to stop the part out, which I've done before. That said, there's simply too much gone, already, for me to stop now.

I can't replace a good chunk of the parts I've sold, sort of buying them back, but I think it'll be alright.

I'm pretty confident I won't be leaving the JDM scene, I simply love it too much.

Thank you, I really appreciate that! If I go with a '13 STi, I'm sure I'll find a way to make it clean, we'll just have to see.

Thank you. There's nothing else I could say that would more thoroughly encapsulate my appreciation for the support.

Are you running the OBD2 connection for the Pista? Any other sensors or GPS data for it?

How do you like the system?

Yes, I'm running the OBD2 connection and I don't have any other sensors hooked up.

In short, I love the system - it's superb.

The only complaint that I have is that there's 0 support for a gas gauge, you need the factory cluster for that.

Gas gauge aside, I just love it.

...taking the STi apart is so damn depressing.

There's a large part of me that wants to just keep it, but then there's the other side that's itching to start something new.

I like the idea of a '13 MY STi, but it just doesn't really light the fire in me like my '07 did.

Maybe I could just rebuild my '07, in a different way.
