New Year's update. Still loving the shifter every time I use it. It's so quick, so precise, so much fun. Also still loving the seemingly endless surge of stage 2 power that takes me right to my shift point. I guess I can see why people want more than stage 2, but honestly I'm not planning on going any further for the forseeable future.

Next on the agenda: let there be light!

yeah stage 2 is fun. sometimes i feel like it's not fast. but then sometimes i'll hit the powerband just right and i'm like damn drive a different car for awhile, you'll really like it then . i've been driving my other cars for like 2 months. took the sti out for a joy ride and i about broke my neck

Can't help you there, Bruce... I thought you took care of that just after midnight on New Year's Day?

I really am. My car has rolled over 80,000 miles, many of those commuting to and from work. I still cinch down the CG-Lock when I approach those favorite ramps, and I still leave at least a little bit of rubber on them. I still love easing out of the stop signs onto those favorite straight stretches where I can rip through the gears. I still love it when I get to those parts of the trip where the road gets bumpy and twisty and oh-so interesting to those of us fortunate enough to drive a car as capable as an STi.

I still get a grin on my face, at some point or another, every time I drive it.

Sounds great Dave. I do miss mine. She would have around 65k on her now if I kept her. The '08's though have me itching to get another one. Someday soon after I can sit in one, maybe.
