Is this different in the U.S model STI for 2008, my thoughts obviously are buying one in the future however I spotted this post in the journal section abouty a Spec R. I dont recall this as an option here in the states or did I miss it !! I attatched the members link below, its in the members Journal Section under RED STI / Spec R ....

Thnx Members & Yes I am brand new here to the site. Just trying to get more educated on the STI...

He's overseas... they get better seats and push button start!

Who knows if it will end up here. I would "guess" no, but that's as good as anybody can do... guess.

They always save the last little cool tricks, for overseas stuff...

OK thanx, I didnt recall seeing those seats in the dealers car I sat in either, I thought the where all alacantara correct.

Let alone the push button start / stop. Is the U.S. spec car considered a "C" & the oversea's model considered the "R" ??

No, the USDM cars also have alacantara and leather 2-tone... they're just not as nicely bolstered, and aren't the same "Recaro's" that they get...

I can't imagine it would be difficult to install this button

This would be great, but a retrofit might be tricky and at the very least expensive. On the Infiniti system if I'm not mistaken you need to integrate it with CANBUS and you need a bunch of different receivers/transmitters in the car, not to mention the one you need in your pocket. It worked well but would be a lot cheaper if installed at the factory.

Heres for hoping...

Aftermarket wise it is and very expensive to boot. They're 2 completely different systems and all the wiring changes along with it. Push start isn't just nice cause you push a button to start it(which IMO isn't what I care about) but the fact that you never have to take your keys or keyfob out of your pocket. BMW went a step further and made the transmitter a credit card basically so it doesn't even take up space in your pockets. It's also another step in security and anti-theft.

If some 18 year old can install an alarm system with 10 sensors all over the car that can remote start my car and detect all sorts of other things and do it all in a few hours....there is no way I believe that a button that was designed specifically for the STI would be that hard.
