Default NaoNao's 2008 OBP STi.

I've been wanting a STi for awhile now. I really was only interested in the 06-07 body style, until yesterday. After saving up for awhile and finally being in the position to trade in my car, I decided it was the perfect time for a new vehicle.
I went to the dealership to check if they had any 07's left on the lot (I already knew my chances were slim to nothing). Looking the lot over I didn't see any 07's left, but to my surprise there were 2 brand spanking new 2008 WRX STi's for the taking. Long story short, out of the 2 they had I fell in love/drove off with the OBP non BBS over the AW BBS showroom counterpart.

Sitting on the lot at North Park Subaru. Purchased on 01.28.08.



Here are some quick photos I snapped before leaving for work.





45 miles on the first drive home.



I absolutely love the way the 08's look in black.

My first/previous car was a 2002 Acura RSX type S. Switching over to a AWD 4 door turbo is like a night and day difference even just driving it normal through the break in period.

So that's what torque feels like , eh?

Reserved.

I think I'll enjoy it in stock form for awhile as far as adding performance mods. Until then I'll throw on some tint, find a radar detector, and some gauges. I plan on using it as a DD with some spirited driving here and there. I may also track it a few times or maybe even auto-x it somewhere down the line when it has several thousand miles under the hood.

Off to work now, I'll post up more pics and info later.

Nice car and purchase! I hate north park... their service department has been bad for me. I also live in San Antonio. It seems you are one of the few with an 08 STi. Congrats... hit me a PM if you are interested in cruising with STi's and Evo's on thursdays

Yeh I started real modding with my 03RSX-S then to my now 04STI.... I know that feeling.. But i do have to say.. RSX's with swaps and coils can handle VERY well

Oh I like it in black. As much as I like it in black, I´m always afraid of that color. I´m extra picky on small scratches, dings and rock chips. But they do look good when they´re shiny and clean.

Congrats
