Default droideka's '08 AW STi - COBB AP stg 1 install - pg 2

look everyone, it's a stock '08! *snicker*

i had a moderately-modded stg 2 '04 STi which i traded for an '07 Legacy GT 5MT 14 months ago that bored me to tears and now i'm back in the STi family with an '08 Aspen White Base! Ipod adapter is the only option (and it's a slick option that integrates VERY well with my 2nd gen nano. LOVE controlling the damn thing with the HU now) and the mods will soon commence as i just picked up my '08 AP with about 2 weeks left before the maps become available.



Picked her up wednesday night and absolutely LOVE it. IMO, it's a perfect marriage of the brashness of the '04-'07 and the plushness of a Legacy GT. i can see what some people have to complain about regarding the interior materials picking up scuffs, but you know what? grab a damp cloth and wipe it the fvck off. problem solved. I've got about 200 miles on the car and have started to push it now that the tires and brakes are wearing in. It's going to be a ton of fun once i get a DP and AP hooked up, I can tell you that. I happen to like the way the car handles, especially how the rearend reacts to steering input around rough shod corners, compliant and communicative at the same time. My '04 would get upset by a pebble when hanging the rear end out and i always found myself trail braking to bring it back in line. as an aside, i had a significant amount of track time in my '04 complete with a rollbar and harnesses so i'm not a n00b to high-speed handling nuances. i can't wait to get the '08 out to Motorsport Ranch.

anyway... on to the pics.
