08/22/10 got car back from yimi and starting the 1200 break-in
05/19/11 the car blew her 3rd motor.... even after a supposed solid rebuild... its time to move on...
05/28/11 got car back from Yimi and everything had checked out fine. the motor was burning oil somehow but after the oil level was corrected, she ran just like before...

short story:

this is my first subaru. i have had several friends that have owned subarus and sti's tell me how wonderful the car is. in december of 2007, both my 96 chevy impala ss and my 2000 ford contour svt became victims of the rain storms. i was in the market for a lil something different from what i have been driving. i was looking for something that had awd, 6sp mt, turbo motor, all in a wagon platform. i was considering the a3, ms3, and the saab 93 aero xwd (which wasn't available to the market yet). non of the aforementioned cars met my criteria. the new 08's just came out. when i saw the dgm with bbs on the subaru website, i immediately fell in love, i had to check it out for myself. it was love at first sight!! the new 5 door configuration was just what i was looking for! turbo, awd, 6mt, and its a wagon... er hatchback...

i brought her home on 01/06/08 and heres a pic of her before i drove her off the lot. by the way, the AW stands for Attention Whore, for the amount of attention this car gets, mostly unsolicited attention...

Default DONE WITH HER... the "Love Affair" is OVER...







heres a few pics of the v limited lip just installed



imo, the v limited spoiler is very very understated. i am waiting on the bottom rubber piece to come in. seeing all the other pics of others with the bottom added, i am certain it will give the spoiler a more pronounced appearance.

I like the lip a lot, but its a bit understated. I don't want something ricey saying "Hey, check out how many lines I've got!" but I'd def like something that sticks out a bit more.

Even still, its a huge improvement over not having one at all, I am jealous!

i finally got my cobb ap today after some anxious anticipation. i believe it to be a much better tune than what came on the car. thought essentially its a detune for the i mode. the boost is locked at 5psi in the first two gears. i will be driving in the i tomorrow to see what the rest of the boost is logged at. the s and s# is neck snapping fast! addiction factor = 110%



i got the bottom piece for my front v limited... can't wait to get this on to protect the v limited...
