Story:

** I used to have a 2006 STi, here was the old journal: https://www.iwsti.com/forums/members-...le-inside.html

Purchased the 2008 on February 16th, 2008, Aspen White base model. I couldn't justify $2k on wheels and fog lights when I would probably replace those anyway. 7 days after purchase, I drove the vehicle to El Toro, CA for the GReddy Performance Festival, I had 720 break-in miles on it and I couldn't take it anymore, I autocrossed it. The following weekend after that I went to Spring Mountain Motorpark for a track day with roughly 1200 miles on it.

Impressions: The car has a LOT of potential. I never had a chance to track my 2006 STi stock, but the stock 08 is only 2 seconds off at a 60 second autocross and 10 seconds off at a 3.1 mile road course than my decently modded 2006. I'm pretty confident that with the same amount of mods, the 2008 will be significantly quicker than my 2006 was.

July 13th, 2008, I dropped the vehicle off to my contact at GReddy Performance in Irvine, CA, and they used the vehicle for product development. The vehicle was going to be in SEMA, but as you probably know, are struggling in the weak economy and decided to pull out and save the money. They finished the vehicle in time for the Red Bull Formula Drift event in Long Beach, CA on November 15th and 16th and the vehicle debuted. I took delivery of the vehicle the following weekend, Nov. 23rd, 2008.

Wow, that is a good start to your '08. What size rims are you looking to run?

Haven't decided the exact size, as different manufacturers will offer different sizes and offsets. I want to run a 265 wide tire, lowered with only a moderate alignment, and minimal to no fender rolling.

From what it looks like, 18x9 +40 ish.
