Default WHITE PEARL's 2009 SATIN WHITE PEARL STI

Finally, I can write my own Journal....I'll just start out, my name is Miguel and I'm an accountant. I know, funny to see an accountant with a STI, but not all accountants are boring

This is my second Subaru, and my second STI. I previously had a OBP 07 STI, and loved every minute i was in the car.

Let me just start out my super tough story on how i acquired this new STI. My old STI met an unfortunate end, and originally the insurance company wanted to fix it, but the chasis damage was so severe it sent ripples from the trunk to the drivers seat. I was told it could be fixed, was happy, but then those dreams were shattered. They totaled the car out and i got the downpayment for the new STI. I was never a big fan on the hatch/wagon, but i loved the interior. I decided it was easier to buy a new STI, and so the story begins.

I always wanted a SWP STI, i was suppossed to get a SWP 07 but my d$$k of a friend got it from under my nose, and i didn't want to be like him so i got black. With a new car, i wanted white, and SWP was the new color and obviosuly i wanted it bad with gold rims. The problem is NO DEALARSHIP in Southern California had one, with less than 10 miles on the odometer.I called them all. So after being told one thing and then something else from a few dealarships, i gave up hope. I was heartbroken. I thought a dealarship found the car i wanted, got my hopes up and then they shattered them. I was down and out, and gave up hope. I dont know if it was fate, but right as i put my phone down i get a call from Sean Kelley from South Coast Subaru. He tells me, "i remember you were looking for a SWP STI, we just got one in". I told him I'll be there TOMMOROW with cash in hand. I was there at 9:30 am. Sure enough, they had it and it still had the white plastic on it. I was told it arrived the day before, problem was it was fully loaded. More options than I wanted, but I was happy to get it. Did the paperwork, but didn't get the loan approved. ARGGHHHH!.Dagger in the heart....But Brady and all the finacial guys helped me out and got the loan done. I finally got to drive it two days later....haha...Sean was there when i picked up the car and finally drove it off...

Pictures from the dealarship..bad boy had 8 miles on the clock...(which i forgot to take a pciture of )..Had to drive it back home during RUSH HOUR.....




at a meet

congrats on the new car! i had a hard time finding SWP also. it's going to be delivered to the dealership soon and the wait is killing me. apparently they have a hard time knowing excatly when it will be in so every time i get a call i get very disappointed when it's not to say the car is ready

and thanks for defeating the "all accountants are boring" thing. i guess i was wrong haha jk man. enjoy the car.
