Default 06STIlin's 2008 OBP is now for sale.... Check it out!!!!

Well here goes it! Journal Time.

Not new to IWSTI or the Subaru STi community. I'm the previous owner of a 2006 OBP STi. I've just traded that bad boy in for a new 2008 OBP STi. I'll be updating regularly with new mods and pics and stories. I'll also include some pictures of some previously owned cars. Keep checking for updates and enjoy.



I bought the GRB STi on November 16, 2008 from Stohlman Subaru of Tysons in Vienna, VA. It was a total spur of the moment, impulse buy. My wife of all people informed me of the $7000/0% for 63 month incentive deal on the new STi. I had been toying with the idea of getting a new car for a few months because I usually get bored with my vehicle after a few years. So I drove over in my 06 to see if they had anything I liked. I had originally intended on buying an Aspen White or WRB. I told myself that I had enough of the nightmare of keeping a black car clean. Well they had 2 AW STis, one Gold BBS/NAV and another base package. I loved the premium package, however I noticed that the plastic part of the hood scoop was a different shade of white than the rest of the hood. The base package AW had the same problem, and the sales guy told me that it was typical of the AWs. Well there goes that. On to the WRB they had one, non BBS and it was parked next to a OBP. Well looking at them side by side I couldn't help but fall in love with the OBP AGAIN! The black just speaks to me. So I was really happy with the trade in value they gave me on the 06, I only had 21000 miles on it, no accidents, and hella clean. Went next door to the Mitsubishi dealer to check out the new EVO, just to keep an open mind and have an option. Well that dealer has a no test drive policy which prompts my go to hell policy. I even talked to the manager and told him that I was about to purchase the STi and I had my vehicle already appraised and I wasn't out for a joy ride. He refused to make an exception for a serious possible customer so he's a complete douche! In fact, when I bought my 06 I tried the same tactic and was refused then and ended up with the STi. Chalk up 2 lost sales for Mitsubishi for being douche bags. Well I wasn't too impressed with the EVO anyways, I liked the aggressive looks but the interior is way too cheap to justify a $40,000 price tag. So I did the paper work shuffle, got the dealer to throw in 2 years free maintenance package and drove my new toy home. 2008 OBP STi Non BBS, STi Short Shift package, 55mi.

Very hard...I think its called buyers remorse! Its hard to go from a modded STi to a stock anything. I just need to get the new car up to snuff and it should be quite fun to drive!
