The plan with the GR is to create a well rounded car, for both the street and the track. This will be my daily driver, my track warrior, my winter beater, my weekend cruiser... This will be my Toy.

Function is King.

Here she is! fresh off the train from BC! (sorry for cell phone pics)

However, still being in the dead of winter, and with no more room in either of our parking garages, i won't be able to pick up the car till the snow melts to allow me to park the car on our drive way.

The Car has 14km on it, and is ready to be picked up anytime.

Congrats! Nice write up there as I was in a similar situation as you when i was searching for a new car. I narrowed it down to an A4, 335i, Evo GSR, and the Sti. I also did not get to test drive the Sti but did manage to try out the 265. I'm coming from an LGT and WRX so i believe i have an idea of what the Sti will feel like although i have never been in one. My car does not arrive until Mar but i am anxiously anticipating the arrival date especially with every thread that i read on this board along with TSC and NASIOC.
Since i know you have done your homework on these cars, i was wondering where you ordered your whiteline sways and red tail light overlays? I also live in T.O and would prefer to deal with local shops if i could to save on shipping and duties.

Thanks guys.

Innes, did you by chance buy the car from Markham Subaru? I think i may have been looking into that particular STi myself, and even placed an offer and deposit for it... until my friend told me that his dealership just got two STis fresh off the train.

As far as local parts.. Budds Subaru sells/can source alot of parts for fellow fanatics. However, they don't do 'under the table' deals, and we do get charged full taxes... It's an expensive way to go.

'Import Image', a sponsor of this site, will also send parts over the boarder to us with a low declared value, helping us save on duties. His shipping prices is very fair too, so in the end, I think he's going to be the best supplier for us north of the boarder. If you want, we can do a mini group buy and save even more on shipping.

I got my 'Bat' tail overlays from the man himself, No customs/duties to worry about because he sends them as a letter, and not a package. PM him.

Derek.

I do. I paid every cent of my down payment and will be paying the monthly lease by myself.

Nice write up. So you're paying for a car that's sitting on the dealer lot? Or do the lease payments start when you drive off the lot? Why not wait for the economy to go down the crapper some more before pulling the trigger? I know, so many questions. Congrats on the ride!
