Default 07 UGM STI Limited, The Gentleman's Mistress: FOR SALE Link Post 756

For your viewing pleasure: The Gentleman's STI

History: As I'm sure some of you have seen, I've been searching for a Limited for the last month or so, and one literally fell into my lap locally. I'm now the proud owner of UGM #576! Didn't think that would every happen! I'm having a blast with the car so far, and have already done more since I picked it up yesterday than I did with my previous car (2000 Maxima with suspension mods). It was also already at Stage 2, which is handy!

This is my DD/track/autocross vehicle. STM, Street Tire Modified, is a local class my region has created for the people that just want to come out and run. Basically run-what-you-brung, as long as it's on street tires (treadwear of 140 and above). I've only done 2 track days so far, but I plan to do more, soon...

Since 2011, I've been fortunate to secure two companies as sponsors, Feal Suspension and EBC Brakes. Feal provides suspension services for a variety of products, especially Hotbits and Whiteline, and they also offer a great alternative to the Ohlins FPS for the 05-07 STI in the form of a revalve for the OEM struts. EBC provides a variety of braking hardware.

Well, this past weekend I installed a Pioneer AVIC-D3 with the bluetooth module that I bought off Ebay. Install went off (relatively) painlessly. Hooked up the mike on the steering column and stuck the BT module behind the A/C Controls. I also mounted the GPS antenna underneath the clock on top of the air vents.

I've also done 1 autocross event so far. I've got a lot to learn about how this car responds on-course. I'm likely going to invest in RCE sways front and rear to help it rotate better. Don't want to touch the suspension quite yet. Or should I say, my wallet doesn't want me to!

w00t!! I love Limiteds. I tried to get one when I bought my 07 but wasn't available. When you described yours as "Gentleman's STI" I expected to see some scantily clad ladies . Post more pics of the car and mods.

If you really want some coilovers I'll have some very low mileage T0's for sale in 2-4 weeks or so. You can PM if interested.

More Pics!

^ Thanks for the compliments! I'll have to take some more photos sometime soon. She's a little dirty right now, as I just went on a Dragon run on Sunday... I'm not sure if I'm interested in T0s at the moment, trying to keep my wallet from killing me in my sleep!
