Default SomeOneQC's 2016 STi

Hi y'all.

In 2004 I felt in visual love with the STi 2004 (blue with gold rim). I say visual because until September 2015, I never drove an STi or WRX and never sat in one. At that time I didn't wanted to anyway, because I knew that if I did, I would have wanted one right away.

I'm a new Subaru owner since September. Bought a used STi 2015 (38000km), sport package. I took a test drive for the 1st time with the seller/rep. Man, I was blown away! I was won! Already, after not even a 2 minutes drive. Got my dreamed car and it's a dream to drive. I'm still excited on how the car handle and the power/performance it have, stock... Woahhh !

I drove Subaru's car when I was younger, they were not mine. Also at that time, I wasn't conscious of the "World"

I remember driving my parent's Subaru XT4. It was fun! the car was white, with a weird shaped shifter. It was turbocharged. There was a button that once pressed, the car suspension would lower at 100km/h. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_XT

After that they got a Legacy... At 16 years old I bouht my 1st car, going from a Camaro to a Sprint turbo, a Z24, an SE-R and a Cruze (which was exchange for the STi).
Pictures here: SomeOne's Website - Car's I've owned

As of today, the 2015 is now at 50046km. I've place an ordered a brand new 2016, same package. I will take possession of it on January 15th, 2016. Can't wait.

Here are the extra accessories that I bought for the 2016, they will be installed by the dealer:

- Rally Armor Mud flaps, black with reg logo.
- Tinted windows.
- Windows rain deflector.
- JDM rear light.
- Hella horn supertone.
- Orbit intelligent remote starter.
- TAG localisation system.
- Clear bra.

I already have the Enkei wheel, with winter tires, on the 2015. The dealer will make the switch on the 2016 when I arrive. I will install the Raceseng blue translucent shift knob and the Weathertech FloorLiner myselft, just before taking the road to get back home. +/- 600km.

I will install the Fumoto quick engine oil drain valve on when I do the 1st oil change. I think I will do it at 2000km (+/-1242 miles). For the new oil, I will use using the blue Subaru oil filter with AMSOil Signature Series 5W-30. Then every 4, 5000km or every 3 month.

I'm careful with my things. I want to keep them for ever, so I take good care of them. I will be gentle with the break in.

This is it for now, next time it will be pictures of the new 2016, maybe with me at the dealer.

To be continued...

Congrats and welcome! Why the switch from a 15 to a 16?

Thanks. I didn't had time to complete my previous post, soon.

For the switch to the 2016, well... that is just me... impulsive buyer. I saw the 2015 on the internet. It was used (38000 km, today at 50010) and with the stickers. I arranged a test drive with the dealer, I went and I was blown away, so I bought it... BUT I was there! Onsite at the dealer! Which is at 500 km from my place. Spring 2016 there should be a dealer opening, closer, 100km from here. So I was there, but I never thought to ask for the price of a brand new 2016...

It only came into my mind after I was back home. I looked up on the internet and found out the difference, something like 3, 4000$. I was OK to pay that much to have a brand new car, zero something km on it, full warranty and that I will break in it myself.

Some people say that, "sometime you have to pay for your mistake" hehehe.

I'm going to do the exchange on January 15th! In exactly 2 weeks, can't wait to see it!

Thanks again.

It is done ! I got my STi 2016 !!

I took the road on january 14th, 500km later I was at Saint-Jérôme, QC, I slept there. The next morning I went to Lachute, 30 min from Saint-Jérôme, to meet Mathieu my seller and take possession of the car. The tech in the shop switch my rims (with winter tire on it) onto the new 2016.

I left Lachute around noon, arrived at my home at 18h00.

I'm really happy with the car, all the options were there.

I'm already at 600 km, doing the break in, I don't exceed 4000 RPM, engine break, gentle with it.

Vidéo and photos to come today.

Nice. I almost wish we got snow here, I bet that's fun, but at the same time I probably wouldn't like how dirty my car would be.

Thanks !

Indeed it is very fun, even if I'm still learning

Also true for dirty car, especially doing highway road when salt or sand are applied. The front and back bumpers get dirty. Other time, when it's just clean white snow on the road, the front and rear get fill, can't see lights or plate, but all white snow, no dirt.

Time to time, I get to a self service cleaning station, hot water, high pressure. Then I bring it back home in the heated garage. I'm thinking of getting an antirust traitement for my car. I heard that it isn't good for a car to have a heated garage.

Thanks again !
