Ran into a guy driving a blue 2015 STI w/base wheels today here in Austin, TX. Don't recall the name (my car: silver 2015). Give me a shout--would like to hear more about the exhaust mods!

That would be me, David. Currently the car has only some basic mods-nothing to crazy. Cobb downpipe, tomei equal length header, DW65c fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator kit, and an e-tune by Torqued Performance. The power band is much more linear now but it pulls real nice.

EDIT: I also have Group N shifter bushing, transmission mount, pitch stop, and crossmember bushings.

How about yourself?

Hey fellow Austinites. Are you guys happy with your cars? Anything you would do differently now that you've had your cars for a bit?

I'm talking to the Georgetown dealership about finding a car with the specs I want. Apparently you can't order STIs with navs unless they are black or blue now. The sales rep said he thinks navs are being replaced with the 2016 with the outback/legacy nav which has limited what he can order.

I'm still a little on the fence about waiting for the 2016 STI announce, but if the dealer can't find a standard STI in dark gray metallic and options I want, I'll have to wait.

Best,
Neal

I'm too far away to hear how it sounds in person, but can you post a vid of the exhaust? I'm considering the Tomei ELH with the Tomei downpipe I have coming. Did you go with a catted DP?

Mostly stock--brake pads, Star Specs, proper alignment.

Check with dealerships in other cities, too--Subaru is good about doing inventory swaps. I found the car I wanted in Houston and arranged the purchase through my local shop.
