I come from the S2k world and traded by 03 recently. I'm now looking at the STI and have a black one with my name on it. I'm looking to decide tonight/tomorrow morning whether or not to move ahead and purchase.

The one I'm looking at has the short shifter. I would appreciate any feedback you guys have on your experiences with the '06 STI. Is the fun factor as great as it was with the S2k? I loved that car...

Anyway I'd appreciate any thoughts one way or the other before I make my decision...

I cant say I have driven in an s2000, but I can tell you one thing, if you get an STI you will not regret it one bit! You will be able to drive year round if you so choose, and trust me the smiles just keep getting bigger, after each freaking mile!!!!!!!! The 06 is a great idea, since you could probably get a good deal on a leftover 06

I say you pull the trigger, You wont look back!!!!!

here's a link to a thread about the spt short shifter combined with the TiC super shifter kit. The "ultimate shifter"

Also, the fun factor on the STi is up there, you won't regret your purchase, you know you want to do it...

STI is a great street car. I have never regretted it. The only car I would trade my 05 for is a white 06. Sexiest rex of them all.

It is a different kind of fun than the S2k; each has its merits. Since you have already had the Honda it won't hurt to try something different. :)

have you test driven one yet? If you dont i suggest you do, and it wont even compare to how the car really will perform once its yours, and out of break-in period

Buy an '07, it isn't worth a year of depreciation to save a $1000.

People that I know who have had Miata's (yes you have a S2k but they are pretty similar cars) say that the only car that was able to make them forget or give them the same feeling is an STi....
