i got mine today, drove 1073 miles coming back and was using 91 octane throughout until i got here and i put in 93 octane, i tell u, 93 octanes let the car runs so much better and faster
anyways, i suck in shifting the sti, dunno, manuals are always hard for me, any tips, car pulls, but no back to the seat feeling like i was hoping for
i got silver/silver
is there any way to make the bulbs flash when i alarm on the car?
and where is a good place to get the arm rest extension
and damn the shift knob is ugly, maybe that's why it's angry with me and won't let me shift nicely

what were you driving before. seems to pull plenty nice to me given i'm coming from 140hp 12year-old machine.

i would have never thought i would have liked the look of silver/silver until i saw that picture of one next to the barn in pennsylvania. that thing is simply glamorous.

yeah, i like the boot, but nob is ugly; small with a rubber-like cap. i want black anodized alumnium with an engraved shift pattern. whatever i get to replace it has to have the shift pattern on it.

I got mine from the dealer, installed it myself... only 4 screws. My brother bought one off of ebay, but in the end only ended up saving $20... except mine is covered by subaru for 5 Years. :)

Mine flash, when it is not in valet mode. I have the standard subaru security system upgrade. The flyer I got with it says that they will not flash with aftermarket alarms... So I don't know if it is possible.

This is from the workshop manual -

6. ANSWER BACK (BUZZER SIGNALING) ON/OFF SELECTION
1) Push the transmitter’s UNLOCK button.
2) Push the transmitter’s LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for more than 2 seconds to
activate the answer back function and push them again to deactivate it.
3) When the answer back function is activated, the buzzer will sound once and the hazard warning
lights flash once. When it is deactivated, the buzzer will sound twice and the hazard warning lights
flash twice.

Hope it helps.

my 2 cents: buy the arm reest from teh dealer - get them to give you a discount of some sort, because you can find them on e-bay - i did.

but mine sux, as the latch keeps falling off, and now i cant take it back...
