Mine finally arrived! I picked it up this Saturday morning and have been absolutely excited about this car ever since (well, okay, honestly, I have been excited about it ever since I found out about the North American STi announcement early this year.)..

I moved from a silver Merc SLK '01 to this one. I am still in the process of breaking it in, but the growl of this beast has already made me fall in love. I must admit, though, that the steering ratio and interior have much to be desired. A smaller / more portable key (remote + key combo) would be nice, too.

Don't take me wrong -- this time around, the top priority for my car purchase was the performance (AWD, ~5 sec 60mph time, handling and more HP), so I am quite happy with the choice and its growling performance.

One mechanic who used to work at Subaru apparently said that I don't really need to break the car in as it is done by Subaru already ([email protected]?!), but I think I will break it in... I will err on the side of caution. :wink:

very nice man, looks good, trust me though the one thing you want is HID's. The light output from even the stock USDM HID's is without parallel.

rjhang,

Any chance you could give us the part # for the STi embroidered floormats? I called the dealer today and they had no idea that there was any such thing here in the US.

Thanks
Chris

Very Nice! I chose silver/silver too. Now that I see all these STi's out there I almost regret asking that I be placed such that I receive an early Sept. delivery to coincide with my bonus payout......
