This is a great photo folder. There are some really good ones with the gauges and what not. I love the simulated night driving and the pink STi lights up..how cool.

I like the exterior temp guage reading too..very cool for those slick winter days and black ice!! :lol:

Is there any way to make a suggestion to Subaru? If they would just put another decimal place on the trip odometer, those of us who roadrally in the stock class would kill for this car. I am not very electronics smart but that kind of change seem like it would be child's play.

Like I said "supposed to be". The SOA guys at the event usually pointed out we were looking at a pre-production car (95%-99% of what we saw we would get).

not to mention you have to stare at the nice pink logo while you're driving, then when you look at the tach, oh yeah and while you're getting in guess what's on the seats!!!!! I'm just wondering when they're going to get the barbie edition sti,i can feel its coming soon lol

I would've liked the Escaine blue to be a brighter and richer blue. The one I saw was kinda faded. Blue stitching would've been nice too. The STi lettering on the seats and the carpets is fine to me, it's more red than pink...it's only that badge on the trunk lid that's a little too pink. As long as they don't give us a pink i badge in the front I'm OK. I was surprised that it still had the standard Subaru cluster badge, though...I would've liked to see a black i badge instead...oops now I'm talking about the Exterior my bad! :wink:

I don't care if anyone calls the car "gay." I hope people think my car is gay when I get it. Gay as hell when all they see is tail lights. Not too mention this is everything I want in a car..a dream car so to speak.

Gay..hrmp... :x

91TB78, i would love to have have your opinion on the car but the fact is stupid stuff (like the pink badges, oversized wing) can have a negative effect socially b/c people do judge on looks, and they put a lot of weight on that judgement. It's kinda like if you dress nice, people notice you more and hold a higher opinion of you than if you just sloppily throw your clothes together. fashion, unfortunately, does have a pretty big effect in this materialistic world.

chawklit,
I know what you mean. Honestly, for you (and for me down the road maybe) I would get your color choice and gunmetal BBS or toned down wheels of your choice, remove the badges (especially the pink :lol: ), and then either trade in the wing for a WRX standard one, or buy an aftermarket toned down one.

After that the car is "normal."

Well said 91TB78, I think it's awsome that SOA/STi has used the color pink to make this car stand out. IMO, SOA/STi used just enough pink to make the car "unique" not "gay". If there is no pink i badge when the STi is released that will be one of the first things I get, and I will make damn sure that when someone driving their sports car sees the pink i badge on the front of my STi, they will also get to see the pink i badge on the back of my STi, unless, of course, they truly are driving a supercar.

Did a turbo gauge ever come standard on any STi?
