1.) The damn pedals are too close for winter driving with boots on :) Summer time I drive without shoes, so no matter (yes, I know it's illegal)

2.) Larger cup holder for the center console.

Yep, that's it. I love this car :)

I drove down to FL (naples) in the seats and didn't have any troules. My old Integra gave me a hell of a back ache after 4 hours of driving to PA though. I did notice that the seats held my butt form for about 30 minutes after I got out of the car though, haha.

The only thing I'd change is the size of the monthly payment :lol:

other than that the car is perfect :wink:

Defiance

I'd make the auto-dimming mirror dim faster, and have a setting to keep it at full dim.

Pass through on the back seat.

Better location for factory boost gauge, and red blacklighting for it instead of white.

i'd snug up the seats for sure. like the recaros in the evo. i don't mind the boost gauge being white, it makes it easier to see against the red of the other gauges. don't look at it that much, so it doesn't really matter. i think if the center cup holder were any larger, i'd be likely to put too big of a cup in there, and spill all over everything while shifting!

trunk popper on the remote
express up for driver's window and the ability to open/close windows after you shut off the engine and before a door is opened
interior light that doesn't dim within 2 seconds of closing the door
lighted buttons for the electric window
sunroof option
snugger bolsters in the seat and less lower lumbar support

otherwise it is perfect. :D

I would want a larger cup holder in the center console and a shorter shifter. The current shifter is bit on the long side, however the whole transmission is rock solid.

I would change:

- JDM STi seats
- A nicer, metallic-with-black-nubs dead pedal, not a flimsy plastic thing
- HVAC lighting should come red to match the STi panel

Agreed, but I will add the height of the rear spoiler. I don't care how high or low - so long as it is out of my line of sight!

I wonder if there aren't any WRX owners who would be willing to trade out their rear seat however?

how is this thread different than this one??

snax, you sti is drooling. ;)
This thread is about what you'd change in the car.

That thread is about any regrets you might have about buying one.

Two different things.

Re: mixed meet in the chicago area

I would change a number of things....#1 is kinda real wishfull thinking:

1. DCCD that allowed 100% to rear for more tail swingin' fun
2. Maintain the MOMO steering wheel in the STi
3. 1,000 more RPM for significantly faster 0-60 times (just for
bragging rights)
4. Factory HID's for brights as well
5. Factory Fog Lights....c'mon, this is a ralley car for cryin' out loud
6. Pure black interior
7. Wheels with less nooks and crannies for break dust to settle in.

OK, so I think that's it....the red gauges stuff....Man, that is so easy to do, so I didn't mention it...that was the first thing I did...

i'll take a little bit of everybody's for sure:
1. steering wheel with more leather, less plastic
2. optional black interior with pass thru and jdm seats
3. hvac lighting matches
4. larger cupholder. (although i find myself supersizing less and buying bottled water more)
5. factory option of roof scoop & vent (i'll take that over sunroof)
6. cleared jdm headlights
7. fmic
8. more sti goodies. pinks, strut mounts, trannie mounts, etc.
9. armrest extension standard
10. paint that doesn't suck

if I could change anything it would be less touchy abs brakes. they kick in way to early imo, I would def love to have a pass through in the trunk for my skis in the winter.. I also think that we should have gotten the rally inverted hood scoop in front of our large one. even though it would be pointless it sure would liik nice. hehe
