It's a beautiful Saturday in June, around 10:00am w/o a cloud in the sky. The dealer has just finished talking you through the subtleties of your shiny, new STi (Black w/gunmetal BBS for me please) and hands you the keys. Where do you go? For how long? Who are you with?

gunmetal BBSs would be nice...I wouldn't count on em coming from the dealer that way though.

I'll be driving home....seeing as the dealer I'm getting mine through will be several hours away.

I am hoping I can go right to the place to get my Stonegard installed. Then it will be for window tint and a stereo. Anywhere at first just to break it in. Since I can't really get on it yet it won't really matter where.

Hey FasStAsS_sTi.

I have been on Road America many times! It is definately one of the best tracks in North America. Maybe not too well suited for the STI with all of the super long straights (great for high horsepower cars) but it will be fun through the turns. I will be planning on doing some driving schools with the BMW club as soon as my STI comes in.

I am driving the car directly to my stereo show down the street to get the best alarm they have installed and, if Subaru wants too much to install a stereo similar to the one the current WRX, I will be getting them to throw in stereo and speakers to. I don't really care that much about a stereo, so the stock 6-disc the same as in my WRX is fine - I would rather listen to the car, but you need tunes for long commutes.

i'll be making the rounds visiting all the friends in the MD/DC/No. VA area who've listened to me drone on and on for the past 5+ years about this supercar made by subaru and what an "injustice" it was that we couldn't get the car in the states. :) then i'll take it home, put in the two car seats in the back and take the wife and kids for a quick spin. :) stereo and alarm the next day.

My very very first drive I will be driving it home...so I can take pictures of it :) I'll have to remember to bring my camera to the dealership since I forgot it when I bought my WRX.

After the break-in period, I'll probably call up my friends from our LA Crest mountain drive last week and do that run again...have them give me that map so that I can lead :wink:

Where do you live in Colorado then? Woodland park is a nice area. What dealer are you going with Heuberger? They were always expensive IMO. 24 has some nice turns towards Woodland Park.


For my first drive it will either be from the port (Bremerhaven) about 6 hours of where I live or directly to my house depending on where I get it delivered. Either way I'm not gonna sweat the break in, just let the miles come. I will probably be driving it to work the entire rest of the week, plus church on Sunday which is about an hour 15 mins, so my break in won't last at all. :D

Ortega HWY and Santiago Canyon road. Taking it real easy. Kind of introducing the STI to what she'll be doing for years to come.

To my best friend's house to rev my beast right outside his bedroom window, call him a sucka when he comes outside, then ask him very politely to install my $3-5k worth of stereo equipment for free!
*singing* That's what friends are for! *singing*
