1st STI and New to EPAWD

Post by STIckyFingers on Tue Jan 29, 2013 12:54 pm

Hello, my name is Josh. I recently purchased my 1st STI and I love it so far. I am interested in seeing what knowledge you guys have to offer and maybe trying to make it to a couple of the meets. I am also looking to do basic mods now seeing as how I am still under warranty and would like to keep it that way. Anyways....Nice to meet ya!!!![img][/img]

Nice ride man! I've been eyeing that car since it came in. It's just a little over my price tag. Like 10k over, so i got a 2013 wrx (voided warranty). Welcome!

Hola-Welcome! Great looking STi. Did it come equipped with any factory installed SPT parts?

Thanks. I got it with the SPT short shift and exhaust that's it. I was gonna get the boost gauge but I decided to hold off and just grab a DEFI later on.

Good stuff. I was curious how long it would be there. I'd always see it when I went tocheck on my RS.

Yeah STI's have always been my dream car and I never could afford it. Luckily, I got a large amount for my trade and was able to haggle a considerable chunk off the price.

Well the day I drove this one off the lot they already had an exact copy parked by the road. That one is still there I think. If I had it to do all over again this one would still be on the lot and I would have gone to Albuquerque to buy it. Horrible experience.

The salesman was a great help and very kind and almost as excited as I was. It was the finance "managers", how ever many work there, that were the pains in the back side. Very unprofessional and was just looking the $ to land in their palms. There's plenty more but I'm trying to keep this short Very Happy

Hey I see you have the Cobb AP. I think that's gonna be one of my first moves. How do you like it? Also how easy is the flash back to stock because I really wanna try and keep my warranty valid?

Is it true that dealerships can see if it's been used?
