So yeah, i did take the plunge into the oceans of lunacy and bought a 2006 STI. I know am gonna get shit for chosing the Silver grey color and white wheels but overall it looks quite awesome in person. Plus, it doesnt stand out as boy racery in this color so it shouldnt stand out in front of every single cop on the road.

Sorry about the lack of pictures right now but i will rectify it as soon as i get home. biggrin.gif




Sorry about the crappy cellphone pics. I promise to get some half decent pictures real soon.
leif
Good choice...If they weren't so expensive here in canada I might consider picking one of those up!

Cant wait for pictures.
A32
That is awesome. I can't wait to see the pics.

Congratulations.

McKhaos

Spike23

z0ne

dukenukem

I love my parents biggrin.gif

CGM isn't my favourite colour for the STI, but, awesome anyway! Just wait for 1,001mi to roll around and all hell will break loose! Congrats on the purchase, Mihir!

Awesome car! Duke, your next job is to go get the Cobb Tuning stage 1 kit. It's just an ECU chip that gives you a quality 20hp gain. It's worth it though, but you will start having to run 94 octane. You'd alsomight want to consider a turboback exhaust from Tanabe, owh my the sound is produces drool3.gif

I have a friend who has an 02 WRX with a Cobb Stage 1 and 2, Tanabe turboback exhaust 1" lowered wit the STi hood scoop, my god is it ever fast and sexy.

The only decent thing Tanabe makes is springs. Boo to their exhaust kits.
Mazdaspeed
all wrx exhausts sounds similiar anyways... sexy as hell

You're terrible at chosing colors. That is all.
PAULIE_D
Awesome. Congrats! But if I were you, I'd ditch the roof spoiler.

P.S. It makes me jealous to see how affordable these cars are in the U.S.

My friend bought a 2004 STi brand new and it ended up costing him $53,000 Canadian including freight & taxes and interest on his loan payments.

Cobb ECU flash.

SS kit.
Lowering springs.

he doesnt need the FMIC the STi TMIC is good for atleast 350hp.
z0ne
It looks better and gets better airflow. Plus, if he's got the money, why not?

Anyone think a $350 short throw shifter is a good investment ? that includes installation.

Duke: I've been told the SPT SS isn't bad, but that the KART-BOY one is 50x better. They are super easy to install, even a brown man can do it.

Now its duke's car!

(yes I'm Jealous!)
z0ne
...what?

It's a tissue box, z0ne.

Like I said on IRC, of all the images of tissue boxes that Google Images comes up with, leif chooses the one that best resembles an acid-induced MS Paint project ... tard.gif

It will take .. 35-50min tops if you aren't a retard.

OMG! CONGRATS!!!

GREAT Choice of colour IMO biggrin.gif Silver is really the best.
z0ne
CGM != PSM. Or for those not in the Subaru community: Crystal Grey Metallic(duke's colour) does not equal Platinum Silver Metallic.

CGM is darker.

Edit:

PSM, left. CGM, right.

Re: Leif's tissue box photoshop

C'mon now... most hardcore Indian-types have to encase their tissue boxes in an ornate gold coloured box. And don't forget the matching crown air freshener for the dashboard.

C'mon now..

I don't want to diss Duke but blue exterior with gold wheels is the only choice in my opinion.
clarkma5
White with Gold is far and away my favorite STi color combo, especially on the '06s.
z0ne
As much as I'm not ususally a fan of white cars, Aspen White on bronze looks amazing on the 2006 STI's.
moe
Blue with gold to a Subaru what red is to a Ferrari...it just HAS to be done...that said I still think Duke's color is great...then again my car is about the same color...
Mr b00st
took me about an hour to install my short shift kit.

the only hard part is lining up the splines on the selector shaft. It can be a bitch.

I'm going to visit and demand a ride.

Goddamn f*cking greedy-arse Canadian manufacturers... if it was priced appropriately, I'd be able to buy one up here!

That's my way of saying congratulations, I'm jealous! drool3.gif

And you'll get no knocking of your choice in colour from me. I like the colour for the same reason as you... less detection from the po-po. Speaking of which, are you going to keep the rear spoiler (s) or go for a stealthier look?

Saturday - you learn how to heel-toe and get some decent pictures.

20-30% tint should do the trick, Mihir. You don't want to look like some rapper in an Escalade.
