Its not an 04 sti I think you mean.
Don't like them personally. They just look old and ugly if you ask me. Trading in for a Celica I would have got something with a bigger engine. I think the logical step from a Celica is a 330 BMW. Would leave an STi standing from 100mph. Also, Imprezas are just way way too common now.
Another thing I don't like about them is the interior. It just looks really cheap, really basic, and really plasticy. Reminds me a bit of the pre 2003 Celica interior.
And white?? What the hell posessed you to buy a white one?
well im sorry that it didn't meet your expectation.
Just to clarify your understanding...
-STI's have very strong 1,2,3rd gears. However 4,5,6th gears are not as strong. That doesn't not mean 4,5,6th gears are slow, they are actually really fast, but just not as fast as 1,2,3rd. I've raced my friends
350z(same one from the picture with Intake
, fullstraightpiping exhaust), 350z are known for their top-end hp for high speed. However i was actually able to pull on him going about 80-135mph. I really don't think 330 ci can beat sti after going 100mph. Because i also raced a new 745 or 750 series(correct me if im wrong) with having 4 people in my car. And beat him @ going 130mph. So bigger displacement doesn't necesery means its faster. Plus who cares about high speed, when you can dust them in 1/4 mile...
-impreza are common now days, however not as common as your 330ci bmw(these are most common bmw in the street) wrx and sti are totally different thing. I see maybe one or two STI in each town. But i see 5-6 EVOs in each town. I remember when i had my celica, i would get reved on, but now i get props from all the racers.
-04 interior are totally different from 05 interior. In 05 all the dash trims are soft leather, plus much better options such as 6 disk in dash changer, much more detail than 04 STI's. Every detail of the the interior is very high quality. Everybody said that 05 STI has very good interior.
-White... I had my reasons...
first of all everybody has blue sti or wrx. It is the best selling color for sti and wrx. There for i wanted to be different.
2nd, White is very easy color to take care of, and very clean.
3rd, On 05 STI's, whites were limited edition, where they only made 100 of them in US
4th, I was deciding on either black or white, but black was just too high maintanence. Even the black sti owner told me so.
Last, white is just rare, you don't see them often in the street, so far i seen one white STI other than mine.
thanks for the reply
