2007 FSTI and X 6 MT
So the dealer just go this beast in. Presold order. So badass looking.
It is very much not a WRX with STI engine and trans. The suspension is adopted from the JDM WRX STI spec C, so you take a normal STI and add the following:Yeah, its essentially a WRX with STi engine and trans. No HIDs or any of the other nice creature comforts. A budget STi, if you will. Me wants.
From what I saw, no change. Red stitch 09+ type.Any changes to the seats? The 08+ seats suck support-wise IMHO. Bring over the Recaros!!
I stand corrected.It is very much not a WRX with STI engine and trans. The suspension is adopted from the JDM WRX STI spec C, so you take a normal STI and add the following:
-1 millimeter thicker rear stabilizer bar
-Stiffer rear subframe bushings
-Upgraded rear springs
-16 percent stiffer front springs
-29 percent stiffer rear shocks
-JDM Spec C wheels
and to cut costs you don't get HID's, auto climate control, 6-disc CD player, and turn signals in the mirrors. But you get the crapload of other STI stuff that sets it apart from the normal WRX.
This is a good thing, it shouldn't be a limited run, it's what the STI should have been instead of the softie upmarket thing they turned it into.
If you're talking new, this IS the cheap STI. It's $2k cheaper than a normal STI. Which is a very cool thingDepending on how much they mark this thing up, it could be not all that. You could probably get a cheap STi, get some suspension and wheels and be just as track-ready. But it's still a very cool factory car. I really like the stance.
