rykerf150 asked:

Ok thanks for the information. So do u have one urself? Have u had any problems? And do u think I should go with the sti limited?

Don’t worry about it rykerf150, it’s all good. Unfortunately, I do not have my own STi. I only have an Impreza wagon but it is rock solid -knock on wood- and gets this university student too and from point A to point B. From what I have heard my fellow Subaru enthusiasts at my local Impreza Club as well as NASIOC is the chances of the following problems:

  1. Head/Value Gasket Seal leaks and deterioration (had that problem on my wagon.. was not fun to deal with…)
  2. Clutch rattling
  3. Steering rattle and OEM rack bushings need replacement rather frequently    
  4. Fuel gauge not being very accurate 
  5. Short shifter upgrade from stock (Depending on which model/year you are planning to get)
  6. clunky rear struts on some ‘05 STi’s and many '04’s
  7. Random plastic noises (use a bit of deadening material and usually the problem is gone)

A good reference tool can be found here: Common STi Problems

With all that has been said here, don’t be discouraged and like always, YMMV (Your MIleage May Vary). The best option, especially if you are buying used, is to get it inspected along with a leak compression test done by a reputable shop - preferably one that deals with Subaru’s on a regular basis - a bit spoiled with a couple recommended spots at my disposable in my city.  

As for getting the STi Limited, it’s all about your budget and needs. From an aesthetics point of view, I love the Limited’s 9 split-spoke BBS Wheels. Performance-wise they are practically the same. The standard fog-lamps are great if you like midnight adventures or if you live in an area that uses them on a regular basis. 

Hope this helps out your decision and as always, happy cruising

I was going to wait until I picked the car up and had pictures of my own to show, but I’m too pumped and had to make a thread. Approximate landing date is August 2nd.
