    Hello All,

    I just joined the forum after buying an 09 Black STI on Saturday. I love the car, but I'm still coming to grips with the fact that I traded my old car for it.

    I traded my 2007 C6 Corvette:


    It was a big change to this car, but I think it's going to be great.

    Congrats on the purchase. The consensus is that Steven King (Tech at SOK ) is the one you want working on your car.

    Others feel free to chime in, but you may want to consider taking it to Topspeed for an ECU reflash to let it run safer (Subaru won't do it as it may cange emissions). I think Doug at Topspeed said he would do it for a nominal cost and shouldn't affect your warranty.

    Congrats again.

    BelvnAWD I'm Vin, Bell-Vin...

    Can I ask why the change? I love the C6's!!! The Sti is a great ride though as well. Certainly close in performance with way more practicality!

    Hey Matt!

    Yup, that's me.

    Just to jog our memory:


    Did you ever get that rental garage? I haven't seen you posting on CC much any more.

    Long gone. A guy from CC and NASA bought it and now runs it in AI. I sold it to buy the Corvette.

    Thanks again everyone for the welcome. Thanks also to Matt for the kind words. I hope to be able to contribute in some small way.

    No, no pictures yet. I need to wait for some decent weather and some time to clean the grime off of it! Soon.........

    I'm right off of Wade Green about 1.5 miles east of I-75. Great meeting you guys today. Also nice to meet Jewels450 and mmtasty who just happened to ride by while the car was in the air. Interesting coincidence that Jewels lives in my neighborhood and we've never met.

    I looks like this group has a great bunch of people and I'd like to make some g2g's. Maybe we could do a mod or install day here. I have a bearing press coming soon, so I will be pretty self sufficient. Anytime I'm home, the garage is open if you need to do an install. All I ask is that the car isn't disabled overnight so that I can get mine back in.

    I'm going to sign up for the Dyno Day next weekend, so I'll be able to meet some of you there. Just look for the old fat guy!
