Dude, sucks to see you go (cobalt wise). Swing around from time to time, we can always open your threads if needed. Good pick up although I'm not one for the STI! Enjoy!
thanks, I guess...lol. Love this car in every way compared to the cobalt. I want to say I missed the balt, but I don't ever find myself thinking about it as I thought I might. I haven't been on here in months, I hang around more on Cobalt Universe, but knew that there were some ppl here that knew me in the earlier days of YC that might be interested.
Not to say the cobalt wasn't a good car, it did me well for the 3.5+ years I had it, but in the end, especially with my transmission issues (which should NOT have happend, thanks GM engineering for cutting design of certain parts short) it was time to say goodbye.

Not a bad upgrade. I hope you don't ever plan on doing much engine work to that, they are a PITA for some fyi! Looks like you and I might see each other at the Subie/Evo shootout if we ever go at the same time
yep, I KNEW you would say this, seeing that you have an EVO and was reading another one of your threads randomly thinking about that fact. Thing is, these are GREAT for power. People (even owners) misconceive the newer subaru engines because of the handful of ringland failures that SOME people b*tched about. Plus, with a simple piston upgrade, these things can see quite a ton of power. If you read into some of these failures, you`ll see that a good amount were using wrong brand or weight oils, abusing the engines, etc.
FYI, nothing against you, but the local EVO owners in GENERAL seem like douches (don't know why) and my other friend confirmed this...he waves at other nice sports cars, but EVO owners give him dirty looks if he tries to acknowledge them in his 2012 STI.
I also looked at getting a newer EVO (2011+), found one or two, but in all honesty, just didn`t love it. I`m sure it drives great, and is pretty decent for power upgrades, but in terms of interio and exterior looks, the STI took it for me. Either choice is fine IMO, most people can`t afford newer cars like this, so I feel truly lucky to have the means to own one.
