Been waiting one year for this car. Just took delivery this afternoon. Absolutely amazing car. Getting detailed now, I’ll post more pics tonight.

Pretty cool car to add to the stable. I read the R&T comments and seems like a fun car on the track and that Intercooler sprayer is pretty trick. Enjoy.

“Our laps at VIR were by no means perfect. Activating the intercooler sprayer requires the driver to pull on what would be an automatic's shift paddles, and we forgot to activate it on almost every hot lap (every pull of a paddle for 0.6 second gets you about two seconds of water spraying), so its theoretical benefit of about five horsepower was forgotten on the straight.”

A few more pics. I didn’t let the selling dealer wash it or detail it in any way. So it had all the tape glue, rail road dust, etc on it. Filthy, but the finish unharmed by typical dealership hands. Detailer spent 6 hours on the car last night.

Good move on not letting the dealer scratch the heck out of it on their inbound detail.

Had this on a 2003 EVO.  Didn't help much.  Best use in on the low speed rally courses where the intercooler is getting poor airflow and is a big lump of metal sitting in another hot box of really hot metal.

 

So cool car, but don't expect much from the intercooler spray.

I have to say that I feel very fortunate to own a car like this. I put it on a very high level in my collection. There are cars that are called special editions that are simply marketing exercises (something BMW has mastered, and Porsche is getting very good at), but some cars, truly do convey a sense of “specialness”.

 

Being that this is a long term keeper which I also intend to drive I had the whole car wrapped in clear bra. Took five days between the initial detail and dismantling, 3 days of pure custom film application, and one day of re-assembly. Wing came off, door handles, mirrors, inner door panels to take the outer pieces off, emblems, etc... There’s some areas that make the film show a bit more than usual due to the wild angles. Having said that it came out clean and I’m very happy with it. 

 

Car is probably one of the top handling cars I’ve ever driven. The driver train is very old school, and wonderful for it. Mechanical front and rear LSDs, electronically controlled yet very mechanical center diff, truck like transmission, etc... The only thing that blew my mind is that STi installed a fucking delay or reducer of some sort in the clutch line or clutch cylinder (based on my research it’s the line). I ordered a CUSCO SS clutch line that eliminates the reducers and removes any play from the flex of the clutch line as a bonus. I’d say this mod is not recommended, but a necessity in order to drive the damn car properly, and not wear the clutch out for no reason. I can’t wait to have it installed because the damn clutch and transmission on the STi has always been one of my favorite parts.

 

The interior is surprisingly nice and well finished. Feels a lot higher quality than Subaru’s of days yonder. Only change I made was install the Subaru OEM Kicker speaker replacements. They’re better OEM replacements. The S209 comes with the base sound system which is pretty sad, that’s coming from a guy who doesn’t care about automotive audio quality. It helped. But it’s not Burmester. 

 

The thing that needs to be taken a way is the car is truly hand built. Every bolt is marked by the STi technician as it’s torqued. During the film installation I was surprised how many of the body panels were also done by STi.

 

A few pics during the process:

I also got this in the mail tonight. Really cool, and I very much appreciate the thought.
