it's not bad but I would def get an exhaust . I had a exhaust installed as soon as I left the dealer. Look up the borla system. I spent a good hour or so going back and fourth . The sti sounds like no other . You will love just a catback exhaust on this thing , especially the borla system.

That video gave me the sads Those are the roads that my wife and myself grew up driving. Borla is located probably 5 minutes from where I used to live.
But on the other note, that exhaust sounds amazing.

Nice '18 STi. What are your plans for her?

I ordered my '15 WRX Limited in May 2014 and it was delivered July 2014. I traded it in back in November of this past year. I guess I was lucky and got the 1st year model problem child... She had tons of issues. :/

don't know yet. Thinking cobb intake, downpipe, front mount intercooler kit . What was wrong with your wrx. I had a 2017 limited, she ran good but I also only put 5200 miles till I traded it in.

You have the rest of the afternoon to read the list of issues? lol just kidding it's not that long.

As mentioned before I had it ordered and picked it up with 7 miles back in July 2014. I traded it in with 51k miles. She was stock besides an axleback (muffled version). No AccessPort, J-Pipe, springs, coilovers, ect.

P0016 Camshaft Crankshaft Position Sensor <- Basically got that CEL around every 12k miles.

I documented the mileage it occurred but have since deleted it since I traded it in... I do remember that in May 2016 - P0016 CEL @ 26k miles I received the CEL. Then in February 2017 - P0016 CEL @ 38k miles. I believe the first one before the May 2016 was around 12-14k miles. It's weird it's about every 12k miles. I won't go into all the details but it got old quick.

Besides the big job mentioned above I had the throw-out bearing replaced multiple times for squealing/squeaking noises while the clutch was released. They re-designed the TOB per sources.

Rough/Hard startup in about 18 months of ownership. Dealership replaced the battery under warranty due to CCA's being low on the stock battery.

I'm sure I'm missing some things..

This might be the first time I ever thought a subaru was a nice looking car! How about some rear 3/4 shots? I am guessing I would prefer it without the wing, but man they have come a long way.
