I think he's talking about the stretch/camber. It scares lots of people, lol.

lol i guess - only seems to worry people who don't know about it. As with anything it's completely fine within moderation!

I think it looks great. I too drive a car on air. Two of them in fact. Both are moderate with camber around -3 and 235/40/18 on 10.5. I drive this way daily and combined between the two cars have over 140K miles on this type of setup. People who don't know just don't know. The car can still be tracked, daily driven and good for show. Again, car is looking great and I appreciate the attention to detail you've put into it.

Go for it! It's fun, fast, practical, economical, and hopefully in the long run, reliable haha

With the FA20DIT motor, gas mileage is pretty decent. I average about 24 MPGS with my all local (city) commute but the best I have gotten on road trips is around 33. People who mod complain about rev hang and notchy shifter but it's something you get used to if you adjust your driving skill, and it's really not that bad. I heard good things about the CVT but I would still recommend getting the 6 Speed Manual to get the most out of it. Suspension is sporty but is not as stiff as it would be in the STI.

If you just want a fun daily driver that can handle everyday life that can do the occasional spirited drive/canyon carve, I would say this is it, but you have to look at it as a Corolla/Civic/Elantra/​Sentra type car that has AWD and tons of HP and Torque.

I second this. I've had my 2015 WRX CVT for just over 2 years now and still love it. The 6 speed is more fun to drive, but the CVT is no slouch. I get about 24 mpg in the city and 28-29 on the highway, which is better than the Mazda 6s I traded in for it, and the WRX really cooks in comparison.

It's definitely a louder car though, both inside and out. The road noise is more apparent, and the exhaust resonates pretty loudly, so it's not a subtle car by any means. That all fades away when you carve through turns like the car is on rails.

Overall, the only gripe I have with the car is the audio system. I got the Premium (mid-level), and I regret not going for the Harmon Kardon upgrade. I did the Subaru 6 Speaker Kicker Upgrade and it improved it decently, but it's still not as good as any of the systems in our Toyota's, Honda's or Hyundai's.

I installed the Kicker tweeters, but haven't replaced the door speakers yet. Did the door speaker upgrade make a big difference? I heard the stock head unit doesn't really have enough wattage to drive them.

It doesn't take anything to drive my car as it is on air suspension and i simply push a button and can achieve and ride height i want. Not to mention it's nearly 500whp i moves faster than most cars and does a damn good job at it!

Yea but how does it do off road.. :p
As you can see I am into totally practical rides only. My favorite thing is drive up windows, and pulling in behind cops at lights.
They get more of a kick out of it than I do.

They make a difference, but compared to the other stock sound systems we have in our other basic cars ('94 Toyota Camry LE, '13 Honda Accord LX, '08 Hyundai Elantra GLS), they still don't even come close.

I'm especially surprised by our '94 Camry's audio system at how decent it is (had it since new since 1994) compared to these Kicker Upgrades, which are a a few points better in my opinion.

We also have a '97 Toyota Corolla DX, the bass blew, but I would say these Kicker Upgrade have around the same quality of sound as the Corolla's before they blew.

I was thinking about adding in the Alpine Power Pack amp system to boost the power a bit, but overall, I just got used to the Kicker's after a while so for me it's not worth putting into it more.

If they do come out with a new STI without the EJ257 motor anymore, and hopefully an FA motor of some sort, I'll just trade this in and go for that with the Harmon Kardon :-D:-D:-D

Those silly eyeballs completely negate any seriousness that engine once had. Nice 'Vette, otherwise. Do you have a different angle of it?

Honestly don't see what the fuss is. The stretch is really not bad at all compare to some I've seen and you can't really go slamming through potholes or train tracks in anything with a 35 section sidewall. It's bagged and not static so I doubt he's cracking oil pans either. Probably has more clearance than my BRZ when he's at full lift.

Finally my new ride is about to be on the way from the West.

Nothing too crazy, just a 2012 White on Black, 6spd, Special Edition Acura TSX. Already has tint and window visors.

Sold my 04 Acura TSX about a month ago and have been on the hunt for a 6speed(for really way before I sold mine though) since.

Pictures too come

Bodies - Canon 5dm2 w/ grip
Lenses - Canon 17-40L, 28-135mm, 35-80mm, Niffy 50

I mean as far as for the working photographer, not to shoot...

What you can't see in the photo - muddy bootprints all over the roof and trunk lid . . . sometimes a higher POV yields a better composition.

It's all about getting the image - nothing else matters!
