    Easily the best car that can still be reasonably practical. Yeah, the DCCD is really cool. I have only started using it since we have had snow. Move the dial down a little bit and you will be able to take slippery corners a bit faster. The extra rear bias will throw your ass out a little bit if you give it some throttle about halfway through the turn. Dont go too low though, or itll be harder to straighten out. Just play with it and see what works

    I am patiently waiting for engine management...they said UTEC in time for christmas, but I have my doubts

    Utec eh? i think when mine rolls in ill be Switching over to Excede (Sp) even though its just piggy back all your really leaving alone is the Throttle sensor, everything else is tunable beside its showing some nice numbers with just an exhaust upgrade, some were around 280-290 WHP with just piggy back, and it get rid of that annoying ping problem all the STi guys have been Dreading, any of you guys get your ECU's Flashed yet?well i havent heard much about Utec is it even out yet?

    I havent heard of any pinging STIs in canada yet, even with our crappy gas.

    No, UTEC isnt out yet, which is why I said Im patiently waiting for it and they said in time for christmas but I have my doubts

    I though we had better gas in Canada? I have driven to LA and back probably 15 times in the last 10 years and my milelage always got shitter the further south I went.

    Some states even have 85 octane... Got a bad tank of gas in Utah and that nearly f'd up my oxygen sensors.

    I know that in California, in the winter, they put alcohol in the fuel so that the cars run hotter so there isn't as much smog. You gas milage suffers though... They call in "winter gas".

    Some guy in Winnepeg has an STi for sale... 9300km for $43,000

    I am so tempted right now...

    Well, in all states besides california, its not hard to find stations that carry 94 octane. Here, its very hard. Thats all I mean by crappy gas. They might have some worse, but its not hard to find good gas too

    WTF? 43,000? Why the hell so cheap?!

    What color?

    trying to find out the color... sent the guy a pm. For that price, I will fly out and pick it up... have some fun on the way back... I went to school in Regina for about 6 months... so I know where you can push it a bit... haha

    If it is Silver or White... I think I will buy it!

    That's because yours is fake .

    DCCD is really cool. I've got telemetry of an STi at race city while testing different DCCD settings, as well as different shift points. I rode a bunch of laps in the car, and u can really dial the understeer completely out of the car.

    The STi can clock 1:29's on the roadcourse... bone stock on factory tires . Definately awesome bang for the buck.

    Well, rumor has it the car is the color you are after, aspen white, and has the HIDs you were waiting for...philips too. And a great price. Judging by all your posts on the topic, I dont see you passing this one up, so contact him ASAP. This is an awesome deal

    Enjoy your car!

    Haha... yeah I checked NASIOC and I noticed it was white.

    In the back of my mind, my mom is still telling me to buy a house first...

    I sent the guy a PM and am just waiting for a response... although I just got another offer with less kms and less money... go figure. Different color though.

    Buyers market I guess.

    Problem is that I have to sell my car too... which means if I get a great deal on an STi... not going to get that good of a deal on my car...

    Anybody want an Accord V6 for $21,000?
