Here's the hi-res...http://photo.head-fi.org/data/500/IMG_1040.JPG
Very sweet ride Thaddy! I guess now you're just waiting for an EVO to pull up next to at a stoplight huh?

I like the fact that you removed that nasty spoiler they come with (or can you option them without it?)

Well, once I'm past 1,500 miles...but even then, I'd rather be sportin' the STi badge on the back I think the Evo would be a bit too much to handle, but I'd certainly give him a thumbs up.

Matt34, how many pounds of boost does your stock turbo put out? I was just driving next to an SRT-4 tonight and could hear what sounded like an aftermarket blow-off valve, and I was curious how potent that engine really is. For a turbocharged 4 cylinder, it souned quite angry

Well, after a long day, one of my vehicles looks a little different...



It's going to be a loooooooooooooong winter!!!

LOL Well given I haven't listed ALL the vehicles I've owned since I was 16, I can't fault you here. Actually I owned a '96 Miata from '96 to '99. It was a very forgiving car to drive. But to be honest I still find the S2K a step up from the Miata. But for 95% of folks out there, the Miata probably would be their sane choice.

As for bikes, I owned a good number of British twins over the years with my last two being a '70 Dunstall Norton 750 (only one of two imported) and a '72 Norton 850 with a California Sidecar rig. Loved them both

I honestly can't remember, I wanna say stock it peeks at 17-18 and drops to 12. Haven't driven it in 6 months.
A lot of "kids" get the Mopar BOV otherwise known as the "rice plate", very noisy BOV. I have a Boomba BOV and it's very tame which I was looking for. The stock turbo is good for 310-320hp and the motor can handle 450-480hp on the stock internals. Right now mine is pretty much stock, performance wise, except for a AEM CAI(230hp, 250tq).
I'm planning on upgrading to Mopar's stage 3 turbo upgrade which will put me around 350hp with a bigger FMIC, Water injection, downpipe and 3" exhaust.

VR6ofpain,

They all come from the factory with them, I took it off as I am not a fan of wings on any car. I have color matched plugs filling the holes for now until I fill and paint them.

Very nice, it's a classy move taking off the spoiler.

The Subaru dealership told me that the stock block is good for about 450 horsepower, but there's no need for that. I'd consider getting an intake from SPT and maybe an exaust, if it didn't sound annoyingly loud. The flat 4 has a nice deep sound to it though, so it probably won't. First on my list is a short-throw shifter and a nice milled aluminum shift knob. I can get it all through the dealership with 20% off, so it's still covered by the warranty

I'm gald subaru went with the 2.5L block for all the WRX's this year. Those flat 4's do sound wicked(in a good way) with an exhaust from what I hear. Get a full TBE and Cobb s2 upgrade and you'll be just as fast as the STI's for a lot less.

I got the mopar STS and a weighted shift knob from Spacaro.....so nice!

Don't believe it til you move a bit to your right.

750i is roughly 72k.
760i is roughly 112k. That's 40k difference.

Either car is nice and def worthy of a thumbs up from me. However, I remain skeptical as I've seen all of 3 760s around town. The rest were all 740s. Yes, I do check the rear of the car.

The Sub flat fours sound ridiculously mean (In a good way) when routed through a nice exhaust. The throaty growl the flat four produces has to be one of the nicest exhaust tones I've ever heard, very distinctive too. I've heard WRXs or STis equipped with the HKS Carbon-Ti, Perrin catback, and 5Zigen fireball, and they all sound amazing. The BOV can be a bit rambunctious on the STi though, a little too ricer-esque for me, I'm not a big fan of the "psshhh". If you're looking for some good bolt on mods, the AVO Stage 1 is a pretty good bargain and will keep your car running reliably, though of course voiding your warranty. It'll put you up to around 240hp at the wheels. One of the local guys here is running this set-up, and I must say, it can keep pace with the STi. Of course there's always the XS engineering XS21-0720, good for 500hp at the flywheel...

I heard the SRT-4 is an amazingly fast car (13.9 sec 1320 right?), with an equally throaty exhaust, and makes huge benefits from Mopar's upgrades and basic bolt-ons. However, I also read that the older models had an insatiable appetite for burning rubber when not equipped with an LSD (Though I think Dodge installed a Quaife on the newer ones?). I've only seen a couple locally, but they do look pretty fast. Shame Dodge didn't try to make the SRT-4 look more appealing than the standard Neon though, better sleeper I guess.

Sadly my Odyssey will have to do, 'till I finish high school .

His last car was an EVO VIII, whether the 760 is his or not I have no idea but I don't think money is a problem .

I don't mind what he did to the 7 series, though the previous gen was much classier with it's crisp angles and sharp lines, but I think Chris Bangle should be shot for what he did to the 3 series. Stop Chris Bangle petition FTW.
