Guys if you can nego for the STI package with full body kit. Coz MI do not sell them alacarte. You will be better off buying from USA or japanparts website but the problem is shipping.. Big item so shipping cost is ex and not worth.

Too late for me... Car already here. How much you guys paid for that package?

Oh nice to see the new WRX/STI owner here.

i booked a CVT end of March, but the 2016 version booking was closed so I was booked a 2017.

The car has been here for five weeks but I can't collect it because it is still under going LTA homologation......

just scrapped my 2006 Legacy 2.0R yesterday, now carless.... 

I bought some accessories from subispeed when I was in USA two months ago, regret that I didn't get mudflap.

congrats bro, any difference between the 2017 and 2016 models?

I see from Internet, the different in 2017 model is very minor. I think there are some minor cosmetic different in the interior. The only functionality different I know off is auto one touch up/down for front passenger side windows.

unfortunately, even the changes are so minor, LTA still takes Long time for homologation. Wait till my neck long long.

Huh.. Mine 2015 model also one touch up and down for front passenger Window oredy..

You should look at the center multi function display hood.. Mine is plastic. I just changed to leather top with red stitch. Longer and nicer

haha ic.

ya I bought the center display hook you mentioned. Also bought the piece near the CVT gear knob. Hoping these will make the interior a little nicer. :-)

Actually interior wise it is quite good, compared to the previous versions.

What I think is the sound of the car needs to be a little racier. Lol but that's subjective.

oh there is one thing I would strongly recommend. The arm rest stock is quite Low. SubiSpeed has one that has extra storage. Can self install. That helps a lot!

Yup.. Get the armrest extension. There are 2 types. One is just extra storage. Another is can slide out to rest your arm. Surf amazon or japanparts website. They have it there.

Haha, you know what? I already bought that arm rest with extra storage. I also bought the subispeed convex side mirror. Had prova convex side mirror on my legacy and I love it.

Yeh, I think of everything I bought, the extra storage arm rest is the bestest! 

Bro Derek, actually u can try SubiSpeed. Their shipping cost via DHL is actually quite reasonable. The japanparts / Amazon shipping is a killer. 

 

Went mt to see the NASOC forum... The available exhausts there sounds amazing. Too bad no one bringing in. Hopefully the BMS BKS Fong Kim will bring some legal ones in soon.

Guys, for those riding the Wrx/sti 2015-2017 (there is a 2017???), just like to check your average FC? I am running about 11km/l, 40%hw/60%city.

That's very good FC... tempting me to buy one...

What's your transmission type? 6MT or Auto...?
