Default New STI for Wifey!

Isn't she beautiful? We picked it up on Saturday after waiting a few months for the special order process.

It's not quite as much fun as my Z, but it's significantly more useful. She traded down (or up?) from an Infinity SUV, which was a little bit boring.

The short throw shifter is a must-have option if you're in the market for one.

Oh yes, the short throw shifter should be standard on these things. I remember test driving a WRX without one...it was ridiculous.
