Default New to Perth and stepping back into an STi (Now with pics)

Hi Everyone,

Just thought I'd chime in and introduce myself, my name's Shane and I've recently moved here from the east.

I've been without a rex for the past couple of years, the last one I had was a MY05 STi, however last week I purchased a low km MY12 Spec R Sedan. I've previously owned quite a few rex's and I'm looking forward to years of enjoyment with my latest purchase.

I'll post some pics of some of my past cars when I get around to it..

Cheers, Shane

Apologies for the delay, here's a few old busses I've owned over the years...


The one that started it all, MY99 WRX. (Unfortunately I can't find any pics of it at the moment..)

Well and truly in my rice phase with my CSE5. I'm glad that fad went by quickly, although I still think I succeeded in making a bug look good.







The one that got away... The best STi I have ever owned (Apart from the track car) purchased from over here in the West in 2006 with a mere 37,000km on the odo and sold in 2010 with 52,000km, yes I still kick myself everyday - I should never had sold it! The last pic is of Dean Herridge giving it a strap in Dutton Rally where he teamed up with the previous owner.









Grocery getter MY04 WRX Wagola, ended up dropping a MY02 STi long motor in it after doing a big end at the drags one night.



Once the Version 5 departed I purchased this gem of an MY05 STi with really low k's (32,000) and an MRT XB kit installed. This one only last 6 or so months, I got bored with it pretty quick after having the Version 5. It's actually for sale again currently on carsales.





The all mighty track hack! MY99 Version 5 STi Type R V Limited with full JDM MY03 STi V Limited running gear incl dash, twin scroll in this thing was awesome!!







And now my current MY12 STi Spec R, nothing crazy with this one, I guess I've matured over the years. Currently it only has a 3 inch TBE and tuned by Maximum Motorsport, All I've done is add a genuine lip and swapped the bootlid for a WRX one, I like the understated look these days... (Will get better photo's soon)

As nice as G3's are...the 2 door v5's take a lot of beating. A great collection.

Awesome. I'd give both my testicles and a kidney to the black market for a 2 door GC8
