Hello everyone,
I'm a new member here and just wanted to introduce myself. I recently traded in my 2005 Subaru STi :mad: for a blue IS-F. :D
I must be groing up (the IS-F was my 30th b-day :( present to myself) now that I've made the jump into the luxury sedan side of the auto industry.
The suby was lightly modded, pushing 391HP and 403TQ :cool: along with some minor suspension tweaking.
I come from a rally racing background hence why my last 4 cars have been Subarus. (all blue by the way)
Other than that, I'm looking forward to learning more about my F from all of you on this board. I'm very familiar with online forums and know how to search.
So my promise is this... I will always search before asking a question and please take it easy on me if my questions seem very basic to you. ;)
Later!

Welcome, we are glad to have ya! Please share any stories with us as you grow with your new "F". It is unfortunate, but I don't think the IS-F is going to handle the dirt tracks as well as your Subie might have!

I love the F so far. It's especially nice to be able to put it in "D" while dealing with traffic to and from work.

The F has very similar handling characteristics as the suby did with minor suspension mods (primarily bushings, swaybars and springs). I haven't gone crazy slideways style with the F yet but I can just imagine how much fun it's going to be.

I haven't done anything to the F yet and I'm planning (so far at least) to keep it stock. Primarily because I want to start building another suby rally car sometime next year.
