Awesome car man I absolutely love it. I tried to convince my dad to import one a while back but no dice :( I think Subaru should have imported the STI themselves as I know of plenty of people who would want a sports wagon.

lip looks nice if only you could fill the gap where the 2 pieces meet. and yes needs a lowered ride height and i think thats enough for the car. looks fantastic the way it is.

That's a cool ride....how much did it cost you in the import, did you live in NZ for >1 year to be able to apply for the import.....did you do it yourself or through an agent? Cos I heard DIY could be quite a hassle!

I went through a Broker, and even then it was alot of Hassles.

Customs really F#%k you around and Quarantine is a F#%ken Joke.

Nearly $10,000 just to get it here and registered.

That's crazy. I was thinking of importing a car overseas but still having 2nd thoughts about it. The amount of paperwork required is overwhelming, having the need to deal with Dotar, AQIS, RTA and Customs, and that's only the Aust side of it. Add shipping, insurance, tax, it sounds like a very expensive exercise and very time-consuming as well.

I hope that your STi wasn't modified when entering Aust otherwise it would be a pain to put the stock parts back on.

But as you said, it was worth it in your case, having such an exotic vehicle is something that would bring you satisfaction for the years to come!

afaik personal imports don't need to turn back to stock. only SEVS do.

i just gone thru all the trouble and i regret not buying from good local shops.

anyway love this STI, well worth the effort.

Tinted the two front windows ( thanks SOLARTINT HORNSBY ) and sold my Daily, so chucked those plates onto the Forester... they read PHAT AS, similar to my old Green SF5 Forester GT {PH47 AS}

The car looks great, I see it almost everyday driving through Hornsby. Congratulations on a clean, individual ride. In saying that, with the interest/complements everyone seems to be throwing your way, it mightn't stay that way.

We may end up seeing many more on our roads... :)

Update..

Needed new tyre's and had very tiny gutter rash on one rim.

So got them cleaned up and painted House of Kolor Black Gold with 70% Flattener for that Matt Finish look

Also fitted Toyo Proxes 4 225/45/18's all round, still a little undecided whether I like these or not, very soft tyre, grip well, but alot of side wall flex. I'll put a little more pressure in and see how I go.
