Never have issues. Blizzaks on it now too.
well in response to myself, i traded my 2006 black STI for a 2007 silver STI a few days ago...

my friends 02 WRX is in the background. The trade was pretty even. The black one ran about 305 on the dyno at the wheels with a stage 1 tune. this one hit 313 at the wheels with a similar stage 1 tune, but this one is from Perrin and Invidia, and the other from Cobb. I traded because i was sick of boiling to death in a black car and the Cobb tune was causing me troubles (shifting was getting sloppy, hated exhaust note), and the guy I traded it to hated his current tune, which i happened to like. what can ya do! Anyways here we are, my new winter wheels. Hopefully will be picking up a thule rack later this month!

Good job on that trade!!! That was perfect situation. Was the trader (is that what you would call him ) a friend or someone you didn't even know?

Now I lay me down to bed, I pray the lord for pow to shred.
And if Its waist deep when I wake. Epic lines I vow to take.

He was a guy i met over the forums at iwsti. we had been following each others car journals, and we lived in the area and had taken rides in each others cars and even fiddled with them etc. we simply decided to trade because we each liked the other's car better than our own.

He'll pass you once you break down around the next corner, haha.

Love me a clean S4, but those Audi/VW reliability issues keep me away!

Haha, No Kidding!!!

Although the car has only broken down on me once (tensioner was making noise for 2k miles and I ignored it) I've contemplated selling it several times for that exact reason and getting into a Subaru or another more reliable awd vehicle. Can't bring myself to do it though. The maintenance is expensive but at 180k the car is still running great and the combo of performance, style, luxury, and all weather driveability is pretty solid.

this is what im saving my pennies for

but my first ride was a 1987 subaru wagon with racks, i once took 8 people up in it with all our gear. it was a beast i put 70k on it in 2 years, sold it at 250k and the guy i sold it to ran it to 370 before it lost compression

second was 79 VW camper bus with snow tires that i bougth for $700 and just replacedthe brake pads, this thing was the best because i could cook lunch in it, stay the night in the resort lot and haul 4-5 people plus gear comfortably. it blew a piston out after the second season and i didnt have the cash to rebuild it.

Then a 87 datsun king cad 4x4, this now sits i my parents hosue as their utility truck, starts after siting for months first crank every time.

now that i have a good job i have a 2004 f-140 supercrew 2wd. snow tires and 3 sandbags= no problems
