    Thanks for the nice comments :)

    I think Scooby is just a friendly nickname that has become attached to the brand in the UK. I believe in the US though they are more commonly called Suby's ?

    Scooby Doos, Rexies, Subys. All are good names for them.

    Nice car there Bartop. Is that actual CF you are talking about or just a Carbon Fibre look alike coating over fibreglass? Actual CF would cost an arm and a leg (and then how would you drive it?)

    Nice scooby, but that HKS sticker on the front wing with the pink doesn't go with the theme imho. It's too pink :p

    Yeah - gimme a flash if you see me ;)

    Got the prodrive performance pack which takes it to 265bhp 0-60 in 4.8 etc
    Prodrive springs which lowered it 20mm or so and transformed the handling :)
    Short Shift going on in a couple of weeks when it goes in for service and looking at big brake upgrades at the moment..

    Nowt wrong with a flash of pink mate ;) plenty of pink bits on the Sti's :)

    Am seriously considering a big makeover on the gfx though at the moment, something along the lines of the Subaru Cusco JGTC car but in silver obviously - summat like this
