    sure are a lot of car posts on the Chive recently…. Gee, I wonder what is going on with that???… :|

    • Raoul

      My though exactly : isn't The Throttle there for those posts… next thing we'll see semi nude dude or cuuuute fashion like on The Berry….

    • SpacemanSpiff

      Nah man it's cool, I remember this brought me to chive in the first place, along with architecture and to tell you the truth i kinda missed it. This was a couple of years back

      also this #1

    • good jeff

      Are they starting to phase out the throttle?

    • wdh

      Don't complain and don't ask why.

    • Knockout_Ned

      They did mention in DMA that they were day drinking & would probably be unproductive & lazy most of the day…

    • The_Dood

      The second photo in this album explains why.

  • Dave S

    2.5rsti / 22BSTi for the win !!

  • remix_

    #23 I would love to do this!

    • Spence

      Not Subaru's…. But still awesome.

      • wdh

        that's the hatchback. Fisheye view so it looks squished.

  • Dave s.

    22BSTi ftw!!

  • pointless watch

    Hold up, I'm still looking for a fuck to give…… ('-' ) (._. ) ( ._. ) ( '-' ) ( ._.) ( '-') … looks like I can't find it ¯(ツ)/¯

    • Logic is lost

      So why did you bother clicking on the post? Move along.

    • Yeah

      Kudos on the creativity though.

    • Dan

      holy shit sir, you are amazing.

    • wdh

      I bet your were DYING to use that lol.

      Anyway, big Thanks to chive, love this post. Sti driver here WOOT

      • pointless watch

        Yes I was :D
        cause I'm board :(

        well, I'm really not into cars but all you car lover enjoy the shit out of this post. See you at Hump DAR

            *See above for all the fucks I give*

  • Dwide Schrude

    I like this car but I'd never buy one used. You know whatever kid you're buying it from probably drove the liviing piss out of it.

    • RossC86

      I bought an 05 STi brand new off the floor when I was 19. Beat the hell out of it and then sold it at auction when I couldn't afford it anymore lol..

    • ancientlegacy

      doesn't matter if you drive the piss out of them. Subarus are epic, every single one of mine I've gotten over 210,000 miles out of.
      They just last, they're awd, so they're awesome in the snow, and they're sooo much fun!

    • wdh

      It is the only way to drive a STI. Thats why most people buy em. To spend more time driving instead of polishing.

    • Bugeye

      They're built for performance man! If you dont get on it every now and then she'll get sick on you.

  • KayMan

    30 photos of pure awesomeness on 4 wheels, #18 would have to be my dream car!!!

    • Jimbo

      Yeah it's decent looking. For a japanese car.

  • boob_cuddle

    Such an awesome car. Found my wallpaper for today. #12

    • Ateka

      My thoughts exactly, what a sexy beast that car is.

  • 2Dogs


    • Yeah

      Isn't that the point of the "character?"

  • gottaclimb

    #6… WRX not a full STi. Love all the shots of the 06-07's! Best looking year of the STi's. Go Hawkeyes!

    • the dark star

      hell yes.. I love my Hawkeye..

      • Kraken

        me too!

    • Jeff

      I agree I got a 06 STI myself best car ever…

    • sfb101

      Well leave it to me to disagree. I never liked the grill work on the '06-07.
      That's why I own an '05. Yes, I love that car!

  • A2_tha_MFK

    Pointless car! Buying AWD instead of a 4X4 is like buying BETA instead of HD 3D Smart TV, Pointless.

    • Scuba Steve

      You sir, are an idiot. Stock 06 0-60 is under 5 seconds (quicker than a Porsche) and can handle off road conditions with ease minus the terrain that require a lifted suspension. Mud, Snow, Rain, Ice = no problem for a Subaru WRX. I personally own a truck and love it, but the WRX is a completely different Animal. It's also the only 4Cyl I'm happy to say I'd own. The flat 4 is an amazing motor capable of serious power numbers (Call up Crawford Performance anytime) that would smack the hell out of a lot of V8 cars including the Mustang, Vette, Camaro, Chally and so on, on the strip and definitely on a track with twisties. Like I said, I love my V8's (currently own a 4th Gen Ram Hemi w/ 425HP at the crank, I have more than just a K&N intake) but I have a lot of respect for the WRX and even the older EVO. Their small motor size, power and handling produce numbers you simply can't ignore.

    • gottaclimb

      Does the thought of having a 4 cylinder factory turbo boosted AWD insult your gas guzzling lifted aftermarket turbo V8 4×4?

    • DEECEE

      Looks like you dont know shit about them then.

    • Flat4FTW

      uh…not if you're into hauling ass. Stock STI will eat most v8s. Tuned STI with 18g…its over.

      • ej257

        Really? Because I've owned a built STI, now own a Lexus ISF with a naturally aspirated V8, and it is faster than any STI that doesn't have at least 10k in mods in the engine bay

    • guest

      A 300hp 3300 lb car with AWD compared to a 4×4 truck or jeep?
      apples and oranges man, both are fun to drive but for completely different reasons.

    • Kerouac

      Rahhhhhh I drive a 4×4 im from alabama

    • anervusguy

      The salesman that sold me my STI told me he raced his 2010 Corevette against a WRX and lost. His car has a V8, the WRX only has a flat 4. I'm sorry but these little cars are absolutely amazing. They're great in snow, rain and handle like a dream. On the highway, I get nearly 30 mpg and I can accelerate from 50 to 80 in the blink of an eye. If this is what BETA is like, I'll keep it, thank you!!!

      • stinkfinger

        Lol @ you believing a car salesman. i have an air guitar that jimi hendrix played. im only asking 10k for it.

      • newt

        i believe it can beat a v8 for sure. i have a '10 wrx with a downpipe and tune. 0-60 in about 4.7 sec, very fast and fun little car for sure. I will take my little AWD over a 4×4 anytime

        • Heat bribe refs

          GTFO you fanboys. A WRX won't beat a Corvette, ever. They are fun cars, but don't mistake them for race cars.

          • crudslinger

            Umm, they are actually race cars, that's what the pics are of. That's why they all have the same paint job. Will they beat a Corvette on dry pavement? No. But they'll beat any other car on wet pavement, mud, or lose dirt if you know how to drive.

    • ancientlegacy

      I've gone places with my stock 95 impreza that lifted dodge rams and jeeps couldn't go.
      I've also pulled trucks out of snowbanks with it as well.

      • Leddy420

        I'm sure you have. This comment is so fucking stupid.

    • Arlo

      Comparing symmetrical AWD (Subaru) to a conventional 4×4 setup (any truck with front diff and transfer case) is comparing apples and oranges.

    • myself

      You really have no idea do you.

  • BigSchem

    Awesome looking car. Would love to take that over some dunes or rally roads.

    But shouldn't this be put on Full Throttle instead of Chive? o.O


    No 22b's in that lot.
    They are Impreza WRC's. The black one is an RB320.

    • wdh

      Those 555's are no joke.

  • Next

    Awesome idea here with the Subaru gallery! Chive on from a subie owner!

    • Next

      I say, …we may be on to something with the sticker idea…

    • newt

    • Mike

      • Killacush

        2011 STi chiver here! Chive needs a sweet window sticker so we can Represent.

        • dhaddon

          2011 SWP WRX; would definitely buy a sticker as well!

        • Next

          Whoa…I must say …thats an idea I would have to agree with! Without a doubt would buy it

    • Alex_5280

      2008 WRX with a Stage 2 map, love the cars! Definitely agree on a sticker!

      • bhows

        03 wrx with bolt ons and tune here! bugeye love!

    • ancientlegacy

      1999 Legacy GT limited std with the 2.2 swap and the SUS suspension, makes it easier to drive over the mountain roads during the winter. love my subie!
      Chive on!

    • sfb101

      2005 Sliver STI. Stage 2, and too much suspension work to say.

  • DaBox

    #12 is not a WRX, it is a 2.5RS . It might have a rex engine, but the body is 2.5RS

    • BajanChiver

      Its actually a 22B that was used in rally. Carried the 2.2Sti Engine for world rally up untill year 2000. Same shape as the RS. Both Awesome Cars!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/vuddha Vuddha Tran

        False. That's the Impreza WRC car, learn your history son. And the WRC Imprezas always had 2.0 liter engines, only the 22B road car had the 2.2 liter.

        • ryan

          Not only that, but STi's have always had 2 litres in Japan. And the WRX STi has been produced since 1995 int he GC body style, aka 2.5rs here in the US. Not all cars are the same between countries bro, get cultured up!

    People say when they win the lottery their going to buy a Ferrari. For me it would be a fully done up Subaru Impreza STi. True story.

    • cahir

      I'd go with both :P

    • http://thechive.com F3n1x187

      I'd pay for the classes afterwards and start smoking ferraris xD
