Default Fizzyl's AW06 STi Journal

Why I bought it:
It was my graduation present to myself after I finished grad school in Computer Engineering because I couldn't stop dreaming about it every night for a year.

When I went to the dealer to buy the car I was still undecided between AW/Gold and OBP/Gold. When the dealer showed me the 4 dirty white cars next to the 4 dirty black cars I knew immediately which color I wanted. All I had to do at that point was decide which of the white ones I wanted. I decided to compare VIN numbers. I chose the one with the last four digits 8008...
