New Spec.b Owner in Ohio
 
2 Attachment(s)
New Subie owner here. Bought my 2007 DGM spec.b 6/29. Traveled with my buddy and his '11 wrx to chicago to pick it up, havent stopped smiling since. Shout out to Zero1 here. Met him and his car a year or so ago and have been in love with the legacy's since.

Looks real slick. What type of wheels are those?

.NetSubie 07-07-2013 01:39 PM

They are Enkei STI wheels
Edit: ^wrong. They are rota gravels

Some further research on my part, wurkenman is correct. They are very, very similar, but they are the Rota Gravel wheels. Thanks for the info!

Crazy! Thats my old car! Traded it in on an 09 335i.

Feel free to PM me if you ever have any questions. It is also lowered on Swift wagon springs and has a stage 1 open source tune.

Also curious what you paid, i know they had it listed pretty high.

Awesome. I was wondering if it was lowered. Ended up paying just over 20 and got em to add a 3 year warranty. It was still a little more than I wanted to pay but it is very clean and I love the wheels. Just added LED's today.

Awesome, it's a great car and it has been well maintained, I have no doubt you will enjoy it. It was very hard to let it go, and was one of the best cars I have owned (and I have owned many)!

Why did you trade it in?

Yeah they are replicas of the LGT STI Enkei wheels, the major difference and most important is that the STI enkei are roll forged(MAT). The rota are cast. So even though they look the same, they are far from it.

Clean ride! Welcome.

Got a good deal on a 335, in the color i wanted. I am a BMW fanboi and was looking for a 335 or m3. Plus i just get bored with cars, the spec.b was number 16 for me and has my personal record for longest ownership...

That explains the major price difference.

I see. I am coming from a 2000 mustang. So far this car is better in every way, except headlight removal...

Welcom from another Ohioan and an ex spec b owner too!
