hello

Post by jbelz » Wed Feb 02, 2011 11:38 pm

hello! i am jbelz from the Philippines! i'm so glad that there is a dedicated forum for MT cars. I'd been driving MT cars for 2 years but I am having trouble with my STi, it feels like that it's transmission is different from the other cars that I drove before though they are all MT.

What's up dude? Welcome. STi, nice choice. I may as well be the first to ask you for pics because it's about to happen a bunch of times.

I don't really have any experience with clutch intake/shifting an STi, but hopefully someone here can chime in.

I'm in San Francisco, hang in Daly City a lot, too. Huuuge Filipino population out here. You ever eat balut? I want to eat it but I'm scare.

Welcome again!

You can get an STI in the Philippines but try to find a decent one in Canada.

That's a nice looking car.

One that hasn't been modded to the point of self-destruction, doesn't have cracked everything, or cheap body kits, and one that isn't 5 years old and $40,000 due to mysterious and questionable mods.

You can always find new ones from the dealer, but I just can't afford that.

But you can buy Mercs, BMW, Audi in your country (england right?) cheaper..here in the Philippines the 318i BMW cause about $65000 same as the C180 merc what more the M series and AMG...

No I live in Canada. Different London. All of those cars you listed are even more expensive here than the STI.
