Got Me Another One!

paid me deposit down on a scoob today, pickin her up in the week! its almost same as my old one, except it has aftermarket wheels and few other bits. Also, its got STI gear knob, steering wheel, lights, skirts etc and spoiler, and has "tuned by sti " badges in engine bay, does this mean anything?
i remember a friend had an identical one a few years back with the same 'tuned by sti' bits on it, he said that it meant something, i was sceptical, anybody any ideas??

Congrats!


Have a look at the "model code" on the VIN plate. This will tell you if you have bought a STi or not.
