I am about to turn 48 in July. I got my new 03 WRX in March 03. I have 96,000mi on it. My only mods are Hella horns an intake silencer delete with a K&N drop-in,Kartboy SS+bushings and Whiteline steering-rack bushings plus end-links. That is only because the stock ones failed.
It is in pristine condition. People tell me they can't believe it's 10yrs old. The only thing that shows it's age is the wear mark on the drivers side floor mat. It shines like a new dime!...Do Rally Armor mud flaps and window tint count as a mod?...I think I WIN!!!
