Never seen a white one around. I wonder who it was. If I saw it, I'd chase him down lol

Always relevant. Rule #1 was violated here, and appropriate action should be taken. Have you contacted the police about this?


Vincent: ... I had it in storage for three years, it was out for five days and some d**kless piece of s**t ****ed with it.

Lance: They should be f**king killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.

Vincent: Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that a**hole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it.

Lance: What a f**ker!

Vincent: What's more chickens**t than f**king with a man's automobile? I mean, don't f**k with another man's vehicle.

Lance: You don't do it.

Vincent: It's just against the rules.

From my experience (having had stuff stolen off my vehicle), the police report is the most important bit. Be sure to include as many descriptions and pictures as possible. If you do confront the guy who stole them, (and call the police) the cops will have a paper trail to lean on and bust the f**cker.

Wow that's so ****ty.

I too have seen a white one around.. couldn't tell you who owns it though. I'll be on the lookout in parking lots... if i see those parts i may just steal them back for you.

Vigilante justice!

Thanks for the support guys. I don't have much faith in the police regarding this, I'd probably trust someone on here to help me track them down before the police do. But it can't hurt to file the report. Anyways, to give a better description of the parts to you guys: the fog covers were replicas, and the spats were brand new oem. I painted all the pieces raly blue pearl myself, so the finish isn't completely professional. None of the pieces were installed using original hardware on my car.

The fog covers look like this, but without the stickers:


And the spats look like this:


(neither are pictures of my actual car)

Haha. At this point I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I probably won't see the parts again. Unfortunately I've experienced theft several times before and I've learned that there's not too much good that can come from anger and frustration. I'm not giving up on the search, but my car still drives the same with or without foglight covers and spats, and that's what's important.

Anyways, I'm taking my girlfriend back to Chicago tonight for the weekend and I'll be dropping her off back here in kzoo on Monday. It'd be nice to meet up with some of you guys when I come back. Since I'm off of work, I'll probably stay here for a few days or so once I get back here on Monday. My girlfriend has school and work for most of the day so I just hang out at her apartment and watch TV/chill. I don't know what your schedules are like but I'm down to hangout, so let me know if there's anything going on.

We've been trying to coordinate more locally. Usually its landed on a Thursday or Friday evening. I'll likely be out of town until Thursday this week so that likely leaves me out for the moment...

*Off topic* so today, being Valentine's day, i took my lady to the Mongolian BBQ place on westnedge. I live in allegan so its a little trip there. Right before i exited 94 i got a wiff of coolant and my water temp gauge peeked. I stopped and opened my hood ymto see my coolant boiling over. Im not sure what it could be. I had it towed home (family discount from the tow, thank god) and now i need opinions /ideas. So far; collapsed hose, bad water pump, obstructed hoses, blown headgasket (please no), or faulty thermostat.. any/all ideas will be accepted gratefully. Thanks guys. (By the way, 1999 GM8 ((RS 2.5))

So, I was up in GR yesterday, and parts of today helping out a friend with something. Look what I ran to at an AutoZone parking lot! Another 2.5TS Wagon, in black even! I don't think I've ever seen one in person other than my own. Dunno if this guy is on NASIOC or not, but I didn't really figure out who he was in the store - didn't want to be weird or anything. The friend who was with me thought I was an idiot for snapping the picture.

Cheers to the random anonymous TS Wagon driver!



Mine is on the left, obviously.

Looks like he is a normal subaru owner, he probably would have loved to see another MPB 2.5TS.

So funny you found a twin!

^^ Nice!! I always track them down when I see a Subaru owner. I like asking older owners how they enjoy their cars too.
