Default New member, new bugeye (well, new to me anyways)

Hellllllllo everyone!

This is my first Subaru I've owned and am loving (almost) every minute so far!

I currently have an 88 SC MR2 and an 01 Rav4, but have moved over to the Subie club.

Got an 02 WRX sedan about a week ago with 28,500 km's or (17,700 miles for you folks down south).
Can't stop driving the thing and love everything except for the damn clutch judder.

I've posted a couple pics in the Western Canada forum but thought I'd throw up a few here.
Been doing a lot of reading on here, and have lots and lots and lots and lots more to go

Thank you everyone for your comments. This is exactly the reason I bought it because it was so clean and such low mileage. I was waiting to sell my cars, but just couldn't pass this up (and got approved for the loan!)

Not going to be any big mods until I sell my Rav4 and MR2 first.
Couple small things to start will be painting calipers, changing interior lighting, painting a few peices in the engine bay, and changing the headlight and foglight bulbs to a nice blue. I'm going for a blue/silver color.

Previous owner had it about 75% as clean as it is. Spent about 6 or 7 hours over the weekend washing, polishing, waxing (the body) and cleaning the engine bay.

Previous owner had a Toyota FJ, Honda Element, and 2 motorcycles so it wasn't his daily driver. He even said the first 10,000kms were mostly highway when he worked outta town! <-- someone should make a dancing rally pig

nice buy!!!
uh oh... :looks at tire tread pattern in pic:... :looks at pic of tire sidewall:
"POTENZA RE92"
btw, it seems the tire is under inflated because it seems the center thread is less worn than the outside two "lines."

If you mod, I say stick with STi/SPT stuff, maybe Prodrive 17"s and a Prodrive muffler. Nice subtle stuff, you know? And the OE underbody kit, front rear and sides, looks fantastic on bugeyes.

That engine bay is definitely, definitely impressive.

What is wrong with the RE92???????
You have a very good eye! I noticed that when looking at it too. That is actually the first thing I did when I bought it was inflate the tires to proper level. Guess it's a little late, but what are you gonna do?

I'm really debating on mods because it's such a nice clean stock car ya know.

You are very very very lucky!!!

Oh, dont get "blue" bulbs for your headlights. They worsen your visibility... go for HID.
