Post My Toronto/Markham Trip & Impreza sightings (Long)

Just got back from Toronto (Markham to be exact). Overall I had fun. I wish I had more time to plan but never the less it was great. I seen quite a few imprezas one one the 401 in toronto a blue one with spats and yellow mud flaps. Than on Warden ave I saw a silver one with some yellow winsheild banner sticker. Oh yeah one more in a plaza at warden and route 7 in the parking lot near the future shop a real clean bluw one with exhaust,spats,tinted windows. Just wondering if any of you guys own these?

On saturday I went down to BC Auto and whoever posted was right. They tried to rip me off left and right 70 bucks for bulbs 400 for a Apex rev speed meter and than they had no body pieces in the store. On the phone they had everything in stock but when I got there they didn't! %#$@ I tried forever to get a hold of Automorph and go racing but no luck. Than promax I was warned and I found out they said when I come I could pay than most likly they could get it out of the warehouse but I don't see why they couldn't pull it before I got thereGRRR.!

Well I did find some great places to get somethings I can't get in detroit. On Kenedy off of Route 7 there is a Chinese mall and I found Best Motoring VCDs. Than in the chines mall over on 7 and woodbine I found Intial D DVD or VCD than I found Legends of Speed DVD. Which was great I thought forsure I would have to mailorder these if I ever found them.

It was great I hope next time it isn't as windy and I have more time and money.

Thumbs up

The Chinese mall you went to was Pacific Mall, a great place for "the little things"
You should check out our site www.toronto-subaru-club.com and perhaps your next visit will coincide with one of our meets.

With regard to the tuner shops you visited...you will run into that in most cities where the import scene is strong...up until the last year, most of the members were getting their stuff from internet-based companies. Not really because of attitude but because of availability. Too bad Go Racing is no more..that used to be the "Meeting Place"

You may be able to identify that yellow mudflapped scooby in our photo album...check it out!

Reliable sources have said that Go Racing will no longer reopen (as Go Racing)

MichiganRs, yes I'm in Windsor (the only RS in the city). I recently moved here from Toronto (I got a job in Detroit) but still hold my status as committee member for the club. You guys in Michigan are known as SEMSO right? I'm a member of your mailing list.

As for Speed of Sound (good bunch of guys btw) I'm not sure if they still hold events. The next "big" event will be Darknights in Toronto this summer (a la Markham) I believe we have plans of representing Subaru at that function....not too sure yet though. (this calls for a committee meet....Plantation anyone?)
