Default Let me introduce myself

Hey all, I am very new to the subaru world (owning one, anyway). I bought an 08 wrx, dark grey metallic, last week. From reading, I know most people don't really like the new style, but let me say that I really like it. I live in Gilbert with my roommate, who also drives a subie (and has a very special engine in the garage for it) . Well I hope to meet and get to know some of you.

To be honest, I didn't like it when the pics finally came out....but it grew on me. Plus i've already been talking with vivid, and have some special plans for it. hehe

I think if you go out to the Marina meet you will have people crawling all over your car checking it out

Gratz and welcome.

Is he making it Rhd? Some reason I remember you having to go right hand drive to do this swap or else it does not fit. I dont remember anymore, it has been a while.

Tis true Had something to do w/ the turbo piping, it did not get along whatsoever with an LHD legacy. I don't remember specifics either, it's been too damn long!

I always loved that car... back in college when my roommate was EJ20ing his RS, I was pretty serious about getting an RSK front clip and doing my own turbo Subie swap in a 3rd Gen Legacy... and then the WRX came out over here

Anyway, welcome to SWIC, new guy. I, as well, didn't like the new Impreza until I saw it in person... methinks once the STi's hit the US, I'm going to be slightly jealous.

slightly.
