Rallysportdirect.com
Subarupartsmall.com ( oem replacements)
Subaru.com. has a link somewhere for the SPT parts
Rallyinnovations.com


I can keep going but they seem to be a good start. Once parts are found, I usually do a good search on part #'s or product name to locate cheaper distributor or cheaper shipping.

Hatch. How about yourself? I know there's another SWP WRX hatch and an STI hatch driving around in the McAllen area, too. Plus there's Aluma's sedan.

I heard Bert Ogden is doing a huge markup on the BRZ. Doesn't suprise me. I think that's why everyone is buying elsewhere.

How can a salesman say its not worth buying? Its one of the most anticipated vehicles they've had in the last 6-7 years.

Turns out im going with the Blouch turbos and not FPs. Just trying to figure out which one to get. Going with either 18G or 16G. I dont plan on making more than 400hp, since I dont plan on upgrading the internalls for a while. Figured after this turbo upgrade im focusing all of my attention on the suspension.

Can I go test drive your ordered BRz for you then? So it gets some love before Bert Ogden rapes it.

Corpus dealer called me this morning that they have a STI I asked the price 37,045 I was okay with that and asked to have the process done over the phone.. everything was going good.. Guy calls me back and says he has good news and that we got approved BUT, that the car is almost 41k because of a mark-up... Well, a**hole you should have told me that PRIOR to running my credit.. He replies with, oh I'm sorry, I didn't know. I swear, I probably won't buy another Subaru after this, I'm more then sure I will trade it in next year for something else.

I would have made a deal about the original price they gave you. That's the price they said.

I did.. all he could say was, "Sorry I barely found out." I called SOA and put in my complaints to the dealer here and the one in Corpus. They didn't say much either.. Makes me want to trade this in for a Honda when I'm done with this car..

BRZ? I know there's a blue FRS (same thing, just a scion) at Cardenas near the airport. Its a blue colored one.

And I test drove it....twice! Because my wife wants it.

A white/silver BRZ was down here last week to drop of the promotional things.

I also know Frank Smith sold a FR-S, I believe a red one.

Too small for me. I liked the hatchback because of trunk space. I didn't get into STi yet. But I'm keeping them close for when the time comes.
