Hello everyone, my name's Dean, and this is my 2013 Subaru WRX in WRB. This thread will help me keep track of the slow progress of my car.

This is my third Subaru. My first car, and current winter beater, is a 1998 Impreza wagon. I have also owned a 2002 WRX wagon.

I purchased this car from the original owner in March of this year with 16,000 miles on it. It had tinted windows and Rally Armor flaps on it. It sat in my driveway for probably three weeks waiting for the lien release from the PO's bank. That was an agonizing wait!

Once I had it on the road, I was having a blast with it. After about a month with the car, one night on my commute home from work, the engine started knocking. I had it towed to the dealership, and it had spun a rod bearing. So after another three weeks of waiting, the car was fixed and back on the road!

And that gets us up to now. The following posts will have modifications, future plans, and pictures!

Input and opinions are welcome. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Freshly lowered the car on some KW V1 coilovers. It handles much better now! Got a lead on a fat rear sway bar, then it should be good in the handling category for a while. Wheels next...

Instagram picture. Just got it aligned as well, gonna have to get some more pictures!

Found a BT Aero lip and Whiteline 24mm rear sway bar locally. I installed the lip this morning, and will be doing the sway bar Friday. Debating whether I should buy endlinks now since I will have the rear swaybar out. I keep saying wheels next, but we will see how that goes.

Here are some pictures from this past Sunday. My girlfriend and I took a drive and I grabbed some shots along the way. These were before I put my lip on. Excuse the point-and-shoot, I need a DSLR.
