So in the summer i had a change of heart and traded in my 2010 Volkswagen GTI 4-door Carbon steel grey. I wanted a white car and awd. Tried to get the golf-r but for that amount of money they were asking and so little HP it wasn't worth it.




So my Brother in law insisted that I take a look at Subaru WRX. Went to test drive a sedan at Fitzgerald in White Flint, MD and i loved it. So the search went on I wanted a White Hatchback premium with no add ons. Fought with that delaer for a while even put a depoist on a car they never got. So I ask for a my deposit back and went elsewhere. Looked online to see if any dealer was getting a new subaru wrx hatchback in SWP but premium with the heated seats, heathead winshield, with sunroof. Found a couple but had bad luck because they would be held for someone who put a deposit. A month after searching I was in luck and found one that was in route to Stolhman Subaru in VA so I called right away and went in the next day. I spoke with a sales guy there and he told me they werent sure when it would come but I could put a $500 deposit so I would have first dibs on test driving the car and looking at it. So I did and then I waited and waited for the car to come, two weeks in I got a call telling me an ETA of July 19th, 2013 the car would come in so I was excited it was almost here. The day came and I got a call that Friday and I would be able to get it Monday since they had to clean it and make sure it was sellable. Went in that Monday July 22nd, 2013 test drove it and loved it. Clutch was softer and not as stiff as my friends 07 wrx limited. Did paper work and drove it home that day.

Very nice looking WRX! I too came from the VW world and while I miss the interior of the VW...the Subaru more than makes up for it with the driving experience. Once you start modding it'll be so hard to stop. I'm trying to keep from modding, but I'm too deep now and there is no turning back

Driveshaft vs. o2 Sensor and Driveshaft wins




Replaced with new o2 sensor and zip tied it so the wire wouldnt be close to my driveshaft and cleared the code and added my maps from my cobb accessport.


Did my oil change too since my car was already on jack stands, Motul 8100 SAE 5W30
