Default Just bought Sonic Yellow Bugeye

hey guys! Ive been on here for a bit now and today i finally bought my first subaru. I got an 03 Sonic Yellow Sedan, 105k on the body, 40k on the motor for $7000, and the car came with a spare broken ej205 Not too many problems with the car except that the airbag light is on, the diff has a possible leak, and the brakes need to be checked. Im looking forward to modding this thing and meeting lots of ppl at WBM

Congrats on the purchase. You definitely got the best color, and a pretty good deal at that.

It is VERY important that you post pics. Otherwise, Nick will sell the site to Yahoo and we'll be inundated with banner ads.

heres the first pic I got of it. Im picking it up on saturday, this thing astounded me, it had less rust than my old tC lol. If you guys know anyone selling used rally armors (blue text) or used hella supertones let me know. I have many mods planned but so little money lol

I love that color. I had the chance to buy a clean sonic yellow WRX locally in AZ, but wanted my 07 more.

That looks like a great find, I love how stock it looks, and that isn't a joke.

One mod that I did to mine (in addition to the same mudflaps you mentioned) was getting the sideskirts painted. You should consider it, I think its a good look:

The lip is from JNA and is affordable.

Unfortunately, that particular one died at the hands of a thrown tire tread from a semi. It lasted over a year, and is real resilient, but it couldn't take that. It did do its job though, and ripped off while keeping the bumper skin in tact.

OP I want more pics when you pick it up on Saturday!
