Hey everyone,

I just took delivery of my STM '01 RS Coupe 5-spd yesterday and I wanna thank Orbiter for hooking me up with Specialty Subaru.

They have the coolest people working at the coolest dealer - Stephen, Steve, Jack, and Jerry(sp). Steve did everything to find me a silver one, which I believe was one of the last new RS's in Western Canada. It was a real close one..

Anyway, I'm new to my car and I've signed up here to learn more about it.. so.. ttyl and cy'all at the meets one day!

Ken.

PS - This car ROX!!!

Cool

Congrats on your new purchase!

I'm also a new RS Coupe (Silver) owner and got mine from Specialty Subaru only a few weeks ago. I'm glad I snagged one before they're all gone

Anyway, I just thought this was a good spot to introduce myself and say 'hi' to everyone too.

And lastly I'd like to add my $0.02 about the guys at Specialty Subaru: Fantabulous service! And it doesn't stop after the sale has been made. In the words of Darth Vader: "Most impressive..."

Mods? Nope, not at the moment. There a just a few small cosmetic things I'm changing (the rear wing) and I've ordered a set of clear side markers from Zigen.

Other than that I'll get better tires eventually but there has been so little snow this year that I may put it off until next winter and get as much milage out of the stock tires as I can.

How 'bout you?

I probably won't be doing anything until the break-in period's over. A new air filter and V5/6 front end will probably be the first things on my list tho.

I'd have to say that for me it's 'cuz of the cost and the fact that it's the last year to get a coupe and also a sunroof.. The WRX is just a bit out of my price range. lol

~K

PS - Well.. Let's just say that mentioning i-Club to Specialty is definitely a good idea. Worked out pretty good for me.

Why didn't I wait for a WRX? For the same 2 reasons that a lot of us didn't. 1) Price and 2) Appearance. 165 horses is plenty to fill my stable.

IMHO, the RS looks road hungry and aggressive while the new Imprezas look like they belong in a McDonalds Happy Meal.

I know... I know... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But this beholder was glad he got an 01 Coupe while he still could!

As for Specialty, I wasn't a iClub member then but they treated me like gold anyway.

Yeah, go to Specialty and find Stephen rom the Service Department, he will direct you to the Manager or their sales person, for sure you can get a great deal!

I've just ask the price diference fro RS and WRX, after tax, it would be about almost 10K.

Hehe, and for those who want an Impreza Brighton (the base model wagon) they only have 2 left, and probably my parents will take one of them.

Right on.. 165hp is enough for me, too.

OMG the front is aggressive!! and that's just the headlights.. In my opinion, it's unbelievably intimidating with the V5 bumper and huge fogs!!
