Awesome! Congrats to you!

Nice low end torque? You should of driven a 2.5RS before the WRX

That is actually my only complaint on the car.

Enjoy her! May the break in period be as much a hell to you, as it has been to me

Thumbs up

MSRP. Did not negotiate. Just happy to buy the thing!!

Got a free hat and locking wheelnuts.

Most expensive hat i've ever had!!!!!

Raining hard this morning....any skidpans around...???

I'm going to restrain myself to mod the car for now.....then i'll probably do the filter and exhaust as the car is too quiet and that lovely boxer engine sound is muffled.

Any Possum Link specialists in Vancouver........

Or what about MoTeC with ALS on the wagon? Sweet

Gethin.

Gethin: Technik Motorwerks in Vancouver. 604-873-3038. They've tuned Links before, I assume the Possum-Link would be easier to tune. They have experience with the Tec-II as well.
