2012 Impreza Sport
Marine Blue Pearl
I figured I should start a build journal to document the path I plan to take in modding my car. I picked up a 2012 Impreza Sport Premium in Marine Blue Pearl at the end of January. I have been lurking on this site and IWSTI for a couple of years readings and learning in hopes of getting an STi. With the cost of gas and potential engine trouble I decided NA was more economically feasible. I went to a few dealerships looking for a 2.5i Legacy but wasn't too keen on the electronic handbrake. So I found myself at Irvine Subaru with Marcelo helping me. That's how the story begins.
As you can imagine, idle hands are the devil's play ground and the urge to mod bit right away. Problem is, there isn't yet a lot available so thinking out of the box is a must.
