My new NOT BMW.

Well, I sold the E30, got an E30, sold the E30, got a Miata, realized it was gay, got a WRX. When I got it, it was covered in Subaru rally team stickers and such, STI spoiler, ricey carbon tails etc. Took about 4 hours of cleaning and scraping to get it to where it is now. A couple things here and there and it will be good.

I took my buddy who had a 05 STI for a ride, he said it would keep up with his car when it was stock. That makes me feel a little better

It's an 02 WRX 5 spd.

Interior:
JDM Ver 7 STI seats front and back
Factory 3 gauge piller pod

Exterior:
It has a STI spoiler and trunk, but I took the spoiler off.
STI sideskirts
Front lip (don't know the name, it's not on in the pictures
HID lows
HID fogs
Rear diffuser

Engine/Drivetrain:
Bellmouth 3" downpipe
Borla Hush catback
Agency Power Pitch mount
Cobb Stage 2 91 octane tune
K&N drop in

Suspension/Brakes:
STI pink struts (factory adjustable)
Tein lowering springs
Mysterious sway bars
Mysterious aluminum endlinks
DBA 4000 rotors
Hawk pads

I'm probably forgetting things...













It has a couple little problems here and there. I'm doing a full fluid change on friday. It has a common crank pulley wobble so I ordered a Cobb aluminum pulley, 100$ vs the 500$ stock one. I have pro-drive knock off wheels in 17", but it's a World Rally Blue WRX, it needs gold wheels, so STI wheels are a must come spring.

Congrats!!! Subaru has to be one of the most reliable cars out there...They are just bullet proof, except the head gasket problem! One of the best sounding motors out there (non exotic) along with the VR6. Just watch out for oil leaks, it tends to happen a lot...and not too easy to do on the H motor.

I like, congrats dude. Even though the wing is a heat score, I think those look pretty dope on WRXs.

Thanks guys

Rudy, they look weird on bugeyes, the body lines are kinda of different. From the back it looks fine, because its the same at a STI, but at any side angle it looks weird. I'm going wingless, picking up a WRX wing, or putting a little lip on the back.

I like your style!

Sam, your fog is out!

It's alright, I guess. You have to let me drive it next time... when I'm not wearing my slippers.

If you think you look like a monster in the Roadster, think of what I look like in a Miata. If you've ever driven a miata on the street, you'd know why your statement sucks... It handles good, but the trade-off isn't worth it lol

After I left it actually turned back on, something with the ballast. It's fine now.

I need an alternator... eff my life.. Well I don't NEED one, but the rear bearing in mine is making a whining noise when it's cold and it's quite annoying.
