Went from being on here daily for years to taking a 5-6 month hiatus.

I actually haven't joined any Subie forums. Keeping it simple with the WRX. Buying AP and getting it tuned stock for MPGs or just with minor bolt-ons if I can find them for the right price. I've owned it for almost a year now and all I've done is CBE and different wheels to get rid of the fugly 16's.


I will say though I've met a lot of people in the Subie/AWD community and gone to a few meets. WAY better group of people than what I'm used to around here.

I miss San Diego and all you guys :sadbanana:

One thing I miss from my old company was the constant trips out there. Still don't have a big money client out there. Working hard to pick one up though. One of my co-workers was just out at SPAWAR last month.

Nah. Found a really good deal on some later model OEM 5X100's I've been rocking. They came with new Blizzaks so I've had fun in the snow this year



And this weekend I'm going to see if these fit on my stock suspension. If they do I'm trading for them :hiding:

^the subie's lookin good. Been really toying with the idea of an older wrx hatch lately as a DD.

And already on it lol Bought a new KW kit from a member on here back in Dec. Looking to get it on the car ASAP. Picking up the last few bits and pieces now but essentially have everything I'll need.

Mainly need to get my car to pass inspection first.. :unamusedpopcorn: The places around here have really cracked down on catless cars so I'm getting a HFC welded up that I'll be able to swap in and out for my kidd test pipe as needed.

Also gonna run boost control that I'm supposed to get from Steve, so I'll need to get the wastegate I get from him welded to my charge pipe.

As soon as those two pieces are complete and the car is inspected it's go time :beer:

Yeah I was originally going to try to flip the WRX but I've kinda gotten attached to it. Got a full stainless 3" catback for $250 and the car sounds better than my Honda :rotfl:

What's the best years to look at for older subies? Let's say I'm looking to spend 10kish.

My parents still have an 05 RSX-S with only 80k or so on it that I wouldn't mind taking off their hands if they wanted to sell.. It's just sooo similar to the Si with a much worse interior for every day driving.
