New to subies and only an amateur car nut. I only know basic repairs and concepts but would love to get more experience. My biggest dilemma lack of space. I live in an apartment and can't do much work there.
I used to own a turbo focus and was going through boost withdrawls so I started looking for a used WRX several months ago but couldn't find any reasonably priced. I finally broke down and bought a new one because my car was about to take a shit while I was on a road trip to Florida so I picked up a 15 CWP base to drive back. I love it!
I posted a few other pics in another thread but here they are again in case you missed them. Let the modding begin!Image

Wut? That's better than the wife gets in her Impreza Sport. And it is slow!

I got 30 once on a road trip to Charlotte in my WRX. Probably could of done better had I stayed out of triple digits on the speedo. :lol:

If Subaru releases a WRX in wagon form, we might have some choices to make.
