Hello all. My wife and I fell in love with Subaru's after car shopping a few years ago. The first car we took for a test drive was an 08' Impreza 2.5i. We were not looking for a sports car at all. We drove many cars over the course of a week of car shopping and we found ourselves comparing every car to the Impreza. AWD really sold it for us so we found a black 08' Impreza and it became part of the family. It has now been passed down to our son. That car really planted the Subaru seed. I started researching Subaru's and their rally heritage. Well, it didn't take long to convince myself that we needed a WRX. We bought a 13' SWP WRX and we love it!
We immediately replaced all of the horrible stereo equipment. LOL! Since then we have replaced the wheels/tires and debadged. I have a wish list of mods but plan on taking it slow.

I tried to attach pictures but I can't seem to make it work.

Welcome! We will need those pics ASAP!

If you download tapatalk (a forum app) just search "Knoxville" and this group should pop up. It's a lot easier to download pictures straight from your phone. I found out the hard way.

Lots of good guys here, glad you found us.

Hey guys and thanks! We originally wanted the Ice Silver Metallic but couldn't find one at the time. We got a good price on the Satin White Pearl and I'm glad we did. We love the SWP. It really pops in the light, especially at night under street lights.

I like the green. I've only seen pictures of a few in green. All custom with a lot of time and passion put into them.

Well if I ever see you at a meet, you'll see what I'm talking about, bad clear coat and looks like a matte paint job, when it's supposed to be gloss lol
