Hello everyone! I am starting my own build thread as a kind of personal log of my work. I have always been in LOVE with the WRX and STI hatchbacks I think they are awesome and great looking cars! For the last five years i have been driving a 1994 Honda Accord and I very much enjoyed and used that car! (I put 60k on it in 4 years!) So this year I am working 2 jobs and decided to spoil myself a little and I a found my 2010 WRX in the Denver area! I paid $15800 for the car and am going to work on quickly paying off my loan! The car has 94k on it and has a good chunk of modifications done to the car. The previous owner told me he had a long highway commute that he did almost every day for a year or 2. So I'm not to worried about the mileage. I am planning on doing the 105K maintenance when that time comes.
So enough of me talking, this is the car!
This is a list from the owner of the work and mods done to the car.
