nice write up! i've always had a small soft spot for a turbo awd eclipse, i guess i've just always loved the idea of turbo and awd regardless of the brand...
never got around to buying one though, almost did 3 years ago but a 92 legacy turbo stole me away from it.
enjoy the 02! is it a wagon or sedan? i've had my 03 wagon for a bit over 2 months and couldnt be happier.
