    Ive returned home

    Been about 7 years since I have been on clubWRX. I used to post under my actual name aaronwillen from like 2002 to 2006. Drove a bugeye all those years from my highschool graduation until I finished college. I dont see anyone around here from my past posting days, but long story short I had a stg4ish car with a VF34 and UTEC etc. Ended up having an oil line on the turbo rupture and I catastrophically lost oil pressure=blown motor. I sold my bugeye to a scrap yard and moved on with my life. Had 2 A4s in the few years after college, and have been driving an MKV GTI since 2009.
    We had a few back to back snowstorms here in Philly over the last few weeks, and 2 weeks ago I got VERY stuck in a hilariously small amount of snow and something inside me snapped. I needed something with AWD/4WD. After briefly toying with the idea of picking up a beat jeep and keeping the GTI, I decided to pickup a used WRX.

    I purchased a 2010 wagon with 54kmi on it this afternoon! I am literally giddy as hell, and incredibly nostalgic. I need to keep the mods to a minimum for a while but cant wait to tinker a little bit!

    So yeah, so glad to be back. This forum was literally "like home" to me for many years. When I last posted I was living this insane dream that I would go to medical school...and at that time it was really an insane dream thought I certainly thought would never happen. As I post here again, home with my new WRX, I am 4 months away from my medical school graduation, and will be starting my emergency medicine residency in July. It is really like my life has come full circle. Sorry for being a lil emo .

    I realize I dont know many/all of you, but I look forward to some more fun posting here on clubwrx, and getting to be part of the community again!

    Aaron

    Thanks! And I see you are from cuse. I did my undergrad studies at SUNY Cortland. Wife is from Cortland, and I was just at Upstate for a residency interview. Liked the program a lot, but will probably end up in Albany (where I grew up).

    Yup! Not my favorite place to be, haha. But that's pretty sweet and everyone ends up in Albany, I swear! And that's sweet! Upstate is an awesome place!

    Scratch that, wife is actually from Manlius, its been a long day! But yeah cuse is meh....its cuse. My inlaws still live there, so I am in cuse on occasion, hit up the usual old spots (dinos, brooklyn pickle, etc). Albany seems to be doing a lot better than when I moved away. I am miserable here in Philly and cant wait to get back to upstate NY.

    Ha! I just noticed that we joined a few days apart, you've been gone for several years while I was here all the time, and you still have more posts than I do.

    Hey man! I def recognize you and SD_GR. Hope all is well with you guys! I am sitting here looking at possible mods Things have changed in terms of what mods people are doing..sheesh.

    Also, my GTI has a blown ABS control module.......arghhh! Looks like its going to be 1000+ to repair. I need to sell the GTI ASAP since I definitely cant cover two loans!

    Thats funny! Ive been checking this site every now and again over the years, but felt a little weird posting bc I no longer had a WRX. You been driving the same car all these years?>

    And yes I have more posts, because when I was a 21 I was a huge post *****!!
