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!
