    I want to upgrade My subie but i can't....

    Its sooooo sad I bought the subie about a month ago and with all my recent moves and transitions across the country i can't afford to make and performance style mods yet. It literally wakes me up at night... I just want a louder exhaust note or a BOV or more intake suction or wheels but I just bought a House and MOVED and UGH.... SO irritating....

    Eventually it will be a wide body wagon with a JDM STI heard.

    On the bright side, at least OP put money into a house which is an appreciable asset and the sign of a successful adult, instead of blowing it on wheels to put on a car which in ten years will be worth a mere fraction of what it was when it was new. How can you say this when you can afford a house!

    No but seriously, congratulations on the house and don't lose patience, it's just a car. Why not take it to an autocross? Then you can have fun now, and later down the road be able to really appreciate the upgrades you will have made.

    I agree - my wife and I are saving for a house right now. Between that and the warranty I have I have absolutely no justification for upgrading anything about the car. It's still a total blast to drive stock anyway, and it'll look much prettier modded out when it's sitting inside a garage

    Congrats man

    The way I see it, if you have the disposable income, no harm no foul. Unfortunately, right now I do not.

    So let me get this straight? Being responsible with your finances and investing in a stable asset keeps you awake at night? I wish I had your problems.

    But seriously, you're doing the right thing. Don't let it get to you.

    pshhh not much. I got the car for cheap and luckily have another car to drive. SO my car sits there longingly waits for an engine.

    Have fun with it for now.
