    My 96' wrx

    Here is my member journal for my 1996 Subaru Impreza WRX that I bought when I got stationed here on Okinawa in May of 2009. At first I liked it, but now I love it! It is the best car I have ever owned. . I'm trying to stay here longer now, so this thing will be going through some changes.

    Currently:




    Below is the list of things I have done to it. Hope you like it!

    Exterior:
    Ver 3-6 STi type RA aluminum hood (paint matched soon)
    Ver 5-6 Crystal Clear headlights
    ver 1-4 STi Rear spoiler
    Ver 3-4 Grill (temporary looking for Ver 6)
    Ver 3-6 Red/white Taillights
    Clear side markers

    Interior/Audio:
    STi shift knob with red stitching
    Alpine Double DIN
    Alpine Speakers
    STi foot pedals (previous owner)

    Suspension:
    Cusco coilovers
    Fuji Heavy Industries STi Strut bar

    Engine:
    ARC BOV
    HKS Legamax Exhaust (previous owner)

    Wheels/ tires:
    17" Enkei RPF1 (silver)/ Bridgestone Potenzas
    Spares STi gold 5 spokes/ Toyo tires

    Future:
    newer style shift boot, custom made for ver 1-3 interior to get rid of accordion style
    Ver 6 grill (still looking)

    Here is how it looked when I bought it.

    I can't believe how great the interior looks after 14 years. Actually, the car overall looks great for a 96. One of the many reasons I'm considering trading my boring 09 si for a 06/07 WRX.

    thank you, it has about 97k kilometers on it so about 60k miles.

    as for power upgrades, probably not. The roads are so packed here and Okinawa is such a small island (and the track is small too) so there is not really room for power here. I'll probably just make it look better, maybe get some more suspension parts and drive it how it is
