Does anybody else obsess and can't help but to just stare at their rex after buying one? If not, I'm that guy.
After a very long and difficult search, I finally purchased my first Subaru. 05 WRX sedan, platinum metallic silver, 5spd with 90k. Clean, non-smoker interior. I've searched the car up and down, and have found not a blemish inside the car. Outside, it's got a ding here and there, but it adds personality.
I absolutely love it. My last car, bless it's heart, was an 01 Jetta GLX, and it was a turd. I've never owned a car I actually give a **** about and want to own forever. I don't ever want to drive anything else.. other than an STI.
I like it alot. It's a very responsive and tight car, and most definitely the quickest car I've ever owned. Needless to say, it doesn't like going the speed limit... and this might propose a problem someday. The only other cars I've owned that were boosted was a 92 MX6 and an 89 Turbo Supra, but the Rex totally dominates the two.
Once I pay out the ass for tags/registration/tax, I plan on modding it a bit. First thing that I guess I'd like to do to it would be a fmic and a bit louder BOV, apexi turbo timer and a boost controller. Eventually, a full exhaust from the downpipe-back.
So, being new to the Subaru clan, I'm in the dark on a few things. If WRX's are notorious for problems, what should I expect in the duration of owning my car? Also, what would be the optimal mods to install without breaking the bank?
I'll post more pictures at a later date.
I'm stoked to be apart of ClubWRX, and even more honored to call myself a proud WRX owner.
Life is ****ing awesome.
