    New to Subaru - Introducing my bugeye

    So after years and years of driving nothing but BMW's (e30's,e36's,e46's) i decided it was time to get a feel for something a little different. This is way out of my comfort zone but for the week ive owned her is been nothing but pleasurable driving. Im also known to be a little anti-turbo but hey, got to adjust with the times and im tired of throwing piles into NA BMW engines and still getting my ASS handed to my by the local hot hatch brigade

    Its an O2, unmolested, unopened just had its 100 000Km Service and inspection. Also found that she has the Prodrive exhaust, prodrive intercooler silicone, and a prodrive tagged ECU (I have no idea what this all means by the way)

    K Enough talk, heres some pics. Excuse the quality

    Welcome! I recently made the switch from an e46 to an 02 wrx also, and haven't regretted it! The turbo lag was definitely helped by going stage 2 lol
