    New Saabaru owner here

    Hey, Put my downpayment on a Saabaru 92x aero yesterday (couldnt pass up $8500 in rebates). Should be delivered Monday.


    <20k out the door!

    I have a buddy w/ an STi that we put a kingpin big turbo kit on, so i know a little bit about these motors already.

    I do hear that the trannys are super weak, is it any certain years or anything in common?

    Got my Silver Subaab 9-2X Aero on Tuesday! Mine was also less than $20,000. Yeah rebates!!! I ordered my first mod (Cusco rear strut tower brace) before I picked the car up.
