    So Im thinking of this WRX Wagon as a DD

    I need a good reliable car as a Daily Driver, how does this Wagon sound? Should I get WRX as a Daily Driver? I just got tired of trying to build a high horsepower RX7 and keep it reliable, so its time to keep her in the garage and buy something new!

    I'd inspect it to see if it was modded previously. As far as a daily driver goes, I think a stock wrx would be awesome.

    Sounds pretty good. The rim size should be 16", though. If I were trying to build a high power car on the side, I'd probably buy a cheaper daily driver - maybe just a 2.5RS or something.

    Thanks for the input guys, I was just alittle worried about buying a turbo DD since all of my previous turbo projects have been track cars and therefore hardly reliable. This will be my first turbo daily driver so Im kinda nervous about reliability. And about half of the 15k I have is coming from me selling off all the little project cars I have completed over the past 6 years lol. If anyone wants to buy either a

    85 nissan low rider 720 with hydros or a
    76 Jeep CJ5 or a
    92 Twin Supercharged Buick park avenue Ultra

    hit me up lol.

    I wouldn't worry about reliability on the subaru, but one thing I would worry about is its past. Look this car over good.

    ya I have seen this one WRX on here where the person bought it full of mods and ended up being a lemon becasue the compression was all messed up, if its stock or close to stock then you should have very little trouble with them.

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    are you set on a AT? I think they're a lot less desirable in this market and you could probably get that car for less. People will of course disagree .

    In other news...

    If you're anywhere near DC, I am likely selling my 03 silver wagon, 30K, getting the big a$$ service on wednesday and I have no mods.

    PM if you're itnerested.
