    Whas happnin? New member

    Greetings all. I'm thinking pretty seriously about purchasing an '02-'03 WRX sedan (or maybe wagon) in the near future. I currently roll an 02 Sentra SE-R SpecV and have had quite the bad luck with it, though it is a nice car )

    I currently check specplace.com, qr25de.net, and thevboard.com for Spec news under Meshgiath and Spectre.

    So I'll be crawling around here looking for the goods and bads about the 02-03 model year to figure out what I want to do - any tips/suggestions/comments are welcomed!

    Greetings and welcome!

    The bad? The 5 speed in the '02 - '03 is notoriously on the weak side. Subaru fixed this in the 2004+ (and perhaps late ’03 – do not remember right now).

    Oh, I forgot - the good? Look at all of the rabid WRX fanatics here.
