    New WRX Owner

    Hello all,

    I'm finally "upgrading" from a Honda to a car with more performance. I've loved my Honda, but I got to the point that just to find 5 or 6hp (naturally aspirated), I had to spend $600 and 3 hours at the dyno.

    I came across you forums while I was researching 2002 and 2003 Wrxs. Looks like a cool place and hope to get a lot of information from the site.

    I'm in the process of purchasing a WRX right now and would anyone have any "pitfall" to watch out for. Any known bugs that I want to make sure the previous owner has addressed?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Curtis

    Thanks for the links! I was searching the site after I posted this and realized the information I needed was already out there.

    Now for the long task of actually finding a car. I can only find 3 "decent" cars to check out in my area.
