    Howdy

    Well 2 days ago i went and test drove a 06 WRX, and i been contemplating it for awhile, so im returning the sleeper focus back to stock, selling the parts, and trading the car in on a black 06 Wrx.

    Dont know much about them, just figured id register and read anything and everything. Mostly gonna be a "show" car due to the fact that i make commission at a custom shop and i needed something a little more show worthy than the focus.

    But id like to have more go than show, so im not a total ricer ;-P

    theres some other pictures at work of the car on the outside, for the most part it was a sleeper till just recently when i became assistant manager and now make commission so i need somethin i can show off my work.

    I had a full system lined up for the hatch: Pionneer 5700 Screen, Alpine Type-R 6.5" components x2 up front, 2x Alpine Mrd-1000's, Alpine Mrd-f345 4 channel, 2 12" Alpine Type R's. but i guess its all gonna go in the Subaru now =p

    I dont like super crazy paint jobs and wild body kits, i like to keep it clean so you dont have to worry about the "tasteful" stuff.

    Oh and before you ask the focus had everything you could do besides internals and boost.

    Good call on selling the focus. Believe me if you want to impress the guys at work a focus won't do the trick. Rare bumper or not.

    I hope the focus is no indication of you modding path with the wrx. Keep it neat and simple and we won't kill you.

    Hey whta shop do you work for if you dont mind me asking. And also welcome to the boards. What dealership did you go to? I just bought my 06 wrx from Herb Gordon in Silver Spring a few months ago so feel free to PM me any questions you may have. Good luck.

    Welcome aboard! Black is one of the better colors for the Birdeye cars, IMO.

    I work for Auto And Truck Outfitters in Parkville. They do alot of custom stuff but they didnt do REAL custom stuff until me and one other guy started here and we got rid "the junk" IE: Apc products. Now we do alot of glass work and have better audio and better guys workin for us.

    Yeah im more of a "go faster" guy than a "show" guy, but again i make commission so it will be nice to have a decent car to take to shows so i can get people to come pay me to "pimp thier rides". ;-P

    Welcome to the club!

    I saw your post in the Mid A section, it said you lived in dundalk, me too, and i'm pretty sure i've seen your focus on merrit blvd. a few times before.

    BTW, congrats on the new car, black looks really good on the 06's
