    Intro... few questions for ya

    Just stopping in hoping to see what everyone can tell me... I'm getting married in June and the payments on my VW are a little much with the other expenses, so I can pickup a yellow 2003 WRX with an automatic transmission for next to nothing... whats everyones take on this? Do it or not?

    Heres what I'm coming from... 2003 Jetta 1.8t, chipped, suspension, etc etc, 5-speed.

    Good luck getting it for next to nothing.....yellow wrx's are somewhat rare to begin with and finding it in an atuomatic might make them even more rare.... but hey you never no

    Has this '03 WRX been modified in any way? Unless you are very mechanically inclined when it comes to turbo-charged Subarus, I wouldn't do it. Also a modded car is more likely to have been abused. How many miles on this WRX?

    Furthermore, have you checked the insurance rates for the WRX? They are HIGH.


    BTW, why are you an 'uberjerk'?

    Unmodified, 12,000 miles, this is through a business deal, would be transferred under our company so insurance is not an issue.

    I'm an uberjerk becuase I was banned on VWvortex and this was the only name I could think of that wasnt taken

    Well if in your eyes it's a good deal, the WRX has low mileage and is unmodified, and if insurance is not an issue...then go for it!!! But I warn you, automatic isn't as fun as manual!

    P.S. Congrats on getting married, and good luck!

    P.P.S. Just a forewarning: don't post p0rn, or you will be banned here too.

    Of course you can! (And will! )

    Here are some links I suggest you check out to give you an idea:
    The "Good first mods" sticky
    And here's great coverage of FAQs from NASIOC.


    P.S. Nice lookin' VW!

    I'm suprised no one asked this already. Why were you banned from VWvortex?

    Hmmmm...if you like doing stuff like that, go over and visit NASIOC. That whole website is based on needless comments and members carrying on with other members. haha
    Maybe Nastysock needs some Vortex mods to come over there!
    I got banned from boxerworld (a dog forum) for reasons I still have no clue about. They are real forum Nazis. I didn't recieve a warning or anything. Oh well. Cest la vie!
