    New?

    I had a longish thread in purchasing forum as i looked at all kinds of WRX. I bought a silver 2005 today from Livermore Subaru. I pick it up tomorrow, then ill get some pics.

    some notes on it:

    1 owner
    100k extended warranty
    factory short shifter
    clear bra installed
    57k miles

    it had more power than i expected. lower turbo heat sheild is in place. this car is all stock. clutch is lot heavier than i expected.

    Hey Welcome again. My clutch has gotten progressively heavier as it has worn in. Initially when the car was new it was so light I couldn't tell wether it was engaged or not. Now my leg starts to shake after a min or two.

    i might have made a mistake.... see i have bad hip sockets. and havent had a M/T in a while. Well after only a couple hours of driving my hip is already aching deep. The clutch is way heavy. I think its only going to get worse each day I drive it. Really sucks, because I love the car. I might have to get rid of it and find an automatic which isnt much fun at all.
