Wooohooooooo, so I finally got an 04 WRX!!!
I picked it up from a dealer at 11k out the door by leaving him my stock 93 civic on a trade. The car has 67k on it and was bought from a bank at the end of a lease term.
I think I got a pretty good deal on it, but I need to have some work on it and hopefully the previous owner didn't beat on it too badly.
I took it to a mechanic and they said I needed new CV boots, fan belts, a tune up, a new power steering hose (it's leaking fluid) and possibly new motor mounts. All 4 rims are slightly bent- the previous owner must have hit some nasty potholes.
The car drives pretty well. I noticed just a tad bit of wheel shake around 70mph... didn't know if it was just the car or the bent rims.
The car already has a greddy BOV and an injen intake.
Of those repairs, what do you guys think I need to do first?
oh and it sounds like i should be using Mobil1 10w30, correct?
also sounds like turbo timers on a wrx are a waste... really?
Thanks for the answers and I can't wait to start reading these forums all day at work!
