    New member from the Diesel community!

    Well have been big into diesels for a long time now, but having one as my daily driver since my other commuter got stolen on my birthday last oct. has been getting rough with diesel now at 5.29. So I have always like the Suby's, and thought it was time to get another commuter, so why not commute in style right?

    Got a 08 WRX sedan, wanted to get black, but ended up with blue. Don't really know why I'm definately more of a stealthy look kind of guy. Anyway, I'm a X body tech, so right away off came pretty much all the emblems on the deck lid, and took off the fugly chrome moulding and having my buddy paint it to match the blue. Also no real exhausts yet for it, and it was way to quiet so I had my buddies at my muffler shop biuld me a 3 inch to 2.5 with dual magnaflows. Now I have a little bit of that sound I've been admiring for so long. So far that's about it. I live in Orange County Calif. Tustin to be exact, hopefully there is some of you who live close by, to talk about these things with. Good to be part of a club

    You can see my truck at Socaps.com just look me up Hoss350 go to my user gallery. Hope to post pics of the suby soon.

    Hey thanks for all the hospitality.

    Yep stolen on the birthday, but it gets better. The guy I bought the car from says it was mint condition mechancally, and well...after I bought it, then 5000 dollars in repairs later it actually was. I got pretty screwed, and then screwed, because right when I got it back, that's when it got stolen.

    But you guys are right, I got a subie out of it. LOL
