Today I took the plunge and became part of the forum as I am eager and excited learn about my wrx, and chat with other owners. My boyfriend 'G&C', who is also a member, referred me to this site and just bought an '04 wrx.
I have put down the deposit and am now waiting to receive the rest of the money to purchase a 2002 rally blue wrx as well. So far everything is stock, and has kind of high mileage (100k), but seems to be in really good condition, and carfax verified that it was well maintained by its previous owners.
I hope to do some mods to the car over time like switching out the spoiler for the STI wing, a larger hood scoop and putting eyelids on the car, but haven’t looked too much farther than the obvious aesthetics. Over time I hope to learn enough about the car to make smart upgrades, and that is why I am here .
