    Thumbs up new guy sayin' hi!

    How's it goin'? I've been dreaming wrx dreams for the past year or so, and it looks like I might be getting myself a kick-ass x-mas prez this year, so I thought I'd stop in and say hey!
    I'm up in wickedawesome B.C., home to overpriced rexs/sti's... so I'm pretty sure I'll try importing something from the U.S. Does anyone with experience have any tips on buying sight unseen? Not adviseable, eh?

    Thanks!!

    welcome to the club.

    i wouldnt advise buying without seeing/test driving. wrxs/STi's are known to be modded and beat on(usually). i say look for a stock one owner wrx/STi prefreably and old man or woman goin through a mid life crisis haha cause you know they wouldnt do anything bad to the car. but if you find one i say bring it to a 3rd party to have them look at it even get a compression test done on the motor as well.

    good luck in your search

    Thanks all!

    NjBuGeyEdWRX - Yeah, I think I may just stick to the WA/OR area, so I could just drive down and see for myself. Do you guys use AAA for your inspections?

    wrxtreme06 - thanks, and OH HELL YEAH!!!! I'm what you'd call a die-hard. Bordering on obsessive, LOL

    Cheers!!
