    finally introducing myself

    Been a member here for a while but havent posted any. My name is Ian and I live in Western North Carolina. I'm a regular on a few other Subaru sites.

    Anyway, I used to have a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS that had engine and suspension bolt ons. After 4 years of owning it, I decided I wanted something with more power, so being a completely loyal Suby enthusiast, I bought a 2003 Silver WRX Wagon(completely stock and with all maintenance records). Here are some pics of the RS right before I sold it.

    I liked the RS better!

    Anyway, even though the bugeye isn't my style, the WRX in itself is a great car. Congratulations on the purchase and welcome to the club, er party.

    Actually I do like the look of the GC style better. I loved that car, but it was an auto. About the last year I owned the car, I fell in love with the bugeyes. But I do plan on doing a WRX or STi swap in an L sometime in the future.
