    New guy

    Hello everyone! I'm a proud new owner of a 2003 Midnight blue pearl WRX wagon. I was driving down the road this weekend and noticed a "woop woop woop" sound coming from the driver side rear wheel...I believe its the wheel bearing. Anyone have suggestions on what to replace it with? Also I'm about to perform the 105,000 mile maintenance...replace the timing belt, acc. belts, pullies, and maybe the water pump. Anything else I should consider.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the club!

    I'd definitely search the stickies and look around the forum, it will help you find what you might want to consider looking at or swapping out for your 105k maintenance. Also, your wheel bearing issue does sound like this guy's, might be able to help you out:

    I wasn't aware "Midnight Blue Pearl" was a color for our WRXes, MBP = Midnight Black Pearl. Custom job? Post up some pics of your scoob!

    Oh well I may be wrong..but I thought it was Midnight Blue Pearl. Its black with blue metal flake. My dad had a 2002 door WRX that was the same color. Thanks for the info. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

    Yeah, that's Midnight Black Pearl. But really, you can call it whatever you want!

    Great lookin wagon, love the color (i have the same on my sedan). Consider doing the Koji headlight mod and putting clear side markers. Quite possibly my favorite cosmetic mod so far. Makes the front end look much meaner.
