I recently purchased an 03 WRX. I stumbled across this site while browsing around for some information on possible upgrades and thought I would sign-up. My previous car, an 01 Miata, is a casualty of the first major winter storm here in Madison. As a result, I wanted to get something that could handle the snow better. There haven't been any bad snow days, unfortunately, but on the one decent snow day we had, I was quite pleased with the WRX.
