    New here, picking up my bugeye! few questions...

    Hey everyone, Im new here, so forgive me if this is in the wrong forum, so show me around and help me out a bit.

    To start off...I totaled my GST, a few weeks ago..it was a good car, pretty quick had some fun with it. But I've always wanted a subie. Now is the time. After seeing my friends fully built gt30r 08 sti, I had to get one.

    Ive always like the bugeyes, dont know why, a lot of people dont care for them but I love them. Im picking up a 02 bugeye this week in wisconsin....( I know, RUST RUST RUST!) well guess what there is none. A tiny spot above the left rear tail light that i will get taking care of.

    As far as mods, its pretty much stock except for APS turboback, APS bov, and the owner said its tuned...

    The only problem he said is that the fuel gauge sticks sometimes...

    Im just looking for you guys' input and what else I should check!
    THANKS A LOT

    Ian.

    Check the clutch. Put it in 4th or 5th on the highway and floor it.

    to be more specific- check to see if your RPM's jump but the car doesnt accelerate. this means the clutch is on it's way out.
