    New 06 Owner

    Hey guys,

    I just picked up a 06 wrx a few days ago. The car had about 29k on it, the previous owner traded it in for something more family oriented. Ive been into mr2's since i started driving and this is only my 2nd none mr2 I've owned. Ive owned 5 mr2's and i still own a 91 non turbo that is my project car. My plans for the car are to keep it clean and just drive it. Here are some pics sorry i had to take them with my phone, because i dropped my camera in oil when i was doing a t-belt on my two. For some reason all my phone pics are blurry looking and look like some sort of dream sequence sorry.







    And here is a pic of my mr2 on a car dolly after i split one of the metal heater core lines above the gas tank



    and here is were it sits now waiting for me to find time to work on it

    Thanks man, I'm liking the color. The funny thing is this is the first car Ive owned that wasn't white. All my mr2's Ive owned were white with blue interiors, and the my Mazda mx6 was white with a burgundy interior. Still trying to get used to having a backseat and i trunk i can fit stuff in.

    welcome to the club.

    just to make sure- i see you have an exhaust. do you know if it's a catback or a turboback?

    if it's a TBE make SURE you have engine management! :]

    Its just a catback, I'm looking to get rid of it, and replace it with the stock piece or a stock looking exhaust. The can on the back is to big for my taste.
