Yesterday was the first day of the rest of my life. I brought home a 2005 WRX Wagon with only 65,000 miles on it. Girlfriend needs a little work on the body--minor dents and scrapes. I have a feeling she was rode hard and put up wet, since her idle is a little rough, too.
She's completely stock, so after I get her detailed (wet sanding, wet sanding, clay and wet sanding), I'll be working on the tune and exhaust. I've been reading the boards, so I've got an idea of which way to go.
She's a switch from my hubby's SVT Focus, that's for sure! While his car has a certain amount of character, and some real stiffness in the curves, I can't believe how much more responsive the WRX feels. Anyway, we now have a family filled with variety. Which is nice.
Glad to be here, and looking forward to using the collaborative knowledge.
