    New Bugeye Owner

    Hi Everyone,

    I just got me a 2002 WRX Wagon. Traded my 1997 Prelude and $3000 for it. It need some work but I'm glad to get my hands dirty on a new project. Hoping to learn lots from you guys.

    Welcome! As a precautionary warning, don't drive your new Suby like you'd drive your Prelude... the gearbox won't last long. It's always nice to see another Bugeye owner, and +1 on teh pics

    I always liked the prelude. Very pretty for a honda. But they screwed up not making it RWD.

    The greatest IMO automotive journalist of all time, LJK Setright, was fascinated by the Prelude and sang its praises. He had a point too. There's so much right about it.

    The Prelude was a pretty sweet car. RWD would have been nice, but AWD is what I need. I bought the WRX for going on trips up to Tahoe without worrying about putting on chains. I'm looking to getting the car back to stock and removing some of the mods already on the car to make it as reliable as possible.

    So far, I removed the HKS BOV, installed factory roof racks (still have the rail deletes if anyone wants them, clips are broken though), replaced bent right front lower control arm and replaced intake with an stock intake.

    The car has 183k miles on it. The thing I worry most about is the smell of gas when I start it up in the cold.

    Also, if you guys know a good shop in Sacramento, CA that could help me get this thing serviced, I would appreciate it.
