I just drove up from Atlanta to Maine with my new WRX and I love it. I go through cars pretty fast, as I usually just buy a used one and then sell it for a little bit more. I've done 4 this last year, but now that I finally found a good deal on a WRX I plan on keeping it for a while. They're my favorite - I'm only 21 and already have my dream car for $6400. From Georgia, no rust, almost all stock. She's a sonic yellow one, and while I was a little hesitant about the color, they really made that edition special in 03, with the blacked out tinted windows and extremely nice rims coming stock. Only 1500 of them in that year and color, and it really stands out.
I do have a question though. Before I gave him the money, the only thing that I could find that might be wrong with it was possibly the turbo. I'm not sure if it needs to be replaced - I'm leaning towards it being fine, but I was just wondering if you're supposed to be able to hear it whistle with the windows down even with low acceleration. It certainly feels like it's got plenty off pull, and you can barely hear it with the windows up, but could somebody tell me how to audibly diagnose if its a tired turbo? ---While knowing it was possibly sounding a wee bit loud, I figured even if I had to replace the turbo it was a great deal. Plus I might be able to put a slightly bigger one on there if I do have to replace it, cause the only thing that isn't stock is the 3 inch downpipe and huge exhaust (and brake pads).
