    Well, I pulled the trigger!

    I am now the owner of an 02 sport wagon :-)
    It has it's small blemishes but nothing too serious.



    Loving the blue checkered inserts on the seats


    I've had this suede Nardi wheel with blue stitching that I am thinking of throwing in.


    Is there a trick to replacing the srs wheel with a sport wheel and avoiding a srs fault?

    Thanks guys. I am in love with the new wago! It is all I was looking for in a new daily...

    Well done man. Bugeyes are where it's at. How many miles are on it? You'll be glad you went with a manual.

    Just over 100k. It's a low mileage vehicle accodring to car fax :-)

    The interior is super mint aside from the shifter and wheel having a bit of wear. And it completely stock. I'm assuming it was a commuter because the passenger and rear seats look and feel as if they have never been sat in!

    I'm very excited to make this my own. Subtle plans for it. Window tint ofcourse, then some rally armor flaps, k&n drop in, up & down pipe, and a Cobb AP.

    I don't want a loud exhaust, but I want people to hear that sexy growl of the boxer lol! I figure a catless up pipe and an aftermarket down will give me the sound I am looking for...

    Happy to be part of the community. Subies are all new to me and this place has helped me a bit already.

    Was that a serious reply? Does it not make much of a diff with a drop in filter? Sorry, i come from the honda community where 99% of replies are sarcasm...

    Frams are good filters and cheap you can get high flow drys online at a price but unless you tune you'll throw a cel and at their price I'd hate to throw one out every few oil changes

    I've had a K&N filter since last April and I haven't had any problems with the MAF getting gummed up. Then again I haven't re-oiled the filter yet. It's not difficult at all to clean the MAF. About a 5 min job and most of that is dry time.

    Nope, no CEL. Only had a CEL (Cylinder #3 misfire) once after installing a lighter flywheel and haven't had one since.
