    After some thinking... Pretty sure I'm going with the 05 silver Wrx with the sti wing. I love that wing! It also has a moon roof! New AC compressor and new BOV... Should be picking it up by this weekend!

    Wish me luck!

    This car is posted on an online auction... they didn't put up any engine bay shots, don't you hate that?? but I'm looking at it tomorrow so we'll see how it looks *fingers crossed*

    Seems like a good start though. First thing is those wheels have got to go, that alone will make it look SO much better!

    Agreed. A new BOV is not the best sign. The grapefruit cannon exhaust is another yellow flag. Be sure to check it out thoroughly. Better yet, if you know of someone with WRX knowledge have them give it a look-see.

    It is the best color imo.

    So I've been driving my new Suby around for 2 days, did an oil change yesterday, the oil was so done, glad I did that right away... I found out that the "grapefruit cannon" exhaust is an HKS... $600.00 from what I found on google shopping... it sounds AWESOME too, not TOO loud, just what you'd expect from a $600.00 exhaust. From what I can tell, looks like that's the only thing that has been changed out, has a brand new stock BOV..
    Only thing is the A/C Compressor sqeaks a little bit, think the bearings inside are going bad... Sorry, no more pictures YET, I work a lot over the weekend...
    ANYWAY she drives AMAZING, I will always own a Suby the rest of my life, I knew they were great cars, but you don't know anything until you get behind that wheel!

    Congrats! From your pictures it looks like you got a nice clean unmolested WRX. I see no signs of anyone tampering with your turbo/bpv. Does it have an aftermarket downpipe? Otherwise you got a Gem of a car.

    I really think EVERYTHING is stock except the muffler which is HKS, $600... which is crazy because that's prbably the only thing I would have WANTED to change. We'll see as time goes on if I want to do anything else to it, but right now it drives so amazing I don't want to mess with it.
    However On Monday I am getting a set of BF Goodrich g-force SUPER Sport tires! Very excited about that!

    I would think about a different tire.

    Read the reviews:
    BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S


    If I were getting an allseason I'd get either of these two:

    Hmmm... thank you for the input, I will do more research. I love my BFG All-Terrain T/A's on my Jeep but I guess that doesn't mean BFG is the right choice for my Subaru...
