    just got my first wrx!!

    when i was about 14 years old my family was looking for a new car, and we stopped by a subaru dealer, and i, just getting into liking cars, saw one of the 04/05 STi's inside the showroom. of course i sat in it and dreamed of days when i would own one! i was convinced i would have it as a first car (boy did that one turn out great hahaha) i ended up getting a 96 jetta that i ended up modding through highschool, then college came around and i picked up a 91 mr2 turbo that i built a gen3 3sgte for and that was my project while i daily'd the VW. this past september i went off to school where i am now attending the University of Idaho. The mr2 was totaled by a delivery truck 2 days before i left, and the vw is a vw...so obviously it always has questionable reliability :lol:

    my family is in the Air Force, and is getting stationed at Travis AFB in CA this summer and wanted me to pick up a nice reliable car i can use through college and could drive down if needed. So, i had my mind set on a wrx because it filled all my needs. AWD for the snowy winters here. 4 door for all my friends that i cart around. and its as close to my STi as i can afford :P

    so this past sunday i went and looked at one that was 2.5 hours away. Its an 02 with 90k on it for $7k. i went and liked what i saw, and on the test drive, i knew it had to be mine! it was the first world rally blue wrx i had found (and i wanted WRB because ive always wanted an 04/05 WRB STi) and i could afford it!
    so i picked her up on wednesday after 2 hours of dealing with the stupid owner! its not the blobeye like i had hoped for, but its close enough! ive only had it a few days, but i absolutely LOVE the car! theres nothing i feel obligated to mod like i did with the mr2 and VW! its all stock except for tein springs. and itll remain stock until i pay it off, which wont be terribly long, but i really dont have many plans for it because im very content with it right now, even if it is slower than the old mr2 was. :lol:

    ill try to clean her up and post pics soon, the previous owner gave it to me unwashed, un-vacuumed and with fumes in the tank :huh: so ill try to make her look pretty before i share, but i just thought i would check in and say hi!

    Congrats on the purchase man. I remember when I bought my first WRX 7 years ago. A WRX 02, in fact. I still remember the feeling when I picked it up.

    I just assumed he had a pretty specific look he was going for...maybe something from the late 80's early 90's...
