    New WRX owner from Australia!

    Hey guys, my name is Shannon I'm 19 and I live in Adelaide, Australia.

    A couple weeks ago I made the upgrade from my 1997 Honda Civic, I am now the proud owner of a silver '01 WRX, I absolutely love it!
    It handles like it on rails, and it has more than enough power for my daily drive haha.

    What's been done to it;
    -18" rims
    -STi scoop
    -front strut brace
    -turbo timer
    -exhaust

    I do have some plans for it;
    -fuel pump
    -ecu reflash and tune
    -front lip
    -lowering springs
    -sound system
    and slightly tempted to paint the roof black

    thanks for reading, and here it is!

    Very nice find.

    If you can find a cheap set of the stock wheels, they look better than those IMO. Better yet BBS RK028 which were the optional 17".

    I have never seen an Impreza with a BBS RK's on them here in Australia, at the moment im pretty happy with the way the car looks, a little lower and i'd be fine with it.

    anyway, today i got around to putting most my sound system into it,
    -Pioneer MVH8250BT headunit, with cutting of the fascia
    -JL Audio XD700.5 amp
    -JL Audio HO112RG-W3v3 sub

    and on the way i have
    -JL Audio C5650, 6.5" splits
    -JL Audio C5525X, 5.25" coaxial speakers
    and I'll use sound deadening here and there
