    No more Mitsubishi .. Hello 2013 WRX Hatch..

    Hi, i've been driving this '95 GST Eclipse since '98.

    The Beast at Rest by bhop, on Flickr

    I finally decided to trade up and was looking at '08 Evos, but the lack of useability from the non-folding trunk swayed me towards the WRX (I cycle and snowboard), plus a new WRX is the same price as a 2008 Evo around here.. so a couple nights ago, I bought this 2013 WRX Hatchback. So far, i'm loving it. I wish the sound system was better, but that's the only gripe really, and it's not even that big a deal. I don't have any mod plans for it, except maybe lowering it a little, but we all know that can change after a while.. (desire for mods I mean)

    Nice pick up! Congrats.

    That DSM actually looked nice as well. Not all riced up and classy looking.

    Sound system is easily remedied with a head unit replacement as it is very under powered. And yes there are harnesses to retain bluetooth and the steering wheel controls.

    I don't have more pics online, but I can give you the list of mods.. they're pretty mild..

    18" Enkei RS5 wheels
    Eibach pro-kit sprints with Tokico illumina shocks
    2.5" downpipe
    Road Race Engineering hi-flow cat
    3" Apexi N1 catback
    HKS super mega intake
    ACT 2100 clutch
    greddy type-s bov (stock is plastic and leaks)
    changed some of the bendy plastic intercooler piping to nicer smooth metal pipes

    I think that's about it...I still have it since the dealer only offered me $600 for it.. So It needs to go..I had a lot of fun in that car though.
