    New from VA w/02 wrx wagon

    Just bought a 5-speed '02 midnight pearl black WRX wagon last week. It has 194k miles on it, but I got a good deal on it and other than a few things it seems in great shape for the miles it has. It has the upgraded sound system, short shifter, triple gauge set, limited slip rear diff, and 17" BBS wheels all from the factory. Original owner put drilled and slotted rotors on it and a Mishimoto all-aluminum radiator on it. Needs a ds ball joint and a ps valve cover gasket. Going to change the oil, ball joints, and hopefully get it aligned and new tires this week. Then valve cover gaskets and spark plugs. Also going to replace the timing belt with a Gates racing belt with all related pulleys and new water pump. While doing that I am getting Mishimoto radiator hoses and ancillary hose set. Once all that is done I my first mod will be a cat-less GrimmSpeed up-pipe and resistor mod. New to Subaru, but not to working on cars.

    Nice man. I just recently purchased an 04 wrx with 170k in decent shape. You would never know it has that many miles. Anyways I will be going just about the same route with maintenance. Hopefully they keep on going for thousands of more miles haha.
