Hello everyone, new member here from Madison WI. Bought my 02 WRX in late Nov of 2011 after 9 BMWs, and so have had absolutely 0 regrets!
I got it with 167k on the clock, bone stock except for a boost gauge and an AFR gauge for $4900. Since then it's hit 200k on the original turbo/motor/trans, gone Stage 2 (at 170k) with Cobb tuning, Cobb drop in filter, cat-less uppipe, and a full 3" TBE. It's also gone through 5 sets of wheels, 4 wings, been keyed about 19 times, had the stock wing ripped off by vandals, but has never left me stranded or stuck in any weather. I couldn't be happier, and I still look back at it when walking away which pretty much says it all
How it looked when I first showed up to buy it:
