    BMW specialty tools for sale...

    Hello all! So Sunday night, instead of buying my fourth Bimmer, I just bought a brand new WRX. I am convinced that the WRX is more of a utilitarian machine, and it better suits my active lifestyle, but can it be built into the ultimate driving machine? Im going to find out. I know that is purely subjective, but I will be the judge. =) I've never owned a Subaru, so I am truly a newb. The boys on bimmerforums.com would have a heyday if they knew that I was reduced to only 1 turbo, and 4 cylinders pointed in the wrong directions, but the truth is this: I needed a fresh start to an old hobby, and Im real excited about my new ride. I have lots to learn, but let the mods begin!
    PS- The new Cobb shifter knob and shifter bushings are on the way.

    welcome to the forums. Its a apples to oranges comparison, but at least you dont have to worry about your HPFP anymore =). Nothing wrong with the flat 4, people forget this other german company called porsche like flat engines too. But I'm hoping to get a m235i in the future. I'm waiting to see if they have the same HPFP issues the n54 and early n55 engines did.

    The funny thing is I did the same thing a year ago and I haven't looked back! I had a 1999 E36 M3 I bought used and owned for 5 years(not my daily). My subbie is def the better one of the 2. I had my fun with BMW and I will own another in the future but for a daily the WRX is that way to go. You also bought the same color and style as me! Have fun with it. I know I am!

    Haha...I've had 2 n54s, and neither were a part of the recall, nor did I have any problems...but the worry always did sit in the back of my mind. The only way I could compare the two brands is by how big of a smile they put on my face. The Subaru is already doing for me, and I haven't even completed the break-in yet. That's a good sign! Good point about Porsche. If that m235i is anywhere as good as the 1m, it will be another epic driver's car, only not quite as limited in numbers. I will have to drive one in the near future!

    Nice! I'm sure that I will have no regrets.
