I just picked up a couple weeks ago my first Subaru. It is a 2002 WRX wagon and love it ! Have owned a few more expensive cars but there is something about the Bugeye wagon that does it for me. Have not had this much fun in any other car I have owned. Bought it off ebay and came fully loaded with Whiteline suspension, RCE springs, Tokico, VF 30 Turbo, Godspeed, Scoobysport, COBB, JDM parts, and newer STI model upgrades. It is a automatic with Protorque converter, I know the manual is the choice most members prefer but I am very happy with having a enthusiast car in Automatic. Have a Great day !
