My name is Nick. I am 25 and I have always loved Subarus. From a young age of 11, when I had first caught a glimpse of the World Rally Championship on Speed TV to be exact! I remember seeing the bugeye make it on the scene in the WRC and I was just so amazed to see racing as exciting as this. I was immediately drawn to the bugeye and my parents ended up getting me 'Colin McRae's Rally Racing' on Playstation (one). Unfortunately the bugeye wasn't on that game, but they still had the Impreza (22B). Needless to say, I played this game nonstop!
I got older and always admired the Impreza and always broke my neck to look at one when I would see one drive by. I grew up wishing that one day I could own one and never really saw it within my ability to actually afford one. Fast forward to now, I joined the Military a few years ago and immediately started looking into buying one but certainly couldn't afford one lol. I bought a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon because it was within my price range and it got me from A to B pretty quickly but certainly wasn't a fast car. Finally after crunching numbers I realized I could afford a bigger payment for a car that I really wanted to have. I found a bunch of candidates that I wanted to buy, however ended up buying one of the cheaper offerings, just to avoid paying too much overall.
I bought a 2013 WRB 5 door. It has 20k miles on it. I love this car more than anything. I cant believe that I actually have my own now! My overall happiness is at a level which I haven't felt in what seems to be ages. I love looking at this car, I love driving this car, and I love seeing myself in this car.
I have been reading a lot on these forums and NASIOC but decided to become a member here first and see how it goes.
Plans for the car
Stage one reflash first
Catted downpipe and stage 2
Cobb STS or Kartboy (need to do some more research regarding the two)
Front and Rear Sway bars
Cobb intake with SF box
Once those mods are out of the way I will probably leave the "performance" alone and work on aesthetics
Mudflaps, Front lip, wheels and tires, (unsure of wheels that I want.) I would like to lower it about 2 at most. (if I stay on a 17" wheel)so far that's all I have really thought about off the top of my head. Pictures Will be added later. I haven't had a decent opportunity to do some photos of her yet.
I am glad to be a part of this community on Club WRX and the Subaru community as a whole!
