    I'm Baaaaaack......

    Hey fellaz I'm coming back home! Let me give you a brief history on myself. Back in 03 I purchased a brand new Sonic Yellow WRX. During the 8 months that I owned the car I added a Wings West full lip kit, STi hood scoop, Tein S-tech springs, HKS BOV, and 18" Rota's. I had also purchased a set of JDM headlights, but never got around to installing them. Well at the end of that 8th month of ownership some kid in his mom's Grand Am pulled out in front of me without looking. Long story short, my WRX was totaled (he was at fault and thankfully I opted for GAP coverage).




    Soooooo after that I purchased another vehicle. A 2001 Lexus IS300. What attracted me to this car was the almighty 2JZ-GE engine. Boost was a must so about 6 months later I added a turbo to her. With the set-up I ran she was pushing 360hp (crank). BTW I'm in the military and currently stationed in Germany. On the Autobahn this car was a blast to drive. 2 Months ago the Grim Reaper came knocking at my door asking for the keys again. Black ice, bad tires, 2 360's, and bam.....she was gone. Once again full coverage & GAP stepped in to save the day. Plus the damage wasn't too bad and the turbo set-up minus the I/C & BOV were saved and sold.






    So after all of this I'm returning back "home". I have looked at all the possible cars out there that I could purchase. I've considered a C6, MB C230, 350Z, GTO, and even a VW GTI. But nothing can compare to the feel and enjoyment I had with my Suby. Also AWD is a BIG plus. However this time I'm stepping up a level to a brand new 06 STI. My only problem now is choosing between WRC blue or Aspen white. I will purchase her within the next month and have her shipped here to Germany. I'll be sure to post pix, and once again it's good to be back.

    BTW my screen name used to be YeloFvr but I can't get my password back because I no longer have the e-mail I registered with.

    Thanx. Yeah, she will forever be missed. I'm surprised they haven't re-introduced that color again. I'm leaning towards Aspen white. IMO WRC blue looks great but too many people have it. That and silver.
