    Not new here, but now have another WRX

    Hey all. most of you know me from posting on here along with having a couple of Subaru's in the past. I just bought another one... 2003 WRX, silver. Previous owner was a friend of mine.

    Invidia downpipe
    K&N short ram intake
    perrin rear sway bar and endlinks
    Eibach prokit springs
    kartboy SS
    wheels/tires (17in)
    magnaflow exhaust (custom built)
    different splitter in the scoop (zero sports or something..I will have to look again)


    That is all I can think of at the moment. Accessport will be ordered today or tomorrow.

    here is a quick picture I took over the weekend.

    Looks great - I love the wheels.

    As you can see I test drove a WRX and was not too impressed. What are your thoughts? I think based on so many rave reviews that maybe I test drove an abused one.

    Nonetheless how does this 03 handle/drive/etc.. Just curious.

    Nice car!

    The 2003 drives good. Not much difference between the bug eye and blob eye models as far as driving goes. i had a 2005 wrx last year.

    i like mine. try driving another one sometime.

    OK, I just have to know, what have you been driving that you're not impressed by a WRX? I've owned a boatload of cars including some of the best of the muscle car era. My WRX the best all-around car I've ever had. Not as much raw HP as, say, a 428 SCJ Mustang, Not as precise in the handling department as my old 76 V6 Sunbird, but definitely an impressive balance. I will agree that the STi si the way to go if you have the money, but a regular WRX is no slouch in either the power or handling department.

    Good luck with this one....personally I think you would have been happier just finding a used sti and being done through.......it does look good from the pictures.

    Are you kidding? He won't be happy with any one car! I know the feeling, I just can't afford to jump around, and I don't have the good fortune to get the kind of offers for my cars Seth gets for his.

    now i just gotta figure out what mods I want to do outside of the AP. I would like to do a brake upgrade..maybe the ones that come on the 2006 models.

    would like to do a turbo upgrade down the road, but want something that is still streetable, can be taken on road trips, around town, etc and still make very good power using a custom tune with the AP.

    The 4/2 pots are nice, but they need some larger rotors and a better pad. Everytime I start to think to myself "I dont know what the hype is about 4 pots" I find myself in a situation where I need to quickly and firmly put the stop pedal down....and they do it with surprising confidence. In short 4/2 pots with larger rotors, better pads, some SS lines and a quart of good fluid would be a great upgrade.

    Nice man. That should hold you over for a while. Or at least till someone comes in with another sweet trade-in.
