    New Member...some questions

    Hey guys, I just purchased a 2004 WRX Sedan wrb mtx with 44k miles. So far i love it, but I have a few questions.

    The guy who had it before me put a pink logo on the front grill and I really don't care for it. Where could I purchase the blue one?

    Also, when the E-Brake is up and you turn the car off, it keeps running like a turbo timer, but i wasn't aware the cars did this. Can someone confirm that this a stock feature, as I don't have the owners manual.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    you can buy a blue emblem on ebay or from a dealer. you can also get a grille without the emblem.

    running when you turn the key to "off" is NOT normal. maybe there is a turbo timer hidden somehwere?

    Chris, and welcome to The Club!!!!

    Turbo timers are definitely NOT stock, so check for one!

    Also, what does the pink badge look like? Is it the pink "I" badge or the one with the stars??? If it's the one with the stars, I'll buy it off you!

    And post up some pics of your subie!

    Welcome!

    Having the car run with the key out and in the off position is definitely not normal.

    That's a pic of her, sorry for the quality i'll get better ones when it's at my house.

    I don't know why there's a turbo timer installed, because there aren't any mods to the car besides exhaust. It's a borla with a big round tip. Sounds very nice. When i get the car I may take you up on your offer speedette. What's a pink star badge worth anyways?

    Nice WRX!

    I would imagine the pink stars badges are usually around $25-30 from what I've seen on Subaru Parts sites. They're just harder to find because they're only available in other countries. I've tried ebay, etc. but they make a lot of rip-off/fake ones. Bastards. But should you decide to sell, let me know and I'll make an offer.
