I went today with my dad to Carmax ( a large chain, reputable, used car dealer ) and purchased a silver Impreza Wagon. This is my first real car, before I was driving a mini-van that was given to me by my dad; it lacked AC, a major problem in Texas.
I have not been able to get good daytime pictures, but I do have these shoddy night ones. ( http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v3...os24/my%20car/ )
I feel a bit ignorant, the whole buying process happened rather quick, so if anyone can give me some quick details about my car, namely what year it is ( its too late to go back outside and check the manual ).
I hope to become an active member of this community. I know a fair deal about cars, my first job was at an auto shop, I'm hardly a know it all however. As to Subaru's and the whole boxer engine design, I'm at a complete loss. I had very little intention of buying a WRX, so I did not have near enough research done. I plan on catching up on all this in the next couple nights.
As for future aspirations about the car; I'd only like to mildly tune the engine, I/H/E. I am considering possibly some suspension work, but I doubt a full coilover setup. As for interior and car audio, I am very happy with everything now, and will probably leave as-is. Overall, I'm going to wait until I learn the car before I do anything at all. My budget is going to be tight for a while, as I still have to pay off this laptop, and now have payments and insurance to deal with.
As for a quick personal intro: I am 16, really into the Japanese tuning scene, specifically rally and drift. I have been working at a restaurant now for half a year, with no intention of leaving. Back when I lived in Houston, I used to attend car meets all the time with my step brother and his ( now totaled) SRT-4. Now that I have a decent car to go to these meets myself, I would love to hear about some in the Austin area.
I think that pretty much covers everything, if there are any other questions, I'm almost always reachable on AIM at: zaxlapcomp
