    Smile Hi my name is...

    YO! My name's JT. I live in the 626 of Souther California and currently (unfortunately) drive a '06 Scion xB, and am trying desperately to sell the toaster and scoop up an 02-05 WRX Sedan MT. I went through some unfortunate short-comings on my box project and decided it was time to start all over, with a much MUCH faster car.

    I was just seeing if people have any input as to whAT I should be looking out for specifically on the WRX when I'm purchasing a car? I have never had a boosted car so I have no clue as to maintenance or what have you. My plan is to just by a non-modified WRX and take it to a Subaru dealership to get the entire car serviced/maintenenced to the standards of a "certified" used Subaru coming off of the lot. <- Anybody recommend this? How much will it run me? Or should I just get one from the dealer to begin with? Pros and Cons of WRX?

    Thanks all helpful suggestions are very much appreciated. I'm planning on getting ths subby by June (this summer sometime). So hopefully very soon I will be seeing you on the streets/highways/trails/etc.

    Welcome to the Club, JT!

    JT,

    You're definitely making the right choice by dumping the Scion and getting a car that is, well, actually worth being seen in!

    IMHO, getting a "vanilla" WRX and get it reconditioned to factory specs is your best bet. That way you have some sort of benchmark and it makes it easier to measure the impact of each mod you end up doing.

    If you were local to us here in sunny South Florida (well, sunny except for today apparently), we'd love to assist you in your search. But seeing as you're out there in CA...

    In any case, once you get your hands on your WRX and are ready to start your mods, let me know! In the meantime, you can check out AccardiParts.com. We carry the complete line of genuine Subaru SPT and STi performance parts.

    YO! thanks for the welcomes!! I have my mind set on the "vanilla" (white? LoL) wagon. I realized after having 3 black cars prior to this one, that I suck at maintaining a black car. therefore... WHITE! I will definitely check out these links while I'm bored at work. Again, thanks for the welcoming. Hope to sell my box soon, I'm feaning for some HP!!!

    PEACE.
