    Stock wheels with tires. I dont really want my car to go to the paint shop with my wheels on it. The tread of the tires doesnt really matter much either.

    Hey guys- Anyone have a 15" steel wheel (5x100) that I can pick up today? A free one would be awesome if possible, otherwise I'd be willing to pay up to $20.

    I ran into a curb last night (the median outside SOSVM) like a dumbass... My car is currently sitting in their lot. I'm just glad I didn't invest in wheels this summer.
    Don't you bring that weak tot action

    Oh man.. So after a really rough and long month, my insurance company finally decided to fix my car. So next Monday my car goes into the body shop for the second time in the 9 months I have owned it.

    Some stuff that makes it cooler, unless you work for Subaru, in which case it's completely stock.

    She kicked the **** out of it. The bad part of it is that my insurance company put me under investigation. They called Dave and Dallas about my car and everything.

    List of parts needing replacement:

    Grille
    Grille Emblem
    Hood
    Hood Scoop
    Front Bumper Cover
    RF Fender
    LF Fender
    RF Inner Fender Liner
    LF Inner Fender Liner
    Rear Trunk Lid

    Morette Headlamp Covers need to be fixed as well.

    Basically, I went to Fred Meyer to look at a Christmas gift for my wife. We are having a little boy the end of this month and we want his bathroom to be rubber duckies. We have looked for rubber duckies stuff around town for about 6 months. We finally find some at Fred Meyer. Well, it was on sale like 30% or something when we saw it. So I figured at lunch Id go down and take a look. Well I got there around 2:05 in the afternoon on 10/24. I parked near NOBODY since my car was flawless already. I walked in, headed directly for the rubber ducky stuff and saw it wasnt on sale. I looked at it for a little while, picked some up, put some down, whatever. Actually decided NOT to buy any (see how there is nothing linking me to actually being there.). So around 2:30 or so I walk back out of Fred Meyer to my car. My cars trunk lid is facing me, I notice it looks weird. I walk closer notice the back end is caved in. I look closer and see a shoe type print on it. Look up front see both fenders kicked in. I saw the front bumper gouged, hood walked on as well as the scoop. The trunk lid also has the word "worthess" written in it... (yes the misspelled worthless...) Headlamp covers are scratched and I didnt notice the grille til I popped my hood to straighten my intercooler fins that the grille litterally fell out...

    So anyway, after a month of my insurance company basically calling me a liar and a fraud. They decide hhhmmm.... This guy isnt really lying to us, he just has really ****ty luck sometimes, they decided to fix my car finally.

    Haha, yeah, well, I bet he has an idea. I bet his ex-wife does too.

    And no one saw this happening? Someone jumping on a car and kicking it? No parking lot cameras at Freddy's?

    Maybe it's time to switch rides Bo, your car is marked. Might as well have a big red flag on it that says "THIS IS BO'S CAR!!"

    Yea I am actually looking at selling my car after it gets out of the body shop. I know Dallas and Dave have seen the paint quality, but it will only be better now. Flawless Sonic Yellow paint. There isnt a wave, dimple, ding or dent in this car. It is the ONLY Sonic Yellow in existance with a Sonic Yellow trunk lid with no rear wing spoiler. This color came as a package with the rear wing spoiler.

    $15,000 dollars will get you the following.

    2003 Sonic Yellow Bugeye 61,000 miles

    60K done at SOSVM new plugs, front and rear brakes, valve adjust

    Factory upgraded sound system with factory subwoofer

    Factory short shift kit

    3rd brake light delete

    Lowered with Sprint Springs and Ingalls camber kit, camber/toe/caster is set at a perfect daily driving/autocrossing setup.

    K&N Panel filter with removed silencer

    18" wheels and tires

    DC Sports up pipe

    Grille "i" badge in blue

    $16,000 dollars will get you all of the above plus

    Custom Painted Morette headlamps

    Cobb Accessport Flashed to Stage 2

    APS Turbo Back exhaust system

    Kartboy Shift knob

    All stock parts will come with car as well.

    I really cant stress enough how beautiful this car is in person. Subaru produced less than 1500 WRX Sedans/Wagons with Sonic Yellow paint ONLY in 2003 for the US. Some of those are automatic, some are manual. This car to the best of my knowledge is the only one of them with a factory trunk lid with no spoiler and no spoiler holes.

    While I hate to see you do this, I can understand and empathize. Sometimes, you have to pick your battles.
