  1. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey all! I am in the middle of getting my '03 WRX wagon back on the road after, for many reasons, it sat 5 years. It developed some really awesome features like you would expect from a car sitting, including mold and it even became a mouse hotel. I spent a long weekend removing and cleaning the...

    Hello I am about to purchase a 2003 Impreza 2.0 WRX with about 60K miles. It is priced well below its usual price in the market (lets say about three thousand dollars cheaper). This Impreza is totally standard with no mods whatsoever. The car looks mint inside out, runs very strong. Engine has...

    I got an 06 WRX several months back, my firs Suby ever, and am loving almost everything about it.

I also noticed...

    Howdy y'all! I'm new here, but not new to Impreza's. I'm the original owner of a 2002 WRX grocery getter! She's 60,000 miles young! :tongue: Within the past 5,000 miles I've begun the process of modifying her. Currently she runs tasty M1 TDT 5W-40 as of the last oil change, but unfortunately...
