Hey guys, I have been lurking on here for a while, then last Christmas I came oh so close to getting a WRX, so I made an account here, but unfortunately the deal fell through. However, I FINALLY made things happen and got into my first Wrx!! I found a relatively low mileage, 1 local owned silver wrx a couple weeks ago and jumped on it and couldn't be happier.

100% stock, older lady that was a local doctor. So far I have cleaned it up cosmetically, new rotors and pads all around, and tinted the windows. I have new up/downpipes and catback exhaust, front and rear endlinks, new tie rodends all coming in hopefully soon. Keeping my eyes peeled for a nice set of rims/tires to really set it off.

Here are a couple pictures from last weekend when we were actually having nice weather. I gave her a quick bath, polished the headlights (they were REALLY hazy) cleaned the interior etc. These are the only pictures I have at the moment.







After a quick claybar and waxing, awesome reflection in my garage.





And finally a clean interior (it was pretty dirty when I bought it)

Hey, I am near Sudbury.

As far as suspension goes, more and more bushings are getting changed out, going to upgrade engine and tranny mounts, I have HSD coilovers coming, and upgrade to a hi-performance brake pad with SS lines, BMC brace and maybe upgrade to suby 4 pot calipers. Then of course a nice set of rims and tires forthe summer.

I absolutely love the stance of the car, rear height is perfect IMO, fronts need to settle and come down maybe 1/2-3/4 of an inch. I don't want it slammed or tucked or any of that hella flush bidness. I will try and get some photos today, I should really invest in a camera. Next on the list are some nicer looking rotors to hide behind these new wheels.
