Hey guys, my name is Shannon I'm 19 and I live in Adelaide, Australia.

A couple weeks ago I made the upgrade from my 1997 Honda Civic, I am now the proud owner of a silver '01 WRX, I absolutely love it!
It handles like it on rails, and it has more than enough power for my daily drive haha.

What's been done to it;
-18" rims
-STi scoop
-front strut brace
-turbo timer
-exhaust

I do have some plans for it;
-fuel pump
-ecu reflash and tune
-front lip
-lowering springs
-sound system
and slightly tempted to paint the roof black

thanks for reading, and here it is!

Very nice find.

If you can find a cheap set of the stock wheels, they look better than those IMO. Better yet BBS RK028 which were the optional 17".

Thanks guys

I have never seen an Impreza with a BBS RK's on them here in Australia, at the moment im pretty happy with the way the car looks, a little lower and i'd be fine with it.

anyway, today i got around to putting most my sound system into it,
-Pioneer MVH8250BT headunit, with cutting of the fascia
-JL Audio XD700.5 amp
-JL Audio HO112RG-W3v3 sub

and on the way i have
-JL Audio C5650, 6.5" splits
-JL Audio C5525X, 5.25" coaxial speakers
and I'll use sound deadening here and there

Looks great! You should consider getting your OEM sideskirts painted to match. I love the way your car sits and I think that would compliment your car's fantastic stance! Add front and maybe rear lip and she'd be looking meaner than ever!
