I've had the car since it was new (9/2004) and have always babied it through the years. My intention was to keep it forever by changing the oil every 3,000 miles and completing the regular scheduled maintenance myself. It has only been filled with gas from Chevron or 76 (91 in CA and 92 in WA). I have never actually launched the car, pulled the e-brake while moving for whatever reason, or abused it in any other way. For 6 of the 7 years of owning it, it was garaged in California until I moved up to the Pacific NW.

All the modifications have been chosen very carefully (ie. I never bothered with an aftermarket BOV or manual boost control). Nearly all modifications I've done/installed myself since I am an engineer by training and (over)protective of the car. No internal engine upgrades, but instead basically all the bolt-ons one can think of for a very reliable, street-friendly power band. Car runs flawlessly and motor is strong as expected with the relatively low mileage, power mods installed, and work of great tuners (Jon Drenas, Tim Bailey, Mike Warfield). On the AccessPORT there are two current maps for 1. Pump gas w/ EWG, 2. Pump + methanol/water injection w/ EWG (both by Jon Drenas), and one older map for 3. For the VF39 internally-gated setup (by Tim Bailey).

Although the current suspension and brake setup is mostly stock now (I should say OEM Subaru), I’ve had a variety of aftermarket setups for most of the car’s life. For example, I ran KYB struts, Prodrive springs, Tein Flex, Brembos, Subaru 4-Pots, Wilwoods, even Nissan 300ZX calipers one time or another. What this simply means is the actual mileage on the currently-installed corresponding OEM parts is much less than the ~55,000. It’s currently lifted for that beastly Pac NW-look. It's aligned to factory specifications and I have lifetime alignment from Firestone on the car so I can get another alignment before selling.

As far as incidents, it was involved in one (very minor) accident in 12/2005 that led to a rub-mark. This was all of the damage before the repair:

Full details of accident: I was stopped for a red light at an intersection, and the car directly behind me who was also stopped for the light decided to accelerate a little faster than me once the light had turned green. He was probably going 3 mph whereas I was going 1 mph (we hadn’t even passed the intersection yet). Being anal as I am, the bumper cover was repainted/color-matched at the best shop I could find in SoCal (Quigley’s in Lake Forest, same shop that painted the car for Fast and the Furious…seriously) so as to render it good as new. It's probably not even worth mentioning but I am not trying to hide anything whatsoever.
