So I sold my winter rig awhile back (2000 RS coupe) and have since been on the lookout for another Subaru.
I really wanted a black bugeye. But as much as I looked around I couldn't find what I wanted that wasn't rusted or in decent shape. I checked craigslist every hour on the hour, I even had the search term "impreza" on CL emailed to me every time an Impreza was posted Finally, I settled with an 07 2.5i. LOVE it. 127k miles, 5 speed, well maintained and female driven. It needs a little work, doesn't have a sticker at the moment but it shouldn't be an issue. Biggest thing is no rust, which was my main goal
WOW washing this thing without a massive hood scoop and a giant wing makes it so much easier
I want to get a roof rack, lip definitely, mud flaps, tint, fog lights and maybe a light bar, I'll probably throw the Rota's on when they're finished too. Headlight blackout like on the rex. Oh, and exhaust. Not sure what I'm going to do with that thanks to the 06/07 exhaust design But it should be nice. None of that stuff will happen real soon though, it'll will need some work to get going before I can think about modding it.
Mainly needs a timing belt, previous owner said they "thought" it was done but wasn't 100% sure. Not a risk I'm willing to take so it will get done asap. Also needs a rear strut for a sticker. Christmas tree lights all over the dash as well Was told it was just a sensor though as they pulled the code so I'm hoping it's nothing major (CEL and flashing cruise is what appears).
Anyway, that's it for now! Stay tuned!
