    I haven't driven a new Forester... maybe you're talking about blind spots there?

    I promise there is not a single Toyota with better vis than the previous model Forester, except maybe the Sypder when the top is down.

    God, don't get me start on Toyota.

    Nice Subies in here.
    Don't have one (Yet!), but i'm gonna be in the market soon for a 3rd Gen Outback 2.5L. Had a recent kid and need the added space of a wagon. The Outback fits that need (and the need to haul bikes and gear to the trail) perfectly. Just need to sell my '89 BMW 325iX first. Anyone know anyone looking for a rare (only about 1500 imported into the US), old-school, AWD 4DR E30?

    Yeah, I read to documentation on that and it seems like you have to actually go meet the dealer to find out what the price will be? Feels like you're kinda halfway into the deal already at that point...

    I've done this with another organization that I'm a member of. You get all the local dealer promotions - interest rate, cash back etc... then you get the car at about 2% below invoice. Comes out to be a pretty nice deal for a Subaru and it's simple to do.

    Oh yeah, If I recall it was 2% below invoice. Simply called the dealer, gave them the number on my IMBA VIP form, they already had a copy from SOA, and went and signed the papers after a short test drive.

    Too easy.

    If you take into account my wife's 05 is an STi, then my bugeye has nothing on it...except better gas milage. Hers is spec'd out for STU also (minus the wing delete)

    Superorb....your name sounds familiar.....nasioc much?

    could be wrong though (I know our chapter is that way from what I have read/heard.)

    What I meant was I couldn't see the exhaust can on his car, it's normally on the left and I don't see it in the pics.

    I actually liked it with the muffler off, you can really really hear the boxer rumble. But yea, I have put it on since we have sound regulations this year.

    Nice cars! I have an 05 LGT. It's in he shop right now though...upgrading the turbo from a VF40 to an EVO 16G from Bryan at BNRSupercars. It has been my favorite car to date. It's a black 4door that is big enough for the kids but still very sporty.

    I have a Yakima Hold Up hitch rack that I put on to haul my bikes around. I used to have a full Thule roof rack but I took it off.

    At least you get snow. AWD and dry pavement is now here near as fun.

    Nice clean wagon BTW. I wish they made it with fender flares like the sedan. Have you seen the 2011 WRX hatch? Widebody now.

    ^^ I wish it had the wider fenders and same track, it's 2" narrower on the 02-07 wagons than the sedans. I do like the STi fenders on the 2011 models though. The thing that stinks about the new hatches is that there's absolutely NO room to haul stuff around in the back. I have a wagon b/c I haul crap around all the time, but I wouldn't be able to do that with an 08+ WRX hatch

    That's why I've been planing on buying an 06 WRX Wagon instead of an 08+. I'll still get the 2.5L but still have space to haul stuff.

    Hey guys,
    Great cars all around! I am in the market for an '02-'05 WRX 4 or 5 door and I had a few questions. As far as mileage goes, what should I be looking for? I will have this car for a pretty long time, so I was looking for something ~60k? Most I have found have upwards of 80k. Are there many issues when they get that old, timing belts etc.. that I should be on the look out for? Also, I am located in NJ if anyone knows of any good deals on the East Coast Thanks for the help!
    Happy Trails

    Don't get an 02, they have the weaker transmissions and the cold temperature fuel leak problem. You'll be hard pressed to find any 02-05 WRS with less than 60k miles without paying a huge premium.

    The style changes from 02-03 and then from 04-05. Whats your price range? I would not worry one bit about high milage on these cars, as long as they have been taken care of. I daily drive mine and race it on weekends, and never had a problem even with high miles.

    I give my 02 some pretty sweet 5k rpm launches at autox, and never had a problem besides clutch smell the entire run. And the 02 cold temp fuel leak should have been a free recall. The problem with 02-03 is they mostly have high miles, but WRX's are becoming more and more affordable.


    jesusrocks - Thats one of the best looking Outback I've seen!

    It's only a recall in 13 "cold weather" states. In all other states it is a warranty repair. They'll still perform the work, but in the recall states they won't have to diagnose it even though it's not states that they need to diagnose anyways.

    My computer with the car pics crashed today, as soon as I am back up I can post a few more. The grill is just carbon fiber looking tape applied to all of the chrome and the badge. It seems to be holding up well so far. Waiting for Grillcrafts new mesh grill for the '09 Outbacks to be released.

    Thanks... and I will investigate this dirtyimpreza.com you speak of...

    She's somewhat clean now (just hosed off, still really bad HAHA), but I suspect she'll get a good bath later today... then I'll keep her clean until it rains again...

    Updated picture with the forklift rack on, seems like a nice unit for the price. Someday I want to get ride of the stock rack and go with a full system from the ground up..but the forklift I fully trust for localish drives.

    Looks like your rear spoiler will smack into the rack That's why my bike carriers are all on backwards.
