About “wrx”

This is my wrx. She's preety stock other then a few alterations listed below(too lazy to copy and paste). No penny saved when it come to my wrx, full syntheic oil, subaru parts( i even bought the subaru tear down manuals, $256 for 5 of 9 manuals!!) when i can. About the only other cool thing that sets my wrx off is that there are only 3 in my 150 mile radius! not too shabby for a daily driver huh?
