Default Boobaru2: 2000 Aspen White sedan!

Welcome to my journey of ruining my RS sedan, bit by bit.

This journal is SO outdated, I am going to go through and re-write my story of how I have ruined this car over the past four years

The last time the car looked simple and clean.



So, I owned a 2000 RS coupe named Betty the Boobaru (Betty the BOOBaru, 2000 RBP RSTi coupe) I had an awesome time building her... But I decided it was time to search for a house and chose to sell the car for extra money. I knew I couldn't go without an RS, so I was searching for a cheap, not so rusty car to start with. Oh, and I wanted a SEDAN this time

I found this 2000 aspen white sedan FS on here and on eBay. I threw in some bids and ended up winning the car for $2,550. I went and picked her up in MD in April 2015...and then sold Betty in June.







The car was mostly stock when I picked it up, but it did have a coupe spoiler and JDM taillights! oh...and had blue front calipers, drilled rotors....and it was automatic

The first thing to go was the auto trans. I picked up a rusted out, motorless parts car for 800 bucks. Parted everything else out and boom, free 5spd swap













Once I had a proper transmission, I started adding things here and there...

- JDM 22b vents
- MRT highrise hood scoop
- amber corners
- JDM rainbow foglights

- euro WRX front and rear seats
- extended armrest with CF cover (from Zealous)
- custom visors, black with pink stitching from JPM coachworks

...and some other stuff that I will have to remember and add to this...

Added ISC n1 coils and threw my volks on



Repainted the front calipers black, and dipped the wheels teal!





AND! Things to do before snow

- winter tires (on stock 6 spokes)
- JDM STi v6 suspension
- ball joints
- starter
- brakes (picked up new-to-me calipers with pads and rotors, and new stainless lines and adapters. bought rebuild kits for the calipers and will be repainting them.)
- gaskets/plugs/oil change on the motor

I have been super busy with work and just driving the car, adding things here and there. More posts and pictures to come!

Fast forward to the summer of 2016, after telling myself over and over that I wasn't going to STi swap this car and spend a lot of money on it...

I found an STi swapped L coupe FS near me, and for a good price.

Thestory’s STi Swapped L

I bought it, swapped the goods into the sedan, and parted and scrapped the rest.

I drove the car like that for a bit with small changes here and there like an oem v5 spoiler, a roof rack, powdercoated the volks teal, and a carbon hood.

Then about a year ago, I had the car cut up and the fiat flares installed. Started with ESR wheels and then went to the 3pc SSR MS1's

A few pictures of the different looks she has had up to this point:
