Default Long awaited 1st RS

I've wanted an RS for the last 2 years or so. Finally found one off of Craig's list listed for $2600 July 24, 2008. The previous owner hit a pole, and the owner that sold it to me replaced the hood, headlights and bumper beam(which turned out to be for a L model). He was loosing his garage, so I took it off his hands for $2200! I drove to Philly from Lancaster twice, and it was well worth it.

Engine:
Borlas
straight pipe
sti group n tranny/engine mounts
exedy lightweight flywheel
exedy stage 1 clutch

Suspension:
02' 20mm rear sway bar


Brakes:
90-94 turbo legacy vented rear brakes
03' wrx front brakes

Exterior:
V5/6 Grill
Clear Side lights
Clear turn signals
Clear side markers
JDM tails


Interior:
re-threaded red shift boot
black headliner

Only have a few quick pics my friend took for right now.. need to get a damn digital camera!

After RS bumper beam and front bumper were installed.. I have the grill but it wont match up with the holes in the front bar since some frame work is a little distorted
Also put on clear side lights



edit: so after some introduction to the subie world from me, my friend went ahead and got a 97' obs.. needs some work since some kid had it and went white spray happy inside and out.. but i like it!

Yeah I waited almost 2 years for my first subaru as well. Ended up buying a 2009 Forester XT first then I bought my 1999 2.5RS. I bought mine in PA as well. I'm originally from Pittsburgh now reside in CO. Looks like a good work in progress hopefully all the damage gets taken care of before all the modding happens.
