I picked up this 1993 Subaru WRX from RHD Specialties last week and is my 12th Subaru, it has about 100k miles on it and it has catback exhaust, lowering springs with adjustable struts, black racing wheels, and HKS turbo timer. Going to be used as a daily driven car and will be modified along the way.

Getting use to RHD and KM was strange but doesnt take too long to get it down.

Car was originally silver but clear coat was peeling so the importer had it done in WRB pearl. The paint was cheap and had a ton of orange peel so I am getting it redone by a local guy who goes high quality work.

Looking forward to watching this as well, my fellow RHDer.

The thing that took a while for me was remembering to be mindful of the OTHER painted line on the road.
