Hello my name is Randy and I am from San Jose California. I drive a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5rs and have been modding it since. This is my very first car and I've had it since: November 27th, 2010 and She has went a long way from then.

This is how she looked with the previous previous owner:

This is how she looked when I took her home:
When we got her we spared no time but to start cleaning her up, I admit that I was blinded by love when we inspected the car, I straight up did not notice the huge chunks of dirt slabbed into the jams and trunk dam. There was a lot of things that I did not notice either such as dents and paint chips, but who cares, I'm a new proud owner of a 2.5RS.
The first thing I did was changing the rims. I went out and bought my all time favorite rims in the best color possible, VOLK TE37 in Royal Bronze.
Little did I know that those exact rims had previously been on this same car during the first purchase from the dealership in 2000. These rims are as old as the car!! "reunited and it feels so right." right? lolol.
After that I've scored on a set of stock side skirts from RS25 member: Kaimino (who rolled his car) and installed them the same day.
The car looked 10x better with the installation of the original stock side skirts. I rode around with this look for a long while actually, I've always liked stock look and how subtle it is.
Then a year into owning this car my headgasket blew, as you look closer you'll notice the coolant on the front bumper. So I opted for a motor rebuild with machined heads and everything which was performed by my brother.
